  • Movie Review: 'Dark Knight' doesn't deliver

    It’s entirely possible that I’ve had my fill of superhero movies this summer.
    After all, I’ve seen both “The Avengers” (fun and entertaining) and “The Amazing Spider-Man” (better than the other recent Spidey incarnation) since school let out.
    So maybe, just maybe, I caught “The Dark Knight Rises” with superhero burnout — kind of like trying to stuff that last turkey sandwich into your craw five days after Thanksgiving.
    But of the final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, I have this to say: “meh.”

  • Slipknot creates a little Mayhem

    I’ve been to many concerts: country, heavy metal, blues and even a few rap concerts. I like almost all types of music and typically enjoy seeing groups perform live.
    Despite the various shows I’ve seen, I had never been to a music festival until the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival came to Albuquerque. I wasn’t quite sure how long the festival would last, or exactly what to expect. I did know this: in addition to the main stage at the Hard Rock Pavilion, there would be two additional stages on which various bands would perform.

  • Mariah Carey joins 'American Idol' as new judge--Video Extra


    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Mariah Carey will join "American Idol" as a judge next season, Fox announced Monday, bringing her star power to the show that remains a ratings leader but has seen its viewership and pop culture status diminish.

    "I am so excited to be joining 'Idol,'" said Carey, addressing the Television Critics Association via Fox entertainment chief Kevin Reilly's cell phone, which he put on speaker for the hotel ballroom meeting.

  • It’s boot scootin' boogie time

    The Texas country-dance band the Derailers will play Friday at Entrada Business Park as part of the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series.
    Not only will it be Holiday Inn Express and LA Food Co-op Night, but also KTAOS FM 101.9 will be there and Deborah and Russ Gordon will celebrate her 38th wedding anniversary.
    “I’m gonna help her celebrate since I was there in Petaluma, Calif., 38 years ago,” Gordon said. I remember that day very well and I also remember Aug. 21, 2009.”
    On Aug. 21, 2009 the Derailers last played Los Alamos. According to Gordon, they put on a great concert, but at 9:15 p.m. the band said they would play their last song.

  • New Spidey better than recent trilogy

    For those who believe that Hollywood is out of ideas, that belief was no doubt steel-belt reinforced by the July 4 release of “The Amazing Spider-Man.”
    I certainly questioned the wisdom of doing a reboot of a franchise that was only five years removed from a successful incarnation with Sam Raimi’s trilogy.
    In fact, it’s rumored that Raimi, who directed all three films, inadvertently caused the reboot by refusing to do a fourth Spider-Man film — it’s also believed that the star of those films, Tobey Maguire, wasn’t interested, either.

  • ‘Maometto II’ is spot on

    In his program notes, Philip Gossett refers to Rossini’s “Maometto II” as “one of the greatest serious operas written during the 19th century.” After having seen the Santa Fe Opera’s performance Saturday, one is inclined to believe him.
    From start to finish, this opera is a masterpiece, designed to show off a group of glorious voices, well-written choruses and, of course, the characteristic Rossini overture.
    From the conductor to the orchestra, to the singers, to the staging and costumes, this production gets everything right and shows the incredible attention to detail an audience expects from the SFO.
