Re: “So fur, so good

The reviewers comment, 'Ben Whishaw gets Paddington's voice just right, and the movie wouldn't have worked without the absolutely correct actor bringing him to life' is very interesting. Colin Firth was originally penned for the part, and even recorded several sections before it was determined, by mutal consent apparently, that the 'fit' just wasn't right. Glad Mr. Whishaw strikes the right cord, then!

Re: “Renowned dancer Eiko Otake investigates the tragedy of the Fukushima disaster

Such a beautiful exhibit. I love that it captured the desolation and decay around the site with such sensitivity. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this.

Re: “Let my people go big

"Moses communicates with a Yahweh who has taken the form of a preternaturally serene young boy." Sounds to me more like Dionysus or Apollo!

The Mosaic Law strictly prohibits creating visual images of God. Congratulations to Ridley Scott for managing to disrespect Moses and the Hebrew religion twice in one scene! First, by depicting God at all. Second, on drawing from Greco-Roman mythology for his imagery. Check out Ezekiel, Chapter One, for a Hebrew view of what God might look like.

Re: “Let my people go big

The photo caption reads, "Christian Bale gets his gospel on..." Since when is Exodus part of the gospel?

Re: “Despicable Me 2 lives up to the title in all the worst ways

This reviewer is a perfect example of the 'finds everything offensive' brigade'. I hope this reviewer stays home for the rest of her life as it is obvious she finds the world just too mean and oppressive.

Re: “Renowned dancer Eiko Otake investigates the tragedy of the Fukushima disaster

TEPCO the Japanese nuclear power company continues to lie to the people of Japan and to the world about the true levels of radiation released into the atmosphere, ground and into the Pacific Ocean! TEPCO also continues to dump millions of gallons of radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean nonstop every single day to contaminate the plant life, insects, fish, ocean life and animals. We are now being told not to eat anyTuna and large fish at all because the radiation levels are unsafe to put into our body's and Fukushima radiation is now verified to be moving into the coast of California and the beaches will soon be polluted with this radiation! There is now verified proof of DNA damage and mutations throughout the food chain and we humans are next to suffer! and if we don't detox our bodies suffer we will! Experts recommend to commence detoxing with the natural mineral called zeolite that is proven to safely remove both radiation and heavy metals from the human body.This detox is VERY important to help prevent DNA damage that will cause disease and future ongoing mutations! For more quality information do an online search for the website with the single word Zeolite or search for" Detox With Micronized Zeolite"

The St. John's International Women's Film Festival in Newfoundland, Canada just celebrated its 25th anniversary last month. The Rocky Mountain Women's Film Festival is not alone!

Re: “Fruitvale Station doesn't trust its audience to know true tragedy

Terrible review. Who ever wrote this should think about starting a new career. It doesn't matter who (good or bad person) or what (young black man, paragraph 10) a person is.. no one should be treated or gunned down like that.

Re: “Makeup case

"Men do figure into the women's lives in Love, but as accessories like cuff links, not as meaningful companions."

Are you familiar with the Bechdel test, by any chance? Wikipedia: "...the Bechdel test was introduced in Alison Bechdel's comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For. In a 1985 strip titled "The Rule", an unnamed female character says that she only watches a movie if it satisfies the following requirements:

1. It has to have at least two women in it,
2. who talk to each other,
3. about something besides a man."

When you begin to apply this test to theatre, television or film, you will find that disturbingly few pieces pass it, and you begin to view entertainment and what it tells us about how interested (or not) our society is in the inner life of women in a much different (read: bleaker) light. Indeed, the scarcity of plays in which there are roles for several women - especially women over 30 - instead of two romantic rivals or one mother and one ingenue is still, even in this day and age, very disappointing. LLAWIW is one of a handful in which your statement is true; it's the exception, not the rule. Thank goodness (and female playwrights) for the few that exist and manage to make it into production.

Re: “'Wheelwork of the universe'

Loved the write up. Can't wait to go!! P.S. Indy staff writers: Would you please put the M-Sun, open/closing time of the gallery/event in the body of the article or on the side. It's frustrating to have to do an endless click-search to find out the details. Thanks!

Re: “In opening weekend for two plays, The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? soars

I think you were too hard on Floyd and Clea. The singing voices and acting were fine. The play is very talky which makes it feel slow. But it wasn't that painful. The songs were not memorable, but they did move the story along. It was an enjoyable evening.

Re: “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Adult World, Ravenous

Ravenous is a cult classic! Robert Carlyle and Guy Pearce gave great performances. Worth watching for sure.

Re: “Edge of Tomorrow excels with humor, suspense and poignancy

I really like this actress. She did a sci-fi movie a few years ago w/ Matt Damon that was also really good- The Adjustment Bureau. See it for her- Emily Blunt is one of my favorite actresses.
