Review: 'The Book of Eli'

I'm at a loss for words, so let me say these right away: "The Book of Eli" is very watchable. You won't be sorry you went. It grips your attention, and then at the end throws in several WTF! moments, which are a bonus. They make everything in the entire movie impossible and incomprehensible - but, hey, WTF.

Review: 'The Lovely Bones'

"The Lovely Bones" is a deplorable film with this message: If you're a 14-year-old girl who has been brutally raped and murdered by a serial killer, you have a lot to look forward to. You can get together in heaven with the other teenage victims of the same killer and gaze down in benevolence upon your family members as they mourn you and realize what a wonderful person you were. Sure, you miss your friends, but your fellow fatalities come dancing to greet you in a meadow of wildflowers, and how cool is that?

Wesley H. Avery: Homestead amounts increased by legislature

Effective Jan. 1, Assembly Bill 1046 increased California homestead exemptions by $25,000. Although this change in the law will not benefit homeowners in the case of foreclosure under a deed of trust, it will make it more difficult for credit card companies to collect the balances owed by their cardholders.
