Twelve years ago i wasn’t all that impressed with The Boston Strangler. I thought it too slick and felt that its noted multi-screen sequences were a trick gimmick. I appreciate it more now — except for the name cast, »

His wife, Oscar-nominated “M*A*S*H” actress Sally Kellerman, announced the news on Facebook earlier this week. Her manager, Bruce Tufeld, also confirmed Krane’s death to Variety.
“So sorry to report the sudden passing on Monday of my beloved husband Jonathan D. Krane,” Kellerman wrote. “Thankfully our twins Jack and Hannah are both with me. I am totally devastated.”
Krane founded Management Company Entertainment Group (McEg) in the late ’80s, which quickly rocketed to success with the 1989 release of “Look Who’s Talking,” which was directed by Amy Heckerling. It starred Travolta as a cab driver who starts dating a woman played by Kirstie Alley, the mother of a snarky, troublesome toddler, voiced by Bruce Willis.

Robert Altman's murder tale reeks of insider access and Hollywood hipster Bs; its main claim to greatness is its fifty-plus star cameos. It may no longer seem as smart as it looked in 1992, but they don't make 'em any slicker than this. The Player Blu-ray The Criterion Collection 812 1992 / Color /1:85 widescreen / 124 min. / Available through The Criterion Collection / Street Date May 24, 2016 / 39.95 Starring Tim Robbins, Greta Scacchi, Fred Ward, Whoopi Goldberg, Peter Gallagher, Brion James, Cynthia Stevenson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Lyle Lovett.

Stardate, 2016. We start off for… hold up. I have a confession. I am not a Trekkie. I owe no allegiance to the myriad TV iterations, although I am fond of the original mid-’60s series and their subsequent big screen adventures (except for The Final Frontier—I am reasonably lucid). However, this particular voyage is co-captained by my wife, Michelle, who has a deep fondness for the original gang and their follow-up crew of The Next Generation (which I don’t like, and yet she still married me). She can identify scenes by hearing orchestral movements from the series and the films. In short, she is a Trekkie (and yes, I asked her permission to call her that—I’m not insane).
