*1/2 (out of four) To say that this Chicago-set drama takes a long time to get going inaccurately implies that it ever gets going. Practically everyone thinks that Joe May (Dennis Farina) is dead. He's not, but he sure moseys slowly from hiccup to hiccup in a mistake-laden life that may only be redeemed if he can protect a woman (Jamie Anne Allman of “The Killing”) from her abusive guy. Writer-director Joe Maggio evokes a solid sense of place - multiple RedEye box sightings, what up!

Briciola 937 N. Damen Ave. 773-772-0889 Rating: 2.5 (out of four) Take it or leave it The backstory: When I'm dining out, I try to enter each restaurant with an open mind. But when it came to Briciola, a new BYOB Italian trattoria in Ukrainian Village, it was a challenge to tune out all that I'd heard. Just a look at the restaurant's early Yelp reviews - from gushing five-stars to scathing one-stars - made me wonder if everyone had even eaten at the same restaurant.

Thank the stars for Philip Humber. If the baseball season in Chicago truly is going to be as coma-inducing as the prognosticators say it might be, we'll need to live off the White Sox pitcher's perfect game for a while. I won't even mention how desperately we need a distraction from the Blackhawks' implosion. (Ugh, my bad!) Not that it's difficult to bask in Humber's masterpiece. The perfect game - and the no-hitter to a slightly diminished degree - is unmatched in individual, single-game achievement.

It's about damn time. Diablo 3 has finally been released! After waiting a decade for the next great epic tale of angels and demons engaged in a never ending battle as the lords of hell struggle to gain supremacy over the realm of the mortals… aw who am I kidding, the game is all about slaughtering demons by the truckload! Diablo has always been one of those games where you get warm fuzzy feelings by being an overpowered hero demolishing the forces of hell one imp at a time. The game has been in development for a very long time and now that it is finally released… was the wait...

Fans worried that the game, which came out April 24, might resemble a Southern fried version of "Call of Duty's" goofy Nazi Zombie mode should fret not. RedEye played through the first of five planned episodes ("A New Day") and found it to be so good we've come up with five reasons why even non-gamers need to pick up a controller and embrace it. A playable comic The good...

Is Chicago having a big year at the movies or what? One of the spring's biggest films ("Divergent") was set here, filmed here and based on a book by a local author. Now two of summer's biggest movies, "Transformers: Age of Extinction" and "Jupiter Ascending," plop the city back on giant screens, this time with even bigger stars (Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum/Mila Kunis, respectively). Yes, there also are "Spider-Man" and "X-Men" sequels on the way, plus "Guardians of the Galaxy," Angelina Jolie being evil in "Maleficent" and more Shailene Woodley in "The Fault in Our Stars.
