Hollywood’s efforts to convey this are usually less than subtle, but then, they aren’t as smart as the main characters of “Hidden Figures.”

The Bock’s Office: ‘Passengers’ a sci-fi feature fueled by star power

A first date that involves a spacewalk, swimming in zero gravity, a robot in a red blazer — the science-fiction romance “Passengers” truly has it all in its telling of lovers who are literally star-crossed. Or rather, crossing stars.

The Bock’s Office: ‘Collateral Beauty’ has sadness to spare, not much story

Would “A Christmas Carol” have the same kind of emotional impact if it turned out Bob Cratchit was behind the whole thing to force Ebenezer Scrooge to be a better person? There might be better ways to get a day off and a raise, but resurrecting the ghost of Jacob Marley for your own selfish purposes would still be more acceptable than the actions of “Collateral Beauty.”

The Bock’s Office: ‘Fantastic Beasts’ a fun, frenzied watch

With about a decade of magic behind us, it seems like moviegoers wouldn’t be impressed by much. Yet, the scaly, slimy, feathery, clawed and horned denizens of hammerspace within “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” show it’s still possible to be amazed.

Andy Bockelman: Give thanks for the great attitude of Moffat County athletes

Thanks to the NFL, NBA, MLB and more, sports are intrinsically tied to most of the big market holidays, but relaxing in your Barcalounger for a Christmas Day basketball game or headed to Coors Field for nine innings on the Fourth of July doesn’t have quite the same feel as Thanksgiving football. However, as much as I enjoy catching a pigskin battle while fighting off a tryptophan coma induced by too much turkey and debating a third slice of pumpkin pie, I already had my moment this year that blended sports with giving thanks. Moments, actually.
