    This Week’s Review: “Cold Pursuit”

    I was somewhat reluctant to see Liam Neeson’s latest thriller, “Cold Pursuit.” I have respected Neeson since his debut in the 1970s, but his recent toxic, racist outburst has, to put it nicely, damaged his reputation. He has apologized, but his career may be over. “Cold Pursuit” is not a bad movie, but I was …

    This Week’s Review: “They Shall Not Grow Old”

    The only film I saw during the weekend of February 2 was Peter Jackson’s “They Shall Not Grow Old.” I was slack-jawed. The film is a documentary commemorating the end of World War I and consists of footage from that war; we have seen much of that footage over the years, but Jackson and his …

    This Week’s Review: A Stay-at-Home Weekend

    Even if I hadn’t come down with a stomach ailment, the weekend of January 26 looked bleak. I had no interest in “The Kid Who Would Be King”; I was never fond of Disney’s “The Sword in the Stone,” and this one appeared equally inane. To be honest, I have to admit that, even as …

    In an era of ripped jeans and purposely untied shoelaces, the classically styled ensembles of HBU’s Student Foundation are a contrast in a crowd. Students on assignment in the prestigious group are polished from head-to-toe, and serve as fitting representatives of the University, interacting with friends and guests of HBU.

    This Week’s Review: “Glass”

    I only had time for one film during the weekend of January 19 and it turned out better than I had expected. I usually enjoy the films of M. Night Shyamalan, and his “Glass” is enjoyable, but only if you have also seen “Unbreakable” and “Split.” I need to review those films on several points, …
