Under Review: ‘Jane Eyre’

Trailer Talk: ‘X-Men: First Class’

— by SHERICE ANTOINETTE — Finally, here’s a look at “X-Men: First Class.” From what is shown, Michael Fassbender (pictured at right) appears to be an excellent Magneto. As a fan of previous work, I had a feeling he would be. James McAvoy, whom I’ve grown fond of since “[...]

See More New Images from ‘X-Men: First Class’

— by SHERICE ANTOINETTE — This is much better. Michael Fassbender (Magneto) and James McAvoy (Charles Xavier) look pretty darn cool. Kevin Bacon — suave. January Jones, appearing very trim in her white leather outfit, still doesn’t do it for me. I really like the suit, however[...]

Under Review: ‘Fish Tank’

— by MARIUSZ ZUBROWSKI — The English have a term called “chav.” It’s usually used among teenagers and those of a younger-demographic. It has a multitude of meanings, but the predominate definition is “scum of the Earth” (according to Urban Dictionary anyway)[...]
