At its languid but intoxicating best, HBO's Treme dances and grooves to its own peculiar and particularly New Orleans beat. Call it the rhythm of life. And, naturally, death. But mostly life. Such is the case in the series' languorous 80-plus-minute finale, infused with sorrow but also overflowing with a defiant resilience and joy in the moment that captures the ebullient nature of this national treasure of a city.
Plot-wise? Let's not dwell on that. As Professor Creighton Bernette (John Goodman) told his students in the penultimate episode, before presumably stepping off the ferry to put an end to his blocked creative life, "Don't think in terms of a beginning and an end. Because unlike some plot-driven entertainments, there is no closure in real life — not really." Could be a testimony to Treme itself, which has taken some knocks for its often oblique approach to actual narrative. (Ominously, Cray added when asked about an upcoming test, "In the end, every one of us will be tested, and every one of us will be found wanting.")

Question: Welcome back! This question is a two-parter. I'm in love with True Blood. It's so often described as lurid, melodramatic, overripe, etc. But the glory of the show is that it's all of those things while also containing moments of startling humor or tenderness, where we actually find ourselves caring about the characters, be they supernatural or just plain natural. That tension is what makes....
Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3 had a huge play date with moviegoers over the weekend, earning $109 million to bow at No. 1 and become Pixar's highest-grossing opener ever, according to Box Office Mojo.
The sequel is the third animated film to crack the triple-digit mark on opening weekend — after 2004's Shrek 2 ($108 million) and 2007's Shrek the Third ($121.6 million) — and is the first Pixar film to do so. The previous record for a Pixar opening was the $70.4 million haul by The Incredibles in 2004.
