The new film “Contagion” made me feel icky. We humans are a disgusting race. Directed by Steven Soderbergh, “Contagion” is a sprawling epic that shows the global outbreak of an initially unknown lethal disease from several points of view around the globe. Read More »...

Everyone has a line they do not want crossed. For me, “Hobo with a Shotgun” went way north of mine. When the film got to be too much for me to look at, I turned my gaze to the “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” poster hanging in my living room, which of course is a better movie than “Hob...
