MOVIE REVIEW: STAR TREK Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Her ongoing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life-forms and new civilizations; to boldly go where no one has gone before. If you’ve already read my History of Star Trek article, this is the future […]

Movie Review: X-Men Origins: Wolverine When I read comic books in my youth, I always loved the “origin of” issues, which told me about he beginnings of my favorite super heroes.

JAMES BOND – QUANTUM OF SOLACE The latest James Bond movie opened this weekend in the US, beginning on Friday. It is already #1 in Europe, having opened there a week earlier, and a huge hit in the UK, where it opened two weeks ago. The first weekend in the UK was a record at […]

Concert Review: James Taylor at Red Rocks in Denver In December I was in Tokyo. I’d been in Asia for 2 weeks already and I was worn out, cold, lonely, and homesick. As I walked by a Starbucks in the Shinjuku district of Tokyo, I heard the strains of James Taylor. It took me home. […]

Concert Review: Stevie Wonder at Coors Amphitheater in Denver Stevie Wonder has toured only once since 1988. It’s been 13 years since he has graced Denver with a concert, and Denver welcomed him back with open arms to Fiddler’s Green at the Coors Amhitheater. Despite starting 30 minutes late, he played for over two hours […]

MOVIE REVIEW: WALL-E What a sweet movie, what a cute film. Who else but Pixar could make a movie that’s animation, science-fiction, comedy, spaceships, green — and romance…and make it all work? And the tributes to other movies of this genre! In the same way that Pixar’s The Incredibles paid tribute to early James Bond […]

History of The War: TV miniseries

THE WAR: TV MINISERIES In January I wrote about my conversation with Ken Burns, award winning producer of The Civil War documentary, about his upcoming miniseries about World War II called simply The War. This presentation took place at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. He was at that time previewing his 7-part, 14.5 […]
