  • Reader: Poverty at root of Savannah’s ‘criminal subculture’

    Unfortunately, the absence of police officers is not what brought about the gangs in the first place, and it’s not going to make them go away

  • Editor's Note: ‘Fixing’ flooding is a futile goal

    These storms drop more water in a short amount of time than is realistically possible for humans to alleviate, regardless of how much money we spend. The one-two punch of very low elevation plus very heavy rain remains undefeated.

  • Editor's Note: Thoughts on a Fourth of July from hell

    Fighting poverty won’t fix everything, but it will fix a lot of things. Sometimes young people make terrible decisions regardless of what you do to help them. But society makes it difficult for young people to make the right decisions in the first place.

FILM

Review: Dunkirk

Review: Dunkirk

To suggest that Dunkirk is a movie lacking in emotion because it’s lacking in sharply etched players is incorrect. Director Christopher Nolan’s strength here is his ability to place audiences right into the thick of the various struggles taking place by air, land and sea.

  • Review: War For The Planet Of The Apes

    Andy Serkis again excels in the role that arguably will surpass Gollum as his most iconic.

  • Review: Baby Driver

    Writer-director Edgar Wright deserves the lion’s share of the kudos, not only for assembling a note-perfect cast but also for providing them with dialogue that’s often a pleasure to encounter.
