Zimmerman trial turns spotlight on another Florida self-defense case

Date: 07/19/2013

Calvin's Commentary : If every thing is absolutely true in the following article, then surely the black on black crime discussed below is a travesty of justice as Jesse Jackson declares. If every thing is absolutely true in the following article, then I agree with Jesse Jackson (not quite everything however, for example, his rhetoric about the injustice of the Florida Justice Syste ...

Who declared this the summer of the animated snails? In Twentieth Century Fox's "Epic," a snail and slug duo stole the spotlight from the human characters, even the Beyoncé-voiced nature queen.   The end credits of Pixar's "Monsters University" features not the movie's main characters but a cute snail coda.  And now DreamWorks'"Turbo," one of this year's best family films, gives racing snails cen ...

Richard Dawkins Plays God, the Video

Date: 06/19/2013

As a defender of atheism, Richard Dawkins has publicly declared that religion is the "root of all evil," which became the title of his first big television hit in the UK, broadcast in 2006. Its follow-up, in 2007, allowed me to meet him in person. He invited me to answer a few questions on camera, and I did. The resulting video footage has just emerged - leaked by an unknown source - and can be ...

Jurassic Park 3D

Date: 04/04/2013

Back in 1993, what was astonishing in "Jurassic Park" was the special effects that seemed to bring dinosaurs back to life.  Two decades later, rediscovering Steven Spielberg's mastery of cinematic storytelling is the best reason to go see it again. It is back in theaters with the best 3D conversion I've seen, avoiding the cheesy Viewmaster effect too often the result of adding 3D effects after a ...
