How I Met Your Mother-The Broken Code-Neil Patrick Harris and Josh Radnor
How I Met Your Mother returns to the pattern of nearly good yet far from great episodes. “The Broken Code” was supposed to be a big deal, but something about Ted and Barney’s confrontation was off.  The night wasn’t a complete waste—a Tim Gunn cameo is never a bad thing—but there was definite room for improvement.

How I Met Your Mother-Last Time in New York-Josh Radnor
If last week’s How I Met Your Mother was surprising, Monday's was a predictable let down. “Last Time in New York” signaled the final trip to the city for one of the gang, but the Big Apple deserved better. It’s not where they went wrong that worries us, it’s how long they’ll keep going in this direction.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2
The gang's all back for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, which finds Bill Hader's Flint Lockwood returning to the town he overran with food. As a second venture, this isn't on the level of Toy Story 2, which is the gold standard for kids film sequels (and sequels in general). That noted, it's nowhere near as insufferable as a...

Because the universe we inhabit is a vast, frightening expanse in which meaninglessness rules all, chaos reigns, and horrors and terrors befall humanity for no other reason beyond the cruel and simple fact that they can, The Smurfs film nearly made $600,000,000 in 2011.  As such, with a belly full of cold indifference, the universe (and Sony Pictures) has amassed its spirit-crushing...

Last night, How I Met Your Mother returned in fantastic fashion. “The Fortress” featured several appearances by Jor-El's floating head from Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. There were also countless cool (and pantent-pending) household amenities. When anything that awesome is involved, Barney’s the main attraction.
