Why did the jet initially take a pass on landing at John Wayne Airport?

Q. Mr. Honk: On May 27 I was on a flight to John Wayne Airport. It was a 737 Max, and I was excited to have an experience with this marvelous airplane. During the flight from Denver, everything was going very well.  At about 7 p.m. during the approach to JWA, I was looking out the window and from what I could guess we had passed the I-5 Freeway and were descending normally. Then I noticed the aircraft started gaining altitude. We passed over the airport. My assumption was that because of Santa A...

Pearl Harbor Is the Greatest Guilty Pleasure Movie of All Time

The title of this article should actually end with an ellipsis followed by “aside from Armageddon, Bad Boys II or any of the Transformers films.” Yeah, I’m a sucker for all things Michael Bay. The man makes entertaining movies flawlessly designed for the theater-going experience. I freely admit I saw Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen four times when it was released in 2009, and even uncharacteristically defended it against Roger Ebert’s vicious, though on point, attacks. From a critical persp...

Flowers adorn Gold Spa, where activists demonstrated against violence against women and Asians.

Akira Kurosawa Appears in a Rare Television & Tells Dick Cavett about His Love of Old Tokyo & His Samurai Lineage (1981)

There was a time in America when you could sit down in the evening, turn on a television talk show, and hear a conversation with Akira Kurosawa. That time was the early 1980s, and that talk show came hosted, of course, by Dick Cavett, to whom no cultural current — and indeed no culture — was too foreign for broadcast. With pictures like Rashomon, Ikiru, Seven Samurai, and Throne of Blood, Kurosawa established himself in the 1950s as the most acclaimed Japanese auteur alive, with prominen...

‘The Marksman’ Review: Liam Neeson Saves a Mexican Boy From Cartel Slaughter in a Feel-Good Action Road Movie

There have, on occasion, been terrific dramas built around the relationship between a crusty adult and a spiky kid. “True Grit” (1969) was good, with the firebrand tomboy Kim Darby a perfect foil for the aging cowpoke John Wayne (and it was a more memorable movie than the Coen brothers’ remake). “Paper Moon” (1973) was […]
