February is off to a rousing start with plenty of art, literary and music events in the Taos scene to take in this week. Here are some highlights: more
The all-too-familiar formula that is easy to glean from most films that set out as an action spy thriller with a tinge of seriousness — think Daniel Craig’s 007, “Mission Impossible” or “Jason Bourne” — isn’t so much apparent in this movie from director Reed Morano, working from a screenplay by Mark Burnell based on his own novel.  more
What would you think if the Son of God reappeared in our midst? Today? In the Middle East? Would we even recognize Him, understand His message, or would we dismiss Him as just another cult leader or charlatan? more
You have to give a lot of credit to director Greta Gerwig. Not only did she helm one of the best cinema adaptations (among many) of Louisa May Alcott’s 19th century semi-autobiographical novel, she was also pregnant while shooting it and went into labor the day after she turned in her first rough cut of the movie. more
Just what is the "Star Wars" universe trying to teach us? Is it that Wookiees are incredibly loyal, fierce and loveable friends? Or, that brave freedom fighters will always give their lives for a just cause? Or, that evil will never die and that a gigantic armada of Imperial Star Destroyers can be built in secret by a cranky old relative? more
Lightning rarely strikes twice in animated movies, and now with the “Disney Princess Movie” imprint to uphold, the motive to electrify audiences for the new “Frozen II” movie is even more imperative ... more
The new car racing film "Ford v Ferrari" by James Mangold is a well-designed bit of semi-macho fluff based upon a real life rivalry ... more
While we may not have been “psychedelized” as the Chambers Brothers suggested, the past can be tricky and so can the future. That’s why remembering ... more
There's a brief hint of winter set to land in Taos, but by this weekend's Taos Mountain Balloon Rally, things should clear and spirits will certainly be high. In the meantime, there are a lot of other things happening here to keep your creative juices flowing. Of course, for more check out this week's Tempo magazine inside the Taos News on sale bright and early Thursday morning. more
Will Smith actually plays his age, 51, in director Ang Lee’s action thriller “Gemini Man,” but given the level of CGI and stunt double agility exhibited by his character, you’re probably supposed to think, “Dang, he looks pretty good for an old guy.” more
The roar of heavy motorcycles is indelibly linked to the legends of Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda, stars of the iconic hippie-biker movie “Easy Rider” (1969). Nowhere was that more apparent ... more
Julian Fellowes has created quite a little industry cataloguing the manners and accoutrement of British aristocracy circa 1920s via his popular television show, “Downton Abbey.” more
Horror author Stephen King knows what scares us because he knows what hurts. It's the key to his success. He makes horror a personal experience ... more
I hate movies about dogs. Not because I think they’re intrinsically all bad. I just know dogs and for all the love and attention we give them, fate more
The filthy rich Le Domas family likes to play games. In fact their wealth is derived from the board games and other amusements in which their patriarch invested generations ago ... more
A big budget feature like “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” might not have played as well if it was adapted from the book series back in the 1980s when they came out ... more
Back in 2001 when the ‘Fast and Furious” franchise started, the stakes were simple ... more
The year 1969 was when the hippie-free-love-Age of Aquarius came to a horrifying end with the vicious Tate-LaBianca murders, all by a group of violent hippies known as the Charles Manson Family. It actually was the capper. more
Writer-director Ari Aster has made quite a name for himself in a short amount of time for twisting the horror genre on its head. First with the unnerving “Hereditary” ... more
Acclaimed filmmaker Suzan Pitt died June 17 at her home in Taos, according to her daughter-in-law Laura Kraning, The New York Times reported Friday (June 21). She was 75. Her cause of … more
Right up front I have to say "Toy Story 4" is one of the best movies out there right now. Sweet, endearing and, yes, even wholesome ... more
The comedy-sci-fi concept behind Men in Black could probably go on forever if its creators had as much imagination as the special effects designers hired to come up with all ... more
Epic. That’s about all I can say about the new “Godzilla: King of the Monsters.” With the sound cranked up high enough to jiggle your synapses, the movie is a visual and aural experience unlike many in cinemas since the Sensurround in 1974’s “Earthquake.” more
Ok, ok, "Brightburn" is the anti-Superman, the Bizarro World-ish version of the Man of Steel. There, I said it. But, “Brightburn” is more than that. In fact, it has bigger fish to fry. more
The third film of any big budget series should ask one of two things from its audience: 1. Do you need a recap because you saw the second movie so long ago you need a reminder? Or, 2., who cares? ... more
