I've always liked Robert Downey Jr., even when personal exploits such as drug use and run-ins with the law threatened to kill not only his career, but the actor himself. Downey has since turned his life around and has slowly and quietly been rebuilding his acting resume. Consider the resurrection c... [More]

Zombie movies have enjoyed a renaissance, or reanimation if you will, in recent years thanks in large part to the British import "28 Days Later." The movie's killers are not technically zombies per se, but instead normal people turned into mindless, bloodthirsty killing machines by the quick-spread... [More]

I am a terrible speller. As a kid and as an adult, the idea of being in a spelling bee has always struck me as a specific form of torture. To be 10-years-old and a stage in front of a room full of people, with all your weaknesses only a thin facade away from exposure, would be a situation full of p... [More]

Norah Jones is an extremely gifted musician. I feel I should just get that out of the way before delving much further into her performance at the Fox Theatre last week. I should also disclose that while her particular brand of jazz/folk/country is not my particular cup of tea, I did appreciate that ... [More]

There are many advantages to small-town living: Low crime, a strong sense of community and the ability to weather a nuclear holocaust. It is the latter, if not least likely, reason that is the foundation of the premise of the new CBS drama "Jericho." "Jericho" debuted last fall and as the first sea... [More]

If the current trend continues, I suppose there will come a day when every movie ever made has been adapted into a Broadway musical. One of the more recent and successful incarnations of movie-to-musical is "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," now playing at the Fox Theatre through April 8. Taken from the 19... [More]

I was not that big of a fan of the movie version of "Edward Scissorhands." This Tim Burton-directed fairy tale played out like remedial John Waters where an innocent young man with scissors for hands has trouble fitting in with white-bread suburbia. This heavy-handed one-note film had its moments bu... [More]

David Fincher has the market cornered on being stylishly creepy. With movies like "Se7en" and "Panic Room" to his credit, the director can turn out a taut genre film and then elevate it by layering the movie with his distinctive directorial style. So with this pedigree it would seem a perfect fit fo... [More]
