Carrie Fisher’s relationship with her mother, Debbie Reynolds, was the stuff of Hollywood legend.
Its own chapter in the proverbial annals of show business lore, thanks largely in part to Fisher’s 1987 novel Postcards From the Edge, mother and daughter gave their devoted fans exactly what they wanted when they appeared in public together, bickering like a Borscht Belt duo in “take my mom, please” fashion.
But though their relationship could rightfully be categorized as turbulent, the thornier aspects … read more

This time, however, it’s not Nemo they’re looking for; it’s Dory’s family.

The brain trust at Pixar was listening, but there was just one problem: Due to Dory’s absentmindedness, making her the lead character would be risky.

Jason Bourne (12A)
Verdict: Thrilling action flick
Rating: Amnesia is all the rage on the big screen this week. Basic memory loss powers the adventures both of the eponymous spy in Jason Bourne and the blue tang fish in Finding Dory. But the hero really swimming against the tide isn’t the one with fins.
He is played, as in the first three Bourne films, by Matt Damon, who was absent from the last one, 2012’s The Bourne Legacy. A good job, too; it was a decidedly muddled and overwrought affair.
But … read more
