Burbank’s Colony Theatre has another superb L.A. premiere hit musical in its totally professional hands. If it wasn’t for the fact that the Colony easily outshines most Off-Broadway venues, it would be hard to believe that no other producers in the Los Angeles area were smart enough to nab “No Way to Treat a Lady” before now. Anyone who remembers the quirky 1968 movie with George Segal, Lee Remick and Rod Steiger knows...

Paul Clinton MEDIA CITY CENTER -- Tom Beirne isn't the kind of guy you'd think would write a children's story. At least not if you heard about his day job. A New York City police officer, the stocky, muscular Beirne has seen horrors most adults would choose not to face. But there he was, participating in the weeklong Burbank International Children's Film Festival, which ended Friday. The 34-year-old Beirne flew into town, script in hand, to make his dreams come true as a professional writer.

PRODUCERS CAPITALIZE ON THE SERIES' PAST SUCCESSES Stephen Saito is a graduate of Burbank High School and attends the University of Texas at Austin as a junior. He also serves as the entertainment editor for The Daily Texan. If it wasn't bad enough that there was already a masterful take on Thomas Harris' "Red Dragon" made in 1985, director Brett Ratner's sad, stupid and outright silly re-imagining of the same material is made worse by the film's purely capitalistic motives.

Matt Bellner of Burbank is an actor. If you like serial-killer/ mystery movies, then the Angelina Jolie film, "Taking Lives," is for you. If you need your movies to be completely logical, avoid this film. Jolie plays Illeana Scott, an FBI agent sent to Montreal to help the French-Canadians solve a string of related murders. Jolie does an excellent job in a role that would usually be played by Ashley Judd. I guess Judd was busy. No offense to FBI agents, but Jolie is too good looking to be a cop. Ethan Hawke plays James Costa, the only witness in the investigation.

Do you enjoy laughing at the expense of another man's shortcomings? If so, you'll enjoy "The 40 Year Old Virgin." If you're easily offended by sexual humor and crude language, take your money elsewhere. I like laughing at other people and sometimes I even make my living doing this and therefore, I highly recommend this movie. Guess what? "The 40 Year Old Virgin" is about a guy who is 40 years old and a virgin. I bet you didn't see that one coming.

Jenna Bordelon BURBANK -- A state Senate bill aimed at compensating families of victims of violent crime when dealers try to peddle so called "murder memorabilia" is one step closer to becoming law. The Senate voted 38 to 0 Friday to approve the bill authored by state Senator Adam Schiff (D-Burbank). The bill will be sent to Gov. Gray Davis, who has until Sept. 30 to sign. The legislation would provide for the seizure of profits from the sale of merchandise by third-party profiteers.

Over the years, Woody Allen's films have spanned a wide range of popularity, and his fame rests more with artistic merit rather than commercial success. With this longevity he's amassed a strong cadre of devotees, and this group should enjoy "Scoop," (rated PG-13) his latest effort. Reminiscent of his "Purple Rose of Cairo" in which a character came off a movie screen and entered someone's life, this film requires the viewer to suspend disbelief and accept the far-fetched premise.

It started with a school assignment. English teacher Bob Martin asked his Burbank High School students to create a movie poster based on a book they were reading in class. And the submission of then-junior Alex Salinas caught his eye. "It was just incredible work," Martin said. "I joked with him, 'You are such a great artist, you should do my book.'" Shortly thereafter, Martin extended a more formal invitation, asking Salinas to do the illustrations for a children's book he had in progress titled "James' Night of Terror.

Does the free world really need another ?Friday the 13th? movie? That?s the question I asked myself as I entered my sold-out theater on a perfect night to see a scary movie. Since the slasher flick opened No. 1 at the box office, the terrifying answer is, yes. ?Friday the 13th? is a remake/revision of the 1980 film of the same name. This latest incarnation is a slickly made tribute to the original and the 1981 sequel. The new release tells the complete story of Jason Voorhees and his unfortunate drowning as a youth at Camp Crystal Lake.
