  • If the medium of moving pictures is here not just to entertain us, but also perhaps to enlighten and engage us with deeper feelings and sincere emotion – authenticity means something.

     

    Enter “Wish I Was Here,” the second feature film directed by Zach Braff, whose “Garden State” was quickly hailed as a sort of voice-of-a-generation work before suffering years of subsequent backlash and criticism for its quirkiness (Are you listening, Lena Dunham?)

  •  What if they made blockbuster summer action movies that made you think and even elicited genuine emotion? It doesn't happen often, but when it does it's usually something special. Think Christopher Nolan's "Inception."

  • FORT LUPTON — Star Theatre revivalist Paul Ludwig is scurrying to give the hallmark building’s façade a final facelift by Fourth of July in hopes of evoking the spirit of giving and community pride.

    Ludwig and sidekick Tom Martz have been busy the last few weeks making the theater’s “best side” – the marquee, ticket office and front poster boards – look better just in time for Fort Lupton’s inaugural Old-Fashioned Fourth of July event, a shindig Ludwig and town officials are hoping will draw a big crowd.

  • Perhaps the worst part about a game you truly love playing, win or lose, is when it’s over.

    Pride in winning or the reality check of licking your wounds certainly adds some character, but having to move on to something else after investing so much time and effort stings.

    Subaru of America would make a terrible ex-boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse. The minute you’re ready to leave, it keeps calling you back. And when you finally part ways, they just keep looking better and better.

    In 1998, Roland Emmerich gave us a Godzilla film not worthy of the kaiju’s name. Now, admittedly, I like the film; it’s like “Armageddon” in that it’s by no means a good film, but it possesses enough mindless entertainment to keep me from changing the channel when I stumble upon it on F/X while home sick from work.

  • FORT LUPTON — A collection of green-thumb volunteers has the new community garden in Fort Lupton ready to grow.

    After two work days last month, the site of the new garden — at 438 Harrison Ave. on a half lot between two houses — began to resemble a suitable spot for future planting.

    The property, owned by Crossroads Church Fort Lupton campus, was acquired earlier this year.

  • Cameron Diaz’s Carly Whitten has found a great boyfriend in Mark King (Nikolaj Coster-Waldrau), the kind that shows up outside her office with flowers and champagne — the kind that plunks down big money at the jewelry store for an eight-week anniversary.

    The thing is, he’s a lousy husband to Kate (Leslie Mann) as he carries on with another woman.

    Some lucky kid is going to engineer magic and quickly land a job at General Motors. Unfortunately until then, there’s no magic wand to wave for what’s happening at GM right now, and I’m guessing that the bruised automaker would even settle for a hat with potential at this point.

     

  • Anyone who comes away from viewing director Errol Morris’ “The Unknown Known” without a keen appreciation for how good a liar former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is, they surely suffer from what the doc’s central figure refers to as a “failure of imagination.”

    Behold the 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible. I won’t bury the lead, so here it is: This car costs $272,220.  

    From this point forward, I’ll attempt to justify that price.
