Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" is a sequel based on an end-credits joke from a film that was itself based on a joke trailer contained within a half-joke grindhouse homage. Exactly how many degrees such an endeavor is removed from anything resembling serious cinema would require Jean Baudrillard to calculate, yet for more immediate filmgoing purposes, all there is to see here is a surprisingly long-lived gag finally running out of gas. As violent as its predecessor yet noticeably duller and less outrageous, "Machete Kills" is dragged to the finish line entirely by its director's madcap energy and an absurd cast of major stars in strange cameos.

I came close to dying three times last week. Driving straight east on Baseline Road, I had a full green light. The oncoming car, stopped in the left-turn lane, suddenly jumped forward trying to turn left in front of me. I missed her by skinny inches.

We race into the 2012 homestretch following a record-breaking Thanksgiving weekend, where blockbuster franchises like “Twilight” and James Bond weren’t the only ones to do gangbuster business.

Recently I saw the film The Iron Lady in which (a brilliant) Meryl Streep portrays the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The movie provided us with three magnificent portrayals of life. A simply outstanding performance by Ms. Streep, who won a Golden Globe for her performance, a portrait of vignettes that depict Ms. Thatcher’s rise to the position as Britain’s Prime Minister, a position she held from 1979 to 1990, longer than any other British PM, and last, but not least, it exposed the reality that even the Iron Lady has no immunity against such a deadly disease, from which there is no escape, and for which no cure currently exists.
