  • 'Birth of a Nation' anniversary has a heck of a bookend

    'Birth of a Nation' anniversary has a heck of a bookend
    In the history of American cinema, D.W. Griffith's 1915 landmark "The Birth of a Nation" is the gift that keeps on generating misgivings. Based on Thomas Dixon Jr.'s 1905 novel "The Clansman," and the subsequent stage version, Griffith's 12-reel Civil...
  • Captain Comics: 'Kingsman' graphic novel a world away from film

    "Kingsman: The Secret Service" will rise or fall on its own merits when it premieres Feb. 13. But its source material, the graphic novel "The Secret Service: Kingsman" ($12.99), is good enough and different enough that it's well worth your time either...
  • E-reader: Laura Lippman's writing ignites 'Five Fires'

    Five Fires by Laura Lippman, 40-minute read, $2.99, Kindle Someone has been setting fires in the town of Belleville, and high school student Beth makes it her job to trace the arson cases through the mundane days of a small-town summer. Laura Lippman'...
  • Barrington's Read of the Week: 'The Nightingale'

    In a world of 24/7 global news, we can become desensitized to the horrors of war and the courage displayed by those who wage against those horrors. We're bombarded by images and stories so violent and unspeakable that, sadly, today's news can feel like...
  • Movie review: 'Jupiter Ascending' might be worst in the galaxy

    Stay away, stay away. "Jupiter Ascending" is a botched exercise in computer-rendered lizard men, ridiculous levitation boots and dramatic inertia. While it's long on explosions, it lacks the best special effect of all, a solid story. It was written and...
  • Thursday's Tumble: Harper Lee returns! ... Monkey Bar carries on ... Katy Perry and her sharks

    "IF YOU learn just a single trick, Scout, you get along a lot better with all kinds of folks; you never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view ... until you climb inside his skin and walk around in it." That's Atticus...
  • Mixed feelings on Harper Lee's 'Go Set a Watchman'

    I first encountered Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" in ninth grade. Like so many others, I was struck not just by the book's vivid narrative of racial justice, but also by its nuance: the inner life of its narrator and its deft portrayal of small-...
  • Theater review: 'Potted Potter' at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

     Theater review: 'Potted Potter' at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
    The young (and young at heart) fans of boy wizard Harry Potter will immediately see that things are awry with the set of "Potted Potter." There's a coconut palm growing in the "Forbidden Forest." There's a large wardrobe at center stage. "How else...
  • At last: Harper Lee novel to be published in July, features character Scout as adult woman

    "To Kill a Mockingbird" will not be Harper Lee's only published book after all. Publisher Harper announced Tuesday that "Go Set a Watchman," a novel the Pulitzer Prize-winning author completed in the 1950s and put aside, will be released July 14....
  • 3-D printers to make human body parts? It's happening

    SAN JOSE, Calif. It sounds like something from a science fiction plot: So-called three-dimensional printers are being used to fashion prosthetic arms and hands, jaw bones, spinal-cord implants and one day perhaps even living human body parts. While the...
