On Tuesday night with an ice storm looming, George Clooney worked the room, a very big room. The elegant Metropolitan Club featured its signature ice ...
The Monuments Men is fun, fairly light entertainment, more of a heist movie than a war movie, with a certain Indiana Jones-style treasure-hunting vibe at times.
As the evidence shows, Monuments Men would not have been in the awards mix. Well-made and honorable, it's also a movie that never achieves much momentum.
We reach out to people in hopes they will friend us and like our posts. But if we constantly verbalized all the glorious events in our lives, we'd have zero friends. The human race would despise us.
Water plays a central role in all aspects of life, from energy to food security, health and education. That is what makes it so complex to tackle. As water scarcity becomes all too real, collaboration will become essential
Here's a set of songs with suitably Green-ish hue -- starting with one by Miley Cyrus because I believe saving the world is even more fun than twerking.
Alarming concept: a TV series starring Flo, the Progressive Insurance lady. Matt Damon is having Jimmy Stewart's career. The Kardashians are having...
I know tap water can taste bad -- I taste it everywhere I go -- but can it also make you sick in the United States? At 2 a.m. in the hotel and with gurgling intestines, I was deciding if I should dissolve alka seltzer in that tap water or not.

In accepting the gross income inequality, obscene wealth gap, inexcusable corporate excesses, and blatant political corruption that we do today, we are already laying the groundwork for a real-world Elysium.
When the great actor Matt Damon recently said that President Obama "broke up with me," he hit the jackpot of telling political truth in the eyes of many progressive Democrats and independents.
Which space race is worth the airfare? Dare we say, maybe both?
Elysium, a new sci-fi adventure movie, is about a gigantic fancy space station that is reserved for the rich. To get some insight into space station technology, space tourism, and what it takes to live in space, I was able to interview Mark Uhran, who worked for NASA for 28 years.
Showing just how redundant things have gotten in Hollywood of late, Elysium, director Neil Blomkamp's lavishly expansive yet lovingly personal sci-fi opus, is actually the third flick this year depicting the aftermath of a global apocalypse.
