Every Francis Ford Coppola Feature Ranked From Worst To Best

Out of all the New Hollywood directors to launch their careers in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Francis Ford Coppola is without a doubt one of the most famous. This is partially a result of his string of hits throughout the 1970s, many of which are serious contenders in any conversation about the best films ever made. But when you talk about Francis Ford Coppola, you also have to discuss the veritable film dynasty he would become the head of — it's sort of like "The Godfather," only with a bun...

what i'm reading: john steinbeck and me

I recently read Mad at the World: A Life of John Steinbeck by William Souder, part of my new-found interest in biographies over the past few years.* Instead of reviewing the book, I thought I would write about the presence of John Steinbeck's writing in my life -- its history, its influence, the connection I feel. The book itself is quite good, but I assume it's of interest only to readers of John Steinbeck. Possibly to people who like biographies of writers? I don't know. Personally, I'd be v...

St. John Bosco basketball going back to regional finals after victory over Harvard-Westlake

BELLFLOWER — St. John Bosco ran into a buzz saw at the start of its CIF Southern California Regional boys basketball semifinal Thursday night.

A second California appellate court has endorsed Bolger but goes further: strict liability applies even if Amazon doesn’t do the fulfilment. This puts Amazon is a legally dicey spot, and its countermoves will likely s...
