  • Denzel's dark side

  • Citizen Critique - Don't Say a Word

  • Visual Arts Tour highlights

    We found it interesting -- sad, really that in our recent KXLY/Inlander survey, cultural/entertainment opportunities were ranked the second least important concern of Spokane residents. While we're pretty sure the ranking would be much highe
  • High velocity

    It's one of the most memorable scenes in the James Bond film canon, that wild downhill ski chase (which was clocked at 65 mph) in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. The man who choreographed and stunt-skied that segment, Willy Bogner, has jus
  • Tooling around O'Toole

    Spokane Civic Theatre opened its 55th season with a musical that drew me back into a world that I vividly recall: the l950s. It was a time when we huddled around television, mesmerized by the ability to have entertainment in our own
  • Citizen critique-Riding in Cars

    Riding in Cars with Boys, Penny Marshall's latest offering to the Gods of Chick Flick, tries hard to be the sweet coming-of-age drama promised by the trailer. In certain respects, it succeeds. The primary storyline finds young Beverly (D

  • Beyond birds and bees

  • CD Review - White Strips

    White Stripes are a boy-girl guitar-drum duo from Detroit with a savage sense of humor and fierce new garage-rock sermons for the faithful. Primitive and emotional in the very best rock 'n' roll tradition, Jack and Meg White gleefully car
