Summer Entertainment Report Cards: TV Shows – Jersey Shore 2

This summer's reality shows lacked complexity, and tended to favour one overblown storyline over a more cohesive selection. Jersey Shore's Miami revamp is no exception. The silly idea-turned-cultural-phenomenon has primarily focused on the on-again/off-again relationship between last season's only serious couple: Ronnie and Sammi.

Summer Entertainment Report Cards: Movies – Scott Pilgrims Vs. The World

This is one of those movies throughout which you chuckle a bunch of times, have a few hearty glances at the person sitting next to you, and basically enjoy thoroughly. But I won't give it much more than that. It's a Toronto-based hipster extravaganza about girls who dye their hair, listen to cool bands, and have vegan ex-boyfriends, and guys who barely straddle the line between endearingly awkward and terribly inept.

Summer Entertainment Report Cards: Movies – Dinner For Schmucks

Dinner for Schmucks seemingly has a lot going for it: a funny premise (based on the French film Le Dîner de cons) and a big-name comedic cast. It turns out that sometimes the sum can be less than its parts.

FILM: Cutting-edged comedy

Dear Journal, what can I say? He drove a cool car, remarks a certain 13-year-old boy by the name of Augusten Burroughs in the new movie adaptation of the memoir Running With Scissors. Having read Burroughs' reminiscences of a homosexual boy with a 35-year-old boyfriend growing up in western Massachusetts in the late 70s, I was readily expecting golden phrases such as the former in the film's adaptation.

FILM: Scorsese scores (finally)

All things considered, Martin Scorsese hasn't made a decent feature film in over a decade. Gangs of New York seemed excessively brutal and utterly pointless, Bringing out the Dead sank like a stone and The Aviator, for all the accolades draped over it, hardly served its biographical purposes adequately and was a remarkably boring film.
