‘The Wire’: Must-watch HBO series from a decade ago

Amy and I just finished watching all five seasons of The Wire. While we were doing this, I was surprised by the number of people I mentioned this to who had never heard of the show. "The what?," they'd ask. "The Wire?" Yes — The Wire. The Wire was an HBO series that...

‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ (movie, 2009)

We have heard about "The Continuing Mysteries of Stieg Larsson" — his untimely death at age 50 before the publication of his Millennium Trilogy, and his fourth manuscript, so far unpublished and enveloped in controversy. We are aware that Stieg Larsson's Millennium...

‘Shopgirl’ (2005 movie, Steve Martin, Claire Danes)

I had imagined Shopgirl would be pretty good. Roger Ebert gave it three and a half stars. Steve Martin wrote the novel and the screenplay, and he's also the leading man. Claire Danes co-stars, and Jason Schwatzman has a supporting role. I like both of them. There's...
