To say this movie is merely a “masterpiece” is doing it a disservice. To lump it in with all the other movies that are just great is unfair.
SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN transcends its medium and tap dances straight into your heart. It's a film you can watch on a cold night and feel it flush your face with warmth. It’s a song you can sing when rain is pouring down on you and you couldn't care less because you're in love.
This isn't one of those classic movies you have to see because it's “important” and your viewing experience will feel anything but scholastic. You need to see this movie because YOU NEED TO SEE THIS MOVIE.

Jay Brandon is a successful attorney and a prolific, award-winning mystery novelist. His novel Shadow Night's Mate depicts Jack Driscoll, a member of a shadowy group known as The Circle. Its members have stealthily shaped America’s foreign and domestic policies for over two centuries.
Among their other triumphs, the Circle brought down world Communism. But they operate through suggestion and subtle influence, and are never overt.... But the Circle has been broken. The country is under a bizarre nanotech attack from ... very rich terrorists? Space invaders? Meanwhile, Europe is full of Jack look-alikes intent on putting a price on his head, the President intends to withdraw all American forces from everywhere, and a major peace conference is about to become a bloodbath. And then there’s this girl ...
Along the way readers will discover some of the “real history” of America, including why Lee chose Gettysburg, why Franklin Roosevelt had to run for a third and fourth term in office, and why Tom Hanks’ becoming a movie star was one of the Circle’s greatest failures.

He co-wrote and starred with Toby Keith in the feature film Beer For My Horses.
Mr. Fox is a very clever fox. But oftentimes, it is the cleverest of foxes that makes the greatest enemies. Composed by Opera San Antonio’s Artistic Director Tobias Picker, Fantastic Mr. Fox chronicles a gang of woodland creatures as they attempt to outwit three very brutish farmers. Picker was commissioned by the Roald Dahl Foundation to compose the music for this live action spectacle in 1998 (over 10 years before Wes Anderson’s film made Mr. Fox famous!). Tuesday’s performance is Opera San Antonio’s inaugural offering at the Tobin.
For this years 28th Annual Fall Home and Garden Show, there will be not only dynamic guests, but also a variety of do-it-yourself concepts and ideas for your own designer needs. Bring the whole family because there is something for everyone.
On first listen, the two most recent singles released by folksy Swiss metallurgists Eluveitie seem to come from two bands that wouldn’t even tour together. “The Call of the Mountains” sounds as if the Corrs came back with badass tattoos and “King” is heavier-than-thou doom-gaze, at least till the bagpipes kick in. In the context of the album, they’re part of a larger song cycle incorporating Celtic mythology and traditional instruments (like violins, the hurdy gurdy and uilleann pipes) into metal heavy enough to befit a band with a name taken from ancient Etruscan graffiti.
If you ever wished Steve Earle had never discovered politics and remained true to hard-biting country rock, then Chris Knight’s your man. The 54-year-old Kentuckian writes Gothic-tinged country rock as raw emotionally as it is sonically. Knight’s slices of rustic reality are pitted with hard times and ill will, with guitars chomping like old school outlaws. A latecomer to the music business (he’d been in mining), Knight made his debut in ’98 and released six albums the next decade. On 2012’s fine Little Victories, Knight sketches a world of incipient dread and self-reliance in sparse, frank language. On “Out of This Hole,” he sings, “I’m digging myself out of this hole; they say it can’t be done, but what do they know?” With John Baumann.
