Film Review: ‘The Sense of an Ending’ Ponders a Vague Mystery

17 March 2017 8:59 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “The Sense of an Ending” is a highfalutin title, automatically putting most folks into book club mode. It is adapted from a novel, and the narrative has the same page turning-type rhythm. An old man, portrayed by Jim Broadbent, is encountering his past, while his current situation remains untenable.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

The “ending” is what the story is driving towards, and it involves a past that is hard to grasp in the complexities, since it involves university days, girlfriends, best friends, parents and post adolescent anger. There is a secret among all this, which is buried under layers of feelings and the years. We are all products of our past, and what haunts us about it defines much of our emotional make up. That is the theme of “The Sense of an Ending,” and that theme is established early and is not much affected by the reveal of what actually happened. »

John Forgeham obituary

13 March 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Veteran character actor who appeared in The Italian Job, Prime Suspect and Footballers Wives

John Forgeham, who has died aged 75, was a hard-living actor who brought some of his off-screen qualities to his best known television roles, which were often unsympathetic. As the loud-mouthed car mechanic Jim Baines in Crossroads, he was in the long-running soap at the height of its popularity, when the series was watched by some 18 million viewers (though loathed by the critics). For four years (1974-78), at one time with a curly perm redolent of the era, Jim belittled his wife, Muriel, whom he called “Mu” (played by Anne Rutter), and cheated on her with the motel garage’s secretary-turned-manager Sharon Metcalfe (Carolyn Jones). Despite the storylines, Forgeham was hugely popular, particularly with female viewers.

He continued to appear on television over the next two decades. However, by 1999, roles were drying up and he was working »

‘The Walking Dead’ Review: ‘Say Yes’ Is A Good Old-Fashioned Zombie Fight

Last Week’S Review: Two Characters Arrive at a Moral Crossroads in ‘Hostiles and Calamities’

Whose Episode Is It?

If you were hankering for some Rick last week, worry not, because he and Michonne are the focus of “Say Yes,” as they try to scrounge up the guns that the Dumpsters demanded in “New Best Friends.” Meanwhile, Rosita is still stewing about blowing her shot at Negan (as she should, he was right there) and Tara expounded her moral conundrum to a baby. It’s hardly a barn-burner of an episode, but it gets the job done, and there are a few deft touches here and there that set it apart from other by-the-numbers “Walking Dead” installments.

Obligatory Zombie Action

For the first time this season, the main plot centers exclusively on a zombie operation, as Rick and Michonne find a school carnival that was turned into a military outpost »
