The R-rated "Kingdom of Heaven" is a rousing epic in the grand tradition of many sword-fight spectacles. A multilayered film, it offers something for many viewers. Because of the many violent fight scenes with bloody battles, it should not be thought of as a family film, but older teens who are mature enough to handle these elements will enjoy the action. The story takes place in 1184 in France, where Balian (Orlando Bloom) is a French blacksmith whose wife has committed suicide, leaving him spiritually confused and searching for meaning in his life.

Have you ever been to a date movie without a date? I went to see "Just Like Heaven" alone, worried that not having my husband there to buy my popcorn could douse my enthusiasm for a love story. Without him, the romantic in me might accept anything this movie dished out. More on that later. I decided to forget all that and watch this movie as, well, as a Reel Critic. Screenwriters Peter Tolan and Leslie Dixon seemed determined not to make this film a cliche.

What was twice a movie (most recently starring Warren Beatty), is now a stage comedy, "Heaven Can Wait" at Glendale Centre Theatre, and the results are almost, well, heavenly. The last thing that handsome boxer and airplane pilot Joe Pendleton remembers is being airborne somewhere over New Jersey. His plane was on auto pilot while he was preoccupied with playing his saxophone in the cockpit. A crash must have followed because Joe suddenly finds himself at Heaven's pearly gates.

My son turned 4 yesterday. I remember being on bed rest with that child like it was yesterday. I recall the fear of losing him, waking and counting his moves every hour, and going in for an emergency procedure to keep him in my womb. I was on bed rest almost six months before he came into this world eight weeks early — and remained in the neonatal unit for almost four weeks. That was a trial in my life that I will never forget. Yet, as I see this healthy boy run and play, I often forget that we almost lost him. Life is like that.

CINDY TRANE CHRISTESON "You are in the beloved -- his very own, his member -- therefore infinitely dear to the Father, unspeakably precious to him. You are never, not for one second, alone; then no reason for loneliness or depression." NORMAN F. DOUTY "A little Swedish girl was walking with her father one night under the starry sky, intently meditating on the glories of heaven. At last, looking up to the sky, she said, 'Father, I have been thinking that if the wrong side of heaven is so beautiful, what will the right side be?

Paul McCartney once wondered whether the world had had enough of silly love songs, but eventually concluded it wasn't so. The producers of the new film "Just Like Heaven" apparently have reached the same conclusion regarding silly cinematic love stories. "Just Like Heaven" is an old-fashioned and extremely sentimental love story starring two very likable actors, Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo. Witherspoon plays Elizabeth Masterson, a capable but overworked doctor finishing her residency at a San Francisco hospital.

I lived in this area for years before I discovered that there was an enchanted land right in our backyard - an equestrian neighborhood where horses grazed and nickered and strolled along the streets with their owners on their way to the trails of Griffith Park. Once I discovered this amazing place, I decided to celebrate my birthday by learning to ride. You do crazy things when you're facing the big 5-0. I checked out some local riding schools and decided on the Riding Coach. We drove over and met our teacher, Gudrun.

On any given night, youths at the Amani Children’s Home in Moshi, Tanzania, can look up and see the moon and stars, but that’s as close as most will ever come to understanding the universe and its scientific wonders. Many of them have never been to school, let alone learned about the planets or space exploration. So when Paulo Younse, a robotics engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, visited the orphanage in January, he took the universe to them. Younse set off Dec. 30 on a three-week African excursion, which included a climb to the frigid peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro, a four-day safari in the Serengeti and swimming with dolphins in Zanzibar.

It is very easy to drive on the main commercial portion of Brand Boulevard in Glendale between Colorado Street and Glenoaks Boulevard and find restaurants varying in ethnicity, price and quality. But you need to continue traveling farther north to find top-notch culinary excellence at a marvelous gem called Gennaro’s. This stretch of Brand is still primarily business-oriented, but the look and feel are different, and Gennaro’s reflects this mood. Upon entering you notice d├ęcor that is elegant but not ostentatious — upscale in a manner that seems appropriate for an excellent Italian meal.

A Burbank surgeon claims 75% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of it. In response, Dr. Deanna Attai said she uses a test to help her evaluate younger women’s risk of developing the disease. Women 50 and older have the mammogram to help in early detection of breast cancer, but it isn’t part of the annual exams for younger women, unless they or family members have had a history of the disease. In the last two years, Attai, a board-certified surgeon with the Center for Breast Care, has been using the HALO Breast Pap Test for assessing the risk of breast cancer in women ages 18 to 50. It’s the only FDA-cleared risk screening test for nonhereditary breast cancer, Attai said, and can detect abnormal cells years before a larger, potentially cancerous lesion might develop.

In keeping with the current movement to preserve the environment and maximize resources, I will recycle the show business adage I’ve used before that “dying is easy, but comedy is hard” because a twist on it is applicable to “Leap,” now playing at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank. The reversal here is that the comedy is easy, but the dying is hard. And why? Because Bob Kanicki (Michael Kagan), a once-promising television writer long past his glory days, can’t even be successful in killing himself.
