Rose review: American Gangster
There are too many movies being filmed in New York. Every single movie seems like it's a postcard to go to NYC. Don't get me wrong, New York is a beautiful place that looks like the movie Blade Runner, but what happened to the old New York?

Opinions: Clinton: not an evil harpy

PATE: It was about this time last week when I realized that I'd been judging the Democratic candidates based on their personal charisma, since I never bothered researching their views. Needless to say, Clinton came off pretty poorly in the fray; Obama's "articulate, attractive, intelligent young guy" vibe trounced her "nitpicking, evil harpy."
