Fun Size

(PG-13) ☆☆☆☆☆

This Halloween film concerns a Cleveland high school senior (Victoria Justice) who misplaces her preteen brother (Jackson Nicoll) on trick-or-treat night. This film is a soul-crusher, completely devoid of any humor, point, quality or value. The narrative shape recalls other more successful one-crazy-night comedies such as Adventures in Babysitting, but it fails magnificently. I don’t know for whom the hell this bell tolls. Maybe it will toll for Nickelodeon-fed offspring, but I doubt it.

Political Candidates, Busted

By Danny Axelrod

Washington D.C.-based artist Melissa Ichiuji’s latest works are a brutal commentary on politics. The former Alvin Ailey dancer has seen success for her work with erotic soft sculptures, but for her latest exhibit, Fair Game, the imagery is stark and brutal. “I wanted to play with traditional portraiture and settled on doing busts,” Ichiuji says. “It’s a play on words in how the media is out there looking for the next sound bite or gaffe, ready to ‘bust’ political leaders from both parties.” Ichiuji brings two pieces and a slide show from her D.C.
