June 7-14 Podcast

Critic John Anderson reviews "Robin Hood, "Iron Man 2" and some of the less expensive films of summer 2010.
"Robin Hood" may be inexplicably dreary, and "Iron Man 2" may not match the lively wit of the original, but do not despair: the films of summer 2010 aren't a complete bust. Film critic John Anderson highlights some smaller films worth looking out for, including "Restrepo," a documentary about a platoon in Afghanistan, and "Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky," an aesthete's film if there ever was one. Anderson also discusses popular books that have made their way to the screen, including Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series and Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo.
