9b[l[bWdZ From opposing ends of battleground Ohio, President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney on Thursday offered vastly different visions of how to speed up America’s economic recovery. They accused each other of pursuing failed ideas, yet on a day of high expectation both offered familiar platforms and lines. In Cincinnati, Romney said, “Don’t forget, he’s been president for three and a half years. And talk is cheap. Actions speak very loud.” Obama, trying in Cleveland to define the choice for voters, said: “If you want to give the policies of the last decade another try, then you should vote for Mr. Romney.” The backdrop was vital Ohio, one of the deeply contested states that could swing the election. With the two men locked in a tight campaign, it appeared they might actu-

PRESIDENT OBAMA SPEAKING THURSDAY ON THE ECONOMY

No matter what path President Obama or Mitt Romney follows to reach the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency, Ohio and its 18 votes figure in every scenario. No Republican has ever won the presidency without winning Ohio. Obama carried the state 52 percent to 47 percent in 2008 over John McCain; George W. Bush carried it 51 percent to 49 percent in 2004 over Democrat John Kerry. (AP)

The Republican spoke for under 20 minutes, with coat off and sleeves rolled up, to about 100 supporters at a manufacturing plant. In a more expansive, situation-setting address, the president went more than 50 minutes, to an eager crowd of 1,500 people at a community college.

Obama spoke of spending tax money on education, energy, science, innovation and transportation, and of cutting the debt by reducing spending elsewhere and raising taxes on the wealthy.

ford’s convictions on conspiracy, wire and mail fraud charges followed a seven-week trial. Stanford’s attorneys had asked for a maximum of 41 months, a sentence he could have completed in about five more months because he has been jailed since 2009. During Thursday’s sentencing hearing, Stanford gave a rambling statement. “I did not run a Ponzi scheme. I didn’t defraud anybody,” Stanford told the judge. Calling Stanford arrogant and remorseless, prosecutors said he used the money from investors

who bought certificates of deposit, or CDs, from his bank on Antigua to fund a string of failed businesses, bribe regulators and pay for his lavish lifestyle. Defense attorneys portrayed Stanford, 62, as a visionary entrepreneur who made money for investors and conducted legitimate business deals. Prosecutor William Stellmach chastised Stanford for his lack of remorse for defrauding thousands. “To the bitter end, he was a con man and a coward,” Stellmach said. JUAN A. LOZ ANO (AP)

Former jet-setting Texas tycoon R. Allen Stanford, whose financial empire once spanned the Americas, was sentenced Thursday to 110 years in prison for bilking investors out of more than $7 billion over 20 years in one of the largest Ponzi schemes in U.S. history. U.S. District Judge David Hittner handed down the sentence during a court hearing in which two people spoke on behalf of Stanford’s investors about how his fraud had affected their lives. Prosecutors had asked that Stanford be sentenced to 230 years in prison, the maximum sentence possible after a jury convicted the one-time billionaire in March on 13 of 14 fraud-related counts.

Court Rulings Roil Egypt Anew Moves stir protests against military rule a day before runoff 9W_he Egypt’s highest court ruled Thursday that much of the country’s Islamist-dominated parliament was elected illegally, a decision that will force the dissolution of the legislative body and that plunged the country into turmoil on the eve of a landmark presidential election. Local media reported that Egypt’s military rulers would seize legislative power and planned to

Egypt’s ruling military council said a presidential runoff would go ahead as scheduled Saturday and Sunday, the state-run media reported.

The court said that political parties unlawfully fielded candidates for the one-third of seats in the lower house of parliament that were supposed to be set aside for independent candidates. As a result, lawmakers elected to those seats will lose their posts. The judges on the top court are Mubarak appointees and seen as sympathetic to the old order. That perception could fuel confrontations between protesters and security forces. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

An official inspects the site of a suicide bombing on Thursday in Damascus, Syria.

Haffa, was mirrored in other parts of Syria, where more than 40 civilians and opposition fighters were killed Thursday, according to activists, alongside more than a halfdozen Syrian forces. A suicide bomber also detonated a van packed with explosives in a Damascus suburb, wounding 14 people and damaging one of Shiite Islam’s holiest shrines, according to Syria’s state-run news agency and witnesses. U.N. observers have reported a steep rise in violence and a dangerous shift in tactics by both sides in Syria in recent weeks, and suicide bombings have become increasingly common in Syria as the 15-month uprising against Assad.

Metro’s biggest change so far will bring familiar lines to new destinations MWi^_d]jed In touting its new Rush Plus system, Metro says many crowded stations will see more trains, and the only station that will see fewer trains is the one serving a cemetery. This is true, but it hasn’t mollified commuters who worry that a plus for others will be a minus for them. Concerns are most common among Blue Line riders. The disappearing trains belong to them. But the changes, the biggest since the rail system was completed, also has created some anxiety among the thousands of riders along the Orange, Yellow and Green lines. There are two major motives behind Rush Plus: Clear some room in the Rosslyn tunnel for the eventual Silver Line trains, and relieve crowding. In brochures, public announcements and ads, Metro says the overall effect will improve service for about 110,000 riders. Metro’s customers don’t care about the overall effect. All they know is that Metro is messing with their rides. Let’s go beyond the brochures and see how the changes affect each line as of Monday.

OR Orange Line

>emHki^!M_bb9^Wd][ J^[8bk[B_d[0 There will be bigger gaps between Blue Line trains. Metro will withdraw some trains from the traffic jam at the Rosslyn tunnel by eliminating every third Blue Line train on the route between Franconia-Springfield in Virginia and Largo Town Center in Maryland.

>emHki^!M_bb9^Wd][ J^[EhWd][B_d[0

Yellow Line

M^[h[j^[9^Wd][M_bbCWa[

The infamous Orange Crush should be less crushy: Rush Plus will add three trains per hour between Vienna and Largo Town Center. That means more service for the very crowded platforms between Vienna and Court House.

M^[h[j^[9^Wd][M_bb CWa[j^[8_]][ij?cfWYj0

M^[h[j^[9^Wd][M_bbCWa[

Metro is creating a new version of the Yellow Line to run between Franconia-Springfield and Greenbelt. So if you live in Alexandria, Columbia Heights or College Park and work near Mount Vernon Square or L’Enfant Plaza, you’ll have more trains, and they should be less crowded.

>emHki^!M_bb9^Wd][j^[=h[[dB_d[0

GR Green Line

Rush Plus changes do not affect Green Line service, but because more Green Line stations will see Yellow Line trains, keep in mind: A rider from Greenbelt or one of the other northern stations will have a transfer-free trip to Virginia stations along the Yellow Line’s Rush Plus route, including Reagan National Airport.

Riders waiting for inbound Green Line trains at Fort Totten will have the extra Rush Plus Yellow Line trains to reach downtown, the Pentagon and Alexandria.

Here are some answers to readers’ Rush Plus questions from The Washington Post’s transit expert taken from his online chats.

I appreciated your explanation of Rush Minus (which, for some people, is Rush Plus), but I think you neglected to talk about the buses that are being added to cover the Pentagon-Rosslyn gap. Could you fill us in?

The 8:50 a.m., Pentagon City station, Blue Line train won’t arrive for another eight minutes and there is no mention of any backups on the WMATA website. Why am I paying rushhour fare for this kind of service?

Metro says an option for Blue Line riders is Metrobus Route 9E or 10E, which will include service to Rosslyn via Crystal City during rush hour as of next week. Be sure to look at the online maps.

Metro doesn’t plan to lower the fare for deducting Blue Line trains, and it doesn’t plan to raise the fare for adding Orange and Yellow Line trains. Depending on your destination, you might experiment with the Yellow Line.

As it stands now, inbound Orange Line trains in the morning seem to vary between two and 10 minutes apart. Will Rush Plus reduce that variability, or will that variability hinder Rush Plus? That’s hard to say. We’ll have more Orange Line trains, but that’s no

When Rush Plus begins Monday, they’re scheduled to arrive at 6:39, 6:45 and 6:57. If you reach the platform just as the doors are closing on that 6:45 train, you won’t see another Blue Line train for 12 minutes because of the missing train.

Rush Plus comes in part to help free up room in the Rosslyn tunnel for the eventual arrival of Silver Line trains.

guarantee that they’ll be spaced evenly. One element that’s likely to help: Fewer Blue Line trains will use the Rosslyn tunnel, so the problem of switching Orange and Blue Line trains at Rosslyn will be reduced. (But the issue increases outside L’Enfant Plaza, because more Yellow Line trains will join up with the Green Line.)

RD Red Line

>emHki^! M_bb9^Wd][ J^[H[ZB_d[0 The Red Line is not directly affected by Rush Plus, but Red Line riders who are transferring to the lines that are affected may need to adjust their travel schedules.

I’m a Pentagon-to-downtown commuter who sometimes finds it better to take a Yellow and transfer under the current system. I can’t imagine I won’t do it more regularly now. The riders who clearly stand to benefit from Rush Plus are the ones coming from the Virginia Orange Line stations in the morning, those who start from Virginia or the upper Green Line and work in the middle of the District, or those who live and work along that central corridor.

:h$=h_ZbeYaoffers commuter counseling online at washingtonpost.com.

:[ij_dWj_ed0 CWii9ed\ki_ed There have been floor ads and station announcements and fliers. There are those new maps I wrote about last week. And on Wednesday, there was a woman in a bright yellow shirt positioned at the top of the Gallery Place escalators handing out pamphlets and announcing, “Changes coming Monday!” But when I stopped passengers heading in and out of the station to find out what they thought about Rush Plus, the overwhelming response was a blank stare. (And only a few of them were tourists who didn’t speak English.) “She gave me one, but I didn’t look at it,” said 43-year-old Clyde Brewer, gesturing at the woman in yellow. “It’s going to be all right as long as I can get where I need to go.” Brewer lives near Minnesota Avenue, so here’s hoping he doesn’t wind up on one of the new Orange Line trains to Largo. It won’t bring him to his destination. S e v e r a l f ol k s promised to read the pamphlet later, while others asked me to fill them in on what exactly was happening. “This is all news to me. I’m usually on my phone,” another guy told me — while texting on his phone. If people aren’t aware of Rush Plus, which seems to have gotten more promotion than a summer blockbuster starring Will Smith, then they probably have no clue about all of the other stuff Metro has planned for the next couple of months. For instance, the day before Rush-meggedon — I’m just guessing that’s what Monday’s disaster will be called — is the launch of Metro’s “better bus” service. The first phase of the rollout includes more limitedstop buses, some routes operating on headways (as in every 10 minutes) rather than on timetables, and a ton of other changes.

;nWYj9^Wd][ The first round of Metro’s $5 million “better bus” program, designed to improve on-time performance and reduce crowding, goes into effect on Sunday. Here are some of the changes:

There will be an hour of additional limited-stop service during both the morning and evening commutes along Pennsylvania Avenue and Wisconsin Avenue. Georgia Avenue routes 70 and 79 will switch from a timetable schedule to one based on headways to cut down wait times. To provide more capacity on 16th Street, expect more limited-stop S9 buses and 60-foot-long S1 buses.

Then, there’s the fare hike coming July 1, which will slam paper fare card users with an extra $1 fee per ride. Metro’s helping to ease the transition by letting riders transfer up to $20 from a paper farecard to a SmarTrip card (previously the limit was $7) and putting SmarTrip dispensers in all rail stations. The 10 stations that sell the most paper fare cards will have the SmarTrip dispensers by July 1, and the rest are slated to be installed by September. And coming this fall is the change I’m most psyched for: auto reload for SmarTrip. Link it to your credit or debit card and whenever you dip below zero, you’ll get a top-up — kind of like with E-ZPass. It’s a lot to keep track of, even for someone paying attention, and most people simply aren’t.

MGM May Develop Casino in Md. Speculation grows over gambling plan for National Harbor MWi^_d]jed The developer of National Harbor is in the late stages of negotiations with MGM, one of the world’s leading gaming companies, to operate a proposed casino at its development in Prince George’s County, according to several people familiar with the talks. Milton Peterson, chairman of the Peterson Cos., said Tuesday that an announcement about a deal with a potential casino operator at

Ij_bbWJek]^I[bb Gov. Martin O’Malley may call lawmakers back in July for a special session on an expanded gambling plan that may include a Prince George’s casino, but hurdles remain:

O’Malley has indicated he will only call the special session in Annapolis if the work group reaches a consensus. The legislation is a tough sell in Maryland: A Senate-backed gambling bill died in the House on the last night of its 2012 session. (T WP)

his mixed-use development on the Potomac River was days away. He would not divulge the company but said it was a well-known player in Las Vegas and elsewhere.

Speculation has centered on MGM since Wednesday, when Peterson, one of his lobbyists and an MGM executive met at the State House in Annapolis with House

Speaker Michael Busch. MGM executives are also planning to meet Friday with Gov. Martin O’Malley and Senate President Thomas Mike Miller Jr., two sources familiar with the plans said. Still, Jon Peterson, senior vice president of the Peterson Cos., would not confirm a deal with MGM on Thursday. “We don’t have a deal or letter of intent, so there’s nothing more we can say,” he said in a statement. The plan to add a sixth casino in Maryland is vigorously opposed by the owner of Maryland Live! in Anne Arundel County, which opened this month. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

7hb_d]jed The idea of a light rail streetcar running from Baileys Crossroads through Arlington along Columbia Pike started to come into serious focus last year, with dollar figures and artist’s renditions being tossed around. But a significant number of Arlington residents are looking hard at those dollar figures, and the trolley concept, and not liking what they see. A contentious but substantive debate took place at a county meeting Tuesday night over the trolley’s cost and whether or not “articulated buses,” those buses with the rubber joint in the middle, would be the better option. “Articulated bus [is] a practical

Mayor Vincent C. Gray will reappoint Natwar M. Gandhi on Friday to an additional five-year term as D.C.’s chief financial officer, according to two city officials. The reappointment will come with only two weeks remaining in Gandhi’s current term and ends months of speculation over whether Gray, a Democrat, would stick with the self-styled “bean counter,” who has served as CFO since 2000.

Then there’s the Washington Nationals. Since the inception of professional baseball in the nation’s capital, rarely has anyone been awed by attire, an aura or play on the field. Washington’s only World Series title came in 1924. Walter Johnson won 23 games that season. The Great Depression was still years away. So embrace this, Washington. It hasn’t happened much. The first-place Yankees arrive in town Friday for a three-game series against the first-place Nationals, a team exceeding its unusually lofty expectations. The Nationals are back home from a 6-0 interleague road trip during which they swept the Red Sox and the Blue Jays. By Wednes-

Legendary franchise comes to D.C. to face hottest team in NL

day, Washington had opened up a five-game lead in the National League East. At 38-23, they have the second-best record in baseball, better than the Yankees’. They are on pace for 100 wins.

Ç?\m[]eekjj^[h[ WdZfbWoekhX[ij XWi[XWbb"m[YWd X[WjWdoXeZo$È — STEPHEN STR A SBURG, NATIONALS PITCHER WHO BEAT THE BLUE JAYS WEDNESDAY FOR HIS 8TH VICTORY.

“I think we’ve shown the baseball world what kind of team we are,” said reliever Tyler Clippard, who has converted all eight of his save opportunities. The Nationals have not been

unnerved by history. They’ve won two series against the Phillies, winners of five straight division titles, and for three days they made Fenway Park their personal playground. “We have a talent here,” righthander Stephen Strasburg told reporters Wednesday after improving his record to 8-1. “If we go out there and play our best baseball, we can beat anybody.” Walter Johnson is long gone, but they’ve got Davey Johnson, one of the modern era’s most successful managers. And they’ve got dominant starters in Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez. They’ve got steady star Ryan Zimmerman and Bryce Harper, the precocious 19-year-old who grew up dreaming of playing for the Yankees. Harp-

er’s uniform number, 34, is a tribute to Mickey Mantle’s 7 — three plus four, get it? It’s not the first time the latest incarnation of the Nationals has been in first place this far into the season. In 2005, the year baseball returned to D.C., the Nationals sat atop the standings until late July. But their season crumbled quickly after that and they finished with an 81-81 record, last in the division. Zimmerman, who was with the team in 2005, said he doesn’t foresee another such slide, but that it’s too early to celebrate. “It’s great what we’ve done,” he said. “We’re happy about it and proud of it. But we know it doesn’t mean any thing.” D E R E K T U R N E R (FOR E XPRESS)

An Unfamiliar Foe for D.C. United

Assistant coach John Hackworth, a former U.S. youth and senior national team assistant and top Union assistant under Nowak, is guiding Philadelphia in the interim. He’s looking to inspire a young team, much like Olsen did when he took over for Curt Onalfo in the middle of the 2010 MLS season. “It happens with a team, just like it happened when I was here a couple years ago,” said D.C. attacker Chris Pontius. “I don’t think it changes the way we approach the game or anything that we’re doing in the game. That’s them, and I expect them to come out fired up. But you always expect a team to come out fired up for the first 10 to 15 minutes of the game.” What remains to be seen is if there is any emotional overflow from the teams’ Open Cup match at the Maryland SoccerPlex. D.C. center back Brandon McDonald and Philadelphia center back Carlos Valdes were ejected for an altercation late in the 2-1 Union win, and the match between regional rivals contained an abundance of hard tackles. AVI CREDITOR (FOR E XPRESS)

When D.C. United kicks things off Saturday against the Philadelphia Union at PPL Park, just 11 days will have passed since the teams last faced off. But D.C. might not recognize its opponent. Philadelphia is a vastly different team than the one D.C. played on June 5 in a heated U.S. Open Cup affair. Union manager Peter Nowak (who coached D.C. United to its last MLS Cup in 2004) was fired Wednesday, and underutilized striker Danny Mwanga — the first overall pick in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft — was traded to Portland for Colombian forward Jorge Perlaza a few days prior. Given the coaching change, D.C. is expecting an emotional response from the Union, a team mired in a 2-7-2 slump to start the season. “We understand that there’s always an emotional response when

7j<kbbIjh[d]j^ While the international break might have stunted some of D.C.’s league momentum — the team sits atop the Eastern Conference standings — it also served as a chance for wounded players to get healthy. Banged-up players including Chris Pontius, above, Robbie Russell and Danny Cruz have returned from the injured list, giving coach Ben Olsen some difficult lineup choices. “We’re very healthy right now,” Olsen said. “I have a lot of options, but the important thing is the options I choose do the job on the field. It doesn’t matter how many options you have, it’s about the guys on the field doing the job.” (A.C.)

you have a new coach, in particular a coach that a team is behind,” said D.C. coach Ben Olsen. “It was going to be an emotional game regard-

less. Under Peter they played with a lot of commitment and fight. We can just expect the same thing per usual with Philadelphia.”

Italy Holds On; Irish Eliminated From Euros After all the talk about an attacking approach to football, Italy fell back to its old defensive tactics Thursday — and the price was a costly 1-1 draw with Croatia. The Italians let a first-half lead slip away and now may need help to advance to the European Championship quarterfinals. Andrea Pirlo gave the Italians the lead with a curving free kick in the 39th minute, but Mario Mandzukic was left unmarked to equalize for Croatia in the 72nd. Italy coach Cesare Prandelli was left wondering if there was a physical problem with his squad. “After an hour our physical level drops,” Prandelli said. “We’ve got

to figure out how to manage our energy in the next match. We’re lacking freshness in that phase of the match. “We [drew] with a very physical and athletic squad, but we played

much better [than Croatia].” Fernando Torres scored a goal in each half Thursday to give Spain a 4-0 win over Ireland and eliminate the Irish from the European Championship.

David Silva and substitute Cesc Fabregas also scored second-half goals as the defending champions improved to four points in Group C, the same as co-leader Croatia. Spain dominated the tempo and scoring opportunities through its quick combinations, taking 27 shots and putting the team on course for a spot in the quarterfinals. Torres, who scored in the Euro 2008 final, put Spain ahead early after dispossessing Richard Dunne before sending a shot over goalkeeper Shay Given in the fourth minute. “We wanted to win, to make a better impression than we did against Italy,” said Torres, who became Spain’s third all-time leading scorer with 30 goals in 95 appearances.

Thompson Leads Open; Tiger Lurks In Second =eb\ Any comfort Michael Thompson took looking up at the leaderboard at The Olympic Club and finally seeing his name at the top fizzled fast when he saw the player one spot below. Tiger Woods. Thompson shot a 4-under 66 in the first round of the U.S. Open on Thursday, taking a three-shot lead in the clubhouse over the hard-charging Woods and David Toms. The 2007 U.S. Amateur runnerup at Olympic Club sure played as though he knew the course, finishing with seven birdies to go with three bogeys in an aggressive and fearless round. The 27-year-old former Alabama standout still couldn’t feel satisfied with 48 holes remaining and a familiar face lurking behind in another major. “Give Tiger the spotlight,” Thompson said. “I don’t care. I’m going to go out and play my game. If I go out and putt the way I did today, I’ll be in contention.” ANTONIO GONZ ALEZ (AP)

— MONIQUE CURRIE, MYSTICS FORWARD AND BULLIS HIGH SCHOOL GRAD. NED DISHMAN/NBAE VIA GETTY IMAGES

Michael Thompson waves after making a birdie on the 18th at Olympic Thursday.

Basketball has given Washington Mystics forward Monique Currie the chance to see the world. Right now, though, no matter where the Bullis School product and her teammates play, wins are hard to come by. Washington (1-5), the loser of four straight, hosts the Indiana Fever (4-2) Friday night at the Verizon Center, then heads out for a three-game West Coast swing. If the last-place Mystics don’t find a solution to their slumbering starts, they will find themselves tracking toward a repeat of last season’s 6-28 record, dubiously achieved without Currie. The team’s second-leading scorer during the 2010 playoff campaign, Currie tore the ACL in her left knee the following January while playing internationally during the WNBA offseason. With the exception of four late-season games, all of 2011 was wiped out. The small forward began finding her basketball legs overseas.

Mystics forward Monique Currie is back after missing a year due to a 2011 knee injury.

Playing in Turkey put her game in an upright-and-ready-to-go position for the current WNBA season. “Being able to go overseas after last season really gave me the opportunity to get my game back, my jumper back,” said Currie, currently the Mystics’ third-leading scorer (10.7 points per game). “By the time I came back for training camp, I was pretty confident in where I was physically.”

Admittedly, the engaging D.C. area native is blessed her basketball career has played out locally and for teams in Russia, Poland and Israel. “I get to play at home in front of my family, my friends and for my city — or else I would never be here,” said the 29-year-old. “Who’s to say I would ever have visited these countries without basketball? It’s given me some

everlasting experiences.” The recent dour hardwood experiences stateside, for both the Mystics and their suddenly misfiring veteran, probably seem never-ending. Currie totaled only seven points in the past two games, shooting a combined 2-of-16 from the field. Her all-court best will be required against Indiana star Tamika Catchings, the WNBA’s third-leading scorer at 21.5 points per game. “We keep doing this to ourselves and we don’t have all season to learn,” Currie said. “We need to be aggressive. We need to not wait until we’re behind to start showing how we can play.” BENJAMIN STANDIG (FOR E XPRESS)

Meriweather Solidifies Role in Secondary J^[H[Zia_di The Washington Redskins’ offseason program drew to a close Thursday, and in six weeks players report for training camp. But there still are questions about the team’s secondary. Brandon Meriweather appears set to take over for the departed LaRon Landry at strong safety. But training camp figures to feature a three-way competition for the starting free safety position. Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett and defensive backs coach Raheem Morris both

spoke highly of Meriweather, who signed with Washington this offseason after a disappointing season in Chicago. Meriweather is trying to regain the two-time Pro Bowl form that he showed in New England. He said that unlike his time with the Bears, he feels comfortable with his responsibilities in Washington’s system. He is eager to prove that he remains an impact player. “I ain’t ate in like three years now, so I’m starving,” Meriweather said. The University of Miami product wouldn’t go into specifics when

asked why he didn’t fit in Chicago’s system. “Just different schemes. I don’t think every scheme is for everybody,” he said. But coach Mike Shanahan offered this: “I think Brandon Meriweather, you know, ran a system in New England that is very similar to what we’re doing, and in Chicago it was a lot different than what he has done in the past, with more of a two-deep structure and three-deep. So, I think he fits in our system a lot better than he did in Chicago and I can see that on the practice field.” MIKE JONES (THE WASHINGTON POST )

What’s the Damage? Repaisr Cost

Take steps before moving to safeguard your security deposit and avoid a nasty clash with your landlord

Making some small repairs yourself before moving out of your unit could save you in the long run. Below are samples of what Richmond, Va.-based property management company Taylor and Ayers takes out of a security deposit for typical damages.

Clean Apar tment

Before Andrew Benzer and his girlfriend, Mary Robinson, moved out of their Colu mbia Height s apa r t ment la st September, Benzer spackled, sanded and painted the small blemishes created by picture hangers. He even repainted one of the rooms, restoring it to its original color to comply with his lease. Almost a month later, Benzer, 29, and Robinson, 27, received their security deposit refund. Nearly $1,400 of their $1,950 deposit was missing. Included with the smaller-thanexpected refund was a list of charges that had been deducted from the deposit. Some were for fixes that Benzer says were needed, such as “touching up bicycle tire marks in the hallway,” while others were for repairs he had already made, like “interior painting.” “The charges were excessive and duplicitous,” Benzer says. He and Robinson later summoned the landlords to small claims court. They settled the dispute in mediation and got another $472 of their security deposit back. Security deposit disputes are some of the most common landlord-tenant conflicts in the Washington area. They’re so common that the nonprofit D.C. Tenants’ Advocacy Coalition, or TENAC (Tenac.org), says questions about security deposits are the most frequent type of complaint received on their hotline.

Security Deposit Landlords ask for a security deposit — usually the equivalent of one month’s rent — to cover damage that exceeds normal wear and tear, according to the D.C. Office of the Tenant Advocate (OTA). “Normal wear and tear” could include minor scuffs and scrapes, such as small nail holes made in walls to hang pictures, or a little wear down on carpets. “Damage” — the stuff you’ll get charged for — might include large holes in the wall, stained carpet, broken windows or garbage left behind. Of course, it’s not always that simple. “Normal wear and tear, as far as I can tell, is in the eye of the beholder,” says Jim McGrath, the chairman of TENAC. It’s wise to take steps to protect your security deposit before you move in. McGrath recommends that the tenant, the landlord and a third party walk through the unit before a move-in to document and photograph any pre-existing problems. Write everything up in a report that’s signed by both the tenant and the landlord. When the tenant moves out, compare the damage to what’s in the report. Cindy Clare, president of Kettler Management, which oversees more than 19,000 apartments, most in Northern Virginia, says her company tries to be reasonable when differentiating between “wear and tear” and “damage.” “We’re talking about stains, burn marks and pet odors,” Clare says, “not small little marks, but large visible stains that cannot be

removed.” A renter likely won’t foot the bill for a spill that can be cleaned easily, but if the carpet needs to be replaced, the cost will come out of their deposit. Before you move out, repair any large holes or marks in the walls. “Something that’s visible while standing in the middle of the room should be spackled,” Clare says. In the District, landlords are required to return security deposits within 45 days of apartment vacancy (provided the tenant gave the landlord adequate notice — generally 30 days). But what if you follow all of this advice and your landlord still doesn’t return your deposit — or withholds a significant portion? D.C. tenants can file a petition with the rent administrator, which will trigger either a hearing or mediation. Landlords in D.C. who are found to be in the wrong could pay up to three times the amount of the deposit, says Dennis Taylor, OTA’s general counsel. OTA recommends taking this route if you want to reclaim the security deposit plus interest. (You’re entitled to interest on a security deposit if you have lived in the apartment for more than a year.) However, if you want just the security deposit back, file a claim in D.C. Small Claims Court. Nikki, 22, went to small claims court after she arrived at a Capitol Hill apartment she’d rented sightunseen to find floor tiles coated in a black film, rotting floorboards and cockroaches. Nine days after moving in, Nikki, who asked that her last name be withheld because of ongoing litigation with her landlord, left for

Who You Gonna Call? Laws that govern security deposits are similar in Maryland, Virginia and D.C., but there are minor variations. If a dispute arises, contact your local authorities:

D.C. renters who need assistance with the return of their security deposits can contact the D.C. Office of the Tenant Advocate at 202-7196560 or by visiting Ota.dc.gov. Submit a request for assistance via the “Ask the Director” link. To learn more about D.C. laws visit Dcregs.dc.gov. Maryland residents with questions should contact the Maryland District Court Self-Help Center, which is staffed by Maryland Legal Aid: Mdcourts.gov/district, or 410-260-1392. For a rundown of Maryland laws, check out Peoples-law.org. Virginia tenants can call the Virginia Office of Consumer Affairs: 1-800-552-9963 or 804-786-2042.

a hotel. She emailed her landlord and requested the return of the $400 security deposit and first month’s rent of $1,650. The landlord refused, Nikki says, so she took the case to small claims court, where a hearing is scheduled for this month. “I k now I’m going to w in because it’s ridiculous,” says Nikki of her experience. “The next place I go, I’ll spend the extra money to look at it in advance.” LEA R ADICK (FOR E XPRES S)

The building — a functional brick complex with plenty of parking and a roomy lobby — is a bit generic but has its perks, like an outdoor pool and playground. Inside, the 436-square-foot studio has carpeted floors, spacious closets and a small kitchen nook (counter space is lacking). The location is a driver’s dream — the complex is right off Columbia Pike and a quick ride into downtown D.C. There are buses to Pentagon and Pentagon City Metro stations. (LISTED BY JGB)

Joel Stein DAD, WRITER, WANNABE MACHO MAN Some men find out that a son is on the way and order cigars. When Time magazine staff writer Joel Stein learned that he and his wife were having a boy, he had a panic attack, fearing that he wouldn’t be able to teach his offspring about guy stuff like camping and tools. His book “Man Made: A Stupid Quest for Masculinity” ($27, Grand Central) details Stein’s efforts to get macho by driving a Lamborghini, learning to throw a baseball and attempting to complete U.S. Marines’ boot-camp activities. Why did the thought of having a son panic you? When they told me that there was a penis involved, I instantly just pictured all the things that I was bad at as a kid, and having to do that with a boy. He’s going to expect these

things of me, and I’m not going to be able to deliver. And I thought, “I can’t be that kind of a parent.” How’d you come up with your list of manly activities to do? I eliminated all the things that could be fun, even though I’d never done them before, like spring break or being a roadie for Kid Rock. I wanted to do the things that were the most challenging to me personally, that would push my boundaries the most. And I just needed to learn how to be a basic man; I just needed to learn how to hit a ball. Many adventures don’t turn out as you expect. You go turkey hunting and don’t get to shoot anything. Was that a letdown? I was disappointed that I didn’t kill a turkey. But I was glad that

him when he thinks he’s coming to have sex. Many men you met had a strong sense of control. Were you surprised to learn what a manly trait that was? That repressive self-control is a manly trait I like. It’s very British, sipping tea while the bombs fall, keep calm and carry on. But America is very rooted in that Scotch Irish, Sir Walter Scott, HatfieldsMcCoys kind of anger and revenge, that gangster rap and “Sopranos” manliness that’s all about rage and expressing that rage immediately. You’re not really a fan of watching or playing sports. Did you gain any new appreciation for them from your research? I did gain an appreciation for football. I can watch it now with other guys and not be bored. I make an effort to read about basic football stuff in the paper now. I can’t start watching every Sunday; that’s a big commitment. But I can name several quarterbacks, or at least name several teams. BETH LUBERECKI (FOR E XPRESS)

SUGAR AND FIRE have long been

summer lovers (e.g. s’mores). Williams-Sonoma’s new barbecue sauces ($15, Williams-Sonoma stores or Williams-sonoma.com) do a similar sweet-on-heat hookup, with blends like Cherry Chipotle and Spicy Root Beer spiked with molasses. Still, using them on ribs or chicken won’t negate your need for roasted marshmallows after dinner.

AN INVITE TO YOUR PAL’S Rehoboth Beach share — or artisan-everything dinner party — merits a hostess/host gift nicer than a six-pack. Guatemalan embroidered hand towels ($32 each, Proper Topper, 1350 Connecticut Ave. NW; 202-842-3055) boast pleasing not-too-trad, not-too-rad looks. And if no one likes you, they’d look worldly in your own loo.

dissection laboratory? Celine? Gucci? If one wishes to be outrageously lighthearted, maybe the JC de Castelbajac? Though perhaps the best would be the Gareth Pugh, if only for the effect it will produce in other students. Of the course, this point is moot, because aspiring doctors no longer wear decent clothing underneath their lab coats, but rather choose to dress themselves in the wholly functional, wholly drab, wholly shapeless scrubs, the sort of pajama-looking thingy favored by mental patients everywhere. And yet, as the Manolo’s friend has rightly noted, there is still room for expression below the ankles, in the choice of shoes. Here is the Callie from Hive & Honey ($80-$90, Piperlime.com), the reasonably priced boot that will look great under the scrubs. Just what the fashion doctor ordered.

Kristen PageKirby’s Reelist column will return next week.

— TOM CRUISE TELLS RYAN SEACREST ABOUT HOW HIS DAUGHTER, SURI, REACTED TO SEEING HIM IN HIS STACEE JA X X MAKEUP.

<[[biB_a[j^[ MehijJ_c[ The campy musical ‘Rock of Ages’ goes on and on and on <_bcH[l_[m “Rock of Ages,” the hit Broadway jukebox musical set to toe-tapping 1980s power ballads and hair-band anthems, takes place in the proud years of analog, when bands could still be discovered in the fetid clubs along Los Angeles’s Sunset Strip. The fact that this affectionately mocking homage to acts such

as Journey, Guns N’ Roses and Pat Benatar comes by way of AutoTuned singers such as Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta and Tom Cruise makes “Rock of Ages” an unusually enervating experience. Cruise dons butt-less chaps, a fur coat and sexually suggestive tattoos to play Stacee Jaxx, the aging rock star who pounces seductively from the shadows in “Rock of Ages.” Like everything else in the movie, Stacee is a mash-up — in this case, between the Scarlet Pimpernel and Axl Rose — whose presence at a Sunset club called the Bourbon

Room is supposed to bring the bar out of financial insolvency. It’s into this maelstrom of caricatured mayhem and excess that a wide-eyed singer named Sherrie (Hough) arrives one night, fresh off the bus from Oklahoma. Change the point of origin, and Sherrie’s arrival in L.A. is beat-for-beat the same as Christina Aguilera’s character’s in “Burlesque,” in which Hough had a supporting role and that, along with “Footloose,” provides the narrative structure for “Rock of Ages.” As Sherrie befriends a sweet bar back named Drew (Boneta), a bunch

of censorious squares are gathering to harsh the kids’ rebellious vibe and shut down the Bourbon. Directed by Adam Shankman — whose “Hairspray” balanced camp and historic meaning with bracing exuberance — “Rock of Ages” gets too mired in plotty cul de sacs, manufactured setbacks and numbers that are all staged as show-stoppers. In the words of the Journey song that serves as a climactic singalong, it goes on and on and on and on. ANN HORNADAY (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Lola (Greta Gerwig) is going through a tough time in “Lola Versus.”

BebWL[hikiH “Lola Versus” follows Lola (Greta Gerwig) in the year after her boyfriend calls off their impending wedding. Cut from the same cloth as the HBO series “Girls,” the movie features similarly narcissistic 20-something characters, but this time they’re in Manhattan’s West Village and the High Line. The whining about their lives, though, is all the same.

Father and son: Adam Sandler, right, and Andy Samberg, left, in “That’s My Boy.”

IWdZb[hÊi =hem_d] FW_di <_bcH[l_[m To say Adam Sandler’s new movie isn’t as bad as his last is like saying a dental filling isn’t as bad as a root canal. Neither will kill you, and they may not hurt that much. But there’s no way you want those sharp metal objects shoved in your mouth. So why do we keep letting Sandler shovel something else down our throats? Next to last year’s abysmal “Jack and Jill,” his latest, “That’s My Boy,” looks almost inspired. Yet this father-son story is just more of the same gross, lazy comedy that Sandler’s been doing for years. The idea behind the movie isn’t half bad and provides some parallels to Sandler, a guy who’s made a career out of stunted adolescence. He plays a middle-aged loser who was in his early teens when he knocked up his teacher and has been the world’s most infantile dad. You know the formula: Sandler’s Donny Berger has to grow up in some fashion by the end of “That’s My Boy,” while his estranged son, Todd (Andy Samberg), must come to appreciate the unique upbringing received at the hands of his dad. With some thought and effort, “That’s My Boy” could be fresher, smarter and much, much funnier, while still retaining all the grossout gags and idiocy that Sandler loves. DAVID GERMAIN (AP)

An Internet joke leads to the offbeat ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’

COURTESY OF FILMDISTRICT AND BIG BEACH

SONY PICTURES

C[Wd_d]<hecWC[c[ <_bcH[l_[m “Safety Not Guaranteed” takes its title and theme from an Internet meme that made the rounds a few years ago: a purported newspaper classified ad seeking a partner in time travel. “Must bring your own weapons,” read the original ad, which was written as a joke by an editor with too much time on his hands. “Safety not guaranteed.” There is a real danger in the movie based on that gag, but not the kind the ad suggests. The risk of the quirky romcom — which revolves around the efforts of a Seattle magazine writer and two interns to profile the guy who placed the ad — is from cuteness overload.

“Parks and Recreation’s” Aubrey Plaza, left, shines in “Safety Not Guaranteed.”

real agenda for the assignment is to hook up with an old flame. The central story, which focuses on whether Kenneth is delusional or not, is actually the least interesting thing about the movie. “Safety Not Guaranteed” is most vibrant at its edges, in the way that the characters interact with each other while waiting for something to happen. MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Fortunately, the film’s engaging and offbeat cast prevents that from happening. Anchoring the story are Mark Duplass as Kenneth, the possibly paranoid loner who claims to have invented a time machine, and Aubrey Plaza as Darius, the intern who gains Kenneth’s trust and who, over the course of the film, questions her original assumptions about his sanity. Jake M. Johnson is suitably sleazy as Darius’ boss, Jeff, whose

7Bel[9ecfb[n Very little is simple in the indie drama ‘Your Sister’s Sister’ <_bcH[l_[m In 2009, actress and filmmaker Lynn Shelton made the breakout film “Humpday,” a comedy-drama about two male friends exploring the boundaries of love and sexuality. But in a film that explored those dynamics with exceptional insight and candor, the filmmaker also managed to depict the dynamics of a modern heterosexual marriage. In “Your Sister’s Sister,” Shelton’s highly anticipated follow-up, she once again exhibits the tonal control and sensitivity that were on view in “Humpday.” She’s teamed again with “Humpday” co-star Mark

OekhI_ij[hÊi I_ij[hH Director: Lynn Shelton Stars: Mark Duplass, Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt In a Nutshell: Iris invites her friend Jack to stay at her family’s island getaway after the death of his brother. Once there, Jack’s drunken encounter with Hannah, Iris’ sister, kicks off a revealing stretch of days.

Duplass, whose genial, slightly pasty “everyman” quality perfectly suits her relaxed, loose-limbed style. Here he plays a guy named Jack who, as the movie opens, delivers a hostile eulogy at a gathering two years after his brother’s funeral. Alarmed, Iris (Emily Blunt), Jack’s best friend and his late brother’s girlfriend, offers him a getaway at her family’s week-

end place on an island. Once Jack arrives, he’s met with the unexpected company of Iris’ half-sister, Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt), whose initial frostiness is melted considerably after a shared bottle of tequila. That thaw leads to complications that only become more fraught once Iris surprises them with her own visit. Very little is simple in “Your Sister’s Sister” — not the emotions, the naturalistic tone or the unstudied, easygoing performances. But the film’s pleasures are.

FbWo_d] BATTLESHIP (PG-13, 131 minutes) Battleship — Hasbro’s venerable game of naval strategy in which players use a combination of guesswork and logic to deduce the location of their opponents’ ships — isn’t exactly known for its thrilla-minute narrative complexity. Fear not. “Battleship” is an invigorating blast of cinematic adrenaline. Deftly directed by Peter Berg, from a script by brothers Eric and Jon Hoeber that adds muscle, sinew and heart to the skeletal source material, the resulting film is an enormously entertaining amusement-park ride. Yes, it’s a bit preposterous, not to mention loud. But it’s also brisk and viscerally thrilling, with a genuine surprise or two — including a plot twist that manages to brilliantly incorporate the game’s essential DNA of blindly shooting at invisible targets. M.O. BEL AMI (R, 102 minutes) “Twilight’s” Robert Pattinson portrays a vampire of a different sort in “Bel Ami,” a costume drama adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s 1885 novel that depicts betrayal and exploitation flying in every direction. It’s not that the movie is dull. There’s plenty of sex and intrigue in this story about a military veteran who uses his ability to seduce women to engineer his rise from poverty to a position of power in Paris. It’s just that Pattinson’s performance is so enervated that his Georges Duroy comes across as something of a cipher. He’s not quite alive, yet also clearly not dead, given the amount of sex he has. He’s undead, or at least uninteresting. M.O. THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (PG-13, 122 minutes) A blandly middling crowd-pleaser, this film follows a group of seven English retirees who have taken up residence in a seedy Indian boarding house. The entertainment is directly proportional to the appeal of each character. At the delightful end of the spectrum is Judi Dench’s Evelyn, a recent widow whose loneliness and hardwon wisdom is rendered in an affectingly nuanced performance. At the other end is Maggie Smith’s Muriel, a nakedly racist coot rendered in a strident, one-note caricature. Some viewers may respond to the film’s message that it’s never too late for love. Others may groan at its reliance on paleolithic vaudeville humor. M.O. DARK SHADOWS (PG-13, 112 minutes) Tim Burton’s retread of the 1970s daytime

goth-opera — starring Johnny Depp — is depressing on myriad levels. It doesn’t know where it wants to dwell: in the eerie, subversive penumbra suggested by its title or in playful, go-for-broke camp. Depp comes up with a sonorously memorable voice for Barnabas, beginning with a narrated preamble explaining how the Collins family settled in Maine, made a fortune in fishing, built a soaring

manor of Collinwood and suffered tragedy at the hands of a witchy servant girl named Angelique. The ribald humor that runs through “Dark Shadows” will most likely go over the heads of youngsters. But surely no one, regardless of age, will buy the third-act twist that occurs in the middle of the mayhem that Angelique brings down on Collinwood. A.H. THE DICTATOR (R, 83 minutes) “In

loving memory of Kim Jong-Il,” reads an epigraph at the beginning of Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest send-up of political manners and American exceptionalism. It’s true that the character Cohen plays, an aggressively bearded tyrant named Admiral General Aladeen who has ruled the North African country of Wadiya since he was 7, embodies all of the absurdities of despotic power. As portrayed by Cohen,

the egotistical, belligerent Aladeen bumbles through everything — from sexual encounters with paid starlets to the executions he orders for the most innocuous perceived slight — like Uday, Qusay, Larry, Moe and Curly combined. Even amid the hit-and-miss broadsides and laugh-free longueurs that make up most of “The Dictator,” Cohen’s acute hypocrisy Continued on page 28

detector keeps on ticking, if barely. A.H. FOR GREATER GLORY(R, 143 minutes) An epic dramatization of a little-known chapter of Mexican history called the Cristiada — in which the country’s Roman Catholics rebelled against a government crackdown on religion — “For Greater Glory” is at times so heavy-handed that the movie itself seems at war. It should be noted that the film actually succeeds on several levels. Most significantly, it brings to light an important event that is not typically taught in history class. Unsurprisingly, martyrdom bookends the tale, beginning with the hanging of a priest (Peter O’Toole) and ending with the torture and execution of Jose Luiz Sanchez Del Rio (Mauricio Kuri), an angelic 13-year-old boy. The real-life Jose was beatified — the first step toward sainthood — by the Vatican in 2005. M.O. THE HUNGER GAMES (PG-13, 142 minutes) This adaptation of the hit young adult novel centers on grievous violence and children, who, in author Suzanne Collins’ floridly postapocalyptic future, are subjected to an annual ritual wherein they murder one another as part of a nationwide reality show. That perverse dystopia is brought faithfully, if unspectacularly, to life by director Gary Ross. If the series’ legions of fans miss a detail here or a subplot there, they’ll still rec-

ognize its bones and sinew, especially in Jennifer Lawrence’s eagle-eyed heroine, Katniss Everdeen. Lawrence is never less than grounded and believable as a young woman forced by circumstance to assume wisdom far beyond her years. A.H. HYSTERIA (R, 95 minutes) Set in Victorian England, the loosely fact-based “Hysteria” is billed as the story of the invention of the electric vibrator. Physician Mortimer Granville really did invent the appliance, and it really was once used as a therapeutic treatment for a number of maladies that were imagined to be caused by a malfunctioning of the female anatomy. The film also is a comedy about the discovery of the female orgasm. In an age of medical leeches, it was thought impossible for a woman to experience sexual pleasure without penetration. Love interest Charlotte (Maggie Gyllenhaal) knows better. She runs a kind of soup kitchen/homeless shelter and has befriended prostitutes. M .O. MADAGASCAR 3: EUROPE’S MOST WANTED (PG, 93 minutes) The third outing in the popular series of animated adventures about Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo may be the best of the bunch. To escape from Monaco — where our heroes have traveled from Africa searching for the airplane they hope will take them home — an order is given to shake the Monte Carlo animal control officer who is determined to stop them from leaving. The film may be the best use of 3-D animation we’ve seen since

That growth on Tommy Lee Jones’ arm gives “Men in Black 3” a gritty authenticity. “Up.” Structured around a prolonged yet picturesque chase that takes Alex and company from Monaco to France to Italy to England, it’s a story that lends itself naturally to visual-enhancement technology. A parade of laughs? That, you expect. What’s really surprising about “Madagascar 3” is just how moving it ultimately is, largely because of the emotionally engaging character animation. M.O. MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS (PG-13, 143 minutes) “The Avengers” has been executed with all the reverence the superfans demand. The performances are so well-pitched that it’s tempting to overpraise the good but not great movie that surrounds them. Joss Whedon seems to have tamped down his instincts

to play up irony and camp. Instead, he focuses on simply making the characters legible and the story easy to follow. Bidding goodbye to at least one beloved character and saying hello to another in a tantalizing closing-credits hint, he leaves us wanting more — which, for now at least, is undoubtedly the right play. A.H. MEN IN BLACK 3 (PG-13, 106 minutes) There are a couple of real pleasures in the third installment of the sci-fi adventure-comedy series about cops policing a shadow world of aliens living among us. The most satisfying is the setup: In a time-travel scenario, Agent J must go back to 1969 to prevent the murder of his partner, Agent K. But the best thing about the setup is that it affords the film an opportunity to make fun of the ’60s. Until Agent J “time jumps” into the past, however, the movie feels flat-footed and lazy, reprising old jokes and sight gags from the two earlier films. Adding to the list of misfires is Emma Thompson as Agent O, the head of the M.I.B. agency. Seemingly intended to add spice, the actress is hopelessly wasted. M.O. MOONRISE KINGDOM (PG-13, 93 minutes) “Moonrise Kingdom” opens with no music — just the sound of raindrops falling on the roof of a preternaturally cozy house, which the camera gently leads the audience through. As explained by a nameless narrator played by Bob Balaban, “Moonrise Kingdom” will chronicle the adventures of Sam and Suzy, each of whom is woefully misunderstood by the adults in his or her life. As he’s done in all of his films, Anderson confects a distinctive mix of arch humor and solemnity in “Moonrise Kingdom,”

[dj[hjW_dc[djbeeaekj in which Sam and Suzy confront death, abandonment and burgeoning sexuality in very real terms, but in which either can also be struck by lightning without suffering anything worse than a pair of sooty glasses. A.H. PEACE, LOVE AND MISUNDERSTANDING (R, 92 minutes) The combined acting muscle of Jane Fonda, Catherine Keener and Elizabeth Olsen — playing three generations of women in a fractious family — is not enough to lift “Peace, Love and Misunderstanding” above the level of comfortable mediocrity. Set in a Woodstock, N.Y., that seems more like a hippie Oz than any place that actually exists in the real world, the dramatic comedy centers on matriarch Grace (Fonda), a graying free spirit and freelance pot dealer who is visited by her uptight lawyer daughter, Diane (Keener), when Diane’s husband suddenly announces he wants a divorce. It is little more than a cheesy setup for the kind of pat reconciliation that occurs in any given episode of a television sitcom. M.O. PINK RIBBONS, INC. (Unrated, 98 minutes) “Pink Ribbons, Inc.” was made long before the scandal involving Susan G. Komen for the Cure and its off-then-on support of Planned Parenthood, which makes Lea Pool’s information-packed documentary about the malign nexus of breast cancer research and corporate marketing uncannily prescient and timely. Although Pool interviews Nancy Brinker of the Komen Foundation, “Pink Ribbons, Inc.” is clearly not meant to be a balanced, she-said, she-said portrait of a contested issue. Rather, it’s a well-argued polemic that, despite being one-sided, has loads of useful information to share. A.H. PROMETHEUS (R, 119 minutes) The biggest surprise about “Prometheus” might be just how unoriginal it is, given Ridley Scott’s track record as a genre game-changer. Visually impressive and featuring one or two breakout performances, this anticlimactic exercise too often plays as though it has been cobbled together from archetypes, imagery and tropes from countless other movies. We meet the principal players: Charlie Holloway and Elizabeth Shaw, archeologists who are leading a group of explorers in the year 2089 when they happen upon a cave of futuristic dreams. When the action picks up a few years later, Holloway, Shaw and their ragtag team have boarded a spacecraft named Prometheus, which, under the sponsorship of Weyland Industries, is taking them to an undisclosed location and, presumably, to the origin

of the human species itself. A.H. SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN (PG-13, 127 minutes) “Snow White and the Huntsman” has everything you remember from the classic fairy tale, plus a heck of a lot you don’t. Overlong, overcrowded, overstimulating and with an over-the-top performance by Charlize Theron as the evil queen Ravenna, the movie is a virtual orchard of toxic

excess, starting with the unnecessarily sprawling cast of characters. Why is this movie even called “Snow White and the Huntsman”? As the man sent to capture Snow White (Kristen Stewart) and bring her back so that Ravenna can chow down on the heroine’s still-beating heart, Chris Hemsworth is no more important to the story than, say, the queen’s creepy brother, Finn. M.O.

THE INTOUCHABLES (R, 119 minutes) A box-office smash in France, “The Intouchables” is a feel-good movie about a feel-bad subject: quadriplegia. The fact-based story, which tracks the relationship between Philippe (Francois Cluzet), a white millionaire paralyzed in a paragliding accident, and Driss (Omar Sy), the black hustler who becomes his live-in caregiver, neatly avoids the

mess and stress of the subject. The lens through which it was filmed may be too rose-colored for some people’s taste, but the window into this strange and touching friendship between two very different men is crystal clear. M.O.

Last year, Steven Spiel/0&& berg produced two science-fiction fantasies for television, “Terra Nova” and “Falling Skies.” Fox’s “Terra Nova,” the more anticipated and expensive of the two, fell by the wayside while TNT’s enormously popular “Falling Skies” is now entering its second season. For the uninitiated, “Falling Skies” follows a ragtag army of human survivors mounting a tenacious insurgency against a cruel, technologically superior alien force. There are specialeffects depictions of spaceships IKD

and critters, but the real joy of “Falling Skies” is its inventive, old-school way of using locations to evoke a sense of doom. Toss a few burned-out cars around an abandoned strip mall and you’re halfway to creating an end-of-theworld atmosphere. Noah Wyle stars as Tom Mason, a former college history professor turned rebel-patriot. His knowledge of military and diplomatic history as well as the show’s Bostonarea setting connects these freedom fighters to the men of Lexington and Concord. Like the classic 1950s sci-fi movies that clearly inspired Spielberg, “Falling Skies” can be appreciated on several levels. On the surface, it’s a shoot-em-up thrill ride. But dig deeper and you reach undercurrents of popular dread.

“In ‘Game of Thrones,’ political figures’ careers don’t usually end in voluntary retirement. A newly discovered Easter egg in the HBO series’ first season serves as a reminder of how much more dangerous it is to seek the iron throne than the White House.” — AARON COUCH AT HOLLYWOOD REPORTER.COM reacts to finding out that a model of George W. Bush’s head appears on a spike in several scenes in Season 1 of the HBO show. The producers have since apologized for the incident, claiming it was an accident.

“I think she was compelled to say something because ballerinas are almost as important to young girls as Princesses — so I can see why Rhimes might think it important to include diversity for such an aspirational role.” — CORYNNE AT THATBLACKGIRLSITE.COM understands why Shonda Rhimes — creator of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice” — tweeted “Hey @abcfBunheads: really?

Fill in each column, row and 3x3 box with the digits 1 through 9 without repeating any. The twist in Samurai Sudoku is that the digits that appear in the overlapping boxes must work for both puzzles. A piece of advice to get you started: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t focus on completing one grid at a time.

Tom Cruise won’t be having any more children, according to an interview he gave to People magazine. “I’m so happy with three,” he said, referencing his daughters Suri, 6, and Bella, 19, and his son, Connor, 17. Cruise is soon to turn 50, and says he’ll spend the birthday with his family. He adopted Connor and Bella with ex-wife Nicole Kidman and is still married to Suri’s mother, actress Katie Holmes. Two years ago, Holmes told Marie Claire magazine that she’d be open to having more children, but that she wanted to wait a while. (E XPRESS)

Oil drillers describe themselves as “Xenaphobic,” confuse everyone else.

‘Fly’: Metaphor For Tax Evasion Rapper R. Kelly has failed to pay $4.8 million in back taxes, according to TMZ.com. He’s been underpaying the government since 2005, the IRS alleged in documents filed by the agency. A representative says he is “in the process of working it out with the government” and plans to pay all the back taxes

TV star Lucy Lawless has pleaded guilty to trespassing after a late-February arrest during a Greenpeace protest action, according to E! News.

Cox can’t believe nobody’s thought of a better title for “Cougar Town” yet.

Courteney Cox and David Arquette have filed for divorce on the same day, according to People magazine. Their papers, which both went in June 8, give the same reason for the breakup (irreconcilable differences) and both seek joint custody of their daughter, 8-year-old Coco. Cox plans to drop “Arquette” from her legal name as well. Neither party has engaged a lawyer, and Cox has described Arquette as her “best friend.” (EXPRESS)
