Video Game Review: 'Brutal Legend'

No style of music has taken more of a beating over the years than heavy metal. Critics don't respect it, kids are more likely to spend their allowances on hip-hop, and parents stopped worrying long ago about whether Black Sabbath was going to turn their teens into devil worshippers.

Review: 'Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant'

The movie has good special effects and suitably gruesome characters, but it's bloodless.

Review: 'Astro Boy'

"Astro Boy" is yet another animated comedy in which the hero, who is about the same age as his target audience, is smarter, braver and stronger than the adults in his world.

Review: 'Amelia'

I am drawn to every news story about the attempts, which still continue, to solve the mystery of Amelia Earhart's disappearance on July 2, 1937. It's pretty clear she ditched at sea, but you just never know. Those clues found on a Pacific atoll are tantalizing. It is not her disappearance but her life that fascinates me.

Bob Kellar: Drive-through flu shot clinic provides inoculation and training

Flu shots are an important preventative measure toward providing vital and potentially life-saving protection against illness.

Obama is a healer

President Barack Obama recognizes the responsibility ensuing to the Office of the President of the United States.
