So far this year, we’ve seen the guy dressed like a flying mammal fight the man in the long johns and cape, not to mention the regenerating nutcase who should be subject to mattress tag penalties for removal of his mask. Who’d have thought the dude who carries around the red, white and blue circle squaring off with the genius in the crimson and gold metal suit would feel the most natural? Either way, so begins the summer movie season with “Captain America: Civil War.”
The Craig Concert Association will host its grand finale at 7 p.m. Friday with Brassfire featuring Jens Lindemann in the Moffat County High School auditorium, 900 Finley Lane.
You may know the basic narrative of “The Jungle Book,” but it’s a testimony to moviemaking when something with decades of familiarity can make you jump out of your seat in surprise at the fur, scales, claws and fangs that seemingly come out of nowhere. It almost makes you wish they could figure out something better than a red diaper for the hero to wear.
Recent movies like “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “The Big Short” have shown us how insane corporate antics can be, primarily from a male perspective. With “The Boss,” we see the ladies’ take on the business world through a highly progressive topic — baked goods.
Grand Olde West Days, Whittle the Wood have variety of musical acts
Summer is on the way for Craig and Moffat County, and with the warmer weather comes favorite seasonal events like Grand Olde West Days and Whittle the Wood Rendezvous.
There are few superhero clashes that every comic book fan has wanted to see on the big screen more than that of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” a youthful eagerness kept in check by a steadfast decision to hate the outcome before even seeing it. The casual film viewer should never trust a fanboy’s assessment on anything within pop culture, but yes, there are good reasons for the negativity you’ve already heard.
As “Zootopia” shows, there are a lot of things that separate us from the rest of the animal kingdom, but it’s only when you see a critter freak out about nudity that you start to see how alike we can truly be.
Craig Concert Association welcomes people with vast array of talents
The free concert is slated for 7 p.m. on March 26 in the Moffat County High School auditorium, and auditions run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday in the same auditorium.
The Bud Light Rocks the Boat Free Concert Series has announced the Colorado jamgrass band Leftover Salmon will take the Gondola Square stage at Steamboat Ski Area at 3:30 p.m. April 10.
The 88th annual Academy Awards takes place this Sunday, and even amid the various Hollywood outrages about snubs, boycotts and all the political hubbub that’s part of the battle for the statuette, the show must go on. Here are my selections for the likely winners based on both trends and gut instinct, as well as a few thoughts on whether or not the heavy favorite is indeed the best of the bunch.
Protecting the innocent and providing a positive role model for today’s youth to emulate is all well and good, but there’s something to be said for someone who can unleash a litany of swears between eviscerating his enemies and still be the most likeable guy on screen. Enter “Deadpool.”
Valentine’s Day: a portion of the calendar devoted to romance that also happens to occur right in the dead of winter. No wonder Hollywood has so many love stories out this time of year. Whether your tastes have you wanting to flock to theaters to see Nicholas Sparks fare “The Choice,” the rom-com “How to Be Single” or the alternative period piece “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” — Jane Austen absolutely would have written Elizabeth Bennet as a slayer of the undead if she had thought of it — remember there is a bounty of options, many that have been released in the past year or two.
Any good sequel should allow a storyline come full circle, but like a pair of pants attempting to cover a gargantuan gut, “Kung Fu Panda 3” doesn’t quite get there.
Alaska String Band will perform “A Southeast Alaskan Odyssey” Saturday night in the Moffat County High School auditorium. The group is composed of the Zahasky family, parents Paul and Melissa and children Laura, Abigail and Quinn, all using a wide variety of instruments in genres including swing, jazz, bluegrass, Celtic, gospel and more.
Another year has come and gone, and the highlights have shone through greatly. Some of the best movies have found widespread audiences and made lots of cash, while others remain obscure. Here are my thoughts on what was most worth watching.
