Chinese art attack

‘Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry’ is a moving middle finger

By Ryan Syrek
It’s impossible not to watch Ai Weiwei, dubbed by some as the “Chinese Andy Warhol,” tell his motherland to eff right on off without thinking one thing first and foremost: That dude has got some Buddha-sized stones.

Rednecks and white lightning

Recyclists

‘Premium Rush’ rides on clichs

By Ryan Syrek

Fender blender

I see clay people

'ParaNorman' is a socially responsible, animated 'Sixth Sense'

Comedians united

‘The Campaign’ is a 90-minute middle finger to SCOTUS

By Ryan Syrek
Writers Chris Henchy and Shawn Harwell move beyond the standard skewing of attack-ad politics and candidates that are either incompetent or lecherous. Oh, sure, they have fun with the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion, but the villains are the ones shouting “pay no attention to the douchebags behind the curtain.

Bourne to be bored

'The Bourne Legacy' meekly attempts Bond-style serialization

By Dave Taylor
The film opens with Cross in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness, having to fend off a wolf attack and survive an extraordinarily hostile environment until he meets up with another agent (Oscar Isaac). Cross learns he’s not the only Outcome creation and is then forced to make his way back to civilization after a drone attacks their isolated cabin.
