Woody Allen lets us down, but Ian McKellen and Paul Rudd pick us up as two very different heroes.
When longtime Laugh-In announcer Gary Owens died Feb. 13, one of the great voices of the past century was stilled.
When Harry Met Sally
For our third Movies for Grownups Radio Show, back in 2003, we celebrated the arrival of 2004 with this rundown of our favorite New Year's Eve movies. Still a pretty good list. What would you add?
Reiner grab
Is this a trend? Last week's movies were mostly guy-oriented, and this week's top films follow suit: There's a tale of modern love featuring two beloved male stars, a real-life story of true football greatness and a testosterone-laden action spectacle. Shall we chalk it up to male pattern boldness?
Linklater

Notable events from our shared experience.

(In fact, as the Associated Press pointed out in its story about Dylan's election, "the academy once was designed to keep the likes of Dylan away, shunning everyone from jazz artists to modernist poets. Even now, the vast majority of the musicians come from the classical community, with exceptions including Stephen Sondheim and Ornette Coleman.")
