A trying experience like air travel is not meant for the impatient. The people who can’t help but tear into a bag of peanuts seconds after finding their seats are exactly the crowd the makers of “Non-Stop” had in mind as their audience, but it may be the folks with the greater attention span who will enjoy it more.
The time is nigh for the red carpet crowd as the 86th annual Academy Awards approaches, promising a night of glitz and glamour for folks in love with a little golden man named Oscar.
About 10 miles north of Craig, tucked away just off Colorado Highway 13, is an indistinguishable warehouse, hugged in by fenced animals including sheep, alpacas and goats. The 4,000-square-foot building easily blends in with the agricultural area, surrounded by other properties marked with barns and livestock. But inside is a unique find.
Not every film about the subject of art is as fascinating as the art itself. If the man who painted “The Last Supper” were remembered solely for the misfire that was “The Da Vinci Code,” the Louvre certainly would have far fewer patrons gathered around his most famous works. Even so, the modern-day efforts to preserve the accomplishments of the past are worth looking at in a movie like “The Monuments Men.”

Valentine’s Day is upon us again, and what would the middle of February be without a few selections at the local bijou to provide people with a good date night? Whether you and your significant other are planning to step out on the town or snuggle up at home with a DVD, there are plentiful films to be enjoyed for whatever your liking, many of which have come out within the last year.
As fun as they may be, three-day weekends usually aren’t life-changing events for most people. Then again, the story of “Labor Day” involves far more than just a time to sleep late and eat hot dogs at the annual neighborhood block party.
A documentary following the story of the Villard sheep ranch is moving into post-production. Yuri Chicovsky sought funds for his film, Sage Country, via the crowd-funding site, Kickstarter, and as of Friday surpassed his goal by more than $6,000. His next step is to pull the film together — and most of the work, from the soundtrack to the editing, Chicovsky will do himself.
Watching a man of average build skirmish with someone the size of William “Refrigerator” Perry should have an element of surprise to it, but when you’re asking yourself repeatedly, “Haven’t I seen this before?” that kind of ruins the experience. Such is the problem with “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.”
It’s that time again — the time to look back on the past year in cinema and assess what constituted the very best of the film world.
Cold and dark winter days call for some girl time, and KRAI and 55 Country wants to help. The radio station is sponsoring its third annual Girls Day Out, an event that brings several women-centric activities together under one roof. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Centennial Mall.
After four years in the making, Chicovsky’s documentary about area sheep ranchers is moving into the post-production stage. The film “Sage Country” — focusing on the lives of the family and workers of Villard Ranch — can currently be found as a campaign on fundraising website Kickstarter, which allows independent filmmakers and others seeking money to get creative projects going through different avenues.
If family issues were tangible, you could mix together decades of resentment, plentiful substance abuse, sprinkle it with adultery, add in a smidgen of incest, stick it in the blender and drink it. It certainly wouldn’t be palatable, but the lesson you’d learn would be akin to watching a movie like “August: Osage County.”
The Craig museum has canceled the 2014 Winter Festival. It will be the first time in eight years the festival has not happened.
