Writer/director Joe Carnahan has a generic, unimposing name, the kind you would expect to see in the credits of a straight-to-video slugfest. And, in some ways, that is exactly what his sophomore film, Narc, is, except that it is filmed with such energy and bravado and boasts two performances by Ray Liotta and Jason Patric that are so impressive that it rises above its generic roots and be ... ...

We also cover the nation. Regional news too is a priority, as is our extensive world news coverage. For a Houston weather report, local news, breaking international headlines, or what's happening in sports, the Houston Mirror is for you.
Our Business Centre too is active 24 hours a day, bringing you the latest market updates from key global centres like Tokyo, Sydney, London, Paris, Berlin, and New York.

Fifteen years ago (December 4, 1998) an unusual movie was released, and roundly rejected: director Gus Van Sant's off-puttingly faithful remake of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. Fresh off the critical and commercial success of Good Will Hunting, Van Sant could've tried for another feel-good hit or a high-profile for-hire gig. Instead, he cashed in all his mainstream chips to not only ...

Generally, Nightfly doesn't see grown men order a drink simply by pointing at the menu, heads hung in shame. But from a rickety chair at Voodoo Queen (311 Milby) recently, we giggled in amusement at how often it was happening. Gentlemen beware. The frothy pineapple goodness of the bar's cheeky "Penus Colada" may be emasculating, but it's worth point-ordering anyway. You ...

I knew I was in the right place. I'd come here for a reason. When I'm having one of those days that only warm carbs and cheese can solve, I seek out the best pasta in town. And Ciao Bello never disappoints. Sure enough, in a matter of minutes, the first of three dishes was placed gingerly in front of me so as not to upset the delicate plating. There were four flat rounds of pasta ...
Scott Cooper tells in his somber drama Out of the Furnace, and he squeezes precious few droplets of energy out of it. The picture is earnest to a fault, coming off like an exploration of how "the little people" live, so carefully written that it veritably trumpets how remote it is from the grittiness of its subject matter. You can almost hear the gears humming: Out of the Furnace is ...

Dear Mexican, I find myself at odds with my peers because I don't like coffee or coffee drinks. I need to find a substitute beverage that will be tasty yet somehow hip. I've heard that Mexicans have magical chocolate drinks called atole, champurrado and chocolate, but I don't know what is in them or what they taste like. Do you have any advice? Thirsty in ...

When it comes to Iran's nuclear weapons program, the only difference between them is this: Ahmadinejad was a wolf in wolf's clothing, Rouhani is a wolf in sheep's clothing, a wolf who thinks he can pull the wool over the eyes of the international community.

Texas officials in Galveston have warned about a new drug that was found in the possession of school children.
During the week, school staff caught six eighth-grade girls with the new drug, a liquid form of meth.
News reports said the children had been found acting strange, with small tin foil packs that contained drug-laced pieces of paper, which were dissolved on the tongue.
They were all taken to hospital where they recovered. The hospital has since released the girls to their parents.
The Galveston County Sheriff, Henry Trochesset, said the drug had been sent to a lab, where it was found to be so potent it could be absorbed through the skin.
He said the girls may be charged with being in possession of the drug after it is ascertained where they purchased it.
