Complete Buffy reviews: When she was bad

Summer is a Bummer? Not on your Noah and Nelly. The sun comes out. Lazy weekends sitting in the garden or the park with an ice cool beer or wine. Long, warm nights when the sun doesn't go down till 10. What could be better? For the residents of Sunnydale, however, it seems that Summer ain't all that. Xander's restless. Hank Summers is forced to cough up multiple dollar bills for his daughter's extensive shoe collection. Buffy herself is on another planet. Mentally speaking, of course. Possibly, the doom of a dormant Hellmouth subtly hypnotises people into thinking that the gloomy misery of Winter is a preferable choice to sunny, carefree days.

When she was bad sees us back for the shiny and new term at Sunnydale. You can tell that it's a new chapter in the big Buffy book, given that there's a few new subtle tweaks. Xander and Buffy have had haircuts.

Moneyball | Review

Director: Bennett Miller Writers: Steven Zaillian (screenplay), Aaron Sorkin (screenplay), Stan Chervin (story), Michael Lewis (book "Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game") Starring: Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright, Chris Pratt, Stephen Bishop, Ken Medlock, Brent Jennings, Kerris Dorsey Disclaimer: Despite becoming a bigger and bigger fan of the sport of baseball over time and numerous recommendations over the years, I have never read Michael Lewis' acclaimed 2003 book Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game and am therefore unable to speak about how true the film is to the book. That said, I was able to enter the theater without preconceived notions or expectations and can say that Moneyball is one of my favorite movies of 2011. Moneyball is based on the true story of how Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) bucked the system to field a competitive ballclub on a relatively miniscule operating budget.
