'New Moon' a howling fine sequel comes to DVD (03/24/10)
After loathing "Twilight", I was a little shocked to find that I thought "New Moon" looked intriguing and more shocked that I actually wanted to see it. And I'll be the first one to say it -- I actually liked the movie. Sure, it was still ridiculously campy, but so were the horror movies of the '80s we all loved, weren't they? I mean really, how many times can you bring a killer back from the grave and make it somewhat believable? Not too many...
She & Him live up to the hype on 'Volume 2' (03/24/10)
From its opening flourish of guitar and bells, She & Him's "Thieves" takes the listener back in time about 50 years. Thoughts of Roy Orbison or Bobby Darrin's "Dream Lover." The new song has the effect, as so many songs of that era, of making the listener happy, even as a sad song unfolds...
Wallace's strong debut EP plays with fire (03/24/10)
Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Wallace offers a grungy mix of folk, country, blues and rock, all accented by his soul-soaked vocals. That may seem like a lot of influences to fit into a five-song debut EP, but this performer seems to maximize his resources. With just his voice and acoustic guitar, accented occasionally by harmonica or tambourine, this guy makes bigger sounds than should be expected...
The Princess and the Frog is classic Disney (03/24/10)
By CAINE GARDNER Film Critic Being a fan of most of Disney's animated releases, it takes something special to really blow me away. When I first viewed their new film "The Princess and the Frog", that is exactly how I found myself -- blown away. The animation, the music, the characters -- this is one of Disney's best outings in a long time...

Now that's just mean (03/24/10)
Generally, I don't like the reality TV genre. Give me soap operas or mindless sitcoms. I use television as a form of escapism. My own real life is quite real enough for me, thanks. There are two exceptions, however. The first is "Gene Simmons Family Jewels."...

A fate no animal deserves (03/24/10)
To the Editor, Last Wednesday evening I found a beautiful copper-eyed black cat with a large thick tail in my yard. After coaxing him over, he let me pet him and stroke that magnificent tail as he looked into my eyes with gratitude. I hoped he would find his way home, and if not, he would be taken to the HSPC for adoption. The next morning I looked for him and was horrified to find him behind my house, dead, his tail broken, his lips curled in pain...
