Little Rock's Riverdale to show 5 'art house' flicks

posted: 09/22/2017 4:30 a.m. Discuss

Because their box office receipts often aren't reported on E! and some of their stars aren't famous enough to get on TMZ, art theaters frequently don't get the recognition they deserve. In one egregious recent example, on March 22, IndieWire erroneously reported that Little Rock didn't have an art house cinema.

Taking into account the scourge that comes with the standard bio-pic, all its inherent limitations, it is at least twice as difficult to make the dreaded "topical" bio-pic -- that is, making a film about a figure of particular, direct current relevancy.

Review: Kingsmen: The Golden Circle

So, for a big studio brave enough to step outside of remakes and regurgitated content in an attempt to jump-start a new franchise, the original Kingsman (2014), and this sequel offer up a pretty surefire step-by-step method.

LOS ANGELES -- It does it again.

Best and the worst of Toronto film festival

posted: 09/22/2017 1:45 a.m. Discuss

One of the more peculiar aspects of spending a week ensconced in a massive film festival, spending your days frantically rushing from one theater to another, standing in line interminably, and watching movie after movie, is the hermetically sealed aspect of being in such an all-encompassing environment day after day, night after night, until the goings-on of the outside world can sound as distant as a whisper across a mountain canyon. There are exceptions, of course -- our current president's inauguration day happened to take place on the first full day of Sundance -- but for the most part, tucked away into a film festival such as the Toronto International Film Festival, you nestle down in your seat and put as much of your concentration in front of you, on the screen, as you can muster.

Helpful Hints

DEAR HELOISE: I am a United States veteran. Having lost one leg and a hand while serving my country, I have a service dog, Chip, who helps me and who I couldn't get along without. People in my little hometown understand that my dog has to go where I go, but on planes, in airports, in businesses and doctor's offices, I get some ugly stares or comments because of my dog. People need to understand that service dogs are there to help someone and are greatly appreciated by veterans. They're not dangerous, and legally we have the right to take them with us wherever we go. My dog is well-behaved, always clean, always on a leash and well-fed. He's my buddy and my friend, and where I go, Chip goes, too.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: Are people basically good or basically bad? Some friends and I have been having a discussion about this, and we're having a hard time coming to any firm conclusion. What does the Bible say about this, if anything?
