When is a teaser not a teaser? When it’s the flaming logo of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and audio clips of some of the most important moments of the previous movies in the series. Oddly, hearing Katniss progress from naïve District 12 girl to full on rebel is kind of exciting. Check it […]

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 could have gone wrong in so many ways that it’s a genuine relief to be able to say it’s infinitely better than the book – at least, so far. It’s smart and thought provoking while having considerably more action that I was expecting. In fact, it’s the best film […]

In real life, espionage is not glamorous. It’s like police work – mostly plodding detail work and following up and generally boring ninety-nine percent of the time. John le Carré worked in that field long enough that when he writes about it, he writes with a real understanding of mechanics of the spy game. His […]
We generally don’t do death notices here at EM because, frankly, I’m not qualified to write heartfelt obits on people. But Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of my favorite, criminally, underused actors. He first caught my eye in Boogie Nights, from there I loved him in just about everything he’s done. He won an Oscar […]
At one point in Moneyball, Oakland Athletics’ General Manager Billy Beane says words to the effect that, unless you win the last game of the season, nobody cares. Today’s game says that’s one of the few times he got it wrong.
