• Movie Review: "The Divergent Series: Insurgent"

    Teenagers are still on the run — when they’re not too busy killing one other — in “The Divergent Series: Insurgent” (Summit), the follow-up to last year’s kick-off of the futuristic franchise.

  • The art of dying

    This is not some sorrowful Lenten reminiscence with a litany of how I was scared by too-tough nuns. Although I will always remember asking Sister Angela Claire if I could get a drink of water one particularly scorching October day in the Valley ...

  • Movie Review: "Chappie"

    Frequently mayhem-ridden and only sporadically moving, the sci-fi drama “Chappie” (Columbia) offers a meager return on the considerable investment of persevering through its pyrotechnics.

     

     

  • Kevin Costner has his mojo back

    There are few present-day actors who are as beloved and as worthy of all-time icon status as Kevin Costner. After all, in one incredible stretch between 1987 and 1992, he gave the world this string of hits that have stood the test of time: “The Untouchables,” “No Way Out,” “Bull Durham,” “Field of Dreams,” “Dances with Wolves,” “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” “JFK” and “The Bodyguard.”

  • Film review: "The DUFF"

    Meet “The DUFF” (Lionsgate), a derivative comedy based on a demeaning premise: that certain students are branded the “Designated Ugly Fat Friend.”

  • Film review: "50 Shades of Grey"

    “Lifestyles of the Rich and Perverse” might be a more fitting title for the unusually explicit bedroom drama “Fifty Shades of Grey” (Universal).

  • The Loft

    Mendacious and just plain bizarre, “The Loft” (Open Road) is a grotesque parody of the most fundamental aspects of human behavior.

  • Black or White

    Large-scale issues of race and addiction are examined in microcosm in writer-director Mike Binder’s fact-based drama “Black or White” (Relativity).

  • Wendell Pierce, ‘Selma’ and the role of peaceful protests

    As a former cast member of the classic HBO series “The Wire” — considered by many critics to be the best TV series of all time — Wendell Pierce knows the feeling of being involved in a project that is as important as it is entertaining. But as one of the stars of the current movie “Selma,” which depicts the historic civil rights march led by Dr. Martin Luther King from Selma to Montgomery, Ala., he believes he’s in a project that can have an impact on America’s current troubled state of race relations. 

  • ‘Black or White’ and the ongoing race debate

    Race relations are known as the “third rail” in American discussions these days, the hottest of topics that people are still loathe to discuss in detail for fear that the conversation — and perhaps the relationship that goes along with it — could explode at any moment. And with protests over police treatment of African-Americans taking place nationwide in the wake of incidents like those in Ferguson, Mo., and Staten Island, it might seem that there’s no safe way for people to take these conversations down to a personal level at all.

Remains of Rebellion

Father Ed Benioff

Every generation in its turn is proud of its accomplishments — proud even to the point of arrogance. Usually we’re a lot more impressed than we ought to be. As we get older, if we are wise like King Solomon, we come to realize that “Nothing is new under the sun!”
