CHICAGO -- When Empire protagonist Lucious Lyon meets with his three sons in his plush New York mansion, or when Lyon's ex-wife, Cookie, holds court with the hip-hop mogul in his gleaming Manhattan office, the main focus is on the implausible yet entertaining plot and the scenery-chewing performances from Terrence Howard's Lucious and Taraji P. Henson's Cookie.

Cooking shows fill up with celebrities, not chefs

posted: 11/29/2015 3:14 a.m. Discuss

The flamboyant chefs who boost their careers with TV shows and cookbooks have tough new competition, but it isn't coming from the kitchen. A wave of sexy, friendly and instantly recognizable celebrities -- with no culinary experience -- is finding that a side dish of Hollywood, Nashville, Tenn., or supermodel goes quite well with a second career in food.

Review: Trumbo

posted: 11/27/2015 4 a.m. Discuss

Fear makes human beings do pretty horrific things, when it comes down to it. It makes us irrational, closed-minded and selfish, and brings out the worst in our species, like a terrarium filled with water bugs, each one crawling over the one below it in order to escape. It's what dictators have used for millennia to keep their subjects in line, what empires have provided in return for its subjects' unquestioned loyalty, and what terrorists use to exhort their message.

There are certain stories that exist within the sphere of public consciousness. Whether they come from Aesop or a novel, they have transcended their origins and become a part of culture's shared mythology. These fables persist because they resonate on some basic level with the anxieties inherent to the human condition and are constantly reinterpreted in order to extract some new meaning from them.

Review: Brooklyn

posted: 11/27/2015 4 a.m. Discuss

Before we begin, let me say that Brooklyn is the sort of movie that any decent person ought to enjoy. It is full of heart and longing, and if it fails to stir something inside you perhaps you should consider that it is you, and not John Crowley's exquisitely crafted movie, that is at fault.

Review: The Good Dinosaur

posted: 11/27/2015 4 a.m. Discuss

It's only fitting that The Good Dinosaur, a movie about facing one's fears, gets a little scary. Fortunately, the minds at Pixar are well practiced at handling tricky emotions. Their movies may be aimed at children, but their refusal to condescend means children will still be enamored of these films when they become eligible for retirement benefits. While director Peter Sohn and a legion of collaborators are out to tug at your heartstrings, they do it in such a clever and earnest way that the manipulation is practically invisible.
