Wildcats boys basketball edges feisty Cowboys

With the Canyon boys basketball team down by two with 13 second left to go in the game, everyone in the Cowboys' gym knew where the ball was going.

Sure enough, just like West Ranch had anticipated, the ball flew to the Cowboys' Mike Edwards, who was double-covered and forced into an off-balance miss from 3-point land with one second left and the Wildcats (14-8, 3-3) escaped with a 46-43 victory Friday night.

’Cats girls basketball nearly let game get away

With the game seemingly in control, the West Ranch girls basketball team relaxed its suffocating defense for the last two minutes of the Friday night's game.

‘The Reader’ is Hard to Love

As in 2002's "The Hours," director Stephen Daldry and screenwriter David Hare's last pairing, "The Reader" has the flawless production values and sheen of prestige that make it easy to admire, yet an emotional detachment that makes it difficult to embrace fully.

‘Taken’ with Liam Neeson is a mindlessly entertaining and blissfully brief thriller

A great deal of the allure in "Taken" comes from the wild juxtaposition of its premise: the idea of Liam Neeson - esteemed, acclaimed, 56-year-old Liam Neeson - kicking all kinds of butt in a Euro B-revenge thriller.

‘New In Town’ is sweet romantic comedy set in the small town heartland of the country

We open on a gathering of the Scrappers Club, four women around a kitchen table pasting things into scrapbooks. The moment we hear one of them talking, we're not too surprised to find her name is Blanche Gunderson. Her sister Marge, the trooper, must have been the ambitious one. Not that Blanche isn't, just that she's relentlessly nice.
