Play it again, Sam: Inside the MSO and Riverside's showing of "Casablanca"

Published April 17, 2015

The Riverside's distant past will become the present as the legendary theater will play host to two screenings of the beloved 1942 classic "Casablanca" Friday and Saturday night. And to complete the blast to the past vibe of the event, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra will perform Max Steiner's famous score alongside the movie.

Indie horror hit "It Follows" creepily chronicles the terror of growing up

Published April 13, 2015

For 100 minutes, writer-director David Robert Mitchell's breakout indie horror flick "It Follows" manages to maintain a continuous feeling of impending, skin-shivering dread.

And as the famous phrase goes, revenge is a dish best served six times and mercilessly. Or something like that.

Even with Ferrell and Hart, "Get Hard" only dishes out soft laughs

Published April 7, 2015

There's a glimmer of what Adam McKay and company's usual comedic mix of awareness and absurdity are trying to do with the borderline questionable concept of "Get Hard." Handled with a smart and clever edge, the film could've been a sharp, funny mockery of race relations, stereotypes and the country's obliviously wealthy haves. However, handle it poorly - steer it down the path of lazy execution and easy gags - and, well, you get "Get Hard."
