FROM THE EDITOR For some reason, I’ve always been fascinated by national box-office lists — probably more for the flops than the financial successes. And this summer is racking up a huge number of flops. Take last week. I didn’t figure that the new Jeff BridgesRyan Reynolds film “R.I.P.D” would make a mint, but I figured it had the buddy-cop thing going for it, along with a “Men in Black” feel. As it turned out, the $130 million “R.I.P.D.” was dead on arrival, bringing in just $12.6 million last weekend. That
was good enough for seventh place — just behind “Pacific Rim,” which is also being considered a bomb after underperforming at the box office since being released the previous week. “Pacific Rim” might come closer to living up to its $190 million budget thanks to a stronger performance overseas than in the U.S., but there’s no doubt that other “tentpole” movies such as Will Smith’s “After Earth,” “White House Down” and “The Lone Ranger” are considered huge disappointments. “The Lone Ranger” will probably even slip into that historic list of ultimate boxoffice disasters like “Ishtar” and “Heaven’s Gate” after, so far, bringing in just $81 million — about $134 million less than its budget.
Then there’s “The Conjuring.” Released last week, the horror film cost just $20 million to make but quietly raked in $41 million at the box office. I would like to say that I’m smarter than movie-studio executives and would be able to sniff out the potential flops while green-lighting the box-office champs — but I’m not. Making multi-million decisions like that would come with a huge amount of pressure, and I have to admit, when I first saw the commercials for two of the most successful movies of all time, well, I figured neither one of them was going to much more than break even. Those two films? “Home Alone” and “Titanic.” — Jeff Hunter

of Cache Valley” opening July 22 in the Tippetts Exhibit Hall of the Chase Fine Arts Center at Utah State University. “This exhibition allows the faculty, staff and students of USU to see work by some of the many strong visual artists living and working in Cache Valley,” said Laura Gelfand, head of the Department of Art and Design. “This also creates an opportunity for these artists to connect with Utah State and the department in a new way.” The exhibit features the work of local artists, including Joe Alleman, Michael Bingham, Colleen Howe Bleinberg, Heather Campbell, Jerry Fuhriman, Kristi Grussendorf, Mike Malm, Jim Morgan and Debra Teare. “There’s going to be some neat work exhibited knowing the range of talent and who some of the other artists are,” said Alleman, who graduated from USU in 2000 with a bachelor of fine arts degree. “I think it’s neat to have a chance to do something with the strong local talent that is here.” Each artist has submitted three to five works for display, ranging from oil and watercolor paintings to mixed media, three-dimensional wall hangings and sculptures. Gelfand is the juror for the show and will choose an artwork to receive an award to be presented by Craig Jessop, dean of the CCA, at a reception at 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9. The “Artists of Cache Valley” exhibit can be seen through Aug. 23 in the Tippetts Exhibit Hall, open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Both the exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public.

Blanchett is luminous in Allen’s ‘Jasmine’
Jocelyn Noveck AP National Writer
Diane Keaton. Mia Farrow. Dianne Wiest. Scarlett Johansson. Penelope Cruz. To the long list of actresses who’ve thrived in Woody Allen films, it’s now time to add Cate Blanchett. And in big, capital letters, because her spectacularly wrenching performance in Allen’s latest, “Blue Jasmine,” lives up to every bit of hype you may have heard. As his fans well know, Allen, 77, keeps up the incredible pace of about a film a year, and had lately been focusing on frothy comedic fare — the whimsical hit “Midnight in Paris,” and the less successful “From Rome with Love.” “Blue Jasmine,” surely one of his meatiest films in years, finds him in different territory,

both geographically — we’re back on U.S. shores — and emotionally, addressing serious issues like the Bernard Madoff financial scandal and its social ramifications. It’s also a fascinating character study of a woman trying
to keep her head above water, financially and mentally, and as such, it’s a clear homage to Tennessee Williams’ “A Streetcar Named Desire” and his tragically unstable Blanche DuBois. Some might quibble with how much Allen
borrows, thematically, from that play. But in such expert and loving hands, do we really care? And who better than Blanchett, who played such a searing Blanche onstage several years ago, to bring a 21st-century version of the character to life on the big screen? Blanche, as reimagined here by Allen, is Jasmine, an upper-crust Manhattan
‘R.I.P.D.’ suffers quick box-office death SAN DIEGO (AP) — Moviegoers were ready for a fright this weekend, sending “The Conjuring” into first place at the box office, while “R.I.P.D.” became the summer’s latest bigbudget action film to bite the dust.
“The Conjuring,” a haunted-house thriller from Warner Bros., debuted with $41.5 million in North American ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday. Starring Vera Farmiga, Lili Taylor, Patrick Wilson and Ron Livingston,
“The Conjuring” unseated tempting moviegoers this weekend. The newest two-week box-office champ “Despicable Me 2,” animated offering, Fox’s which dropped to second “Turbo,” opened with $21.5 million, good for place with $25 million. “The Conjuring” was See DEATH on Page 11 among four new releases

socialite whose life has gone seriously wrong. Jasmine had been living, you see, on Park Avenue — and shopping on Madison — as the pampered wife of high-flying investment broker Hal (Alec Baldwin, perfect in this smarmy, Madoff-inspired role.) But it’s all fallen apart, in spectacular Madoff style, and Jasmine is now flat broke. She flies to San Francisco — in first class and carrying Vuitton luggage, because some habits are hard to break — to move in with sister Ginger. Ginger was adopted from a different set of biological parents, which helps to explain why she’s everything Jasmine is not. A divorced mom of two boys, she works bagging groceries and dates an auto mechanic named Chili. The guy is gruff, temperamental, See JASMINE on Page 13
The Reel Place Aaron Peck
The superhero train keeps chugging along as the summer of 2013 inches toward the finish line. “The Wolverine” has an almost impossible task in front of it: to make us forget how terrible “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” was. That’s a tall order. While the first stand-alone Wolverine movie was nowhere near the travesty of “X-Men: The Last Stand,” it was clear that the franchise wasn’t headed in the right direction. “X-Men: First Class” righted the ship, but all it did was flesh out more origin tales for well-known characters. “The Wolverine” brings us back to the present and continues on from, well … one of the other “X-Men” movies. Take your pick. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) has gone recluse again. He’s having awful dreams night after night. Specifically, he has lifelike nightmares about Aug. 9, 1945, the fateful day when the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. Wolverine — at that time known only as Logan — was there that day. As a prisoner he saved one of his captors from the bombing. Even with nuclear death raining down on him, Logan’s healing abilities proved too much for the reaper. The man he saved will one day become the richest man in Japan. Flash forward to the present. The man is dying, but Wolverine still looks the same. The man, Yashida (Hal Yamanouchi) feels he owes Logan something, so he hunts him down, brings him to Japan and explains
that the action only feels like real action when the screenplay pauses for a bit and lets us digest the lifeand-death stakes these characters find themselves in. Like so many comic book movies, “The Wolverine” has a hard time trying to figure out how to end its story (although the after-credit scene is definitely worth staying for). It sort of builds and builds and then fizzles out at the end. The creatively produced action scenes in the middle of the movie outshined anything thought up for the movie’s ultimate climax. Though, while I find myself superhero’d out at the moment, “The Wolverine” isn’t the worst comic-based blockbuster to hit theaters this summer. It’s a decent, if at times a tad underwhelming, entry into the everexpanding, seeminglynever-ending, Marvel universe.

Now is the time to embrace the return of the Twinkie and catch up to Mexico America is slipping. Two weeks ago a report was released revealing that we had plummeted to No. 2 in the world obesity rankings. We were toppled by our southern neighbors, Mexico. Where is our national pride? Where is the outrage over Mexicans ruining everything that we hold near and dear? This is worse than losing to the Russians in basketball. But regaining the title will be as sweet as beating the Russians in hockey, but as difficult as getting the Russians to surrender Edward Snowden. I know it is going to be hard to hate Mexico as much as Russia, but we can do it. I accuse Mexico of espionage and a rigorous non-training program. Those undocumented workers that we have been sending back to their homeland took with them our secrets of rapid weight gain. As a nation, our first step should be to immediately implement emergency unausterity measures under the leadership of the Office of Homeland Obesity. Just like reinstating the wartime draft, word out this week is that a new patriotic company is reinstating the Twinkie and other formerHostess snacks of mass production to bolster

How America can regain the top spot
our chances of winning this war. These yummy treats with a shelf life of six years should be hitting the selves next week. McDonald’s has started listing the calorie count of all items on their menus so that citizens can make the right choices to help the nation regain its crown of corpulence. Supersize will be the default order on all purchases. Further action or, more importantly, inaction is required on your part: 1. Stop walking, even around the office. If you have a rolling desk chair, just push yourself around in it until quitting time. If you do outdoor work, lean on your tools and take frequent naps. 2. Take the elevator even if it is only for one floor; every little bit counts. Use the handicapped buttons on doors even if you are not handicapped. The government has issued a moratorium on citations for using these buttons or unused
handicapped parking stalls. 3. Light beer and diet soda has been banned at all stadiums, airports and government buildings. 4. Ride a bike, but only if it will reduce the amount you have to walk, and never pedal going downhill. Use electric bikes or scooters whenever possible. 5. Only buy food from vending machines and the selves closest to the grocery store checkout line. 6. Eat fruits and vegetables only if fried or covered with cheese or chocolate — preferably all three. This will be easier if you spend your meal times at county and state fairs. 7. Use the drive-up window for everything, even if it takes extra trips. Remember to get in some extra snacking time while the car is idling in line. 8. Cancel gym memberships immediately unless you agree to only use them for tanning and the juice bars. 9. People caught running for any reason other than to escape a fire will be issued a warning for the first infraction. Upon subsequent violations, perpetrators will face house arrest and be fitted with ankle bracelet motion detectors ———

Acting great, effects lacking in ‘Woman in Black’
idly shift from one role to another. But superb acting alone cannot make “The Woman in Black” a winner. The theatrical magic that has made audiences jump and scream throughout more successful performances of this play requires a flawless blend of technical effects that are difficult to conjure up.

This season’s small cast offering by the Old Lyric Repertory Company is “The Woman in Black,” an eerie ghost story that has been running for decades in the West End theater district of London. The plot of “The Woman in Black” cannot be briefly summarized; nor would it be fair to reveal any of this would-be shocker’s surprises. “The Woman in Black” is staged as a play within a play that requires two actors to portray seven separate characters with minimal scenery, costumes and makeup, while off-stage tech wizards orchestrate thrills and chills for the audience. Needless to say, the artistic risk that director Adrianne Moore has undertaken here is a considerable one. The performers in “The Woman in Black” are OLRC veterans Richie Call and William Grey Warren, both of whom have been seen in marvelous Old Lyric productions earlier this season. Warren plays Arthur Kipps, a London lawyer seeking to exorcize a horrific experience
— limit this otherwise promising OLRC production’s shock value to one good jolt in the middle of Act II. Repertory performances of “The Woman in Black” will continue at the Caine Lyric Theater at 28 W. Center St. through Aug. 6. ———

Books Fathers and sons struggling to connect By Ann Levin Associated Press
The ghost of J.D. Salinger hovers over David Gilbert’s new novel, “& Sons.” Set amid the wealth and privilege of Manhattan’s toniest neighborhood, the novel centers on A.N. Dyer, a reclusive author best known for his coming-of-age story set in a boys’ prep school. When the novel begins, Dyer is preparing to deliver a eulogy for his lifelong friend Charles Henry Topping at a church in the heart of the blue-blood district that Gilbert knows and writes about so well. The Dyers and the Toppings have been friends for years, send-
ing their children to the same schools and summering together in the Hamptons. St. James’ Church, the Buckley School, Exeter, Yale — Gilbert nails the taxonomy of class and wealth like a younger Tom Wolfe. But “& Sons” isn’t primarily social satire,
even though parts are hilarious. It’s about the emotional bonds between fathers, sons and brothers — the overwhelming love that can’t be adequately expressed and the burden of unspoken expectations. “It’s impossibly hard, a father’s decline,” Dyer tells Topping’s son, Philip. “You both want to say so much but you’re both so afraid of saying the same thing, something like, I hope I wasn’t a terrible disappointment.” Philip Topping is the compromised observer of the Dyer family drama. A wannabe novelist who has settled for teaching fifth grade, he’s been disloyal to his own WASPy clan by secretly yearning to be Dyer’s son. Dyer’s own three sons, meanwhile, struggle to

‘Unseen’ is an intense tale By Jeff Ayers Associated Press Karin Slaughter’s latest novel, “Unseen,” continues the tale of detective Will Trent, who has experienced more turmoil than anyone should experience in a lifetime. Will works for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. He’s working undercover on his latest case, but the violence doesn’t stay away for long. As Bill Black, Will has to stay in character or he’s a dead man. The people he runs with are drug dealers, and he wants to keep Sara, the woman he
loves, safe. But the case quickly invades Sara’s life, and Will cannot tell her the truth. When he witnesses a hit that involves Sara’s stepson, Jared, he’s able to save the life of Jared’s wife, Lena, without blowing his cover. But it might cost him any chance of a future with Sara. The theme of trust plays a key role in this intense and brutal tale. Slaughter has the ability to take the reader deep into a character’s psyche and pull away before it becomes too much to handle. The story that Slaughter weaves will not be forgotten anytime soon.
With thousands of colorful, toothpick-size fabrics, Noriko Endo of Tokyo, Japan, has captured the rapture of nature in art quilts that are on display in the Brigham City Museum of Art and History’s “2013 International Quilt Invitational Exhibition.” Works by Endo, the featured art quilter, and Helen Butler, the featured traditional quilter, are hanging in the museum through Aug. 24. The museum is located at 24 N. 300 West in Brigham City. The entrance is on the west side. Admission is free. Hours are from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, and from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday. For additional information, please phone (435) 226-1439 or visit www. brighamcitymuseum.org. Nature’s vast magnificence has gripped the imagination of Endo since childhood when she walked in the woods with her father. She

Butler recalls, “When I walked through the door of the new store and saw all those beautiful, quality fabrics, I felt like I was home.” Other artists that are showing off their command of designing, piecing, quilting and painting are Lenore Crawford, Mich.; Kaye Evans, Utah; Linda French, Ohio; Suzanne Marshall, Mo.; Kathy McNeil, Wa.; Andrea Perejda, Calif.; Sharon L.

Jasmine Continued from Page 6 unsophisticated — Stanley Kowalski, anyone? — but he and Ginger sure have chemistry. British actress Sally Hawkins is hugely touching as Ginger, and the passionate Bobby Cannavale, with a cowlick — or is it a bang? — to remember, is spoton as Chili — you can almost hear him yelling, “Ste-LLA!!” (Or, “GinGER!!”) Allen uses flashbacks to tell the story of Jasmine’s past, while in the present, she tries desperately to get back on her feet, with a dream of becoming an interior decorator. It’s hard to say which is more fascinating, Jasmine’s fictional journey or Blanchett’s dramatic journey in the film, between the two Jasmines. Look at Jasmine in her glory: her
skin virtually glows, her smile is glorious, and her ethereal, high-class beauty jumps off the screen. But when Jasmine’s down, Blanchett’s eyes are red and puffy, her skin pale and blotchy. Her posture changes. Sweat stains soak the same silk dress that once looked so smashing. As always, Allen draws strong supporting performances from all. The comic Andrew Dice Clay is an especially fun surprise as Ginger’s embittered ex, and Louis C.K. is deviously sweet as Ginger’s suitor. Peter Sarsgaard strikes the right tone as a wealthy diplomat who just might be Jasmine’s savior. Is “Blue Jasmine” an Occupy Wall Street-era morality tale, or just a deeply absorbing character study? Either way, Allen has given us a whole lot to chew on — and a flawed heroine we’ll remember for a long time.
Tune Continued from Page 3 and a bachelor’s in humanities and music. Wednesday, July 31 Trenton Chang: A sophomore at Logan High School, the 15-year-old piano virtuoso will perform several classical pieces. Chang’s parents came from Taiwan, and he was born in Minneapolis. When he was nearly five years old, he began piano lessons with Rebecca and Ralph Van der Beek. Currently, he studies with Gary Amano.
