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.

Hale Andrew Antico: How can I modify my home loans

If there is any one question I get over and over again, it is people stuck in an unaffordable mortgage asking me how to force Big Mortgage Company, Inc. to change their home loan to something they can afford.

Tea-partiers misguided

Thank you for pointing out in the tea party article that Reagan actually increased taxes while he was Governor ("All taxed out at 'Tea Party,' April 16).

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.

Promote self-sufficiency and strong marriages

Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson delivered his famous "War on Poverty" speech, purposing "to cure it and, above all, to prevent it." Unfortunately, like our other wars in the last half-century, this one has not lived up to its noble ideals.

Busting misconceptions about investor perceptions

We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on. With the constant barrage of information available in today's 24/7 world, it's important to not get caught up in the day-to-day market volatility and news headlines. That daily hype doesn't always dovetail with what Wells Fargo Advisors top strategists are observing in the financial marketplace.
