The Bock’s Office: ‘Rio 2’ has its wings clipped

Everyone has a favorite ornithological cliché, whether it’s about birds of a feather flocking together or a bird in the hand being worth two in the bush. In the case of “Rio 2,” the appropriate saying seems to be “kill two birds with one stone” because having a second movie doesn’t make the first one any better.

The Bock’s Office: Zany European exploits abound in ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’

The Bock’s Office: ‘Captain America’ sequel weaker but still packs a punch

When your job used to involve throwing a red, white and blue hunk of metal at a bunch of Nazis, it’s understandable you might feel a little out of place in modern society. But as “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” shows, there are always enemies to be defeated.

The Bock’s Office: ‘Divergent’ tries too hard to be multifaceted

If you only got the chance to hang out with one clique in high school, with any luck, you wouldn’t adhere yourself to people you wound up hating for four years just because you were going through a phase. For the young people of “Divergent,” changing your whole identity involves a bit more pressure than just having to wear goth makeup because all your friends do.

The Bock’s Office: ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ a most welcome sequel

The Bock’s Office: Action is stunted but solid in ‘Non-Stop’

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.

Yampa Valley Fiberworks brings all-natural fleece processing to Craig

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.

The Bock’s Office: ‘Monuments Men’ a protracted but pointed war film

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.”
