When Aaron Paul received the script for "Need for Speed," he had very little interest in even reading the story, let alone taking a starring a role in the movie.
Attorneys for immigrant rights groups asked the U.S. Supreme Court Monday to rebuff a last-ditch attempt by the state to start prosecuting people for harboring and transporting those not in the country legally.
There’s something very powerful, profound, and cathartic about the 40 days of Lent. Even at times in my life when I felt alienated from the body of Christ, wanted nothing to do with “organized” religion, or pushed faithful living to the edges of my being, Lent has always been important in my life. On Ash Wednesday (March 5 this year), the church calls us all to the observance of a holy Lent. It’s a strange and compelling invitation.
What would 2014 and beyond look like if we as people decided to generously share both our life in faith and money with no expectation of return? Well, it would set us free to experience blessing. A few days ago a total stranger shared generously with me. When I tried to thank her and give back, she refused with a smile on her faith. It caught me off guard. It was an action that was so counter cultural. We live in a world where we give and usually expect something in return. In our popular market driven worldview, our money and faith lives are linked in that they are both means of reciprocity. I trade my time and talent to get money, and then I trade money to get what I need or want.
Saying they were protecting the legislative process, the House and Senate voted along party lines Thursday to hire a lawyer to help them fight subpoenas over the state's controversial 2010 immigration law.
Republican legislative leaders are moving to use taxpayer funds to pay the legal fees of current and former lawmakers whose personal emails have been subpoenaed in the ongoing legal fight over a 2010 immigration law.
Gov. Jan Brewer is asking the nation's high court to let it enforce a 2010 law making it a crime to knowingly transport or harbor those in the country illegally.
A federal judge has allowed challengers to the state's major law aimed at illegal immigrants to see what groups advocating its passage were advising legislators.
A federal appeals court may be poised to void a decision by Gov. Jan Brewer to deny driver's licenses to “dreamers” the Obama administration has allowed to stay and work in this country.
An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, "Ender's Game" frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy ant-like aliens, called Formics, in which Earth's fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven't even hit puberty yet. At face value, the film presents an electrifying star-wars scenario — that rare case where an epic space battle transpires entirely within the span of two hours — while at the same time managing to deliver a higher pedagogical message about tolerance, empathy and coping under pressure. Against considerable odds, this risky-sounding Orson Scott Card adaptation actually works, as director Gavin Hood pulls off the sort of teen-targeted franchise starter Summit was hoping for.
This weekend the Ahwatukee Community Swim and Tennis Center will be hosting its 12th Annual Haunted House and Hayride for the entire family.
Alfonso Cuarón’s “Gravity” just might have the most horrifying premise in all of movies. There are several other strong contenders like “Buried,” in which Ryan Reynolds was trapped in a coffin underground, and “127 Hours,” where James Franco was stuck between a rock and a hard place. But honestly, what’s scarier than being stranded in space with limited air and no communication with Earth? Going to outer space is in itself a fairly scary thought. The notion of anything going wrong up there is the worst nightmare imaginable. As the tagline to “Alien” says, in space no one can hear you scream.
Mountain Pointe High School will host Rachel’s Challenge today to try and spread awareness on bullying and to make the Pride community feel more compassionate among one other.
Sci-fi movies, we all know, create unlikely heroes, and this summer’s no exception.

There’s no denying that Richard Donner set the bar for the “Superman” franchise with his 1978 film. The icy landscapes of Planet Krypton, John Williams’ vigorous musical score, Christopher Reeve’s iconic performance, every aspect of Donner’s movie remains definitive. Since then, most interpretations of Superman have either drawn inspiration from or paid homage to the original classic. One has to give director Zack Snyder and producer Christopher Nolan credit for taking “Man of Steel” in the complete opposite direction. Where Donner’s “Superman” was light, funny, and colorful, “Man of Steel” is dark, serious, and brooding. The film presents a vision of Superman that’s new and bold with a satisfying payoff.
In the galaxy of big-screen superheros — a rather glum lot — Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man is the snappy one.
"Oblivion” is another movie that seems better suited for a video game than a motion picture. Watching the characters engage in endless shoot outs and explore vast, abandoned terrains, all you want to do is get your hands on a controller. Since a movie is unequipped with game play, though, you’re forced to sit back and merely observe the story. Then again, most modern video games have more three-dimensional characters and smarter plots than “Oblivion.” This science fiction mystery from director Joseph Kosinski isn’t completely without some good ideas, elevating it above “Transformers” schlock. It’s just unfortunate those ideas never meld into anything that intriguing.
Saying the move would make no sense, Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday refused to insert an anti-abortion provision into her plan to expand the state's Medicaid program.
Gov. Jan Brewer is making a bid this week to salvage part of what's left of the law she signed in 2010 aimed at illegal immigration.
Harmony Korine seems to want it both ways, all day, with "Spring Breakers," his super-stylized descent into a sunbaked hell where bikini-clad, gun-toting college babes serve as our guides.
A part of Arizona's 2010 immigration law aimed at day laborers and those who hire them is unconstitutional and unenforceable, a federal appeals court ruled Monday.
Gov. Jan Brewer -- or at least her attorneys -- will get a chance to argue that Arizona should be allowed to enforce a law aimed at those who harbor illegal immigrants.
