User Rating: / 29

Ruby SparksFrom the directors of "Little Miss Sunshine" comes this intelligent, thoughtful and thoroughly delightful romantic comedy; it's written by (and co-stars) Zoe Kazan, the 29-year-old granddaughter of Elia Kazan. Struggling with writer's block and a lackluster love life, once-famous novelist Calvin (Paul Dano) creates a beautiful fictitious character named Ruby (Kazan) who inspires him. But not only does this bring his work to life -- it also brings Ruby to life -- literally! Face-to-face with an actual relationship with his once virtual girlfriend, Calvin must now decide whether to pen this love story or let it write itself. Vitals: Director: Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris. Stars: Paul Dano, Zoe Kazan, Chris Messina, Elliott Gould, Antonio Banderas, Annette Bening, Steve Coogan. 2012, CC, MPAA rating: R, 114 min., Comedy, Box office gross: $2.295 million, Fox. 4 Stars

Top Pick : The Adjustment Bureau

  • PDF
User Rating: / 60

The Adjustment BureauDo we control our destiny, or do unseen forces manipulate us? Matt Damon stars in this thriller -- based on the short story "Adjustment Team" by Philip K. Dick.-- as a man who glimpses the future Fate has planned for him and realizes he wants something else. On the brink of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate, ambitious politician David Norris (Damon) meets beautiful  ballet dancer Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt). But just as he realizes he's falling for her, mysterious men conspire to keep the two apart. David learns he is up against the agents of Fate itself -- the men of The Adjustment Bureau -- who will do everything in their considerable power to prevent David and Elise from being together. In the face of overwhelming odds, he must either let her go and accept a predetermined path ... or risk everything to defy Fate and be with her. We've never met a Philip K. Dick story, novel or big-screen adaptation we didn't like -- but if we had to pick one to anchor the bottom of our list of faves, 'The Adjustment Bureau' would be it. Director George Nolfi just can't seem to put any oomph into the proceedings, and the film can't decide if it's a sci-fi thriller, a conspiracy mystery, a love story or a religious tract -- and given the ending that accedes to a higher power, maybe even He (or She) didn't know either. This one sounds better on paper than it plays. Vitals: Director: George Nolfi. Stars: Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Terence Stamp, Anthony Mackie, John Slattery. 2011, CC, MPAA rating: PG-13, 106 min., Science Fiction, Box office gross: $60.735 million, Universal. 3 stars

Local Writer to Host Book Reading at North Delta Library

Alex SanghaCome on down to George Mackie Library this Wednesday evening as our very own columnist Alex Sangha will read from his first book entitled, "Imagine: Ideas that Challenge the Status Quo"

Imagine places ideas in society and gets readers thinking critically about their most cherished beliefs and values. The topics are vast and varied: abortion, immigration, gay rights, love, mentorship, and sustainable development. There is no right answer. We must come to our own conclusions. If we can listen and learn from each other, we can accept our differences.
