Overlooking Laurel & Hardy biopic “Stan & Ollie” was a big mistake. Huge.

While watching the new Laurel & Hardy biopic “Stan & Ollie,” I kept thinking about the cliché of “Hollywood biopic formula,” which was famously lampooned in “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story” (2007). Coincidentally, both films star John C. Reilly, and the latter has been brought up a few times recently thanks to the...

“On the Basis of Sex” doesn’t do justice to Ruth Bader Ginburg’s legacy

It’s wild when a person as interesting as Ruth Bader Ginsburg inspires not only a barely decent documentary (RBG), but a barely decent biopic (“On the Basis of Sex”) as well.

Ginsburg rivals Gloria Steinem and Angela Davis as one of the pioneers of Second Wave feminism during the 1950s through the 1970s, so it’s no...

From Malibu Ken to FIDLAR and Deerhunter, these are the albums we’re looking forward to in January

As we rub the bleary fog from the earliest hours of 2019, now is a great time to eagerly – annoyingly – and with a far (FAR) off twinkle, begin to look ahead to the releases that are forthcoming. A handful of artists and bands had hoped to release new somethings in 2018, but whatever happened, happened, and now we can assume...

The Second City coming for big laughs at Community Concert Hall

When you’re touring with the most prolific comedy group in the country, The Second City, you don’t know what to expect when you’re on the road.

One of cast member Alison Banowsky’s favorite memories was from when they were doing a show in Ohio at an old theater. The cast was told that bats lived in the facility. During...

Hello again, aliens: “Roswell” reboot reminding all that extraterrestrials are still out there

Hey, 1999 called and it wants choker necklaces back. It also wanted to let you know that The CW’s “Roswell, New Mexico” is coming back. It’s another reboot, baby!

“Everyone small town has a story,” the Comic-Con trailer starts off. “Roswell was a sleepy, cowboy settlement in post-war America until one day something...

Golden Globes recap and future award predictions: It’s a winner free for all

As someone who has been covering movie award shows for almost a decade, it’s really easy to just throw together articles on ceremony recaps and winners of the night – especially if you’re just not feeling the season movie-wise. This season is actually a bit of a mix for me. You have interesting films like “A Star is Born,”...

Holidays get old with current movie releases

As is often the case with December movies, the last weekend of the year is usually lacking in new releases. Usually movies given limited runs in theaters earlier in the month (particularly Oscar contenders) finally get wider, more mainstream releases. Rather than waste anyone’s time on giving critiques of “Holmes &...

Supersuckers are headed to Durango – and then Mars

If you had to reduce the Supersuckers to an acronym, it would be FU, according to Eddie Spaghetti, the band’s founder. Simple and to the point.

Much more to the point, Spaghetti and the rest of the rock/punk/country band – with ‘Metal’ Marty Chandler on guitar and vocals and ‘Captain’ Chris Von Streicher on drums – will...

This Ignacio artist’s custom habitats are amphibian-filled jungles, and they’re magical

Peering inside one of Oscar Gillespie’s creation is like losing yourself in another world, except the world is a miniature jungle, with frogs and lizards climbing through the leaves, and branches expertly situated inside a Curio cabinet. Or, perhaps it’s a collection of fish swimming about an old candy dispenser turned...
