LOS ANGELES — In a world of on-demand video and movies shrunken to the size of smartphone screens, home-entertainment releases need something special to stand out. The following box sets offer more than movies for every cinephile on your holiday list.
Mike Sproul isn’t defined by one title.
NEW YORK — Today's travelers want to be comfortable, organized and connected. With those themes in mind, here are some gift ideas, starting with suggestions from three folks who travel for a living.
A considerable upgrade over the first "Hunger Games" movie, "Catching Fire" comes across more like a remake than a sequel.
Step right up and meet the man who, some say, is the greatest man in American history — George Washington.

Originally from Virginia, Fairfax lives and breathes Washington and will transport you through time to a place where the General is the most respected man in the country.

An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, "Ender's Game" frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy ant-like aliens, called Formics, in which Earth's fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven't even hit puberty yet. At face value, the film presents an electrifying star-wars scenario — that rare case where an epic space battle transpires entirely within the span of two hours — while at the same time managing to deliver a higher pedagogical message about tolerance, empathy and coping under pressure. Against considerable odds, this risky-sounding Orson Scott Card adaptation actually works, as director Gavin Hood pulls off the sort of teen-targeted franchise starter Summit was hoping for.
Ripped from headlines that still feel wet, "The Fifth Estate" dramatizes the fast, controversial rise of anonymous-whistleblower website WikiLeaks and its figurehead, Julian Assange.
If you saw Paul Greengrass's "United 93," a terrifying depiction of one of the doomed flights on 9/11, you know this director can evoke a harrowing, real-life event like few others. In fact, you may not have recovered yet from the experience.
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.
An East Valley education center will open up its new location in Chandler with a celebratory event on Oct. 12.
The Chandler-Hamilton game went as this rivalry tends to go for 47 1/2 minutes on Friday night.
A story like that at the heart of "Runner Runner," about a young American gambler who gets sucked way above his head into the criminal doings of a big-time offshore operator, would have found its ideal life as a tough, punchy, black-and-white programmer back in the 1950s. Today, it would have been most viable as a grandiose character study done on an operatic scale by a filmmaker like Martin Scorsese or Michael Mann. What's actually up onscreen in this vaguely ambitious but tawdry melodrama falls into an in-between no man's land that endows it with no distinction whatsoever, a work lacking both style and insight into the netherworld it seeks to reveal. Despite an intriguing setup and Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake heading the cast, this Fox release holds a losing box-office hand.
“The response column was most definitely more racist than original column. The most offensive part was that those four men claimed to know everything about Linda’s world, while accusing her of being unable to know anything about their world.”
Sometimes it only takes one type of play.
Three Mesa residents were honored Thursday by the fire department and hailed as heroes, each one credited with potentially saving the life of another.
“Thinking of buying trip cancellation insurance next time you book an airline flight? DON’T BOTHER! Save your money! They have no intention of honoring their side of the deal.”
“I see the ‘mature’ students at CUNY are harassing a true American hero, General Petraeus. Typical of a young Democrat though. If you don’t have a truly mature intellectual argument you throw a temper tantrum.”
Patriotic music, inspirational messages, the flag flown at half mast and a moment of silence were all part of a stirring 9/11 Memorial Tribute help in Gilbert Wednesday morning.
A pair of local organizations will host a special dinner on Sept. 14 to raise money for the family of a deceased member of the Granite Mountain Hotshots.
