Look, we get it. You've been busy. You've had important things to do. You had to travel for Thanksgiving, and then you had to go shopping for holiday presents, and then there was that whole week of debauchery masquerading as culture that just ended.

And judging from the response it's getting at the Sundance Film Festival, the film h ... More >>

It's the realization that the annual Basel bacchanal will be over in just a couple days. Maybe you're already Baseled out, ready for all the ... More >>
Not all sequels are total garbage. Ghostbusters II, for example, needed, to happen. If we didn't have sequels, we would have never seen John Connor battle the badass, liquid-metal T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. And let's not forget Weekend at Bernie's II, if only for managing to ... More >>

We like to think of Here & Now as a blind date with select Miami artists and their latest work. Sure, we agreed to go, but we were a little anxious about what we'd find at Arsht's Carnival Theater. But matchmaker Miami Light Project hooked us up with interesting company for the night. There was ... More >>
