A Barbra Blu-ray Bonanza – Streisand3 on DVD
by Chris Narloch
The Guilt Trip, Barbra Streisand’s return to the big screen in a starring role for the first time in many years, wasn’t the holiday blockbuster hit that Paramount had hoped for, but I enjoyed it.
More people will see it when it arrives on DVD at the end of April, and its release seems to have spurred a flurry of new Barbra Blu-rays, including her classic ‘60’s musicals, Hello, Dolly and Funny Girl.
“42” Is A 10 On The Movie Meter - Plus Other New Films Reviewed
by Chris Narloch
If you have time to catch a movie this weekend, there are actually several interesting options to consider. As we move closer to the big summer releases, studios are finally putting some good movies in theaters, after the cinematic wasteland of the last three months. Read on for my tips on what to see and what to avoid.
At The Multiplex
While I was watching “42,” I couldn’t help but imagine what the movie would have been like if Quentin Tarantino had directed it. Rather than turn the other cheek (which Jackie Robinson did with the utmost class), Tarantino would probably have had the first black baseball player in the major leagues pull out an Uzi and blow the heads of his racist tormentors clean off.
Vicki Lawrence Brings Thunderous Laughter to Thunder Valley Resort
Photos and review by Colt McGraw
Multi-facetted Hollywood gem, Vicki Lawrence brought her long running “Two Woman Show” to Thunder Valley, a Four Diamond Award winning casino and resort on April, 13, and it was definitely a hit.
Lawrence is most well-known and loved for her role as Thelma Harper, a role created for the Emmy Award winning Carol Burnett Show. The CBS sitcom was recognized by Time magazine as one of the best TV shows of all time. During its 11 year run from 1967 to 1978 the sensational sketch program featured guests such as Lily Tomlin, Liza Minnelli and Merv Griffin to name just a few.
As Reno Pride Matures, for Me, It Is the End of an Era
Commentary by Kaye Crawford
As I sit at my desk by the window in the front room of our small duplex, shared with a sofa and my son's rocker-recliner where he sits to watch Netflex every day, with three large dogs at his feet, I stare at the email from my ex-business partner and reflect on our past.
It seems like just yesterday that I sat before two Parks & Recreation employees who snatched the pen right out of my hand saying, "Here, let me help you fill it out!" "It's about time," the other woman exclaimed as I began the lengthy process of filling out forms for the first-ever Gay Pride Celebration in what was labeled "the little red-neck town" of Reno, Nevada. In the early 90's, to be Gay in Reno meant to be discreet; to hide in fear of recognition. My beloved friend, Bill Metz, was murdered in 1994 simply because he was Gay.
An Evening with David Sedaris at the Crest
by Colt McGraw
David Sedaris has written himself into the homes of millions around the world, and now he is making a return trip to Sacramento where he will share his newest insights into his mad and wonderful world through his newest work, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls.
Sedaris' imagination and observation to social detail matched with his descriptive powers have developed a distinctive style and a legion of fans, prompting the The Chicago Tribune to say “Sedaris’s droll assessment of the mundane and the eccentrics who inhabit the world’s crevices make him one of the greatest humorists writing today.”
