  • 'Halloween Wars' sculptor turns his sights on pumpkins

    'Halloween Wars' sculptor turns his sights on pumpkins
    Jon Neill will carve a pumpkin in the 40-pound range Sunday in Laguna Beach, but for him, that won't be a big deal. To put it in mathematical terms, it's less than one 20th as big as the pumpkin he carved two weeks ago. The newly hired instructor at...
  • Silent River Film Festival gives poets a voice

    Silent River Film Festival gives poets a voice
    Under the glare of lights in a room typically kept dark for performances, David Worthington took the microphone and gave voice to a man who hadn't been heard that evening — not in person, anyway, in this theater half a world removed from his home in...
  • Reel Critics: This 'Wick' catches fire

    Reel Critics: This 'Wick' catches fire
    Gangsters from Russia are the new default mafia in recent crime thrillers. Denzel Washington in "The Equalizer" and James Gandolfini in "The Drop" battled vicious mobsters transplanted from the old Soviet Union. Keanu Reeves now joins the fray as the...
  • Reel Critics: 'American Sniper' right on target

    In Clint Eastwood's Oscar-winning film "Unforgiven," he caused the harsh light of day to shine on Hollywood's romantic notions of the Old West. In "American Sniper," he shines a severe spotlight on our ongoing wars in the Middle East by focusing on...
  • City Lights: We opine with abandon

    Sometimes it takes a huge event to make you notice a small one. Earlier this month, after the horrific assault on free speech in Paris, I found myself browsing Facebook and realized the ease with which we voice our constitutionally sanctioned opinions....
  • Reel Critics: A Disney 'Hero' with heart

    Disney's new animated adventure delivers exactly what kids and parents expect. "Big Hero 6" offers action, humor and wild escapades with a major sci-fi touch. A new and very huggable robotic hero emerges in Baymax, who looks like a puffy cousin of the...
  • Reel Critics: The sober side of Stewart

    Comedian Jon Stewart skewers our culture and politics on cutting edge broadcasts of "The Daily Show." We expect raucous laughter from his audience. We don't expect that he could move us emotionally by depicting a serious subject taken from real life....
  • Reel Critics: 'Mortdecai': painful, pitiful and pointless

    It's only January, but you can already see what may be the worst big-budget movie of 2015 at a theater near you. "Mortdecai" is a pitiful attempt to reprise the near-dead genre of British madcap farce. It's based on a series of comic thriller novels...
  • Reel Critics: Not much shading in 'Black or White'

    Actor and producer Kevin Costner put up millions of his own money to finance his latest film, "Black or White." He also shares starring roles with fellow Oscar winner Octavia Spencer ("The Help"). Both are excellent as the opposing grandparents of a...
  • Reel Critics: A 'Horrible' use of Oscar winners

    "Horrible Bosses 2" is not about bosses, office work or 9 to 5 jobs. It's about a Marx Brothers-style farce with no grounding in reality. Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day reprise the characters from the original film. They bring likable...
  • Reel Critics: 'Skeletons' opens a closet

    I'll say it up front — "The Skeleton Twins" is one of the best films this year, with amazing performances from stars better known for comedic roles. But Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader and Ty Burrell show us real gifts at playing darker, more troubled...
  • The Latest: Folk-rock 'Wounds'; a slick Attic

    The Latest: Folk-rock 'Wounds'; a slick Attic
    Wounds to Bind Jerry Burgan with Alan Rifkin Rowman & Littlefield; 209 pages I still remember the first time I heard We Five's 1965 hit "You Were On My Mind." It came on my bedroom radio when I was 8 or 9, and I quickly began taping it, mistaking...
