The 400-Word Review: High Note

After a fantastic pre-merge where all of the biggest names were dispatched early, the post-merge has been pretty much all about one guy.

For a movie about a high-tech science experiment, “Spaceship Earth” spends a lot of time with hippies making avant-garde theater.

Top Chef Recap
As the saying goes, there are only two certainties in life: death and Restaurant Wars. As teased in the last episode, the latter is at issue today.

Jah (Ashton Sanders), the protagonist of “All Day and a Night,” has a lot of anger.
