  • Review: 'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb'

    Review: 'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb'
    "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," otherwise known as "Night at the Museum 3," rates as more determinedly heartfelt than the first and not as witty as the second (and best). Also, no Amy Adams as Amelia Earhart in jodhpurs this time around....
  • Review: 'Unbroken'

    Review: 'Unbroken'
    Laura Hillenbrand's 2010 nonfiction account "Unbroken" introduced millions to Louis Zamperini, the Italian-American who competed in the 1936 Berlin Olympics and, in World War II, became an Army Air Corps bombardier flying missions over the South Pacific....
  • Review: 'Into the Woods'

    Review: 'Into the Woods'
    In the generation since "Into the Woods" opened on Broadway, the entertainment world has recycled a forest's worth of enchantress-based, princess-dependent and fairy tale-steeped mythology for mass consumption, from Disney's "Frozen" and "Maleficent" to...
  • Goodbyes abound in 'Night at the Museum' as trilogy comes to an end

    Goodbyes abound in 'Night at the Museum' as trilogy comes to an end
    "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," otherwise known as "Night at the Museum 3," rates as more determinedly heartfelt than the first and not as witty as the second (and best). Also, no Amy Adams as Amelia Earhart in jodhpurs this time around....
  • An 'Annie' without the expected sunshine, spirit or energy

    Hard to believe the sun will come out tomorrow for the new "Annie." Starring Jamie Foxx as the mogul and Quvenzhané Wallis as the moppet, there are so many reasons to rain on this parade. Director Will Gluck's glam, grim re-imagining of the...
  • 'All Hail King Julien' lets the 'Madagascar' rave begin

    All hail "All Hail King Julien," to take the easy (though not critically disingenuous) way in to discussing the latest spinoff from DreamWorks Animation's "Madagascar" franchise. Following the summer bow of "Turbo F.A.S.T.," it's also the second fruit...
  • Three art shows in San Diego recall abstraction's prominence

    Abstract paintings and sculptures were once the gold standard of Modern art. They spoke of adventurous aesthetic expeditions into hitherto unexplored visual realms. Since the 1950s the figurative banner was held high by marvelous painters such as...
  • Flat. Stagnant. Well, 'Goodbye to All That'

    A charming supporting cast fails to invigorate "Goodbye to All That," a relentlessly flat seriocomic take on contemporary relationships marking the directorial debut of "Junebug" scribe Angus MacLachlan. Although completely blindsided by his wife's...
  • 'Mr. Turner' is a vivid grumble

    'Mr. Turner' is a vivid grumble
    3 stars (out of four) Hordes of people won’t flock to “Mr. Turner,” which, sorry to say, is not the long-awaited story of what happened to Shawn Hunter’s “Boy Meets World” teacher and mentor. The ultra-slow, 150-minute...
  • 'Unbroken' never plants its feet

    'Unbroken' never plants its feet
    2 stars (out of four) I’m never in favor of titles with subtitles (like “Exodus: Gods and Kings”), but I’m especially glad that “Unbroken” isn’t called “Unbroken: The Louis Zamperini Story.” Because,...
  • REVIEW: 'Cinderella' at the Cadillac Palace Theatre

     REVIEW: 'Cinderella' at the Cadillac Palace Theatre
    Two Cinderellas dreamed of a handsome prince at the Cadillac Palace Theatre on Wednesday. The one listed in the program, Paige Faure, suffering from what sure sounded like a severe cold or flu, danced off into the wings in the middle of the first act,...
