    Oscars reaction: Well done, Hollywood
    That "whoosh" you heard Sunday night during the Academy Awards telecast was me breathing a sigh of relief. Good judgment prevailed and "12 Years a Slave" deservedly won the Best Picture Oscar over a lousy script hidden behind amazing visuals ("Gravity")...
  • Letters: The silver screen as a teaching tool

    Re "History lessons, with popcorn," Opinion, Feb. 12 Zach P. Messitte is spot-on regarding the influence that films with historical backgrounds have on today's college students. Since 1991 I've been teaching at USC's School of Cinematic Arts. I've...

    Oscars 2013: Ang Lee is worthy, but better than Steven Spielberg?

    The evolving images of 9/11
    The first screening of "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" came just weeks after the attacks of Sept. 11. The movie had been in the works for years, the first in a trilogy based on novels that had been written decades earlier, of course,...

    'Seven Days in Utopia' review: Apparently sports aren't just about winning and losing
    * (out of four) After a major meltdown on the course, golfer Luke Chisolm (Lucas Black) swerves around a cow, hits a fence and winds up in Utopia, Texas, population 375. Gosh darn it, who woulda thunk that in this tiny town he’d cozy up to an...
  • Shoot 'em up, blow 'em up

    Shoot 'em up, blow 'em up
    What history dictates, Hollywood redirects. Following 9/11 and the invasion of Iraq (President George W. Bush's own landmark case of redirection), skeptical and shaken moviegoers were offered a spate of films responding to our new wars on the...
  • 'Act of Valor' review: War is an action movie?

    'Act of Valor' review: War is an action movie?
    * (out of four) “Act of Valor” began as a small recruiting film. Five years and a script from one of the writers of “300” later, that's still all it is. I definitely don’t understand how the Navy thought the best way to...
