You can't be on both teams at once...

I can hear reasonably well, and I love all things British, but Robert Altman's "Gosford Park" has tested the limits of my theatrical patience once again: his brilliant ability to film as if we were overhearing conversation at a party (remember "McCabe and Mrs. Miller" or "Nashville") leaves me wanting to be a listener who actually has heard all the conversation.

The plot holes are as many as dot our own moon...

Earth in 2079 is less secure than in 2002. Our hero, Gary Sinise, is a weapons inventor mistaken for a bomb-carrying alien. Let the chase begin. Most of this lost-opportunity sci/fi is based on a story by Philip K. Dick, better known for his plots of "Total Recall" and the seminal "Blade Runner."

Newfoundland just won’t give us its news gracefully...

That this affair may have precipitated the fall of Marie Antoinette and various other guillotine candidates is the most intriguing part of this "Dangerous Liaisons" wannabe.

Check out what we've been groovin' on all year...

Floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee...

"A Beautiful Mind" is the best exposition of the mind's ability to gyrate to a different tune since "Memento."

When Margot says of her first husband, "I met him in the ocean, he came out to me in a canoe," you know this is one weird family.

Amid Growing Threats, Donkey Rescuers Protect The Misunderstood Beasts Of Burden

Donkeys have been loyal beasts of burden for 5,000 years, yet they still don't get a lot of respect. In the wild, burro herds are a nuisance. In captivity, they can be mistreated. But in recent years, donkey sanctuaries have sprung up across the country. The largest among them is Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue , outside of San Angelo, Texas, where the air periodically erupts with the unpeaceable sounds of donkey braying.
