Summer movies 2015

A season of sequels

This weekend’s opening of the action-packed comic-book superhero sequel “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is a sure sign that another summer movie season is officially kicking off in full force.

Then again, the Victorian-era romantic drama “Far From the Madding Crowd” opens next week — a sign that more discriminating audiences won’t be totally out of luck for the next few months.

Play dates are subject to change, as always, but here’s a look at more than 50 films scheduled to open between early May and late August.


Don Felder endures as a classic rock mainstay

Don Felder endures as a classic rock mainstay

Don Felder is the ideal artist to include in any classic rock tour.

Between his pedigree and recognizability as a former member of the Eagles — he wrote the music for “Hotel California” and played on dozens of other hits during his 1974-2001 tenure with the band — and his genuine love of performing, it’s not surprising that Felder always has a steady gig.

Jumping the gun on a review

Last week, Guy Wong, the owner of Le Fat — a new westside Vietnamese restaurant — wrote me a friendly but concerned letter after I sent a photographer to shoot some dishes.

The news that I was planning to review the restaurant, he wrote, took him by surprise. “We have only been open for a couple of weeks. I thought normally restaurants are given more time to adjust before the full review happens.”

Photographer contemplates the fleeting nature of time in solo show

Photographer contemplates the fleeting nature of time

Matthew Pillsbury’s photographs of crowds passing through museums, churches, nightclubs and parks might seem a bit gimmicky at first glance. Shooting with a long exposure, Pillsbury captures people as hazy tracers of movement while the spaces they occupy are in crisp focus.

But the use of long exposure as the organizing principle for these images shouldn’t distract from their philosophical charms.


Sloppy sandwiches overstuffed with love

Sloppy sandwiches overstuffed with love

An arepa can take many forms, depending on the mood of the person who griddles it. The Venezuelan corn cake might be flat, crisp-edged and drizzled with syrup. It could be a bisected pancake, lined with a few morsels of meat and veggies — a taco that thinks it’s a pita.

And then there’s the happy, hot mess you get at Arepa Mia’s new Decatur location.
