Holbrook Pond Recreation Area will glow with Christmas decorations to delight children and adults alike during the Ho Ho Holbrook Festival of Lights from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
"The Penguins of Madagascar" is a spin-off from the successful "Madagascar" animated franchise, and while it has its moments of energy and humor, I think it would've been much more successful as a DVD release.
The Christmas tree outside Club Stewart will come to life and Santa will greet children during the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Thursday.
The "Hunger Games" series continues with the recently released third installment, "Mockingjay - Part 1," which goes the same route that worked for both the "Harry Potter" and "Twilight" series: Split the final chapter into two parts to milk the proverbial cash cow.

Ever since he grabbed the public's attention with the Oscar-nominated "Memento" in 2000, director Christopher Nolan has established himself as one of the most brilliant filmmakers of the 21st century.
"Nightcrawler" is nothing short of a revelation in filmmaking.

I think if Michael Mann had made either "Broadcast News" or "Network," this is probably what it would look like.
The eighth annual Ricefest starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 8 in downtown Riceboro.
"John Wick" stars Keanu Reeves in a film that doesn't try to do anything more than be a thoroughly enjoyable revenge movie with an enormous sense of style and visual flair.
Join the fun at Club Stewart's Halloween Bash, starting at 9 p.m. Friday. Enjoy DJFreaksho, drink specials and a costume contest. There's a $7 cover charge. Patrons must be 18 or older to enter, and at least 21 to drink.
"Fury" is a World War II movie that provides a sense of intense, visceral violence and a semblance of authenticity that probably hasn't been seen since "Saving Private Ryan." I think this movie could be for WWII what Platoon was for Vietnam.

Way back when, I grew up in lovely Calabasas, California, alongside such notables as Ricky Schroeder and Erik Menendez. (Thankfully, I got out before the Kardashians arrived.) If, by chance, you happen upon a copy of Calabasas High School’s 1986 yearbook, you’ll see a picture of my friend Aaron Priceman in a trenchcoat and sunglasses standing alongside yours truly dressed up as Ed Grimley.
