Review: Girls, Season 3 Episodes 1/2: "Females Only" and "Truth or Dare"

A couple nights ago, I ventured out into the frigid weather to go to a premiere for the first two episodes of HBO's Girls.  I gotta say, HBO, the Atlanta Film Festival, and the Plaza Theater really put together a fun shindig: there were photo opportunities (see above), popcorn with loaded candy fixins, and a live stream of the red carpet premiere in NYC.  It was a fun affair, but did the episodes hold up?  Be warned, as spoilers may follow!

Review: Her



As a genre, science fiction is difficult to define precisely. These stories often take us away to another place, time, species or planet and use those speculative creations as a mirror to explore the human condition. To that end, Her doesn't have a particularly strong science-fiction flavor, but it wields the tools of the genre with deft precision, at once convincing me it contained one of the best love stories I'd seen in the past year and leaving me to wonder if what I'd seen was actually a love story at all.

Harper's Top 10 Movies of 2013

2013 was an interesting year for movies.  Yes, we got a lot of the same in terms of sequels, remakes, and the like, but there were some strong moves towards a different playing field for films.  Science fiction and comic book movies continue to rise in the hands of strong auteurs (Gravity) and in more mainstream flicks (After Earth); we've seen many great filmmakers return for their newest features while some relatively new faces made very strong freshman works.  I didn't get to see everything--there are just so many movies and not enough time!--but I like to think I saw a good smattering of films this year.  So, without further ado, here are my top 10 favorite films of 2013!


10. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Directed by Francis Lawrence

I liked the first Hunger Games film.  It had a lot more societal and science-fiction ideas than I expected, and had great action.  However, it felt very self-contained, and I didn't really get a sense of the world these characters lived in.  Catching Fire fixed all that in my eyes.  It took the relatively simple concept and expanded it in a way that was fascinating, suspenseful, and very exciting.  The fact that it prominently featured the main host hotel for DragonCon in the infamous elevator scene didn't hurt either!

Alexander's Top 10 Films of 2013

Welcome, my friends, to 2014.

Last year was a good year for film buffs.  I think people probably say that most years - we are fortunate to live in a time where we have access to cinema from all over the world, and someone, somewhere is always innovating.  Despite being a year that led to numerous reports of being 'The Summer That Killed the Blockbuster' (tell that to 2015), 2013 produced not just a number of great dramas and comedies, but a handful of great blockbusters as well.  

There was something great for every viewer in 2013, and that's rare.  In a year this good, it's always hard to pick a Top 10 - and I haven't even seen a handful of the year's biggest releases yet, like Wadjda, Inside Llewyn Davis or Her.  But I tried.  I had to leave off some of my favorite films of the year (like Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Fruitvale Station, Upstream Color and Gravity) because it was just too competitive... but rest assured, there were a lot of great movies this year.  This was such a good year for film that two of my 'most disappointing' movies were nevertheless excellent movies that would make the Top 10 of a weaker year.

Read on for my own Top 10 Films of 2013!
