  • North Korean cinema: Kidnappings and evil Americans Dec 22, 2014 6:59 AM
    North Korea hates the currently scrapped Hollywood film that revolves around the assassination of its beloved leader, but the country has had a long love affair with cinema — of its own particular styling. The U.S. blames North Korea for the recent cyberattack on Sony Pictures, which produced “The Interview,” and also for threats of terror attacks against U.S. movie theaters.

  • ‘Into the Woods’ a sanitized but still exuberant journey Dec 22, 2014 4:05 PM
    Rob Marshall’s “Into the Woods” presents an exuberantly engaging, yet awkwardly cleansed cinematic translation of Stephen Sondheim’s lyrically impressive 1987 Broadway musical, based on fairy tales. With a little narrative nip and tuck mandated by the Disney studio, “Into the Woods” dispenses with death and sanitizes seduction to the point that a later song decrying it becomes laughable overkill.

  • Nintendo designer talks 'amiibo,' 'Zelda' and 'Mario' Dec 22, 2014 5:35 PM

The veteran Nintendo designer behind such landmark video-game franchises as “Mario Bros.” and “Donkey Kong” is happy that after three years of sluggish sales for Nintendo's touchscreen-centric Wii U console, the Kyoto, Japan-based gaming giant is bouncing back, just like the famous springy plumber dreamed up 33 years ago by Miyamoto.

  • Smashing Pumpkins’ Corgan looks ahead, not back Dec 22, 2014 6:01 AM
    The Smashing Pumpkins are dead. Long live the Smashing Pumpkins. It’s fair to say lead singer Billy Corgan, who grew up in Glendale Heights, has an ambivalent relationship with his band. Corgan may be the Pumpkins’ only remaining original member, but the non-band has just released its eighth studio album, “Monuments to an Elegy.” A slice of grungy pop-rock featuring guitarist Jeff Schroeder, who joined the Pumpkins in 2007, and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, it’s received good reviews — though not good enough for Corgan.
