Oscar-nominated short films to show at Film Streams

For the fourth year in a row, "Oscar Shorts! Academy Award Nominated Films" opens Friday, Feb. 11 at the Ruth Sokolof theater. They will present the films nominated for Best Animated Short and Best Live-Action short, as they have done in the past. For the first time, they will be showing this year's nominees for Best Documentary Short.


‘Another Year,’ another disappointment

"Another Year," directed by Mike Lee, began playing late January and can be seen at Film Streams until Feb. 10. The movie takes place in the UK and focuses on a happily married couple in their 60's. Although Tom and Gerri (Jim Broadbent and Ruth Sheen) seem to be very much in love, their friends and family have deep issues with getting older. 


Bold performances, disappointing plot

Twenty years ago, Sir Anthony Hopkins played Dr. Hannibal Lecter in "Silence of the Lambs." It turned into one of the defining roles of his long, illustrious career and still terrifies viewers. In his new film "The Rite," Hopkins turns in a typically strong performance, but really it's just a riff on reliable old Hannibal the Cannibal.

Flawless “Human”

 A vampire, a werewolf and a ghost living together sounds like the beginning of a really bad joke, or at the very least, a really bad ‘tween book.


Mary Poppins is pure magic

Mary Poppins: The Broadway Musical" is pure magic. I've loved the movie since I was five, and the stage production exceeded even my highest expectations.


UNO faculty art exhibit

UNO's art gallery, room 219 in the Weber Fine Arts building, displays work from artists of all levels: undergraduates, graduate students and professional artists. Right now, the gallery is showcasing art by UNO faculty artists.
