A bit plain, Jane

'Austenland' is sweet but simple

By Ryan Syrek
Since Stephanie “Twilight” Meyers is a producer on Austenland, the following question is fair game: Why are readers who fangirl out about Mr. Darcy from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice embraced or applauded while devotees of whatever-that-sparkly-vampire-dude’s-name-was are chided?

Vacant lots

'The Bling Ring' is purposefully empty

Crisis of context

'Fruitvale Station' isn’t just good, it's vital
