CU brings ‘Bill, the Galactic Hero’ to the screen

By Michael J. Casey
French critic and filmmaker François Truffaut famously pointed out that it was impossible to make an anti-war movie because, “to show something is to ennoble it.” Cox and company subvert this dilemma by making combat sloppy and comical.

Movies

Century Boulder will be streaming a live RiffTrax performance from Nashville where the lads will skewer the bejeezus out of Santa Claus, a dubbed 1959 Mexican film about Saint Courtesy of RiffTrax Nick doing battle with Lucifer in outer space. So nothing ripe for parody there.

Clark Terry & Justin Kauflin ‘Keep On Keepin’ On’

Born in St. Louis, Mo., “a trumpet player’s town,” on December 14, 1920, Terry fashioned his first trumpet from scraps found at the local junkyard. But from those humble beginnings he went on to play with Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk and so on.

Three came back

‘The Best Years of Our Lives’ and the returning soldier

By Michael J. Casey
While they return home conquering heroes, it gets them little more than a pat on the back. Al returns to the bank and Fred takes up his old position at the soda shop. It does not go well for either. Al starts hitting the bottle and Fred is fired when he gets into a fistfight with a customer who casually remarks that the soldiers fought the wrong war.
