  • Tilson Thomas leads London Symphony in victory lap at Disney Hall

    Tilson Thomas leads London Symphony in victory lap at Disney Hall
    Michael Tilson Thomas and the London Symphony Orchestra go back a long way. One of their earliest collaborations was a terrific 1974 album with guitarist John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra called "Apocalypse," now seen as a landmark of jazz-...
  • 'Pygmalion' falls short in uneven Pasadena Playhouse revival

    'Pygmalion' falls short in uneven Pasadena Playhouse revival
    It's always a delight to encounter the disputatious wit of George Bernard Shaw, a playwright who thought comedy was at its fizzy best when ideas were allowed to collide in the service of public enlightenment. His characters embody divergent ideological...
  • Movie review: 'Get Hard' squanders Ferrell, Hart

    "Get Hard," the prepping-for-prison would-be comedy from Will Ferrell and comedian-of-the-moment Kevin Hart, is about as funny as life imprisonment without the possibility of parole or laughter. Hart stars in a role that sounds similar to the one from...
  • 'Big Time in Hollywood, FL' a weak shot at absurd comedy

    'Big Time in Hollywood, FL' a weak shot at absurd comedy
    Created by Alex Anfanger and Dan Schimpf, whose online series "Next Time on Lonny" was "discovered" by Ben Stiller, Comedy Central's new series, "Big Time in Hollywood, FL," chronicles the lives of two online filmmakers longing to be discovered by someone...
  • Auto Review: The peak of Evolution

    There are times when those of us living in the United States have to realize the sad reality that we're not the only automotive market in the world. I know, we may be the most influential, and you would think the most desirable models always make it to...
  • Movie review: 'It Follows' a nightmarish tale (and that's a good thing)

    Director David Robert Mitchell's "It Follows" is similar to that nightmare you had that was so terrifying that it woke you from a sound sleep. The images that were so vivid before you awoke are now like the jumbled pieces of a puzzle. But despite the...
  • Chef Jose Garces and company fire up the grill at Rural Society

    Chef Jose Garces and company fire up the grill at Rural Society
    Chef Jose Garces (Mercat a la Planxa) showcases Argentine cuisine at Rural Society in Chicago's Streeterville neighborhood. Review: Rural Society 455 N. Park Drive 312-840-6605 Rating: !!! 1/2 (out of 4) Heating up In Chicago, Argentine food may bring...
  • Movie review: 'Home' aptly named � it's a good reminder to stay there

    The combination of a feeble script, unnecessary music montages, unlikable characters and so-so animation leave "Home" a close encounter of the dull kind. E.T. would use his call to phone the theater to get his money back. Even those who put the...
  • 'Thieves' thick with family dysfunction

     'Thieves' thick with family dysfunction
    In the annals of dysfunctional-family drama, Charlotte Miller's "Thieves" isn't likely to find a lasting place, though the producers might want to consider posting the following warning in the lobby: "The drama you're about to see contains quite a lot...
  • In 'Bloodline,' dark business is afoot in the sunny Florida Keys

    In 'Bloodline,' dark business is afoot in the sunny Florida Keys
    "Bloodline," whose first and probably not last season appears all at once Friday on Netflix, comes from Glenn and Todd Kessler and Daniel Zelman, creators of the celebrated FX/DirecTV Glenn Close legal thriller "Damages." The setting this time is the...
  • Movie review: Another E.T. is out of place on Earth in Dreamworks' �Home�

    "Home" is an energetic, obvious animated comedy packed with the sort of low humor and silly laughs that drive very small children wild. It's a lesser Dreamworks work, in other words, no more ambitious than those later "Madagascar" movies. There's not...
