Is it me or does it seem this time of year things seem less stressful, more fun, and energizing?
My assignment: In 700 words or less, I’m supposed to keep you and your money safe while you’re out buying for the holidays. How about I do it in 17 words and two punctuation points: do not buy gift cards, do not shop online, and do not get talked into extended warranties!
I am a child of the late 1970s — early ’80s — it was a great time to be a kid. Times have changed so much and I am reminded daily of the things my boys will never know or experience.
HERE: Ahwatukee Recreation Center show Nov. 16
Residents got into the spirit of Halloween last week and showcased their creativity with original, cute, funny and scary costumes for the Ahwatukee Foothills News online costume contest.
In “About Time,” Rachel McAdams plays the wife of a man that can travel through time. No, this isn’t a sequel to “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” but its impossible not to make the comparison. There are a few key differences between the two movies, though. For starters, this film is less about the time traveler’s wife and more about the time traveler himself. “About Time” also has the benefit of being more charming than the other McAdams time traveling romance. As far as time-related romantic comedies go, however, it’s no “Groundhog Day.”
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.
"You will know her name," scream the posters for the new big-screen version of "Carrie," as if anyone could forget it after seeing Brian De Palma's brilliant 1976 movie or reading the original Stephen King novel.
A debt ceiling debate? Not exactly something you’d expect to hear on a high school campus.
British electro-pop group Depeche Mode kind of sounds like The Beatles — at least on one track from their new album.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sandra Bullock says making the lost-in-space movie "Gravity" with director Alfonso Cuaron was "the best life decision I think I ever made."
The Kings of Leon are having a great time. Problem is, no one really believes them.
Massachusetts native and professional comedian Bill Burr is known for his acerbic wit and willingness to venture into controversial topics and opinions during his standup routines and on his podcast.
Beholding the late James Gandolfini doing a lovely job in a change-of-pace role significantly intensifies the already funny/sad aspects of "Enough Said," an engaging comic romance set amid the minefields that imperil starting up mid-life relationships. The title notwithstanding, writer-director Nicole Holofcener's look at a 50-ish divorced mother with a daughter about to leave home is never at a loss for words, many of them quite amusing, making the film a leading contender for best girls' night movie of the season. For their part, men will enjoy watching Gandolfini in a relaxed, self-effacing, regular guy performance.
You don’t need to be buttoned-up to be the boss.
Talk about a promising duo for a dark mob comedy: Robert De Niro, whose mob-film pedigree needs no explanation, and Michelle Pfeiffer, who was, after all, “Married to the Mob.”
Rebecca Hall is confidently stepping toward center stage.
“Play is good for our spirits, bodies, and minds. It teaches both dogs and humans to coordinate our efforts with others, to inhibit ourselves even when excited and to share the ball even when we want it for ourselves.”
Sci-fi movies, we all know, create unlikely heroes, and this summer’s no exception.
In “You’re Next,” Barbara Crampton plays quite possibly the smartest person in the history of slasher flicks. Not more than 10 minutes into the picture, her character hears a strange noise coming from upstairs. Her initial reaction is to immediately get out of the house and drive away. That’s it. Movie’s over. Goodnight, everybody!

“Kick-Ass” was one of those movies that seemed to have everybody split. Either you found the film morally reprehensible or you soaked up every minute of the film’s colorful violence and profanity. Personally, I was among the latter group.
By nature Natrell Curtis is a funny and light-hearted kid who just turned 17. By physics he is a mountain of a man at 6-foot-3 and 340 pounds.
