I've wrapped my weekend moviegoing.  I caught "Superbad" for the second time on Friday night.  Equally funny, if not moreso.  It's certainly the funniest movie I've seen a long time.  Absolutely worth the ticket price.  I also caught the first of several Jane Austen films.  This one, "Becoming Jane" stars Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy.  The film left me feeling . . .fine.  It was sweet and pretty and all together generally blah.  But that's not to say it's a bad film.  It's not.  It's just not that interesting.  And finally, I saw "Paris je t'aime" which I thought was splendid.  It's a compilation of short films from directors such as Gus Van Sant, Alfonso Cuaron, Alexander Payne, Wes Craven, and Ethan & Joel Coen about the City of Lights.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
