    San Fernando Valley roundup: Nonprofit maintains public green space, NoHo documentary film festival
    Good morning, readers. Today is Saturday, August 11. If you've jogged next to the Los Angeles river between Sherman Oaks and Studio City, you may have noticed a green walkway. The interesting part is that a nonprofit organization, Village Gardeners,...

    DVD review: An action-packed 'Raid'

  • DVD review: 'The 39 Steps' worth taking

    DVD review: 'The 39 Steps' worth taking
    Alfred Hitchcock's very free 1935 adaptation of John Buchan's novel was almost certainly the calling card that got him invited to make films in America. As a work of pure entertainment, it out-Hollywoods Hollywood. The plot is that of a thriller. But...

    DVD review: '21 Jump Street' is 'good dumb'
    As I remarked in my review of the theatrical release of “21 Jump Street”, this feature revival/spoof of the ‘80s TV show is better than it has any right to be. It may be dumb, but it's good dumb, mixing very broad shtick with clever...

    Comic-Con: Warner Bros. brings Hollywood luxury to VIP tent
    At this year's Comic-Con International, Warner Bros.  set up a VIP-only tent so packed with luxury that some of those allowed in said it reminded them more of the Cannes Film Festival than the annual gathering of geek fans. There was little indication...
  • Film review: 'Dark Knight Rises' is a promise fulfilled

    Film review: 'Dark Knight Rises' is a promise fulfilled
    And so the Christopher Nolan rendition of Batman — started in “Batman Begins” (2005) and continued in “The Dark Knight” (2008) — comes to an end, in “The Dark Knight Rises.” It stands proudly alongside...

    DVD review: 'Samurai Trilogy' is a cut above predecessor

    DVD review: 'Quadrophenia' gets remixed
