Graphic Novel Concept

Super

As snot bubbles billow and pop while tears trek down his moon-pie face, Frank D’Arbo (Rainn Wilson) wails to God, demanding he be told why the divine creator cursed him to be so oddly shaped and socially inept. Then, about five minutes later, he has a vision in which tentacles come out of the wall, bind him to the bed and cut off the top of his head so that God’s finger can touch his brain,...

Cutting Room for April 27

  • Jeremy Renner, who is somewhere between awesome and kinda creepy, has replaced Matt Damon. No, he hasn’t become Ben Affleck’s hetero life-mate; he’s going to step into the lead role in The Bourne Legacy. The story won’t see Renner as Jason Bourne but is likely to feature the same vomit-inducing shaky-cam violence and a seemingly complex (but really rather simple) plot. Congrats to you,...

<p>Iconic 82-year-old photographer Bill Cunningham discovers fashion and trends through his lens on the streets of New York, rather than the runways and studios you see in magazines or on TV. </p>

Bill Cunningham New York

What fashion magazines and reality TV shows expose in design studios and on the runway, 82-year-old photographer Bill Cunningham has found on the streets, night and day, of New York City. Vogue, Elle, "Project Runway," "All On the Line" and their ilk may have the cachet and ratings, but Cunningham’s weekly photo essay, On the Streets, in the New York Times has been in fashion for decades with...

  • If you want to get my attention, the words “deadly vagina serpent” will do it. Those three words were used in a description of a film featured in Splatterhouse Movie Night, an ongoing series at the P.S. Collective (inside the Pizza Shoppe in Benson) that will be starting on April 25 at 8 p.m. My second favorite part of the email I received on this subject was the note that minors are not...

Kids Slay the Darndest Things

Hanna

While many folks can hum the tune that is the ballad of the distant father, until your pops assaults you while you’re disemboweling the reindeer you murdered because he told you to, it’s best not to sing your personal song of woe to Hanna (Saorise Ronan). Because she may stab you in the eye hole.

Dressed in the trappings of spy games and science fiction — spy-ence fiction, if you will —...

  • It’s fitting that a movie with “thief” in the title is about to be part of a crime, as Alfred Hitchcock’s classic To Catch a Thief is getting remade. Although we don’t know as of now who will replace Grace Kelly and Cary Grant — thank goodness those two are so easily replaceable — we do know that the script will be written by Josh Stolberg. So no worries there; you definitely want...
