Poet Laureate to speak in Jacksonville Betsy Ross’ life (although it had its problems) just goes to show how a woman with a good yarn can make history. So writes Alabama Poet Laureate Dr. Sue Brannan Walker in her poem “Three Husbands, A Needle and Thread.” The poem is from her collection “She Said,” in which Walker centers on historical women and captures a slice of their life in brief capsules. “Betsy ‘sewed’ and so she Hervey reaped,” Folsom Walker Artists in Action summed up the flagmaker’s life in a telephone interview this week, adding that Ross, who was a wife, breadwinner and grandmother in her day, still deserves accolades. With an approach like this to history and verse, the writer’s time with an audience next Thursday evening at Houston Cole Library should be entertaining and fun. The Friends of Houston Cole Library will feature Walker as the organization’s guest writer at 7 p.m. on the library’s 11th floor. The event is free and open to the public. As the state’s official poet, Walker serves as an ambas-

Special to The Star

Dr. Sue Brannan Walker, Alabama Poet Laureate, will read some of her poetry at the Houston Cole Library March 15 at 7 p.m. sador for poetry in Alabama; she conducts workshops and speaks to groups and classrooms throughout the state. The Mobile writer’s finished work “Whatever Remembers: An Anthology of Alabama Poetry” is one of several contributions she has brought to her place of eminence in poetry. Her work also includes eight published books of poetry. Walker is professor of English at the University of South Alabama where she teaches courses

in creative writing. She is vice president of the Alabama Writer’s Conclave, the letters chairperson for the National League of American Pen Women and is on the board of the Alabama Writer’s Forum. A critical book “James Dickey and the Environment” is forthcoming with Mellen Press, she said. Dickey was an American poet and novelist born in the Atlanta area. Walker’s poetry is vital and deeply human, and often laced with humor. “Gliderman,” which she will read Thursday, is a letter of appreciation to her late grandfather Lewis Webster Brennan, who “would be there always, swinging in his glider, waiting for me,” she wrote. It was her first published poem. She will also read other poems from her collection. Walker also won the Alabama Writer’s Conclave Play-Writing competition for her one-woman play based on the life of Mobile’s 19th century socialite and writer, Madame Octavia LeVert, granddaughter of George Walton, the Georgia signer of the Declaration of Independence. Dr. Joanne Gates, professor of English at Jacksonville State University, has heard Walker read her poetry on two occasions. “I am impressed with Sue Walker’s poetry,” Gates said. “She encourages student poets with very clever exercises and gives great inspiration to others in the way she composes a poem about

everyday circumstances.” What it’s like to sit in a dentist’s chair is an example of her verse on routine happenings, Dr. Gates said. The poet’s verse that imagines a friendship with American novelist Carson McCullers is in a more serious vein. Walker’s books will be available for purchase and signing Thursday evening. Refreshments will be served.

CAST Kidz Drama “The Trial of Mother Goose,” a play with familiar characters will be presented at 5 p.m. Sunday, March 11, at McClellan Theatre. Seventeen children ranging from ages 4-17 will deliver the story of Mother Goose and her desperate problem: She is accused of bringing harm to the characters in her stories so she can gain profit and fame from the retelling of their tale. Finally, the characters become more sympathetic and plead her case, but in the end, Ole King Cole makes the judgment call. Not only have the CAST Kidz learned how to act out roles such as Little Miss Muffet, a soldier, a cook, a queen, and Felix, Freddy and Fritz, known as the Three Fiddlers, they have allso written original rap songs for the show and assembled their costumes. The play is directed by Kim Dobbs. There is no admittance fee. A $5 donation to CAST Kidz is suggested, but not required.

guys to one girl, how do you hold your own? I may be short, but I definitely hold my own! I love the boys. Of course, we mess around here and there, but we work very well together. It just seems to work effortlessly. [The group] was thrown together pretty quickly. We just tried having a rehearsal together — 25 minutes later, when we’d already completed 3 songs, we decided that it’d be a great idea to collaborate. If you weren’t singing, what would you be doing? I honestly can’t imagine myself doing anything else! I’ve always been fascinated with sea life, so I would say marine biology, but I’m a big pansy! I could never go that far out and deep into the ocean. Maybe I’d make a good news anchor! What’s your favorite part about performing on stage? The adrenaline. The way you can pull an audience in. It’s so exhilarating! It never gets old. I always warm up my voice and plan out the night to an extent, but at the same time I like for it to be a spontaneous experience.

‘Downton Abbey’s’ Dan Stevens gets another period project By Hilary Fox and Louise Dixon Associated Press

LONDON — “Downton Abbey” star Dan Stevens has been spending twice as much time in the past. Along with shooting the third season of the 1920s-set Golden-Globe-winning TV show, he’s been filming and executive producing another period project in London, playing one side of an Edwardian love triangle in

the movie, “Summer in February.” The tight schedule means Stevens is the stevens earnest Matthew Crawley amid the upper crust of Downtown Abbey one day — then a 1913 land agent who finds himself in

a community of unconventional artists the next. “It’s been a bit of a headache, but fortunately they’re not too far apart in terms of period, which is one good thing,” Stevens told The Associated Press on the set of his new film in Twickenham, outside London. Jumping between two sets is not something he’d do again, but “Summer in February” is a a passion project for the 29-year-old. The film is based on

a book by a teacher from his old school, Jonathan Smith, who also adapted the screenplay, and they had been talking about the project since the actor was a teenager. “The book came out around the time that I met him and he always joked that if it got made into a film or TV show, that I’d make a good Gilbert,” he said. Based on a true story, Stevens’ character is Gilbert Evans, a land agent for

the Lamorna Valley estate in England’s picturesque, southwestern county of Cornwall, which has become home to a group of artists. Australian actress Emily Browning plays the object of his affection, Florence Carter-Wood, and Dominic Cooper is Evans’ charismatic competition, A.J., who would go on to fame as artist Sir Alfred Munnings, one of England’s best painters of rural scenes.

“These artist colonies at this time, the early 20th century, were strange little places really,” Stevens said. “People dressed in period clothing, but often wearing them in quite unusual ways and behaving, not necessarily according to how people might ordinarily have behaved.” “That’s been quite fun to explore, it’s not a conventional period drama in that sense, it’s more a love story,” he adds.

“Game Change,” co-starring Woody Harrelson and Ed Harris, actually strives for a balanced portrait, showing Palin overwhelmed at times after being thrust onto the presidential ticket and lashing out at some McCain aides but connecting with audiences and performing on big stages better than many critics and supporters expected. “The Undefeated” focuses first on Palin’s life as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, as that state’s governor and on the 1998 campaign. The writer and director of “Game Change” both wel-

comed “The Undefeated” onto TV. Writer Danny Strong said he was happy for Bannon: “It’s hard for a documentary to get any kind of play. I’m not concerned at all about comparisons to our piece. I just think it’s another story, another element of her life.” Director Jay Roach said that any time a film can add to the conversation it’s good. “I’m happy that the two films might stir it up a little bit,” he said. Since ReelzChannel announced last month that it would air “The Undefeated,” Hubbard said he’s got-

ten about an equal number of letters from people thanking him for the decision or saying they’d never watch ReelzChannel again. “When you say ‘Sarah Palin,’ nobody sort of shrugs,” he said. “Everybody loves her or hates her. There’s no middle ground. She’s so relevant because she’s so intriguing.” He said he would not have sought out “The Undefeated” if Palin were seeking the presidency now, because then the argument that showing it was a political statement would carry more water.

Hubbard said. Hubbard said he found the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate a fascinating figure, but he wasn’t trying to lionize her. “If HBO wanted to swap movies this weekend, I’d do that in a second,” he said. Palin supporters have attacked “Game Change,” although it’s unclear whether any of them has seen it in advance. “The Undefeated” maker Bannon called it a “fictionalized hit-piece” and has praised ReelzChannel’s “courageous” decision to air his movie.

At SXSW media zoo, convergence is annual buzz word By Jake Coyle Associated Press

NEW YORK — Increasingly, the media zoo that is SXSW looks more like today’s overlapping media world. The annual South by Southwest Conference and Festival, which begins today, gathers thousands of creators, performers, media and industry members for 10 days onto the boozy downtown streets of Austin, Texas. It’s really three festivals — Interactive, Film and Music — in one, but each bleeds into the other. The annual buzz word at SXSW is always convergence. Just as the tech and entertainment worlds physically descend onto Austin, media forms, too, are diverging. Many of those technologies and companies that might be found at SXSW Interactive have greatly altered those at SXSW Film (video-ondemand, Netflix, Hulu) and at SXSW Music (Apple, Spotify, Pandora). It’s a place where the question is always “what’s next” and one has the impression of meandering hordes traipsing the streets of Austin searching for answers to a confusing and ever-evolving media landscape. There will be hundreds of panel discussions, countless predictions and even man vs. machine competitions that pit algorithms against curators. “It’s like stepping into a temporary world for one week where you’re maybe two or three or five years in the future,” says Amber Case, who’ll be making her fourth trip to SXSW as a keynote speaker for Interactive. She’s a “cyborg anthropologist” who studies the relationship between humans and machines, and founded the location-sharing platform Geoloqi.com. Each realm of SXSW will have its own superstars. None will be bigger than Bruce Springsteen, this year’s music keynote speaker. (NPR Music and SXSW.com will live stream the event.) Interactive, though, will have its own rock stars, including Napster cofounder Sean Parker (famously

for the growth, but the general reason that encapsulates it all is the growth of social media and social networks.” That’s been partly driven by the success some start-ups have found at SXSW. In 2007, a little thing called Twitter broke out from the pack in Austin, and two years later, Foursquare was also effectively launched into a nationally known location-based social networking site. This year, SXSW is premiering a new Start-up Village that will gather young companies looking for the SXSW-bump — a goal not unlike those of thousands of bands that come to Austin, seeking hype. One of the buzzedabout start-ups coming to this year’s SXSW is Pinterest, a pinboard-style sharing site whose founder, Ben Silbermann, will be speaking. One heavyweight, though, is expected to suck up much of the Austin air: Apple. Its new Matt Sayles/Associated Press file iPad, announced Wednesday, Bruce Springsteen performs during the 54th annual Grammy will surely be a major topic of Awards in Los Angeles Feb. 12, 2012. Springsteen will perform conversation, both among those at the annual South by Southwest Conference and Festival in looking to purchase one and for app-makers scrambling to adapt Austin, Texas. to it.

Subcultures since 1987 and has historically active. “There’s lots of reasons are interesting to us. The inter-

section of film, music and interactivity is always interesting to us. In terms of documentaries, we definitely skew cultural rather than saving the world.” This year’s slate of 132 feature films will include genre entertainment like “The Cabin in the Woods,” a horror film co-written by Whedon, and the comic remake “21 Jump Street.” The cross-pollination with digital life will also be on screen in films like “We Are Legion,” a documentary about hacker-activists, and “Wikileaks: Secret & Lies,” a documentary about the document-leaking website. Writer-director Bob Byington is a resident of Austin’s thriving filmmaking scene that prides itself as a Hollywood alternative. While he would typically be fleeing the city during the mob rush of SXSW, he’ll be staying this year to showcase his comedy “Somebody Up There Likes Me,” starring Nick Offerman of NBC’s “Parks & Recreation.” Finding distribution for an indie film like “Somebody Up There Likes Me” has become harder in recent years, but — for better or worse — such concrete results often take a back seat to promotion, networking and buzz-gathering at SXSW. Byington has, like many, found himself trying to keep expectations for tangible results (like selling his film) in check amid the mob scene. “You do tend to get selfabsorbed and you feel like you need to take every opportunity you have to market your own film,” he says. “I’d sort of like to have an attitude this year of just remembering the other films and the other filmmakers are there. That seems to be where more pleasure is possible.”

Springsteen’s anger channeled in new album By David Bauder Associated Press

Bruce Springsteen, “Wrecking Ball” (Columbia) Nearly three decades ago, Bruce Springsteen wrote with sadness about a man showing his young son a hometown ravaged by outside economic forces, a town the family was about to leave. He’s not sad now. He’s angry, mighty angry. On the new song, “Death to My Hometown,” he wants to “send the robber barons straight to hell, the greedy thieves who came around and ate the flesh of everything they found, whose crimes have gone unpunished now, who walk the streets as free men now.” With economic injustice, Springsteen’s powerful new disc has a subject he can sink his teeth into, and

Morgan revels in regular guy role By Michael Mccall Associated Press

Craig Morgan, “This Ole Boy” (Black River) At a time when country music’s pop leanings have fans questioning the genre’s elasticity, Craig Morgan leaves no doubt about what he sings. For 12 years, Morgan has filled albums with imagery of the rural south, with hits such as “Redneck Yacht Club” and “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” helping set a predominant country music trend toward upbeat songs about family, home, pickup trucks, and old-fashioned values. As the title “This Ole Boy” suggests, Morgan’s latest album keeps his working boots planted in farmland soil. The title song, a current country radio hit, establishes Morgan’s point-of-view: He’s a regular guy who couldn’t be happier about the life he leads.

Fortunately, Morgan and longtime co-producer and co-writer Phil O’Donnell match his optimistic lyrics with infectious, good-time arrangements. The album only falters when Morgan, a 47-year-old father who spent more than a decade in the Army, adopts a more brazen, rocking attitude. The songs “Show Me Your Tattoo” and “Corn Star” objectify wild women in ways better left to younger performers. But when he’s suggesting modern life could use more home-cooked meals (“The Whole World Needs A Kitchen”) or recalling a youthful seduction spent on a quiet lake (“Fish Weren’t Bitin”’), Morgan exemplifies why country music continues to offer a distinctly likeable worldview. CHECK OUT THIS TRACK: The mid-tempo “Love Loves A Long Night” sways like a gentle midnight breeze as it details a couple’s sweetly romantic evening spent on a blanket under a star-lit sky.

a blunt and horrific description of how he’d like to treat those he’s worked for. The anthemic “We Take Care of Our Own” is made more important because it’s not true anymore. There have been notable failures to live up to that sentiment and, frankly, not everyone agrees with it. This is not an E Street Band record. Steve Van Zandt, Nils Lofgren, Roy Bittan and Garry Tallent are not among the 31 credited musicians. Springsteen sounds creatively energized working with new sounds and with some new people, most notably producer Ron Aniello, guitarist Tom Morello and singer Michelle Moore. Fortunately, Springsteen doesn’t leave his listeners in a ditch. A studio record-

ing of “Land of Hope and Dreams,” a track released in a live version a decade ago, is a gospel heartwarmer that masterfully calls in the memory of Curtis Mayfield. It packs an emotional wallop, too, with one of the late Clarence Clemons’ last sax solos. The albumclosing “We Are Alive” offers similar hope, too, tying together people who took stands for workers’, civil and immigration rights and paid with their lives. The title track is about the tearing down of Giants Stadium, an arena Springsteen made his own over many years, yet it provides a line that best sums up the singer’s message on this disc: “Hold tight to your anger,” he sings. “And don’t fall to your fears.”

A scene is shown from the Disney movie ‘John Carter,’ which opens today.

‘John Carter’ gets a little lost on Mars By Roger Moore McClatchy-Tribune News Service

“John Carter” is a bloated scifi epic made watchable by swell effects, passable performances and those little dashes of humor that reassure us that the filmmakers know this is all a lark — no matter what the budget. It begins as a Western, veers into sci-fi, and finally finds its footing as a blend of those, with a dash of sword and sorcery — a Confederate cavalryman slashing and hacking beasties and baddies all over the dusty, dying Red Planet in the years just after America’s Civil War. Edgar Rice Burroughs, who wrote the “John Carter of Mars” stories, appears as a character here, a young would-be writer (Daryl Sabara of “Spy Kids”) reading the journal of his late uncle (Taylor Kitsch), a swarthy, two-fisted Civil War vet searching for gold out West who stumbled instead into another Civil War

— this one a thousand years old and millions of miles away. This one’s taking place on Mars, which is where John Carter wakes up and asks, “Where the hell am I?” He’s landed in the end game of the Martian Civil War, when two cities —Helium and the mobile city of Zodanga — grinding from place to place on a gigantic crawler — are about to have their final battle. Shape shifting pandimensional beings (led by Mark Strong) have set up Zodanga (led by Dominic West) to deflate Helium (led by Ciaran Hinds). The armies are clad in gear borrowed from the ancient Romans and flit about in huge, fragile solar-powered flying galleys. There’s the scientistPrincess Dejah (Lynne Collins, who wears the obligatory alienprincess-bare-midriff look well) about to be forcibly married off to Sab Than (West) to bring peace. Unless Carter, who has swagger — and great leaping abilities on the lower gravity of Mars —

john carter HH rating: PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action Running time: 2:17 Starring: Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Mark Strong, Dominic West, Bryan Cranston intervenes. Of course, first he has to get away from the Tharks, fourarmed green nomads who stand 12 feet tall and practice a Spartan brand of warrior culture, musket-armed cavalry who admire nothing so much as a good battle. They brand each other over any offense to the community and practice infanticide. Kitsch brings a robust manliness to the part of Carter, whom we meet during his brawling / prospecting / Indian-fighting days in the Old West. He’s also got a light touch, which he’ll need in the midst of all this — um

— kitsch. The Tharks hear Carter say he’s from Virginia, and that’s how they name him — “Virginia!” Since they’re ignorant of Jeb Stuart and Robert E. Lee, Carter doesn’t care for that. The movie has the requisite sword fights and land and sea (air) battles, with the obligatory “Let them to fight in the arena” moment. “John Carter” is hampered by the staggering amount of exposition that this “introduction of the myth” installment must take care of — races, tribes, names, religions, Martian science about “The Ninth Ray.” Burroughs, who gained his greatest fame inventing “Tarzan of the Apes,” more than gets his due as a writer who envisioned a parallel world in this cinematic blend of hi-tech and retro-costuming, a world with an endless civil war, racism and religious mumbo jumbo. It’s a state-of-the-digital art 3-D film with 1930s’ “Flash Gor-

don” story elements, stuff that probably wasn’t as dated 100 years ago when Burroughs was writing his pulp fiction. A true Disney touch? Playing up the happy, helpful monster “mutt” who takes to Carter and follows him like a puppy. It’s a popcorn movie, not to be taken any more seriously than “Clash of the Titans” and its ilk. But even by those standards, “John Carter” is a bit of a slog — characters and relationships and conflicts and plot devices to keep track of, none of them worth the brain power you spend sorting them out. A more fun sorting game — trying to identify the voices behind the digitally animated aliens (Thomas Haden Church, Samantha Morton and Willem Dafoe among them). But Kitsch & Co. make the time pass pleasantly enough. Just try to forget the too-easy comparisons to “Mars Needs Moms” and “Cowboys vs. Aliens” and you’ll be fine.

March 9-15, 2012 NEW ON DVD

‘Game of Thrones’ leads new releases this week By Rick Bentley McClatchy Newspapers

This week’s new DVD releases range from a dance film remake to a brilliant premium cable series. “Footloose,” Grade B: Hollywood’s trend of cannibalizing itself continues with an updated version of the 1984 Kevin BaconLori Singer dance bonanza “Footloose.” This time it’s former “Dancing With the Stars” beauty Julianne Hough and newcomer Kenny Wormald who want to make a small Texas town footloose and fancy free. Does the world need another “Footloose?” Probably not. But, this version has just the right mix of nostalgic nod to the original and modern variation on the theme to make it fun. It won’t have you dancing in your seat like the original, but it has enough energy to get your toes tapping. “Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season,” Grade B-plus: The HBO series is filled with the trappings of a typical fantasy tale: kings, knights, dragons and mysterious creatures. But at its very dark heart, this series based on George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, is closer to a medieval version of “The Sopranos” or “Dallas” than it is to a “Lord of the Rings.” Like those series about families, feuds and fortunes, “Thrones” explores obsession with power and how it’s achieved by any means. “Like Crazy,” Grade Bplus: The movie version of falling in love generally takes a very linear emotional path. Boy meets girl, they face some contrived conflict and then live happily ever after. Anyone

Paramount Pictures via Associated Press

Julianne Hough, center, and Kenny Wormald are shown in a scene from ‘Footloose,’ released this week on DVD. who’s been in love can tell you that the path is rarely that simple. This film from director Drake Doremus shows the complications, questions and hurdles that often accompany affairs of the heart. The film — starring Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones — shows that falling in love is easy. Staying in love takes lots of work. “Immortals,” Grade Dplus: One man (Henry Cavill) can stop a king (Mickey Rourke) from taking over his country. We will never know what it’s like to live forever, but we can at least get a taste of what eternity feels like with this film. It’s not surprising the movie is so bad because this script has all the depth of a manhole cover. “Jack and Jill,” Grade F: There are more laughs in those car-wreck movies shown to driver’s education classes than in this new release. This dreck was directed by Dennis Dugan, whose credits include “Grown Ups” and “The Benchwarmers.” In his case, direction means allowing Adam Sandler to rant and rave in hopes of saying

something that is at least marginally funny, ignoring all continuity and letting scenes run on until your eyes start bleeding.

‘Silent House’ an impressive gimmick By Christy Lemire Associated Press

Let’s just get something out of the way off the top: “Silent House” creates the illusion that it’s a haunted-house thriller crafted in one long, continuous shot. The camera follows Elizabeth Olsen around a creepy, creaky lake house that’s under renovation and we’re right there with her for every bump, jump and thump of her heart. This isn’t exactly the case, and husband-and-wife directors Chris Kentis and Laura Lau acknowledge as much — they actually pieced together several long takes to create one seemingly seamless feature-length film, a process that must have required a great deal of planning, choreography, breath-holding and prayer to pull off in its own right. But once you realize that what you’re watching is a trick — albeit one that’s beautifully executed from a technical standpoint — with a final twist that’s really a gimmick, its novelty loses a bit of its luster. Still, Olsen always makes the movie watchable. She has to — she appears in nearly every single frame — and the fact that she’s dressed in a flimsy, cleavage-baring T-shirt and frequently photographed from above doesn’t hurt. Following her starmaking performance in “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” which yours truly picked as the best film of 2011, Olsen continues to reveal a startling comfort and maturity in front of the camera for someone so young and relatively inexperienced. But the film’s dexterous cinematographer, Igor Martinovic, is just as much of a star behind the lens. In this Americanized version of the Uruguayan film “La Casa Muda,” Olsen stars as Sarah, a 20something woman helping her

The place is boarded up from the inside, so it’s pitch black even in the daytime, and anyone walking around must carry a lantern or flashlight to see where they’re going. This is crucial to creating a sense of tension and fear: We all feel like we’re wandering around in the dark together. Kentis and Lau, who previ-

ously directed the strippeddown, 2004 hit thriller “Open Water,” offer an unsettling vibe from the beginning. It’s clear that something disturbing has gone on here; in particular, the conversations between Sarah and her uncle are just a bit off in tone. A long-lost friend (Julia Taylor Ross) shows up with fond memories of playing together as little girls — but strangely, Sarah can’t even place her. So it’s no shocker that Sarah

quickly comes undone in this claustrophobic setting as her paranoia escalates. It could happen to any of us, and here’s a young woman who seems a bit shaky and lost already. Still, she reacts with relatable instinctiveness as things go from bad to worse, her breath creating a rhythmic soundtrack as she scampers through hallways and up and down stairs, trying to find a way out. “Silent House” features sev-

One sequence, in which the flashes from a Polaroid camera provide a room’s only light, offers a tantalizing, mounting feeling of fear. But once the ultimate twist is revealed, you may find yourself feeling frustrated — or even disgusted — rather than frightened.

Cliff Curtis, left, stars as Dr. Sinja and Eddie Murphy stars as Jack McCall in ‘A Thousand Words.’

‘A Thousand Words,’ and none of them worth remembering By Rene Rodriguez McClatchy Newspapers

In “Tower Heist,” Eddie Murphy seems energized and pumped and poised for a comeback. In “A Thousand Words,” the actor smashes all those hopes to bits. Forget it. The dream is dead. The only reason this dumb, insulting movie won’t permanently derail Murphy’s career is that few people will ever be forced to sit through it outside of trans-Atlantic flights and interrogation rooms at Guantanamo Bay. Why has this gifted comedian repeatedly squandered his talents on such crummy pictures? Even Adam Sandler hasn’t amassed as many

bad movies as Murphy has (“Holy Man,” “The Adventures of Pluto Nash,” “The Haunted Mansion,” “Imagine That” — the list is endless). Maybe he just doesn’t read his scripts, much like his character of Jack McCall, a fast-talking literary agent who doesn’t read manuscripts. Jack just knows how to package books so they sell. The premise of “A Thousand Words” — which was written by Steve Koren, who also wrote “Jack and Jill,” so you know what you’re in for — is that Jack must learn to be a better person after a Bodhi tree sprouts in his back yard and loses a leaf with every word he says. When the tree’s branch-

es are bare, Jack will keel over dead. “A Thousand Words” was directed by Brian Robbins, who also worked with Murphy on “Norbit” and “Meet Dave.” Suddenly, those two movies feel like career highpoints. This is the kind of crass, soulless cash-grab that has Murphy holding a Starbucks coffee cup in front of the camera while saying the line “This coffee is incredible.” This is the kind of racist, homophobic picture that makes fun of a gardener who speaks in a ridiculous accent (“Dee sprinkler ees dead, but I feex eet!”) and a running gag about an overweight gay man trolling a hotel for casual sex.

This is the kind of colossally misguided vanity project in which the story takes a melodramatic turn, exploits Ruby Dee as an elderly woman suffering from Alzheimer’s, and concludes with a sequence in which Jack gets in touch with his inner child by chasing a boy through a field of wheat shot in golden, sun-kissed light. I am not making any of this up. Nicolas Cage served as a producer on “A Thousand Words,” which makes me wonder if he considered starring in the movie himself at some point. And yet Cage eventually passed, and he’s the guy who made “Ghost Rider” and “The Wicker Man.” “A Thousand Words”

A THOUSAND WORDS H rating: PG-13 for vulgar language, sexual situations and adult themes Running time: 1:22 Starring: Eddie Murphy, Kerry Washington, Cliff Curtis, Clark Duke, Allison Janney, Jack McBrayer and Ruby Dee was filmed in 2008 but wasn’t scheduled for release until now, in order to capitalize on Murphy’s anticipated gig as host of the Academy Awards. Except he bailed on the Oscars, and we got stuck with this insufferable

movie. I wish I could erase “A Thousand Words” from my memory, because I suspect I will never be able to find Murphy funny again. A movie this awful sears into your brain forever: It’s bad enough to scar. Beware.

RUNNUR strap keeps gadget clutter out of pockets FlyGrip; $29.95 FlyGrip is a phone case attachment designed for the multi-tasker. The product features a pullout mechanism that has a curved design for two fingers. This allows one to easily hold their phone using one hand with a solid grip. The support from two fingers is amazingly great. You can tell that the phone is securely in your grasp. Having an extra hand free makes it easier to take advantage of touchscreen controls such Chris as pinching or sliding Pittman fingers. iSpy The unique finger grip doubles as a kickstand. This allows the user to prop her phone up in portrait or landscape views. Thick, bulky cases frustrate me to no end. It’s criminal to cover up such a beautiful device with a gargantuan monstrosity. Fortunately, the FlyGrip’s included case takes up very little real estate around the phone. You can install the FlyGrip on a ton of different phone cases. Location of bat-

tery is the only real culprit to preventing use of the product. Thus, some Android phone models won’t work well. FlyGrip comes in a plethora of colors, including flashy magenta and traditional black. The sizes of the product are available depending on your phone model. The lone complaint I have deals with the installation process. An adhesive is used to connect the FlyGrip to the case. Those who have expensive phone protectors might be wary of putting such a substance on their case. The FlyGrip is a great product for people who drop their phone often. Multi-taskers will love having access to their thumb for touch screen purposes. These functionalities make the product a big winner in my eyes.

RUNNUR; $39 I often question just how I’m supposed to carry everything around these days. My phone, keys and glasses are enough to fill my pockets in a hurry. Thankfully, the folks over at RUNNUR share my pain and have invented a product that eliminates my frustrations. In fact, creator Andrew Hamra invented the RUNNUR when he needed more space to carry his everyday essentials. The product is a small strap that

extends from the shoulder across the body to the hip. It weighs very little and the fabric is very comfortable to the touch. The front has pockets designed to hold an I.D., phone and MP3 player. The I.D. holder features a velcro flap that can easily be pulled up when needed. There is also a holder made specifically for holding cash, credit cards and other valuables. RUNNER’s back pockets include glasses and snacks holders. A camera can easily fit into the latter spot. A reflector lines the middle area to give a more safe experience during the evening hours. A carabiner, a metal ring with a snap link, lines the bottom to serve as a keychain. Finally, a spot for a water bottle is nestled on the back of the RUNNUR. Placing a water bottle in the designed area does wonders for the overall feel of the RUNNUR. The added weight at the bottom helps create a better balance and tightness around the shoulder area. Like the fanny pack, I expect many to be turned off by the RUNNUR when they first see it. This is a shame, though, as the product is a fantastic way to carry things around with limited bulk added to the body. The RUNNUR is a blessing to those

like me who need a little extra room in carrying around needed items. If that’s you, too, then you should pick one up.

Apple lets movies into iCloud, upgrades Apple TV By Ryan Nakashima Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Apple is making it easier for people who buy movies through iTunes to play them on the various devices they own. Apple said Wednesday that customers can now save some movies on its iCloud remote storage service. That system lets devices such as the iPad and the iPhone retrieve content wirelessly. Before, if you bought a movie on one device to play on another, you needed to connect both to a personal computer with a physical cord. ICloud does away with that. The change also means people will be able to watch purchased movies on an improved

Apple TV set-top box going on sale next week. That development should allay frustration consumers have had with digital purchases of movies, which could be bought on iPads and iPhones, but couldn’t be stored on the Apple TV device because it has no hard drive. Apple TV owners had been limited to renting movies until now. “ICloud now supports movies, starting today,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said at a packed presentation in San Francisco. Previously, Apple’s iCloud saved only users’ songs, photos and documents on its computer servers. Apple’s head of Internet services, Eddy Cue, demonstrated how the movie system

would work using a new Apple TV set-top box. The device will now be able to play movies in the “1080p” format, the highest-resolution video standard in common use. Previously, Apple TV could only play back movies in “720p.” The small box, which comes with a remote, will still cost $99. The upgraded version will go on sale next week. The box will continue to offer online movie streaming services that require monthly subscriptions such as Netflix. On Wednesday, Netflix Inc. said customers will be able to sign up for its service directly from an Apple TV box and pay for it through an iTunes account. Movies from Sony Corp. and the Walt Disney Co. will work on iCloud.

But those from Comcast Corp.’s Universal Pictures and News Corp.’s 20th Century Fox won’t initially be available because of existing deals with Time Warner Inc.’s premium pay TV channel, HBO. HBO’s policy is to prevent studios from selling movies on iTunes when the movies are playing on its service, which usually begins within a year of their theatrical release. Consumers who buy movies before they start playing on HBO will be allowed to access them through iCloud. HBO made an exception for sister company Warner Bros. to participate in iCloud in this way, and it will likely do the same for Universal and Fox, said HBO spokesman Jeff Cusson. (Warner Bros. declined comment.)

“Like with any other technological enhancement, we’ve always been able to find common ground with our studio partners and I’m sure we’ll have the same result here,” Cusson said. The announcement comes about a week before five Hollywood studios including Sony, Warner Bros. and Fox are to announce that Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will become a partner for an alternative standard of saving movie purchases online called UltraViolet. The movie announcement came at an Apple event where Cook also revealed a new iPad that has higher screen resolution than the previous model and can work on faster 4G cellular networks.

Newsday

NEW YORK — If there’s a hall of fame for playing complex, tortured, TV bad guys, Walton Goggins is in it. For seven years, the 40-yearold Georgia native earned critical praise as rogue cop Shane Vendrell in the hit FX series “The Shield.” And for the past three years, his Emmy-nominated performance as Kentucky criminal mastermind Boyd Crowder has been one of the highlights of FX’s “Justified.” Goggins is also a much sought-after actor who has appeared in “Predators” and “Cowboys and Aliens,” and will be seen in Steven Spielberg’s “Abraham Lincoln” and Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained.” Newsday spoke with Goggins, who has also won an Oscar for a short film he produced, by phone from his Los Angeles home. Q. Boyd Crowder seems to be a guy who can’t make up his mind between Jesus or jail. Tell me how you see the character. A. I think Boyd Crowder is a man who is comfortable with extremes. The first season was about exploring both of those extremes — an agnostic, and then finding God. A man like Boyd, it was about being honest with himself as to who he is, and being OK with that. He’s a criminal, don’t mistake it, and this season is about Boyd honoring his own conclusions about himself. I think he sees himself as a person who brings along the poor and downtrodden with him. He’s part Vic Mackey, part Nucky Thompson, part Peter Pan and part Robin Hood, and he’s OK with that. Q. You seem to enjoy playing bad guys with complex issues. Why is that? A. I think that compassion and empathy are the

FX via Associated Press

Walton Goggins portrays Boyd Crowder in a scene from ‘Justified.’ recipes for success when playing a character with questionable morals. I think I can generate some empathy personally because I’m compassionate. I’m a good listener as a human being, and the same thing applies when you’re playing these people, people who at first glance are written off, “this is who this guy is.” Q. You have a distinct Southern accent, and with all the stereotyping of Southerners that goes on in the movies and on TV, I wonder if that was a problem when you got started in the business? A. Absolutely. The first week I was (in L.A.), somebody said the first thing you have to do is lose that accent. They didn’t realize that accent put food on the table; they were looking for the stupid Southern racist, and I got those roles, and made good money doing it. Then, I felt I was not going to perpetuate that stereotype anymore. It’s ironic that this accent I’ve been running

away from, I’ve come back to it, and met with so much success. It’s sweet to be an ambassador for this section of the country. Q. In fact, you are a partner in Ginny Mule Pictures, a production company that has made several films set in the South. A. They don’t have anything to do with racism; they’re just movies about people in the South. The last movie we produced (“That Evening Sun,” starring Hal Holbrook) was about an octogenarian wanting to define his own life by his own terms. That’s a universal story in America. It was a matter of saying there’s more to the South than what Hollywood has been spoonfeeding you for years. Q. You won an Oscar in 2001 for a short film called “The Accountant,” which you produced and starred in. How did that affect your career? A. We were just looking to make a calling card, so we could get to make a feature,

Follow us on Twitter @bamaescapes

and that’s what it helped us to do. It wasn’t a key to inside the house, but to the little foyer, where people leave their shoes, and it gave us the opportunity to make our first feature. It didn’t fundamentally change my career as an actor. Q. You’re a photographer and traveler, who even has a blog featuring your pictures and thoughts about India. Do you have a favorite place among all your journeys? A. There is no one favorite place. I’ve gained insight from everyone. A weakness and strength is continually looking forward, and I’m just looking towards the next one. The next one might be northern Turkey, or getting on a motorcycle in Patagonia and hanging out in Argentina. I like traveling on $20 a day, and going places where people don’t go, and that are relatively safe. I want to go to places that are fantasies, places that are not part of your average itinerary.

www.bamaescapes.com Pop culture Q&A

TV schedules keep changing By Rich Heldenfels Akron Beacon Journal

Q: Has the TV show “Bones” on Fox been canceled? Has it aired and I have missed it? The last show I saw was when Bones and Booth had found an apartment to live together and their baby had not been born yet. I really like this show and I hope it has not been canceled. A: As I mentioned in last week’s mailbag, the show has just been in hiatus, in part because of co-star Emily Deschanel’s maternity leave. But, since that answer, Fox has announced a new return date and night for the show. It will now be back on April 2, with telecasts at 7 p.m. Mondays. “House” will move to 8 p.m.

Mondays. “House,” as you may know, is in its final season; a retrospective special is set for 7 p.m. May 21, followed by the series finale at 9 p.m. “Bones” will be pre-empted on that night. Q: Several months ago, we watched “The Touch,” with Kevin Bacon as a father trying to reconnect with his autistic son. It was listed as a pilot episode, but we’ve found no ensuing episodes. Is it still on somewhere? A: The TV series “Touch,” starring Kiefer Sutherland, had a sneak preview some time back as Fox tried to drum up interest in the program. Although a previous premiere date was announced, the latest news from Fox includes a replay of the previewed episode at

Since we are catching up with schedule changes, Fox’s 25th-anniversary special, previously announced for April 1, will now air April 22. Q: Please tell me about Ryan Gosling. I saw a movie called “The Notebook” on TV and I had never heard of him or Rachel McAdams. A: Gosling, 31, is a native of Canada and one of the most highly regarded young actors working today. He has an Oscar nomination to his credit, for his performance in “Half Nelson” in 2006. He was nominated for two Golden Globes this year, as best actor in a drama for “The Ides of March,” and best actor in a comedy or musical for “Crazy, Stupid, Love” and for an Independent Spirit Award for his work in the violent drama “Drive.” (He did not win any of those prizes.) Besides 2004’s “The Notebook,” other distinguished performances include his work in “Blue Valentine” (2010),

opposite Michelle Williams, and “Lars and the Real Girl” (2007). You may also have spotted him in a supporting role in “Remember the Titans” or in a number of TV performances earlier in his career. Gosling has been linked to quite a few actresses, including McAdams, but she is now reportedly dating Michael Sheen, with whom she worked in “Midnight in Paris.” McAdams, 33, is also Canadian. Her credits include the Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock Holmes films, where she played Irene Adler; “The Time Traveler’s Wife”; “Wedding Crashers”; and “Mean Girls” (where she was the meanest meanie).
