Everyone had reservations when it was announced Peter Jackson would be splitting up “The Hobbit” into a trilogy. Do we really need three separate movies? Can’t this 300-page book be done in one movie? Isn’t this just a ploy to milk a franchise and make an extra couple billion dollars? When “An Unexpected Journey” finally came out last December, we all found that these initial concerns were pretty much spot-on.
Every Sunday night I shake my head as I scroll through my Facebook news feed.
There was a disc jockey, a pig, and not nearly enough blankets to combat the cold.

In his Nov. 6 AFN guest commentary, “Culture is not a costume,” Dr. Neal Lester addresses the “controversy” of the refusal of the Washington Redskins owner to change the team name to something less “offensive.”
Every so often some researcher whips out his calculator and estimates how much it takes to raise a child today. I suspect that this exercise is some sort of subtle pressure from the government to cut down on overpopulation, because the Department of Agriculture says it costs a libido-crushing $241,080 to raise each of our Special Snowflakes to age 18.
Is it me or does it seem this time of year things seem less stressful, more fun, and energizing?
GLENDALE – Norris Vaughan was engulfed into the sea of black.
When you’re a parent of a small child, life can be filled with little moments of panic.
It looked like Disney Animation was dead in the water for a while there. Sure, Pixar has had the company’s back for almost two decades now. In terms of movies that were solely produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios, though, it was a bit of a downhill spiral from “Pocahontas” in 1995 to “Chicken Little” in 2005. While there were some under appreciated gems in the mix like “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” nothing took audiences by storm like “Beauty and the Beast” or “The Lion King” did.
This year, like every year since 1996, thousands of lights will sparkle down Chandler Boulevard in Ahwatukee Foothills and the entire community will be welcome to attend a festival to kick off the holiday season, but there has been several times over the years when the future of the Festival of Lights wasn’t so certain.
Here’s another reason to be thankful this holiday season — the cost of putting Thanksgiving dinner on the table is down slightly from last year.
There were times last season when Isaiah Jones was sent in during mop up time and he’d over think or get out of position.

It seems quite apt that "The Best Man Holiday," a film about a reunion of old friends, feels just like going to an actual reunion. In ways both bad and good.
Few entertainers have had a career like Joan Rivers. She’s filled in for Johnny Carson on “The Tonight Show,” hosted her own talk show, “The Late Show with Joan Rivers” and won a Daytime Emmy in 1990 for her work on “The Joan Rivers Show.”
Mariah Kang is a big fat bully.
Even my own mother scoffed at the idea of her obviously European-looking daughter confessing she celebrated Día De Los Muertos.

Like all coaches in Norris Vaughan’s position he has to guard against the possibility of the upset.
Unless you are an unfortunate soul who is allergic to peanuts, nobody doesn’t like peanut butter, to paraphrase Sarah Lee’s famous tag line.
As creaky as an arthritic hip, "Last Vegas" does for four leading stars of the '70s and '80s what movies like "Tough Guys" and "Grumpy Old Men" did for survivors of Hollywood's storied Golden Age: It lets them show they can still throw a punch, bust a move, and get it on, and that they're not quite ready for the Motion Picture Home just yet. Beyond that, this genteel "Hangover" for the AARP crowd has little to recommend it, though a smattering of funny gags and the nostalgia value of the cast keeps the whole thing more watchable than it has any right to be.
Who you are and your life depends on your past, your community, your neighborhood, your childhood, your parents, etc. This can be summarized by calling it your “circumstances” or your situation. This can sometimes weigh heavily on you if your circumstances are not ideal or are challenging. The good thing is that your circumstances don’t always determine who you are in the future.
