Funny People
Ordinarily, an article such as this warrants a spoiler alert, but since the only thing giving away plot details of the last hour of "Funny People" would spoil is a good nap, that disclaimer is null in this instance.

It's the requirement for these movies to champion the 'bad guy' as the hero of the film, casting them in a sympathetic...

Star Trek

Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I.
