  • Movie review: 'Ping Pong Summer'

    Movie review: 'Ping Pong Summer'
    "Ping Pong Summer" envisions a time when a kid's biggest worry was showing off at the local arcade, when a beach-side cookout with your weird relatives could become the stuff of family legend, when friends were all that really mattered and appearing...
  • Movie review: 'The Fault in Our Stars'

    Movie review: 'The Fault in Our Stars'
    In the discreetly assaultive film version of "The Fault in Our Stars" there's a scene, faithful to the one in the best-selling John Green book, where Hazel and Augustus visit the Amsterdam home of a novelist whose cancer-related novel holds great personal...
  • Like/Dislike with James Wyman, BSO principal timpanist

    Like/Dislike with James Wyman, BSO principal timpanist
    Let's get this out of the way: A timpanist is that cool one in the orchestra who gets to bang on one of those huge drums in the back. Timpani has long been a big part of the life of 30-year-old James Wyman, now in his first year with the Baltimore...
  • What happened to the Star-Spangled Banner's missing star?

    What happened to the Star-Spangled Banner's missing star?
    Decades of careful restoration and study have revealed a lot about the flag that flew over Fort McHenry after its defenders fought off a naval attack during the War of 1812: the swatches taken as mementos of the pivotal battle, the areas worn by time,...

  • Movie review: '22 Jump Street'

    Movie review: '22 Jump Street'
    The peculiar sweetness of "21 Jump Street" has taken a hiatus in "22 Jump Street," a brazen sequel that's both slightly disappointing and a reliable, often riotous "laffer" in the old Variety trade-magazine parlance. No question about it, I laffed, more...
  • Gravity? Ha! Peking Acrobats bounce into town

    If most of us consider it an accomplishment to walk and chew gum at the same time, the Peking Acrobats are way beyond the human norm when it comes to physical dexterity. They'll demonstrate their extreme feats when appearing at a Columbia Festival of the...
  • Movie review: 'Earth to Echo'

    Movie review: 'Earth to Echo'
    It's no "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial." (What is?) But on its own modest terms, the alien adventure "Earth to Echo" is a lively and likable knockoff that should divert, if not exactly enthrall, tweens and young teens. Logic hounds beware, however. The...

  • 'Ultima Partida' is a play on words, emotions and music

    'Ultima Partida' is a play on words, emotions and music
    Even in a group of overachievers, Monica Lopez-Gonzalez would likely stand out. The 30-year-old native Baltimorean has two bachelor's degrees — in French and psychology — and an M.A. and Ph.D. in cognitive science, all from the Johns Hopkins...
  • Street-poet documentary has many Baltimore connections

    Street-poet documentary has many Baltimore connections
    In a scene from the documentary "A Place of Truth," opening Thursday at the Creative Alliance, Abi Mott sits behind a small desk on a city street corner with a sign that reads: "Name a price. Pick a subject. Get a poem." She is greeted by a customer and...
