Ed Wood
This biographical film is charming, melancholy, strange, and quirkily humorous. There's also a certain irony in giving the silver-screen treatment to the most infamous of bargain-basement directors and his motley crew of hangers-on.
Film Review  October 7, 1994, by Marc Savlov
"...Directed by: Tim Burton. Starring: Johnny Depp, Martin Landau, Sarah Jessica Parker, Patricia Arquette, Jeffrey Jones, Bill Murray, Lisa Marie, George “The Animal” Steele and Juliet Landau..."

Point Austin: The Heroic Legacy of Martin Luther King
In a dark time, looking to King's example for inspiration
News Column  January 18, 2018, by Michael King
"...The latest, still-simmering outrage from the Trump White House was particularly shameful, in that it happened within a few days of our annual national commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr. The spectacle of a U.S..."

Film Review  August 1, 1997, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Mind you, I don't think they'll ever really “mature”; maturity would be antithetical to their act. Dumb fun is the name of their game: dumb fun and deft teamwork, the kind that recalls the likes of such teams as Abbott & Costello and Martin & Lewis..."

The Transporter Refueled
The franchise soldiers on – sans Jason Statham
Film Review  September 11, 2015, by Steve Davis
"...The gas gauge rests on empty in The Transporter Refueled, a pitiful attempt to reboot a relatively successful Aughts franchise without the high-octane action star Jason Statham, who kicked and punched his way through the first three installments. This time around, newbie Ed Skrein sits behind the wheel as mercenary driver-for-hire Frank Martin, a man of few words who will transport any goods (material and human alike) for a significant fee, no questions asked..."

When Clifford is good, he's very, very good, but when he is bad, he's… rather a mediocre little fellow. Actually, it isn't Clifford himself who's weak but the film that...

Austin’s Sisters in Crime Prefer Their Ink Mixed With a Little Blood
Murders, they write
Arts Story  July 5, 2018, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"..."In March," says Foster, "we had Ed Martin, who is a mild-mannered, charming CPA for the IRS – who ultimately tracked down the murderers of Madalyn Murray O'Hair and her family, and got the killers to share the information and even draw him a map to the burial site."..."

Two lives intertwine across time in the latest from Todd Haynes
Film Review  November 3, 2017, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Brian Selznick (the Caldecott Medal-winning author of The Invention of Hugo Cabret – the basis for Martin Scorsese’s Hugo) has adapted his own children’s novel for the Wonderstruck screenplay, and it’s probably the first Haynes film that will play well for younger audiences as well as their elders. Two discrete stories, set 50 years apart, are intercut until the film’s climax reveals (for anyone who hasn’t already figured it out) how the tales intersect and enrich each other..."

Naked City
A recap of how the Democrats and Republicans fared in this year's state legislative elections.
News Story  November 24, 2000, by Michael King
"..."This looks like a status quo election," said party consultant Ed Martin, "but it's been a long time since we held our own, and that in itself is a remarkable thing. Just as in '98, Bush had no coattails -- he got a big number himself, but Democrats did just fine in downballot races..."

The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause
A stilted, manipulative, and altogether unfun film starring Tim Allen and Martin Short.

Film Review  November 10, 2006, by Marc Savlov
"...Directed by: Michael Lembeck. Starring: Tim Allen, Martin Short, Ann-Margret, Alan Arkin, Elizabeth Mitchell, Eric Lloyd, Wendy Crewson, Judge Reinhold, Liliana Mumy and Spencer Breslin..."

A Simple Wish
The concept's good. So's the cast. But this family film about an incompetent fairy godmother named Murray (Short), is shy several handfuls of fairy dust. Instead of magic and make-believe,...

Opie on Top
AFF to honor Ron Howard's extraordinary contribution to filmmaking
DAILY Screens  July 14, 2009, by Kimberley Jones
"...Nope, we’re thinking of the astonishingly varied and consistently good work Howard’s done behind the camera: children’s fantasy (Willow) and romantic comedy (Splash), summer blockbuster (the Da Vinci movies) and fall Oscar bait (Frost/Nixon). But the sentimental fave has to be Parenthood: Steve Martin and Mary Steenburgen, so funny and believable as exhausted parents; Jason Robards as the gravel-voiced grandpa from hell; high-school-aged Keanu Reeves sexing up Martha Plimpton and Joaquin Phoenix locked in his room with a bag of porn...."

Fran Lebowitz in Town Tonight
Social commentator to speak with Frank Rich at Bass Concert Hall
DAILY Books  November 14, 2012, by Kimberley Jones
"...In Public Speaking, Martin Scorsese's 2010 portrait of the social commentator Fran Lebowitz, Nino Rota's 8 1/2 score is sprinkled throughout. You can't help but wonder if it's an affectionate goosing: The movie, after all, is about a crippling creative block, and Lebowitz famously shut down somewhere in the early Eighties...."

Big and Getting Bigger
Austin comic Eddie Gossling has always gotten a lot of attention for his size, but these days he's getting more attention for his comedy, and J.C. Shakespeare explains why.
Arts Story  December 10, 1999, by J. C. Shakespeare
"...You can tell a comic that hits the stage every night as opposed to one that doesn't make the effort to get up. I liken it to what Martin Sheen said in the beginning of Apocalypse Now..."
