Children will have the chance to create a fairy house or gnome cottage for their own gardens and assist in creating a miniature world for the Garden’s Nature Explore Classroom.z They’ll also create frames using natural and recycled materials for a place to display their favorite picture from their outdoor adventures in 2014. Staff and volunteers will help children create their own nature journals to track, draw and log all their visits to the Children’s Garden. Special guests include live birds from the World Bird Sanctuary, who will visit from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Finn, the Children’s Garden friendly frog mascot who will roam the Garden and greet visitors at 11 a.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday.

MoBOT to celebrate Arbor Day with giveways For The Edge

I

n celebration of Arbor Day, plant a tree for free! The Missouri Botanical Garden will once again mark the state’s celebration on Friday, April 4 by giving away 600 tree saplings to visitors on a first-come, first-served basis.

Blackgum (Nyssa sylvatica), Willow oak (Quercus phellos), Flowering dogwood (Cornus florida), Redbud (Cercis Canadensis) and Witch hazel (Hamamelis vernalis) saplings

will be available at the William T. Kemper Center for Home Gardening from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or while supplies last. Master Gardeners will also be on-hand to answer questions and give advice on planting trees in the spring. All five species offered this year are native to Missouri. The black gum is an excellent tree for landscaping and food for wildlife, best suited for acidic-soil on dry, rocky-wooded slopes. They are large trees which can grow up to 100 feet tall. The willow oak typically grows 40 to 75 feet tall with an oval to rounded crown,

but may reach 100 feet in ideal conditions. Smooth-edged, bristletipped, narrow green leaves are willow-like. Leaves turn an undistinguished yellow-brown or dull gold in fall. The flowering dogwood is the Missouri State tree and attains a small to medium size, under 30 feet tall. It’s best to plant this tree under some shade or where it will not receive direct sun in the afternoon. Flowering dogwoods have great spring flowers and outstanding fall color in most years. The redbud is always a show stopper in the spring with bright pink blossoms that emerge before the leaves. A prominent native tree of small size (under 30 feet tall), it’s good for backyard landscapes and is best planted in shaded areas or where afternoon sun does not hit this tree directly. The witch hazel is a winter-blooming, deciduous rounded shrub. Typically growing to 10 feet tall with a somewhat larger spread, it is noted for its extremely early (January through March) bloom of fragrant, yellow flowers, medium green summer foliage and yellow fall color. “Our interest in this giveaway is to encourage the diversification of plants introduced into the

landscape, in order to create a more sustainable environment,” said Glenn Kopp, Horticulture Information Manager at the Kemper Center. “All of the trees can be considered dependable performers, disease and insect tolerant, and of outstanding quality for the home landscape.” Photos of all five trees can be found on the Garden’s PlantFinder website at www.gardeninghelp.org. The first Arbor Day was observed on April 10, 1872 in Nebraska, created as a way to increase awareness about the importance of trees. In 1970, former president Richard M. Nixon proclaimed the annual federal celebration of National Arbor Day. Today, Arbor Day is celebrated in all 50 U.S. states, and variations of the observance are celebrated in countries around the world including Japan, Israel, Korea and India. National Arbor Day falls on the last Friday in April, but individual states observe the occasion on different dates depending on their best tree-planting times. Missouri recognizes its State Arbor Day on the first Friday in April. The Garden’s Arbor Day tree giveaway is included with general admission of $8; St. Louis City and

County residents enjoy discounted admission of $4. Children ages 12 and under and Garden members are free. The Missouri Botanical Garden is located at 4344 Shaw Blvd. in south St. Louis, accessible from Interstate 44 at the Vandeventer exit and from Interstate 64 at the Kingshighway North & South exit. Free parking is available onsite at the west lot and two blocks west at the corner of Shaw and Vandeventer.

“Hazzard” favorite to appear at car show The actor who made Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane an icon of the early 1980s is the featured celebrity at this year’s Greenville Graffiti Car Show. James Best, one of the co-stars of “The Dukes of Hazzard,” will sign autographs and serve as a celebrity judge of the classic cars and trucks on Saturday, June 14 in downtown Greenville. He will also present his one man show “Best of Hollywood” on Friday, June 13. Best’s career began in 1950 and he soon appeared alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest legends including James Stewart in “Winchester ’73” and Humphrey Bogart in “The Caine Mutiny.” Best was also featured in two of Universal Pictures biggest franchises---“Ma and Pa Kettle at the Fair” and “Francis Goes to West Point.” Fans of 1950s horror movies may remember James Best as the star of the 1959 cult classic “The Killer Shrews.” His television appearances included two episodes of “The Andy Griffith Show” and three episodes of “The Twilight Zone.” With over 180 acting credits to his name, Best’s most beloved character was Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane from 1979 to 1985 on “The Dukes of Hazzard.” Rosco, under the

direction of Boss Hogg, spent each week chasing after the Duke boys. Car show organizers have received numerous requests to bring in a cast member from “The Dukes of Hazzard.” Best is expected to be a big draw to the event. In conjunction with his appearance at the Greenville Graffiti Car Show, Best’s one man show---“Best of Hollywood”---will be performed the night before at the Globe Theater, on the Greenville square. This 90 minute journey through Best’s career offers fans an intimate look behind the curtains, soundstages, and backlots of the studios and stars. Television and movie clips will be woven through humorous anecdotes, reminiscences, and Best’s imitation of friend and co-star James Stewart.

Religion Benedict's announcement changed church VATICAN CITY (AP) — It was the quietest of announcements that had the effect of a thunderclap on the Catholic world: A year ago Tuesday, Pope Benedict XVI said in a voice so soft that cardinals strained to hear (and in a Latin not all could easily follow) that he was becoming the first pontiff to resign in more than half a millennium. On the eve of the anniversary, Benedict's longtime private secretary credited his boss' stunning decision with opening the way to the "enormous impact" Pope Francis is having on the church and world at large. Monsignor Georg Gaenswein's comments sent out a message of continuity between the awkward, bookish Benedict and his charismatic, super-star successor, the first Jesuit pope and the first pontiff from Latin America. It also may suggest that Benedict approves of the dramatic changes that Francis is bringing about within the church — even if many seem to go against the grain of his more restrained papacy. "We are all seeing the impact that Pope Francis is having on the world, not just the faithful in the church but in the world — it's an enormous impact — and this impact was also facilitated by Pope Benedict in resigning," Gaenswein told Vatican Television. "He opened a possibility that until

then wasn't there, and we can see that Pope Francis has taken this situation in hand and we're delighted." Gaenswein is in the historically unique situation of serving two popes: While he remains Benedict's secretary, lives with him in his retirement home in the Vatican gardens and takes daily walks with him each afternoon, Gaenswein is also the head of Pope Francis' household, arranging his schedule and appearing regularly with him at his Wednesday general audiences and other public events. Gaenswein was by Benedict's side on that Monday morning, Feb. 11, 2013 when, during the course of a routine announcement of new saints on a Vatican holiday, Benedict announced that he no longer had the "strength of mind and body" to be pope and would retire at the end of the month. Francis was elected about a month later and has dazzled the world with his simple style, message of mercy over moralizing and a tone of welcoming that has thrilled progressive Catholics and troubled conservatives. He has since been named "Person of the Year" by Time magazine and has injected new life into an institution that was crumbling following a decade of scandal over sexual abuse, and more recently

live his remaining years "hidden from the world" in a converted convent in the Vatican gardens, praying, reading, playing piano and receiving visitors. He has only attended one public event with Francis — to inaugurate a statue in the Vatican gardens in the summer — and he has put the lid on his once-prolific bookpublication pace. Francis seems perfectly at ease with the pope next door; they exchanged visits over the Christmas holidays and they not only speak frequently by phone but also exchange written notes back and forth. Gaenswein acknowledged that February 2013 was tough on him, as it would be on anyone saying goodbye. On Benedict's final day as pope, Feb. 28, Gaenswein openly wept as he and the pope bid farewell to staff in the Apostolic Palace and headed out to the helicopter waiting to take them away to the papal re s i d e n c e i n C a s t e l G a n d o l f o , where Benedict spent his first months in retirement. "For me, the last day of the pontificate was a day of terrible pain," he said.

Eastern Mennonite reviews same-sex hiring policy H A R R I S O N B U R G , Va . ( A P ) — Eastern Mennonite University is reviewing its policy against hiring people who are in same-sex relationships. T h e re v i e w i n c l u d e s a s i x month listening process that began in January. The university, in Harrisonburg, Va., is conducting an online survey through April 30 to gather public input. The survey is posted on the university's website. Eastern Mennonite conducted a previous survey to obtain input from students, faculty, staff, alumni and donors.

" I n t h e e i g h t y e a r s p r i o r, Benedict was a pope who had to be discovered, sampling his beautiful homilies and studying the profoundness of his texts. But his shy and reserved character, in addition to a certain hostility by the media, didn't completely show him off," Cottier told Av v e n i r e , t h e n e w s p a p e r o f the Italian bishops' conference. " N o w, a f t e r h i s r e s i g n a t i o n , people are beginning to realize what a big heart he has: he's a humble, good man, without any toughness." Benedict himself appeared to offer Francis a thumbs up in a recent letter to the dissident Catholic theologian Hans Kueng. Kueng, who clashed with the former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, told Italy's La Repubblica newspaper on Monday he had received a note from Benedict Jan. 24 in which the former pope wrote: "I'm grateful to be bound by a great identity of views and a heartfelt friendship with Pope Francis. Today, I see my last and final job to support his pontificate with prayer." In fact, Benedict has largely stuck to his retirement pledge to

In Iowa, Ted Cruz embraces his religious side DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Long known as a fiscal conservative, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is embracing his religious side for Christian home schooling advocates in Iowa. The Texas Republican told a crowd of more than 500 homeschoolers in Des Moines on Tuesday that "there is no liberty more important than religious liberty." And Cruz decried what he called the federal government's attempts to impede it. He said the Obama administration has been more openly hostile to religious freedom than any other in American history. Cruz is frequently mentioned as a possible 2016 presidential candidate. His fourth visit to Iowa since last summer has fueled that speculation. Cruz addressed the Iowa Republican Party's annual Ronald Reagan dinner in October, and met with Christian conservatives and evangelical leaders during two visits last summer.

over the theft of Benedict's private papers by his own butler. As the anniversary of that m o m e n t o u s d a y a p p ro a c h e d , Vatican officials have sought to stress Benedict's generosity, courage and service to the church in deciding to step down as they battle to preserve his legacy amid the increasing temptation to contrast his often problematic papacy and reserved personality with his crowd-pleasing successor. It's no easy feat when no one ever made a "Super Pope" wall painting of Benedict or created a life-sized chocolate statue of him — as has been the case with Francis. R e c e n t l y, t h e Va t i c a n spokesman felt the need to defend Benedict when Rolling Stone magazine put Francis on the cover and compared his "gentle revolution" to the "disastrous papacy" of his predecessor. Benedict's longtime deputy recently issued a mea culpa for not having been able to better protect his boss from the "ruthless criticism" lobbed his way over sexual abuse and the leaks of confidential papal documents. And over the weekend, Benedict's personal t h e o l o g i a n , C a rd i n a l G e o rg e s Cottier, said the REAL Benedict really only came to be known once he resigned.

With his singular voice, narrative songwriting and passionate live performances, Rod Stewart has built one of the most successful and enduring music careers of all time. In a career spanning more than five decades, he has amassed sales of more than 150 million albums worldwide and has countless charttopping hits and industry accolades - including two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2007, he was bestowed Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by the Queen of England. In May 2013, Stewart released Time, his first rock album in a dozen years, on Capitol Records. The album features 11 original tracks and marks Rod’s return to songwriting after nearly two decades. Time entered the UK Albums Chart at No. 1, setting a new British record for the longest gap between chart-topping albums by an artist -- and in the US, it marked Stewart’s highestcharting album of original material since 1979. In addition to touring, Stewart headlines one of Las Vegas’ most critically and commercially successful residencies at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.  For forty years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards. He won a record-tying nine Grammys for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”). He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), and received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009). Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has also been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Celebrating the chart debut of "Guitar Heaven" (Arista) in 2010, Santana joined the ranks of the Rolling Stones as the only musical act in chart history to score at least one Top 10 album in every decade beginning with the 1960s. He is also currently headlining at a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. In 2013, Carlos Santana was the recipient of the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors Award. Santana’s new album "Corazon" (RCA/Sony Latin Iberia) due out May 6, 2014 is a collaborative effort with the biggest names in Latin music.

Unrepentant Geraldines is her 14th studio recording, and a return to her core identity as a creator of contemporary songs, following a series of more classically-inspired and innovative musical projects of the last four years. These have included the seasonal collection Midwinter Graces, the classically influenced Night of Hunters, and Gold Dust, a collection of orchestral re-workings of songs from across her career. Released in October 2012 Gold Dust included “Flavor,” which was remixed by the late DJ Peter Rauhofer and peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Club Dance Chart in February 2013.   Amos recently also launched her most ambitious project to date as a composer, along with book writer Samuel Adamson, with the musical The Light Princes, which premiered at London's National Theatre in fall of 2013. Tori Amos has sold over 12 million albums, has played over a thousand shows and has won numerous awards. Since the release of her debut album Little Earthquakes 21 years ago in 1992 where she pushed boundaries with her confessional style of songwriting, Amos continues to be adored, picking up new fans along the way, romanced by her messages of empowerment, tenderness, acerbic assertiveness, and of course her utterly peerless sound. A p i o n e e r a c ro s s m u l t i p l e platforms, Tori Amos was the first major label artist to offer a single for download.

Washington University to host ninth African film festival For The Edge Growing up in rural Alaska, Chukwuma is caught between American friends and traditional Nigerian parents. But when a family tragedy sends life spiraling out of control, Chukwana discovers that the best hope for salvation may be his estranged sister, Chidinma. So begins “Alaskaland,” the debut feature from Chinonye Chukwu, a Nigerian-born director who was herself raised in Fairbanks. Later this month, “Alaskaland” will be one of eight films screened as part of Washington University’s annual African Film Festival. Screenings begin at 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 28, 29 and 30. A special youth matinee will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday. On Sunday night, Chukwu will introduce “Alaskaland” and host a Q&A immediately afterwards. All events are free and open to the public and take place in Brown Hall, Room 100, on the university’s Danforth Campus. For more information, visit: wupa.wustl.edu/africanfilm, email organizer Wilmetta Toliver-Diallo at toliver-diallo@wustl.edu or call (314) 935-7879. Coming of Age Now in its ninth year, the African Film Festival is organized by Wilmetta Toliver-Diallo, assistant dean in the College of Arts & Sciences and senior lecturer in African & African-American Studies in Arts & Sciences. “Our festival’s development has advanced so much from its initial concept because it has been so well-received by our campus and St. Louis regional communities,” says Toliver-Diallo. “We continue to enjoy bringing diverse voices together to witness magic on screen and discuss it afterwards. This helps us to grow our audience.” The 2014 festival is based on the theme “coming of age” — a term that applies both to the films’ subject matter and many of the creators. “This year ’s collection features filmmakers less established than those featured in previous years, but who have more formal training than the first generation of African filmmakers,” says Toliver-Diallo. “For this reason — and with

It is a great to see Saul Williams, of slam poetry fame, back on screen and very compelling as a Senegalese man who returns home to spend his last day on earth. “ ’ Ay a ’ i s a n a n i m a t e d f i l m — though not for very young audiences — that really captures Ivorian pop culture in the 1970s, but makes a statement to young women on the importance of independence when making life choices, especially as your peers might be doing otherwise.” Sponsors The festival is sponsored by

Washington University’ African and African-American Studies Program and its Film and Media Studies Program, both in Arts & Sciences; the African Students Association; and the Brown School African Students Association, which will lead a post-show discussion each evening. Additional funding is provided by a grant from the Women’s Society of Washington University and by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency. “The film festival allows for a different type of reflection and perspective on the African continent,” says Caleb Edwards, president of the African Students Association. “The films are crafted with first-hand experiences in order to give a glimpse on how Africans interpret and respond to the stories/events of the continent that we only get to know about second-hand.” Other supporters include the Saint Louis Art Museum, which will provide thematically related crafts to attendees at the

youth matinee.

The Arts Bruno David Gallery to exhibit works of Michael Jantzen SIUE graduate has received international acclaim For The Edge

B

runo David is delighted to announce that Michael Jantzen has joined the gallery.

Michael Jantzen is an internationally known artist whose work has been featured in hundreds of articles, books, magazines, and newspapers from around the world. His work attempts to merge art, architecture, technology, and sustainable design. He has not been educated as an architect but rather as an artist, using architecture as an art form. By incorporating his surroundings, he assimilates his pieces simultaneously to fit within the environment and the environment to accommodate them. Much of his work, in one way or another, explores new ways of thinking about sustainability. Michael Jantzen is currently working on his upcoming exhibition at Bruno David Gallery. Michael Jantzen has always approached his art and design as an inventor, rather than a stylist. By creating architectural art, he is reinventing the built environment so that it can continually be altered to meet the changing needs and desires of its occupants. At times, he attempts to invent systems and components that can be assembled and reassembled in various ways, thus creating form from symbolic references, which relate directly to the specific site and/or function of the project. As a result, another aesthetic component evolves that is unexpected yet equally relevant. In his recent works, he has developed an architectural art structure that holds both functionality and aesthetic beauty. His latest sculpture titled M-velope is one in a series of functional art structures designed to be special places in which to escape from the normal reality of a predictable conventional space. Those who encounter the M-velope will be inspired to think more creatively about their own passions in life. The M-velope series aesthetics are based on the world famous Mhouse, also designed by Michael Jantzen, which was exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The finale shape of the M-velopes are generated from much simpler forms, which are further subdivided into various segments, and hinged in and out to create a final form. Reinventing the world’s external spaces and sharing this vision with others to create a better place for all humanity is one of Michael’s goals for his works. His work has been featured in a multitude of books, magazines and newspapers. Some of the magazines include Wallpaper, Architecture Magazine, Architectural Digest, The AIA Journal, House & Garden, Popular Science, Domus, Elle Décor, Esquire, Dwell, Metropolis, Art Forum, and Newsweek.

QuickGlance Movie Reviews

"In Secret"

There have been many stage and screen adaptations of “Therese Raquin,” Emile Zola’s 1867 novel about love and betrayal. Perhaps most notable was filmmaker Marcel Carne’s 1953 version, “The Adultress,” starring Simone Signoret and Raf Vallone. It was a classic slice of film noir; a feverish take on a sordid love affair. “In Secret” is the latest rendering of Zola’s bleak story. Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaacs, Tom Felton and Jessica Lange offer compelling performances in a provocative remake that’s stirring until its withered end. Set in 1860s France, Therese (played seductively by Olsen) is sent to live with her aunt, Madame Raquin (Lange), an entitled and needy dame who forces her niece to marry her sickly son, Camille (played delicately and artfully by Felton). When Camille gets a job as a clerk in Paris, the three move from the country to the bustling city, where Madame Raquin opens a fabric shop. Resigned to an uninspired life working in her aunt’s store, Therese, who’s become increasingly lascivious, is even welcoming the idea of sex with her effeminate cousin to satisfy her desires. RATEDL R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “sexual content and brief violent images.” RUNNING TIME: 107 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

“Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me”

For a documentary subject as forceful as Elaine Stritch, filmmakers may need to turn to nature — a typhoon might do it — to find anything approximate. Even the camera must warily keep its distance in “Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me.” She warns its operator when he gets too close: “I don’t know whether this is a skin commercial, or what.” Stritch captivates just walking down the street: greeting fans, chastising cabs, swaying to the music of the sidewalk. “I wish I could f---ing drive,” she says at the opening of the documentary. “Then I’d really be a menace.” The strong types usually seen in movies— caped men with powers, action heroes with six-packs — have nothing on this long-legged, 89-year-old New York broad. Stritch, who has long eschewed pants of any sort, has the kind of ferocious voice that old age can’t quiet. Chiemi Karasawa’s “Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me” is an irresistibly entertaining documentary that captures Stritch during what she unsentimentally calls “almost post-time.” After seven decades performing in New York — on Broadway, in countless cabaret nights at the Cafe Carlyle — Stritch’s enormous energy has been knocked by the increasing years, diabetes, and surgeries on her hip and eyes. RATEDL not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America. Contains expletives. RUNNING TIME: 82 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three and a half stars out of four.

“Stalingrad”

Big screen. Big effects. Big budget. Big box office. It’s clear that Russian director Fedor Bondarchuk was going for something, well, big, with “Stalingrad,” the first-ever Russian film in IMAX 3D. And in a sense, that’s perfectly apt, because it would be hard to overstate how large the Battle of Stalingrad looms in the Russian psyche. The crucial Soviet victory over the Nazis in the battle, which lasted six months and was one of the bloodiest in modern warfare, was a key turning point of World War II — or what the Russians call the Great Patriotic War. And the rewards for Bondarchuk have been, yes, big, so

far. “Stalingrad,” with a reported $30 million budget, is a giant hit in Russia — the studio calls it the highest-grossing Russian movie of all time — and also has done huge box office in China. Now, it’s coming to IMAX 3D screens in the United States for a week, during which the filmmakers hope to spark further interest. The only problem is that the film, while certainly impressive in its effects and a few rock-’em sock-’em battle scenes, is sorely lacking in crucial areas, namely characterization and narrative. Perhaps it wouldn’t matter, if the film didn’t attempt to be not only a blockbuster but a heart-tugging, intimate story about bravery, endurance, sacrifice and love. To accomplish that, you need a compelling script and complex characters. RATED: R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “sequences of war violence.” RUNNING TIME: 135 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.

"Need for Speed"

It takes a lot for a film based on a video game to impress a crowd these days, given the dazzling advancements in gaming technology. But “Need for Speed,” based on the hit EA Entertainment racing game that’s sold 150 million units, could now drive some of that success toward the box office. Despite its clichid elements, this adrenaline-fueled stunt fest is an unequivocal thrill that deserves to be seen on the big screen. Starring “Breaking Bad’s” Aaron Paul, “Need for Speed” is fiercely entertaining, loaded with beautiful cars, winding roads and racers in leather coats. Since “Breaking Bad” ended last year, Paul has been making an impressive transition to film, starting with the indie drama “Hellion,” which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. In “Need for Speed,” he flexes his machismo as a street racer on a vendetta. Following a two-year prison sentence for a crime he didn’t commit, mechanic and race driver Tobey Marshall (Paul) is determined to get revenge on Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper), the man who framed him. To do so, Tobey drives from New York to California to battle Dino in a high-stakes race dubbed the De Leon. Along for the ride are British car buff Julia (Imogen Poots) and Benny (Scott Mescudi, also known as recording artist Kid Cudi), the jovial airborne lookout of Tobey’s crew. Written by first-timer George Gatins, who produced “She’s Out of My League,” the plot is heavy with questionable logic and monotonous dialogue. Modeled after classic 1960s and 1970s action films, where the cars were key, “Need for Speed” often attempts to be a dramatic thriller. But it’s best when consciously comical. Trite conventions, like Tobey’s brooding demeanor, punctuated by his deep monotone and acute stare, are effective, although overdone at times. RATED: PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “sequences of reckless street racing, disturbing crash scenes, nudity and crude language.” RUNNING TIME: 130 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.

"Ernest & Celestine"

The delicate and lovingly hand-made “Ernest & Celestine” captures the whimsy and warmth of a dearly felt children’s picture book like few movies before. The Oscar-nominated animated French-Belgian film is a simply rendered tale about a friendship between a mouse and a bear, painted with watercolor backgrounds and handsketched characters. In a movie landscape crowded with awesome digital animations and forgettable big-budget cartoon blockbusters, “Ernest & Celestine” is a humble oasis of gentle and inventive storytelling. Though the film lost out to Disney’s mighty “Frozen” at the Academy Awards, children and adults will be thrilled

March 27, 2014

by this meek underdog, which is being released both in its original French and an English redubbing voiced by Forest Whitaker, Lauren Bacall, Paul Giamatti and child actress Mackenzie Foy. (This review is of the French original, which holds the charm of hearing little children mice speaking timidly in French. Be warned: The cuteness is almost unbearable.) An orphanage of mice has gathered around Celestine (voiced by Pauline Brunner, the daughter of “Triplets of Belleville” producer Didier Brunner, also a producer here), a bright young mouse who — despite the stern warnings of their frightful headmaster (Anne-Marie Loop) that such ideas are dangerous — imagines a bear and mouse as pals. In the world of “Ernest & Celestine,” this is tantamount to heresy. The mice live below ground and the bears above — the car-driving, shop-keeping human equivalents in this universe. Their lone interaction is when a bear cub loses a tooth, which the “fairy mouse” replaces with a coin. (This, it turns out, is a mutually beneficial deal, since mice dentists depend on bear teeth to fashion tooth replacements.) RATED: PG by the Motion Picture Association of American for “some scary moments.” RUNNINT TIME: 80 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three and a half stars out of four.

“Muppets Most Wanted"

A strange sense of doom hangs over the rebooted Muppets, and it’s not from the Swedish Chef’s cooking. “The Muppets” (2011) may have been an earnest and largely successful relaunch for Jim Henson’s troupe, but it also had a hangdog melancholy, fretting about the obsolescence of Kermit and the gang. Pop-culture insecurity looms in “Muppets Most Wanted,” too, which begins with the same self-conscious tone as the last film in the musical number “We’re Doing a Sequel.” Though Dr. Bunsen Honeydew (still the greatest name in show biz, sorry Sidney Poitier) notes this is technically the Muppets’ seventh sequel, they nevertheless sing: “And everyone knows the sequel’s not quite as good.” The Muppets don’t need a sequel. They need a shrink. It seems they’ve swapped “the most inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational” show for an ongoing pity party. Where is the confident intrepidness that made Gonzo disdainful of breaking through “the easy way” (Hollywood) when you could go through Bollywood instead? “Muppets Most Wanted,” thankfully, soon enough dispatches the previous film’s mopey nostalgia and sets things on a more madcap course: a European caper, not unlike 1981’s (alas superior) “The Great Muppet Caper.” The ingredients are here: Tina Fey as a Broadway-loving Gulag guard in Soviet chic; Ty Burrell in Inspector Clouseau mode; Ricky Gervais as the comically obvious bad guy (name: Dominic Badguy). But “Muppets Most Wanted” fails to whip up the kind of furry frenzy that makes the Muppets special. What’s missing? Many would say Jason Segel, the star and co-writer of “The Muppets.” He’s the holdout of largely the same, solid creative team: director James Bobin, co-writer Nicholas Stoller and music supervisor Bret McKenzie. But the bigger problem with “Muppets Most Wanted” is a failure to find the right human-to-Muppet ratio and a screwball feel for how the species interact. Most successful are Fey (who emerges as an unlikely rival to Miss Piggy for Kermit’s heart) and Burrell (an Interpol policeman paired with the CIA’s Sam the Eagle). RATED: PG by the Motion Picture Association of America for “some mild action.” RUNNING TIME: 106 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer poses for photographers as he arrives at the French premiere of the Disney film, "The Lone Ranger," in Paris, France, in July, 2013.

Bruckheimer isn't slowing down By SANDY COHEN Associated Press SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — On a quiet morning amid the awards-season rush, Jerry Bruckheimer’s shaggy golden retriever, Harper, is easily the most animated in the building. She trots about the production company headquarters, occasionally flopping onto her side for a belly rub, oblivious that her human — one of the most powerful men in Hollywood — is starting a new chapter. After more than two decades with Disney, where he produced the juggernaut “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “National Treasure” film franchises among many box-office hits, Bruckheimer begins a new partnership with Paramount this month. At Disney’s behest, he closes the previous chapter with a photo book as outsized as some of his productions: “Jerry

Bruckheimer: When Lightning Strikes — Four Decades of Filmmaking” is a 10-pound, 300page chronicle of his career in pictures. Johnny Depp wrote the foreword. “(It’s) a coffee-table book to celebrate the movies that I’ve made, my time at Disney and my time in the business, basically,” says Bruckheimer, sitting in a black leather chair in his two-story office in Santa Monica. A suit of armor stands guard over an immense wooden conference table and the silver liquor cart beside it. Books and Emmy statuettes line the walls. A spiral staircase leads to a loft. One gets the impression it’s rare to see the entertainment mogul in a highly animated state. A small, fit man who looks at least a decade younger than his 70 years, the veteran producer is gracious but measured during a recent interview. His voice and manner are quiet and firm. Once in a while, an eyecrinkling smile spreads across his face.

Bruckheimer wants to talk about his career and where it’s headed, though he insists things won’t change much as he begins his three-year stint with Paramount. He’ll still be making movies. “Great storytelling is great storytelling,” he says. He anticipates digging into edgier, potentially R-rated fare that wouldn’t have fit into Disney’s family-oriented slate. He plans to produce sequels to his original Paramount hits “Beverly Hills Cop” and “Top Gun,” and says he hopes Eddie Murphy and Tom Cruise will reprise their starring roles. Another story on his mind? That of the U.S. Special Forces team that landed in Afghanistan after 9-11. He already holds the rights to a book on the period. “Hopefully with the success of (the Mark Wahlberg film) ‘Lone Survivor,’ we can get that jump-started,” Bruckheimer says.

He continues his work in television, too, where he’s found groundbreaking success with several “CSI” series and “The Amazing Race,” which has won 14 Emmy Awards. He has two new shows actively in the works: A family drama called “Home” for Fox and another CSI spinoff for CBS, this one centered on a cyber-psychologist and high-tech crime. “We wanted to create feature television... and audiences really responded to that,” Bruckheimer says, adding that the resulting worldwide popularity of “CSI” has led to its many copycats and spin-offs. “If imitation is the highest form of flattery,” he says, “then we are very flattered indeed by other programs which may have been influenced by ‘CSI.”’ However, despite decades of success in entertainment, Bruckheimer says he’s no closer to predicting audience taste than he was at the outset of his career.

"Veronica Mars" worthy of a sequel By ROBERT GRUBAUGH Of The Edge I confess that if I were to review the experience I had while watching the "Veronica Mars" movie, it would score about ten stars. I was excited, attending with a group of fans of the show, and indeed in an auditorium that was surprisingly full of obvious fans. I speak for many when I say that none were disappointed with the movie. It delivered fully on the promise to bring back characters we both loved and hated and show us what's become of them in the years since our beloved cult series had been yanked off the air. I'm not saying that I hate the CW for what it did. I can't. I'm a marshmallow. From 2004-2007, Veronica Mars

gave us three seasons of what was one of the best shows on television that no one was watching. It came along during the renaissance of the serialized drama (Lost, Desperate Housewives) and I often refer to it as a highlight in the last decade of television programming. Kristen Bell starred (and broke in big) as the titular Veronica, a high school student who moonlighted as a private detective. As an isolated loner kicked out of the cool crowd, Ms. Mars took her grief and anger and funneled it into developing the skills that her P.I. father (Enrico Colantoni) had himself mastered after being recalled from the sheriff's office. If you think it sounds hokey, you obviously weren't watching. After solving the murder of her best

friend, a bus accident that killed six classmates, numerous hate crimes, and infiltrating a Skull & Bones-style secret society, Veronica disappeared until Kickstarter became a thing and her principle fans donated a small ton of money to make the movie a reality. God bless them for that. The feature film comes nine years after the events of the show c o n c l u d e d . Ve ro n i c a i s n o w living in New York City where she's got a great line on some jobs practicing law. She's living with her college boyfriend, Piz (Chris Lowell), who works for the radio show This American Life. Her life is finally separating from the seedy existence that faced her in Neptune, California, the battle zone of class warfare that she

eventually escaped. But the siren song of past love and loyalty return to rear its ugly head. She's lured back to defend her former flame, Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring), when he's accused of murdering his pop star girlfriend. Logan and Veronica, while not the couple everyone celebrated, were epic and she's powerless to resist the pull of returning to her roots to save him. The mystery is adequate, but almost secondary to why someone like me would even attend. While back in Neptune, Veronica has the opportunity to flex her detective muscles, visit with her darling dad, and get tricked into attending her ten-year high school reunion by friends Mac (Tina Majorino) and Wallace (Percy Daggs III). This opens the door

March 27, 2014

for a dozen or more supporting characters from the show (Ryan Hansen, Ken Marino, Max Greenfield) who, incidentally, also make up about 75 percent of the cast from the caterers-whowant-to-be-actors "Party Down," creator Rob Thomas's other great show. Veronica Mars, as a movie, delivers to fans and will confuse random audience members with its numerous callbacks, inside jokes, and a snappy number of pop culture references. I loved it and welcome a sequel. Dare to dream. "Veronica Mars" runs 107 minutes and is rated PG-13 for sexuality including references, drug content, violence, and some strong language. I give this film two and a half stars out of four.
