On Tap: Canned beer event expands as the market grows

When the Elk Public House started its Spo-Can festival five years ago, canned craft beer was still something of a novelty. “The availability of craft in cans was pretty limited,” said Marshall Powell, the Elk’s general manager. “It was a niche sort of thing.”

Magneto, portrayed by Michael Fassbender, appears in a scene from, “X-Men: Apocalypse.” (Twentieth Century Fox)

Movie review: ‘X-Men’ impressive, but lacks originality

By now it’s pretty obvious how the world’s screwed-up political scene is affecting Hollywood. The same kind of black-white, up-down, in-out, you’re-wrong-you-moron polarization that can be seen everywhere from the Spokane Valley to the European Union has now enveloped Hollywood. Nowhere, though, is that kind of polarization more on strident display than in the most recent trio of superhero blockbuster movies.

Tilda Swinton, right, and Matthias Schoenaerts in a scene from "A Bigger Splash." (AP)

Movie review: ‘A Bigger Splash’ is a luscious, sexy, trouble-in-paradise flick

On one level – say, the deep end of a swimming pool in a villa on a volcanic isle – “A Bigger Splash” is the art film version of a houseguest-from-hell horror story. The loud, impossibly exuberant record producer Harry Hawkes (Ralph Fiennes) arrives uninvited to an idyllic Mediterranean retreat. The couple lolling there, skinny-dipping, lovemaking and dining on mouthwatering country cuisine – have been living in splendid isolation. That’s the setup for Luca Guadagnino’s sunbaked, slow-burning mystery.

Mia Wasikowska appears in a scene from "Alice Through The Looking Glass." (Peter Mountain / AP)

Movie review: ‘Looking Glass’ is an uninspired trip back to Wonderland

When Tim Burton’s 2010 live-action version of “Alice in Wonderland” raked in a billion dollars there was no question that Disney would pounce on the opportunity for a sequel. Helpfully, Lewis Carroll did write a second book about Alice and her adventures in Wonderland, “Through the Looking-Glass,” but it proves to be only a suggestion for the film, which arrives this weekend, to a very diminished return.
