CHICAGO – Actress Jessica Alba has made her mark in Hollywood, known for her TV show “Dark Angel,” and films like “The Fantastic Four” and “Sin City.” She has expanded her versatility by penning her first book, “The Honest Life: Living Naturally and True to Yourself,” and was recently in the Chicago area promoting the best seller.

Blu-Ray Review: Brittany Murphy Deserved Better Send-Off Than ‘Abandoned’

Abandoned

CHICAGO – I wonder how the movie history books will remember Brittany Murphy, who died suddenly at the end of 2009.

Most collectors interested in the Blu-Ray upgrade of the title will probably already own the box set that came with an entire graphic novel and is currently anchoring many a respectable DVD shelf. The Blu-Ray release features two new special features and, of course, HD picture and sound. Should you upgrade?

  • Soccer Player in the Closet, The 2

    CHICAGO – Connecting to the theater collective Nothing Without a Company means a couple of things.
