X-Men: Days of Future Past
Diverting but rarely riveting, this latest offering from the Marvel Universe kicks the can down the road some more.
Film Review  May 23, 2014, by Kimberley Jones
"...Director Bryan Singer, reclaiming the film franchise he launched in 2000, means to establish from the first reel that Days of Future Past is not messing around. Via voiceover, Professor X (Stewart) explains the catastrophic present, in which killing machines called Sentinels have wiped out most of the world’s mutant population and many of their human defenders, too..."

The Core
How much you enjoy The Core is going to be based on how much you enjoy reading either Popular Science or Weird Tales. Amiel’s film fuses the two magazines’ demographics...
Film Review  March 28, 2003, by Marc Savlov
"...government at the ready, Brazleton, who’s luckily spent the last two decades decamped in the California desert designing a burrowing machine just in case somebody might need to go to the center of the Earth in a hurry, finesses his craft into being, and the group heads way, way south to jump-start the planet via nuclear weapons. In one of the film’s more willfully goofball moments (and there are many), the federal government brings in a teenage hacker (Qualls of The New Guy) to "hack the planet" and make sure that nobody in the world knows the severity of what’s happening..."

Experience the C.H.A.R.M.?
Marketing the "live music capital of the world"
Music Story  September 6, 1996, by Andy Langer
"...On the city's letterhead and bumper stickers, Austin is the "Live Music Capital of the World." But what if we were merely charming instead? When word leaked out this past March that city planners were considering changing Austin's official slogan to "Experience the C.H.A.R.M. [Culture, Heritage, Arts, Recreation, and Music] of Austin," local clubowners, musicians, and industry leaders sat up and took notice..."

Figure in the Frame
The exhibit Arnold Newman: Masterclass gives us all a lesson in the power of the photographic portrait
Arts Story  March 15, 2013, by Katherine Catmull
"...Flukinger notes that Newman also "did his homework" on subjects. Thus, on the one hand, the avant-garde 12-tone composer Pierre Boulez is framed by sharp lines and angles; while on the other, trees are reflected in the sliding glass door of Ansel Adams' home, and in Adams' eyeglasses, so that he merges with the natural world..."

Series 7: The Contenders
Forgive me for stating the obvious: American culture is in the grip of reality TV. Furthermore, every armchair sociologist in the land has an opinion, entertainment forecast, or theory as...
Film Review  May 11, 2001, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...In fact, it is a rather cynical expression of our culture's willingness to submit to the every beck and call of this kind of programming. In its opening seconds, Series 7 drops us into the episodic world of The Contenders, the movie's fictive reality TV program, which is now in its seventh season -- or Series 7..."

Price of Glory
Less talk, more fisticuffs, por favor. The sweet science falls prey to yet another boxing debacle, this one on the screen as opposed to in the ring. For Avila's debut...
Film Review  March 31, 2000, by Marc Savlov
"...Older Sonny (Seda) has the talent, as does middle kid Jimmy (Collins), but it's the smallish Johnny (Hernandez) who sticks by his father's fightin' side through thick and thin. As the years fly by, Arturo attempts to groom his boys for the world of professional prize fighting and encounters all manner of problems, from Sonny's decision to get married and perhaps settle down to Jimmy's rebellious attitude and drug use..."

"...This is the world that the social Web is building in 2013: Rather than conferring legitimacy onto sites like Tumblr and Reddit, powerful entities – from AMA participant Bill Gates to the Tumblr-using Obama campaign – are turning to those outlets, on their own terms, in order to be legitimized. Who's the Boss?..."

The Brothers Grimsby
Sacha Baron Cohen's spy comedy goes awry

Film Review  March 18, 2016, by Marc Savlov
"...It’s only been four years since Sacha Baron Cohen’s last starring role in The Dictator, but it feels like ages. Baron Cohen’s subversive brand of immersive, in-your-face guerrilla comedy has found its tragicomic equal in – who’d’a thunk it? – the real world..."

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge out of Water
The lovable gang from the animated TV show leaves Bikini Bottom to come ashore.
Film Review  February 13, 2015, by William Goss
"...In a computer-generated sea of carefully obscured traumas and tidy life lessons, one sentient sponge dares not to take animated matters so seriously. Arriving a full decade after its big-screen predecessor, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water returns to the hand-drawn depths of Bikini Bottom and maintains the anarchic charms of both that film and the Nickelodeon series that introduced the world to the wide-eyed, high-pitched likes of SpongeBob SquarePants...."

The Sense of an Ending
A man's past comes back to haunt him in the form of a letter
Film Review  March 24, 2017, by Kimberley Jones
"...When a certified letter is delivered to septuagenarian Tony (Broadbent), something – Tony’s absentmindedness, life’s constant stream of distractions – keeps preventing Tony from opening it. We see the letter get stuffed into a jacket pocket and shoved to the bottom of a pile, building suspense while letting the viewer get to know Tony’s small world – a pregnant daughter (Dockery), an affectionately exasperated ex-wife (Walter) – before his equilibrium is rattled once he finally opens the letter...."

The Entertainment Economy
As the Austin film, music, and gaming scenes become a "cluster," civic leaders are looking for industrial-strength creativity
News Story  March 14, 2003, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...Where the Jobs Are The "creative class" and its work may constitute more than half the local economy, but the three big sectors of the local entertainment world are only a fraction of that, and not a very well-defined one. The music industry is responsible, according to economist Jon Hockenyos of economic consulting group Texas Perspectives, for 11,200 jobs in Austin and about $616 million in direct, indirect, and induced economic activity..."

"While we'll have to tolerate up to a 25-year flood event, it's not the end of the world and the sky is not falling." By "natural," Lorenz means not a nature trail per se, but a "soft edge" between people and creek, as opposed to the "choked-off concrete ditch" suggested by the Trias renderings...."
