  • Dodgers' Vin Scully loses one golden ring in holiday loop around Costco

    Dodgers' Vin Scully loses one golden ring in holiday loop around Costco
    Vin Scully can find his way into our hearts even during the gloomiest winter afternoons, as he proved again Thursday when he unwittingly starred in his own holiday movie. The Ribs That Saved Christmas. "I feel like such a dummy," Scully said with a...
  • What if it's true?

    Suppose what some call the "Christmas story" is true -- all of it, from the angels, to the shepherds, to the virgin birth, to God taking on human flesh. By this, I don't mean to suggest it is true only for those who believe it to be true, but what if it...

    The Biblioracle: A new year with an old West
    I understand how New Year's Day is supposed to work, that it is a time of renewal, for looking forward with promise and hope. But I go the opposite way. New Year's is the time I look back on the year just passed and think, "Welp, that's 365 days...

    'Citizenfour' a compelling look at Edward Snowden's actions
    Be afraid. Be very afraid. This in essence is the message of "Citizenfour," Laura Poitras' highly anticipated documentary on Edward Snowden's decision to expose the National Security Agency's ravenous appetite for clandestinely collecting the personal...

    Forget Halloween. TV shows have thrills and chills all year-round
    For years now, television has greeted the end of October by rolling out special Halloween-themed episodes and slasher fare, but never before has it seemed so absurd. Not because Halloween isn't socially significant — All Hallow's Eve became an...
  • 'Utopia' means sleeping on a barn floor and tiresome arguments

    'Utopia' means sleeping on a barn floor and tiresome arguments
    In "Utopia," which is not an adaptation of Thomas More's 1516 work of philosophical speculative fiction but a reality show from the creator of "Big Brother," 15 people volunteer to live together for a year without indoor plumbing. As is the custom,...
  • When ego drives art

    When ego drives art
    Not many moviegoers know the play, but the 1948 Moss Hart comedy "Light Up the Sky" concerns the painful birth of a Broadway-bound post-apocalyptic allegory called "The Time Is Now." It may well be a work of genius. It may also be a pretentious stiff...
  • A low voter turnout isn't good for California

    Remember Willie Stark, the charming, corrupt character in "All the King's Men"? He had it right. "If ya don't vote, ya don't matter!" he shouted while barnstorming for governor. That was in the 2006 movie version of Robert Penn Warren's Pulitzer...
  • Movies to see between now and New Year's

    Movies to see between now and New Year's
    Now we're cooking. Finally, the fruits of the international film festival circuit are being delivered all over the place, just in time for awards season, formerly known as "winter." Now is the time we learn if the rapturous reception for Bennett Miller'...
  • 'Interstellar' explores outer and inner spaces

    Memorable science fiction thinks the unthinkable so we don't have to. If earlier generations fretted about nuclear radiation or alien invasion, what powers Christopher Nolan's altogether remarkable "Interstellar" is an up-to-date concern about the...
