WINE WISDOM: Are they really super stores? One of the recent trends in the wine business is the arrival of wine superstores, or really alcohol superstores, since these retail outlets offer an assortment of thousands of beers and spirits in addition to mass quantities of wines.

Believing I have a responsibility to my readers to weigh in on the topic, I made two visits to one.The store reminded me of a Lowe’s or The Home Depot for alcohol. [...]

Movies: 'Pirate' Geoffrey Rush has the personal... You could call him a late bloomer. Australian actor Geoffrey Rush had already gone through 23 years of working in theater and small films before American audiences caught on with what became his Oscar-winning performance as troubled-but-brilliant concert pianist David Helfgott in "Shine," which came out in 1996.  And it’s been an additional busy two decades for Rush since then, with major roles in films ranging from "Shakespeare in Love" and "The Tailor of Panama" to "The Life and [...]

Stay Tuned: Food and life on ‘Jacques... The upcoming American Masters episode featuring acclaimed chef Jacques Pepin begins with a thought from chef Anthony Bourdain: “I believe that before you have sex with another human being, you should be capable of preparing them an omelet to Jacques Pepin’s standards the next morning. Wouldn’t the world be a better place, a nicer place?” I’m guessing it couldn’t hurt but what I do know is that “Jacques Pepin: The Art of Craft” is an [...]

Lyric brandishes a fresh, sharp... BOSTON - A beloved classic has been given a modern and lean spin in the Lyric Stage Company of Boston’s new production of “Camelot,” the musical by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, the same writing team known for “My Fair Lady” and “Brigadoon.”Although I’m a musical theater geek, somehow I had never managed to catch this show. "Camelot" is well known to a generation of baby boomers who grew up on the cast recording with Julie [...]

Movies: It's a pirates life for Javier Bardem Over the 30 years that Spanish actor Javier Bardem has been regularly working in television and film. He shown an amazing range, hitting perfect notes as romantic leads, tough heroes, free-spirited seducers, physically challenged victims, you name it. But there’s always been something special about his portrayal of villains. It’s clear that he relishes playing them, and pushing them over the top. Most recently he was the sadistic Silva in the Bond film "Skyfall." A few years [...]

MOVIE REVIEW: 'Alien: Covenant' delivers terrors “Alien: Covenant” picks up in 2104, 10 years after the events depicted in “Prometheus” and 17 years before the events in “Alien.”

MOVIE REVIEW: Make a date with 'The Wedding Plan' I doubt I'll be the first to label “The Wedding Plan” as “My Big Fat Hasidic Wedding.” But that's a bit of an insult to the former, which has much more going for it than just a frustrated singleton negotiating love and a crazy family with rapidly fading patience. But what interests director Rama Burshtein more are the gnashing gears inside her heroinie Michal's head, as her faith in herself and her God are put to the ultimate test.

MOVIE REVIEW: Teen drama 'Everything' isn't all... If you've read the popular young adult novel by Nicola Yoon that serves as the film's source material, then you know what's coming and there's really not much need to see this competently made, but uneven film.

Stay Tuned: Experiencing life as 19th century... “It’s a bit bleak isn’t it?” It’s a statement more than a question and an understatement at that.
