  • Debatable beta

    Mac has the nerve to charge thirty bucks for a beta version of their OS -- and the orders start pouring in? WDET gets plugged in, and presidential candidates ignore web requests (surprise, surprise)…
  • Hold the handrail

    Fun at the Metro Times 20th Anniversary Party … Factory 81 ham it up with some ho's … Mascott releases a pretty album … & do yourself a favor and go see Grant Lee Phillips.

Arts & Culture

  • Urbania

    As hypnotic as director John Shear’s feature debut often is, it’s also a jumble that doesn’t quite add up to a satisfying whole. Yet it encapsulates the fear that something wild is lurking just beneath a city’s urbane facade, and that safety is merely a cruel illusion.
  • Girlfight
  • Girlfight

    Boxing movies traditionally focus on an underdog getting a shot at something better, and while director Karyn Kusama doesn’t stray far from this conventional story line, her film is radical and not because the pugilist is female. Here’s a sports movie that isn’t about winning.
  • Urban Legends: Final Cut
  • Urban Legends: Final Cut

    A lobotomized Scream 2 with a twist, Frankensteined together from ripped-off plots, characters and sets. First-time director John Ottman confuses climax with a burst of frenetic action that verges on the comic. He’s no Hitchcock.
  • Remember the Titans
  • Remember the Titans

    Director Boaz Yakin’s earnest, based-on-a true-story portrait of the 1971 high school football season, when a newly integrated team set an example for segregated Alexandria, Va. — with Denzel Washington.
  • Metropolis, Nosferatu &amp; South<I> </I>w/the Alloy Orchestra
  • Metropolis, Nosferatu & South w/the Alloy Orchestra

    Sound makes movie magic, suggesting place, time and mood. This weekend, the three-man Alloy Orchestra makes that magic live, hammering it from found objects and electronics as it accompanies three silent classics: Metropolis, Nosferatu and South — an experience not to be missed.
  • The Exorcist
  • The Exorcist

    They just don’t make ’em like this classic anymore. So what’s new in this year’s model? A digitally remastered soundtrack and 11 minutes of additional footage deliver a mixed bag of blessings and curses. And though it may not have the shock value it had in 1973, the horror remains.
