    Superfly rolls back the clock on African-American movie heroes
    This review contains spoilers. S uperfly appears to be superflopping. Released last Wednesday on 2,220 screens nationwide, the Columbia Pictures remake of the 1972 blaxploitation favorite has grossed only $10.7 million to date, a dismal figure for such a wide opening.

    Upgrade is so derivative, it's original
    Leigh Whannell's low-budget horror feature Upgrade, now playing in general release, reminds me of the goofy genre mash-ups made by Brian De Palma in the 1960s and '70s (Hi, Mom! , Phantom of the Paradise ) and Takashi Miike in the 1990s and the aughts (Fudoh: The New Generation , The Happiness of the Katakuris ).

    Police bust four for blocking streets
    Scottsdale crime fighter cheers 'nuisance crime' arrests By Tim Hadac Managing Editor Southwest Chicago Post Following through on a pledge by Chicago Lawn (8th) District Commander Ronald Pontecore to enforce laws against public nuisances, police have made four "traffic obstruction" arrests in the last six weeks in the Scottsdale area-a neighborhood where some residents have for decades complained about aggressive panhandlers at busy intersections-often with little or no response by police.
