    Clippers are gone from the postseason, but it all won't be forgotten
    They were only a dozen minutes from survival, a dozen minutes from playing one more game, a dozen minutes from keeping the magic alive and the season in play. But it was, finally, a journey too far, a hill too steep, a dozen minutes too many. The...
  • Man About Town: A new stage for National Lampoon

    Like to laugh, don't care why or where. Don't care the occasion, formal or otherwise, though the formal ones always — to quote Jack Nicholson — "bring out the devil in me." Like to laugh with people and at people and for people, which is...

    Shaky rationale behind Brown tunnel plan
    SACRAMENTO — Maybe I've watched the movie "Chinatown" too many times, but a major justification for digging Gov. Jerry Brown's massive water tunnels just seems suspicious. Brown's not creating a drought by dumping water in the ocean and...

    Want to clean up baseball? Try this, Bud

  • Movies that never got made

    Movies that never got made
    Make no small plans. Said Alejandro Jodorowsky. Probably. Certainly, at some point, in the mid-1970s, while the Chilean filmmaker was trying to get his gargantuan Hollywood adaptation of Frank Herbert's science-fiction novel "Dune" off the ground,...
  • Scary Men Different From Scary Women

    With Halloween trying to sneak up on us, it's time to look without fear at the differences between what makes men scary and what makes women scary. For example, your male villain in a horror movie must have third-degree peeling burns and open sores over...
  • Gene Hackman's road trip not taken

    Gene Hackman's road trip not taken
    Let us now praise two actors, one who stars in "Nebraska," one who didn't. Now 77, Bruce Dern deserves every accolade and honor coming his way thanks to "Nebraska," director Alexander Payne's rueful comedy about a fogged-in career alcoholic, living in...

    Screenings shine bright with stars
    Jack is back! Warner Bros. had to turn away at least 50 Screen Actors Guild members at an overflowing screening of "The Bucket List" at the TV Academy in North Hollywood last night. About 600 strong filled every seat and then some for the rare – and...
