Summer movie madness

Though it isn't anything official, calendar-wise, the Memorial Day weekend began the "summer" in the minds of moviegoers. And June, July and August will bring us, hopefully, the kinds of films that will make the summer special. On tap are romances, comedies, horror films, spy thrillers and toy stories, some of which might one day become classics - and then you can say you were there when they first opened.

Review: 'Splice'

Well-timed to open soon after Craig Venter's announcement of a self-replicating cell, here's a halfway serious science fiction movie about two researchers who slip some human DNA into a cloning experiment, and end up with an unexpected outcome, or a child, or a monster, take your pick. The screenplay blends human psychology with scientific speculation and has genuine interest until it goes on autopilot with one of the chase scenes Hollywood now permits few pictures to end without.

Review: 'Marmaduke'

Dogs cannot talk. This we know. Dogs can talk in the movies. This we also know. But when we see them lip-synching with their dialogue, it's just plain grotesque. The best approach is the one used by "Garfield" in which we saw the cat and heard Bill Murray, but there was no nonsense about Garfield's mouth moving.

Tom Pattantyus: Jumping through hoops or over fences

I arrived in the United States with my wife and two sons in December 1963, after a very stormy (40-foot swells at times) Atlantic crossing on the old Queen Mary. I will never forget the sight of the Statue of Liberty, seen through the mist of the evening as the huge ship approached the 42nd Street Pier.

Don’t ask, don’t tell: don’t matter

In 1993, Congress adopted - and President Bill Clinton signed - a law (Public Law 103-160) that declared: "The presence in the armed forces of persons who demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability."

It's their fault

The blame-laying campaign for President Barack Obama is under way. Even though he criticized BP for finger-pointing, his administration is not beyond doing the exact same thing to cover up its weak response to a growing man made disaster.
