Today, I spoke from Los Angeles with Miller about violence in America and gun control, a topic that's less than two months after Adam Lanza's killing spree and former LAPD cop, Christopher Dorner, accused of hunting fellow officers.
The Russian Tea Room opened in 1927 (the restaurant closed its doors in 2002 and reopened in 2006) and is currently celebrating its 85th anniversary so recently I decided to pay a visit.
While the whole 'measure the cumulative weekend box office' trend is usually stupid if not dangerous, I must admit that this is indeed an 'everybody wins' weekend. Sony had the top two films, with one setting a record and the other merely opening in line with realistic expectations.
The film's palpable sense of honesty and authenticity is surely due to the fact that Chbosky not only wrote the film's screenplay, but also directed Perks in his hometown of Pittsburgh.
It wasn't so much a "something for everyone" weekend as it was a "multiple things for the same general audience" weekend.

Today's show talks about Ryan Lochte, Missy Franklin winning a gold medal and NBC ruining the surprise, a couple new movie trailers, and some celebrity news as well.

It's hard now to conceive of just how huge a star Marilyn Monroe was at the peak of her fame in the mid-1950s. Take Lady Gaga, multiply her by Brangelina at their most visible -- and then take it to the 10th power.
As if the development and implications of Watson weren't enough to win our affections for IBM, their new THINK exhibit at Lincoln Center may do the trick.
If recent developments are any indication, Hollywood has a genuine desire to roll back the progress clock and turn young female actresses into fairy tale princesses.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II is a very good film in the franchise, and a very good fantasy film in its own right. It is worth our attention and our praise.
I look forward to the day when I read the Harry Potter series to my daughter, and through Hermione's character, instill in her the desire to take control of her own fate and never be afraid to voice an opinion or show her intelligence.
