Live-action ‘Mulan’ provides drama where original provided humor

A big fan of musicals, Senior Cadenza Editor Sabrina Spence expected that the lack of music in the new “Mulan” would be a problem. She was wrong.

Stepping Out: Three Kings Public House

Three Kings Public House, a bar and grill across the street from the Tivoli Theatre, offers filling fare served with smiles in a handsome space. However, the pub lacks any attribute that makes it noteworthy.

Cadenza discusses ‘Deathly Hallows’

‘Morning Glory’

“Morning Glory” begins with a firing. Becky (Rachel McAdams), a loyal producer on a local affiliate’s morning show, is unceremoniously dumped. All doom and gloom, her mom tells her that since she’s 28 years old, her dream of becoming a television producer is basically over. Five minutes later, Jerry Barnes (Jeff Goldblum) of IBS is on the horn and offers her a job to executive produce the network’s embarrassment of a morning show, “DayBreak.”

Jackass 3-D

I will say this: Jackass knows exactly what it is. If you liked the first two movies, you’ll probably like this one, too. It’s not highbrow or complicated, and it doesn’t try to be.

‘The Dissent of Man’ | Bad Religion

Bad Religion is back, serving up another helping of their signature politicized punk rock. The first track, “The Day That the Earth Stalled,” wouldn’t have sounded out of place on either of Bad Religion’s past two albums, giving rise to fears that they may be stuck in a rut. Fortunately, the rest of the record lays those fears to rest.

‘Everything in Between’ | No Age

[rating stars=3] Despite their chronology-averse moniker, No Age seems to be going through their awkward adolescent phase. This L.A. noise-punk duo strives for a more mature sound but refuses to fully abandon the youthful recklessness of their previous work, resulting in a batch of songs stuck in a tepid middle ground.

‘Real Ghosts Caught on Tape’ | Fake Problems

[rating stars=4.5]With lyrics like “I will pretend to be asleep so that no one will notice me,” Fake Problems might sound like a downer band if they didn’t have what is perhaps the jauntiest of jaunty guitar licks around.
