    Scorcese's Hugo movie is a delight
    I got a chance yesterday to see Martin Scorcese's movie "Hugo," a delightful story based around the life of movie pioneer Georges Méliès. It was part of my New Year's resolution to see more literary adaptations, and I couldn't have picked a better place...
  • City Lights: Movie experience still worthwhile

    On New Year's Day, my wife and I saw Martin Scorsese's "Hugo" at the Cinemark at Bella Terra. For those who haven't seen it yet, it's about a young orphan who lives in a train station in Paris and finds escape through the silent movies that play at the...
  • Mailbag: No wonder 'Hugo' honors silent films

    I enjoyed reading your article "Movie experience still worthwhile" (City Lights, Jan. 5) and also the editorial "Big-screen blues" in the Los Angeles Times. One thing I would like to add as a reason movie attendance might be shrinking is that, like a...

    Golden Globes anticipation is high for host Ricky Gervais
    Let's face it. Audiences will tune into the Golden Globes Sunday at 5 p.m. on NBC not so much to see if "The Artist," "The Help," "Hugo" or "Midnight in Paris" wins best picture of 2011 -- but to see just how outrageous host Ricky Gervais will get. For...

    'Houdini Box' is another Brian Selznick story set loose from the page
    "I'm not someone who has a lot of my own ideas," the charming children's author Brian Selznick observed last week at Cullen's Bar & Grill on Southport Avenue. "Most of the things I've done have been brought to me." Well, it's certainly true that...
  • Oscar nominations a blast from the past

    Oscar nominations a blast from the past
    John Osborne wrote the key post-World War II British drama "Look Back in Anger," later filmed in 1959. By contrast there’s very little anger in all the look-backs among this year’s Academy Award nominations. Oscar's unofficial slogan in...
  • City Lights: The Oscar pool is on

    Everyone has at least one skill that doesn't have a practical use. Mine is the ability to name every movie ever to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. I absorbed that knowledge from years of reading critical studies of the Oscars, to the point...
  • Reel Critics: 'Extremely' good and 'Incredibly' emotional

    Few films have more award-winning talent than"Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close." Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock need no introduction. Director Stephen Daldry earned Oscar nominations for "The Hours" and "The Reader." Eric Roth wrote the screenplays for"...

    Oscar nominees take a look back with 'New Nostalgia'
    A couple of years ago, Bruce Sheridan, chair of the film program at Columbia College, noticed a curious thing happening. A few of the film majors who interned on the Chicago production of "The Dark Knight" had started making their student films and, as...

    Before he wrote the epic "Hugo"— which turned out pretty well, all in all — Brian Selznick penned a little illustrated book called "The Houdini Box," the tale of 10-year-old Victor, an aspiring magician who idealizes Harry Houdini but is,...
