Review: 'Battle for Terrra'

"Battle for Terra" is a bewitchingly animated story about an invasion from outer space by aliens who threaten to destroy all life on the planet so they can claim it as their own. I know what you're thinking. Here's the surprise: The aliens are the human race. The inhabitants of Terra look like cute tadpoles, combined with features of mermaids and seahorses.

Review: 'Ghosts of Girlfriends Past'

Remember "Harry, the Rat With Women"? This time his name is Connor Mead, but he's still a rat. A modern Scrooge, who believes marriage is humbug, but is taught otherwise by the ghosts of girlfriends past, present and future, and one who spans all of those periods. Just like Scrooge, he's less interesting after he reforms.

Review: 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'

"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" finally answers the burning question, left hanging after all three previous "Wolverine" movies, of the origins of Logan, whose knuckles conceal long and wicked blades. He is about 175 years old, he apparently stopped changing when he reached Hugh Jackman's age, and neither he, nor we, find out how he developed such an interesting mutation.

Karen Maleck-Whiteley: Say ‘yes’ and nurture yourself

While I was writing last month's article about learning to say "no" more often, I had this thought: "If I am saying 'no' to all of these things, then what am I saying 'yes' to?" You may or may not have had the same thought. It made me think about how healthy it is when we actually, consciously say 'yes' to what we choose to do.

No stopping Valencia swim

Valencia's depth probably wouldn't have allowed it to have much of a let down on Wednesday, but Vikings head coach Chris Stroh still preached to his team that last week's girls' victory and boys' tie against Hart didn't mean they could relax Wednesday against West Ranch.

Pope John XXIII launched Vatican II and then some

VATICAN CITY (AP) - On the night of Oct. 11, 1962, Pope John XXIII did something so natural that it's astonishing it was so revolutionary at the time. He came to the window of the Vatican's Apostolic Palace and spoke to thousands of candle-bearing faithful below - not in the arcane, scripted words of pontiffs past but in those of a father and pastor looking out for his flock.
