Now I feel like I am building something that is very important and valued.”

“The Book of Life” has most of the same pros and cons as “The Boxtrolls” from a couple of weeks ago. Both films are absolute joys to watch for their delightful characters, unique worlds and dazzling animation. As creative as they are in terms of presentation, neither film is all that original when it comes to storytelling. “The Book of Life” isn’t just a familiar story like “The Boxtrolls,” though. It’s also a very overstuffed and awkwardly paced one too.

The East Valley Tribune and the Ahwatukee Foothills News won several awards for advertising excellence.
And so it begins: another silly season when we will be assaulted by misleading, deceptive, out-of-context and sometimes just plain deceitful political advertising from those who believe they know what’s best for us voters!

People speak about autism as if it were the embodiment of hopelessness. It’s a disorder marked by lacking — a lack of social awareness, a lack of communication skills from an early age, a lack of understanding of emotions — and one that doesn’t have a cure. It’s treated and discussed as if it were a death sentence for life.
I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for the original 1968 Planet of the Apes film, but the new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is not only the best out of the eight films in the Apes franchise, it’s the best movie I’ve seen this year and one of the most exciting, thought-provoking and entertaining films ever made. This movie is jaw-dropping astounding from start to finish and is a simian spectacular of the highest order.

One of the funniest quirks Gilbert resident Marieke Davis possesses is her interest in the arts. It’s not because of her artistic talent — a recent win in a national poster contest proves she has skill — but from the way she expresses herself artistically.
Things are always worse the second time around, the deputy police chief warns the buddy-cop team of Jenko and Schmidt in "22 Jump Street."
Mesa artist Jim Gardner has been successfully supporting himself with his art for decades, but he doesn’t think of it as a job. It doesn’t have a pension or benefits, and there is no guarantee of job security.

The Arizona State University Art Museum is debuting some pretty big new works this summer.
It’s always been my personal opinion that Walt Disney’s 1959 “Sleeping Beauty” should have been titled, “Maleficent.” After all, she gets more screen time than Princess Aurora, she’s a more interesting character, and she’s the one you want to dress up as for Halloween. So why does Sleeping Blandness get the title role? It’s nice to see Maleficent finally get top billing in a movie after all these years, even if the movie itself is only so-so.
No one can blame Gareth Edwards for admittedly feeling nervous when asked to helm a remake of the biggest monster movie of all time. Sure, the only other film he had directed happened to be 2010's "Monsters." But this time, it was Godzilla.

Every year in the spring, Tempe arts school New School for the Arts & Academics (NSAA) throws a big event to raise money for the school. The students showcase their talents through various types of performances such as dance, drama, and music and their visual art skills by selling various items they’ve made such as pottery, buttons, bobble-heads, etc. In addition to this marvelous display of talents, the students and faculty run activities like this year’s dunk tank, carnival games, and a rather impressive raffle. These kids have some serious talent!
