You’ve seen it all before, but not like this and not with this cast and not at this locale. “Crazy Rich Asians” is a very likable Cinderella story, a romantic comedy that seems fresh due to its engaging all-Asian cast, feel-good vibe and amusing script. It’s a sweet wish-fulfillment fantasy, the positive Ying to “Fifty Shades of Grey’s” negative Yang.

 

“Alpha” is a visually spectacular pre-history epic from writer-director Albert Hughes. Kodi Smit-McPhee plays a young hunter who becomes the first to develop a cooperative relationship with man’s best friend. It’s a family-friendly survival saga.

 

Mark Wahlberg stars in the ultra-violent and morally ambiguous action-adventure, “Mile 22.” Wahlberg plays the leader of a CIA special ops team that must make a dangerous 22-mile trek through an East Asian city to help a valuable prisoner escape. In spite of some well-staged action sequences, this noisy thiller ultimately outfoxes itself.

 

“The Miseducation of Cameron Post” is about a lesbian teen, played by Chloë Grace Moretz, who is forced by family to attend a Christian conversion therapy camp. Although the cast is fine, Moretz’s character is just too enigmatic and unfocused.

 

“Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood” profiles Scotty Bowers, a 95-year-old man who was once a Tinseltown pimp and claims to have been the sexual partner of many of the biggest male and female stars from the movie’s golden age. While the stories are salacious, Scotty comes off as a likably foul-mouthed geezer.

 

Also opening this week, Uma Thurman stars in “Down a Dark Hall,” a horror film set at a boarding school. “McQueen” is a documentary about famed fashion designer Alexander McQueen. “Our House” is a horror thriller about a machine that can bring back the dead. “Never Goin’ Back” is a coming of age drama.  “Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich” is a horror…oh, well, enough said.


The remarkable true story of Ron Stallworth has been brought to the big screen by director Spike Lee and co-writer Kevin Willmott, who is professor of film at KU. John David Washington (“Ballers”) plays Stallworth, a black Colorado police officer who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s. Adam Driver (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”) plays a Jewish police officer who posed as Stallworth in his face-to-face encounters with the Klan. Topher Grace (“That 70s Show”) plays Klan leader, David Duke.

Donald Drumpf Theatre: Vol. 83 Racist. This week our hero’s lawyers host a radio show. Songs this week from Dragnet (“Opening Theme”), The Clash (“Rudie Can’t Fail”), and Golden Earring (“Twilight Zone”). Clips and excerpts from Sarah Sanders; Seth Meyers; Jay Sekulow; Rudy Giuliani; Nicolle Wallace; Brian Kilmeade; Jake Tapper; George Stephanopoulos; Alex Witt; Savannah Guthrie; James Comey; John Kelly; Omarosa Manigault Newman; Stephen Colbert; Erin Burnett; Chuck Todd; Kristen Welker; John Dickerson; Trevor Noah; John Oliver; Laura Ingraham; “Our Cartoon President;” Katy Tur; Megyn Kelly; Hillary Clinton; Billy Bush; and Stuttering John. “Donald Drumpf Theatre” is an original radio theatre show about a fictional, theatrical presidency, with most sounds culled from the previous week. Contradictions tell the story, with songs, skits, and clips from political news shows and late-night comedy routines. The definition of “radio theatre” is stretched here, with an updated Dickie Goodman and/or Richard Foreman-meets-mashup style sometimes, and a more straightforward take other weeks.

The panelists are Jeff Mann, Cynthia Burack, Jeff Edmondson, and host Elizabeth Andersen. Elizabeth knew she had to have Jeff Mann on the show when she heard Dorothy Allison and Jeff on a panel at the Saints and Sinners Literary Festival in 2017. This was the kind of literary conversation author Sandra Moran had in mind when she conceived of this show. Then when Jeff mentioned in a reading that Cynthia Burack (in the front row) was one of his best friends, I hatched a plan. Jeff Edmondson and I served on the board of the LikeMe Community Center, and I knew Jeff as an entrepreneur and member of the Bear Mafia, but I had no idea he was a prolific author. We discuss Jeff Mann’s novel Cub, our literary influences, our authors’ various books, the bear community, bridge-building in a divisive era, and much else.


Katherine V. Forrest is featured on the Sandra Moran Radio Book Club, with author/humorist Fay Jacobs and host Elizabeth Andersen as panelists. Katherine is the author of such groundbreaking romances as Curious WIne and An Emergence of Green, as well as the beloved Kate Delafield mystery series. Other topics include her place in the history of lesbian literature and the role of an editor.
