RICHMOND, Va. — Fall is a fine time to sample a wide variety of craft beers, because no matter what your autumnal activity there is likely to be a seasonal beer to make it better.

Typically whenever a movie succumbs to the redundant car chase, it means that the screenwriter officially ran out of story to tell. It’s clear that the people behind “Getaway” never had any story to start with, as the entire film plays out like an extended car chase from its opening scene to its ridiculous ending.
PHOENIX — Arizona lawmakers cannot give their residents the right to make their own guns and bullets without federal approval, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Friday.
Walking past via the breezeway outside, you might poke your head in, scan the room briefly, and decide to move on — but, oh, the things you would miss. Like, say, Abraham Lincoln’s original signature. Or two lead bullets that collided in air during a volley between Union and Confederate soldiers at Gettysburg. The items are part of “Documenting War: The Kinnaman Collection,” an exhibition on display at Gilbert Historical Museum. Though it takes up just a single room (and a waist-high case in a hallway), it packs a punch.
Kinnaman’s Civil War display is compact but comprehensive. There’s the Lincoln signature, serving as postage in the upper-right corner of an envelope. Those bullets that sailed into a head-on collision. A dull-looking serrated saw used in field-hospital amputations. Binoculars and a signal lantern. A .44-caliber revolver and several diminuitive boot pistols. [More on next slide ...]
But amid the helmets, medals, buttons, bullets and swords what may be most novel is Kinnaman’s Civil War memorabilia. Artifacts from the era aren’t something you see an abundance of in Arizona, where statehood wasn’t reached until almost 50 years after the war between North and South ended.
“The closest thing is probably the Indian War museum (Fort Verde State Historic Park) up at Camp Verde, at Fort Verde, because most of those guys were veterans of the Civil War, and there was a lot of overlap of equipment and uniforms,” says Kinnaman. “The national guard has an Arizona Military Museum, and there are a handful of Civil War items there.” [More on next slide ...]

Never been a heavy metal fan? The new look of brass, copper, bronze and nickel in this fall's decor might change your mind.
"2 Guns"? Please. There are enough guns in this movie to arm a small country. Maybe a medium-sized one.
Don't get us wrong. We don't mean to take anything away from the more substantial qualities of "The Wolverine," a fairly satisfying if not stellar installment in the saga of the famous mutant that Hugh Jackman's been playing since, wow, 2000. (For a little perspective, Bill Clinton was still president.)
A guide to movies from a family perspective:
WASHINGTON — Several times every day, at airports across the country, passengers are trying to walk through security with loaded guns in their carry-on bags, purses or pockets, even in a boot. And, nearly a dozen years after 9/11, it's happening a lot more often.
This handout photo provided by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), taken in April 2013 at Indianapolis International Airport, shows a gun among personal belongings that was confiscated in a carry-on bag at the airport. _ Several times every day, at airports across the country, passengers try to walk through security screening with loaded guns in carry-on bags, a purse, a pocket, even a boot. And, nearly a dozen years after 9/11, it’s happening a lot more often. In the first six months of this year, Transportation Security Administration screeners found 894 guns on passengers or in their carry-on bags, a 30 percent increase over the same period last year. The TSA set a record in May for the most guns seized in one week _ 65 in all, 45 of them loaded and 15 with bullets in their chambers and ready to be fired. That was 30 percent more than the previous record of 50 guns, set just two weeks earlier. (AP Photo/TSA)
There's a limit, it turns out, to how much Johnny Depp and a bucket of makeup can accomplish.
SEATTLE — For the activists who led the effort to legalize recreational marijuana in Washington state last fall, Jamen Shively was one of their biggest fears: an aspiring pot profiteer whose unabashed dreams of building a cannabis empire might attract unwanted attention from the federal government or a backlash that could slow the marijuana reform movement across the country.
By the time a client parks their car and walks up to the front doors of Harvest of Tempe, the southeast Valley’s only medical marijuana dispensary, he or she, their license plate, and their car have all been caught on camera.
A Tempe attorney accused of shooting and wounding his girlfriend’s former boyfriend has entered a plea of not guilty.
A prosecutor on Thursday portrayed Jodi Arias as a manipulative liar who stalked her ex-boyfriend and killed him in grisly fashion before courting the media spotlight in her sensational murder case.
“Finally, honesty from the gun control crowd. Their endgame is confiscation of guns which will have to include elimination of the 2nd amendment.”
Early in the sleek sci-fi thriller "Oblivion," Tom Cruise, as a flyboy repairman living a removed, Jetsons-like existence above an invaded and deserted Earth, intones his home sickness.
The night of the shooting in Aurora, Colo., Ahwatukee Foothills mom and lawyer Ellen Davis had enough.
ALBANY, N.Y. —
If a big, dumb action movie knows it's a big, dumb action movie and revels in that fact, is that preferable to a big, dumb action movie making the mistake of thinking it's significant, relevant art?
That's the question to ponder — if you can think straight and your ears aren't ringing too badly — during "G.I. Joe: Retaliation." This sequel of sorts to the 2009 blockbuster "G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra" seems to have some cheeky fun with itself, from Bruce Willis cheerily revealing the arsenal he's hiding in his quiet suburban home to RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan essentially showing up and playing himself. A major city is obliterated with the touch of a button and several others are in peril as the world hinges on nuclear destruction in what amounts to a hammy game of chicken.
Nothing matters really. This is a movie based on a Hasbro toy, after all — it's all spectacle and bombast. But at least "G.I. Joe" is aware of its vapidity compared to, say, last week's "Olympus Has Fallen," in which North Korean terrorists took over the White House in self-serious fashion but our secret-service-agent hero found time to make wedged-in, smart-alecky quips on the way to saving the day.
That's not to say that this "G.I. Joe" is good, aside from a couple of dazzling action set pieces, but at least it's efficient in its muscular mindlessness.
The elite military team of Joes, now led by Duke (Channing Tatum, returning from the first film), is sent to Pakistan to recover some nuclear weapons. But they find themselves double-crossed by their own government, led by an imposter president, and lose many among their ranks in a massive ambush. The survivors — Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson, reliable as ever), Flint (D.J. Cotrona, who's given no personality) and Lady Jaye (Adrianne Palicki, in full makeup for covert ops) — must find out who's running the country and get to the bottom of this villain's dastardly plan.
Turns out it's master of disguise Zartan, part of the enemy group Cobra, who's posing as the president while the real commander in chief is locked up in a bomb shelter. (Jonathan Pryce plays both roles; he's far too qualified for even one of them.) The three Joes realize they need help to bring him down, so they round up the far-flung Snake Eyes (Ray Park), the petite warrior Jinx (Elodie Yung, whose character trains with the Blind Master, RZA) and the reluctant Storm Shadow (Korean superstar Byung-hun Lee, an athletic and elegant specimen).
They also need some firepower, so they track down Willis' Original Joe, Gen. Colton, who provides his own personal gun show. (You'd never know there's a gun control debate in this country from watching this movie; it's all very macho and rah-rah. The flip side is, none of the casualties from all this sophisticated weaponry results in any blood. This is an astonishingly violent PG-13 movie.)
"Retaliation" initially was scheduled to come out last summer, but the studio pulled it and delayed its release to convert the movie to 3-D. With a director like Jon M. Chu, who's shown a flair for integrating 3-D with the dance extravaganza "Step Up 3D" and the concert film "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," why not just shoot it that way in the first place? As it stands now, the extra dimension doesn't add much, and often is used in that simplistic, tried-and-true way of flinging things at us from the screen: bullets, throwing stars, etc.
There is one absolutely astounding extended sequence about halfway through, in which two teams of ninjas face off in a battle on the sheer cliff faces of the Himalayas. Using cables and zip lines, it's as if they're running, leaping and practically dancing on walls in the sky — a breathtaking piece of choreography in its own right, regardless of the dimension through which it's viewed.
"G.I. Joe Retaliation," a Paramount Pictures release, is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of combat violence and martial arts action throughout, and for brief sensuality. Running time: 110 minutes. Two stars out of four.
