    A Guy Thing -- The world could always use another cautionary tale about bachelor parties. This time it's Jason Lee as the groom-to-be, who has just woken up next to Julia Stiles (incidentally, not his intended). Rated: PG-13 The Hours -
  • Leaving The Fold 01/16/03

    One of the more unexpected events in the long saga of the River Park Square redevelopment project happened just before Thanksgiving, when the mall's manager of many years, Bob Robideaux, wound up leaving his post over a dispu
  • Buzz Bin

    In the Mood -- Last year's Super Pops season finale was such a big hit, the Spokane Symphony simply had no choice but to bring it back. On Friday, you can catch "One More Time! Big Band Encore" with the Spokane Symphony presenting swell
  • Now Playing

    8 Mile -- There's a reason that Eminem is so popular on the hip-hop scene: He's good at what he does. And he's also quite good, it turns out, at acting, here playing a slightly less edgy version of himself in director Curtis Hanson's (L.
  • Women On The Verge

    Thank goodness for title cards, those printed tags that let viewers know where a movie is taking them in time and place. In the case of The Hours -- a swirling, year-hopping study of three very different women -- the cards tell us that when dis
  • What's Next? Logos On Helmets?

    Was there ever a more perfectly choreographed college football game than this year's contest between Miami and Ohio State? Even those questionable calls served to provide symmetry, suspense and, in the end, justice. You didn't have to be
  • DVD Review - Buffy

    If it weren't for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I'd probably forget what television was like. Because good television is becoming more and more like big-budget filmmaking: The Sopranos, 24, Six Feet Under. Not that there's anything wrong wit
  • High Tech Tip

    We think of things like sending e-mails and navigating the Internet as liberating activities. But while our minds may be on a journey, our bodies are staying firmly planted in front of a computer monitor, linked up through a keyboard, mo
  • MLK On War And Peace

    Thirty-five years ago, on April 4, 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered a speech that changed my life. I was a student at Union Theological Seminary in New York City that year, at the peak of the Vietnam War. Almost by accident, a f
  • Snowbound

    Feeling a little bored, irritable and edgy lately? Are you restless, yet at the same time immobilized by a pervasive feeling of inertia? If so, you're clearly in the grips of the dreaded winter malady known as cabin fever. And if, say, flying
  • Anything But Ordinary

    At first glance, Lewiston Morning Tribune roving reporter David Johnson could be a worthy spokesman for Subaru's next big ad campaign. Not because he's secretly a movie star, or has a great story about how his Subie saved him from near-anni
  • Letters to The Editor

    Global Warming is Here -- Climate change, also called global warming, is increasingly in our news. Although our region has been only minimally impacted to date compared to most of the world, the degree of future global warming activity
  • Screwball Comedy (1200 B.C.)

    Epic Proportions signals that it's a parody right from the start. At the curtain, the music swells and a sonorous narrator intones, "In the beginning there was wasteland..." Lights come up on a backdrop suggesting miles of barren desert. Su

    The Davenport Brunch -- The atmosphere at the Davenport on a Sunday morning is so remarkably pleasant, it is worth savoring even if you don't have reservations for the hotel's over-the-top brunch located in the grand Isabella Room. The o

  • Asian On The Fly

    Now it can be told: Vina Asian Restaurant is definitely worth a stop. While its generic storefront likely registers as a peripheral blur for commuters whizzing down Ash just below Northwest Blvd., Vina's interior is comfortable, immaculat

  • Italian Trauma Drama

    Last Saturday I went to a fight and a wedding reception broke out. Let's just say that the nuptials of Tina Vitale and Tony Nunzio do not transpire without incident. Clutching our tickets (nicely printed "wedding invitations"), we traips
  • The Last Off-Ramp

    In the summer of 1999, when the River Park Square Mall was about to open, the developer ran into a big misunderstanding with AMC Theaters, the project's prize tenant along with Nordstrom. Not surprisingly, the problem centered on p
