Fisher defeats Brunner

Columbus, OH – It was the race that some expected to be a bitter battle between big Democratic rivals. But the contest for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate never really got heated, even in the end, and it was closer than the polls had predicted. Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler reports.

Republican primary for state auditor

Columbus, OH – Two men who have never held a statewide office before battled it out last night in the Republican primary for state auditor. It was a race that put the Tea Party and the Ohio Republican Party at odds in some ways. But in the end, the GOP's chosen candidate won. Delaware County Republican Dave Yost defeated Montgomery County Republican Seth Morgan by a margin of 65 to 35 percent. Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles has details.

    Letters to Juliet

    Redgrave to the rescue.

    "For stony limits cannot hold love out." Romeo and Juliet


    When is a romantic comedy a tragedy? When it isn't Shakespeare for sure and less so when it's an American production that actually is closer to drama wannabe. Think of Mamma Mia! Mixing with Roman Holiday and directed by Ron Howard.

    Babies

    Infantile

    What were they thinking, those producers of Babies? The documentary about four international little ones from their first days to walking time is not imaginative, comical, or engaging. I couldn't wait for this dull doc to be over.

    Just Wright

    Not right.

    I learn something new every day: For instance, I would have thought the outsized Queen Latifah could save any film by the force of her wry smile. In Just Wright, as physical therapist Leslie Wright she smiles a bit, not enough really, but she flashes no wit or sass except in a brief scene with Phylicia Rashad as the mother of NBS star Scott McKnight (Common). The film is like a Catholic basketball league next to the NBA. There's really no comparison.

    Iron Man 2

    Rusty

    "If you could make God bleed, people will cease to believe in Him." Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke)

    It's apt to say Iron Man 2 is bleeding, but we know it won't be money. Rather it is that lifeblood of originality in story and dialogue characteristic of the original Marvel comic adaptation absent here. Remaining are pyrotechnics and gymnastics worthy of straight-to-video productions.
