  • If the medium of moving pictures is here not just to entertain us, but also perhaps to enlighten and engage us with deeper feelings and sincere emotion – authenticity means something.

  •  What if they made blockbuster summer action movies that made you think and even elicited genuine emotion? It doesn't happen often, but when it does it's usually something special. Think Christopher Nolan's "Inception."

  • ADAMS COUNTY — A young bald eagle whose parents built a nest a few yards away from E-470’s 120th Avenue interchange in Adams County is nearly ready to make its first flight. It’s hoped the youngster won’t be tempted to play in tollway traffic.

    Taking steps to prevent that from happening, the Raptor Education Foundation is recruiting volunteers to serve as eagle monitors to help steer the fledging out of harm’s way.

  • The well-past-21 lead characters of “22 Jump Street” are supposed to feel old and out of place as they matriculate from investigating high school drug deals and head to the college ranks.

    I’m not so sure I was supposed to feel old while watching it, though.

  • Perhaps the worst part about a game you truly love playing, win or lose, is when it’s over.

    Pride in winning or the reality check of licking your wounds certainly adds some character, but having to move on to something else after investing so much time and effort stings.

    Seth MacFarlane is a rather divisive character. Despite the popularity of “Family Guy,” he has plenty of critics who express little more than abject hatred for his brand of lowbrow humor and stretching a joke to the brink of driving viewers insane.

    Subaru of America would make a terrible ex-boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse. The minute you’re ready to leave, it keeps calling you back. And when you finally part ways, they just keep looking better and better.

    Not knowing the way home isn’t a bad thing.

    In 1998, Roland Emmerich gave us a Godzilla film not worthy of the kaiju’s name. Now, admittedly, I like the film; it’s like “Armageddon” in that it’s by no means a good film, but it possesses enough mindless entertainment to keep me from changing the channel when I stumble upon it on F/X while home sick from work.

  • Saturday, May 17, is the date for the annual Ft. Lupton Optimist Club garage sale at R&M Services, 622 First Ave. in Ft. Lupton. The selling hours will be from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    In case of rain, the sale will be held on Sunday, May 18. Organizers are looking for household items in good working condition. Children’s clothing and toys are highly saleable. All donations are tax deductible and receipts are offered. Proceeds go toward the Fort Lupton Optimist Club senior scholarships. 

  • Cameron Diaz’s Carly Whitten has found a great boyfriend in Mark King (Nikolaj Coster-Waldrau), the kind that shows up outside her office with flowers and champagne — the kind that plunks down big money at the jewelry store for an eight-week anniversary.

    The thing is, he’s a lousy husband to Kate (Leslie Mann) as he carries on with another woman.

     

     

  • Confidence can get you pretty far.

    The ability to do parkour stunts from one rooftop to another also will get you pretty far, but you probably need confidence to attempt that in the first place.

     

    In the case of “Brick Mansions,” the film moves through an otherwise weak story with every confidence in itself and is all the more enjoyable because of it.

  • Anyone who comes away from viewing director Errol Morris’ “The Unknown Known” without a keen appreciation for how good a liar former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is, they surely suffer from what the doc’s central figure refers to as a “failure of imagination.”
