Winnie the Pooh

(G) ★★★☆☆

Disney’s latest revival, and musical homage, to A.A. Milne’s lovable bear is longer on charm than it is on laughs. Sad old Eeyore (voiced by Bud Luckey) has lost his tail, and the gang makes various plans to round up a replacement. Voice actor Jim Cummings does a great impersonation of Sterling Holloway, the original Pooh, and the direction makes for a gentle and warm introduction to the cineplex for all the little tykes out there.

Robot Nixons, power violence and cave shows in the desert

By Jarret Keene

Been an unusual week for the lowly Soundscraper. At the very last second, I caught wind of a downtown performance by Denmark’s Thisted Church Choir of Men and Boys on July 1. Apparently her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary sponsored this renowned singing group’s trip to the U.S. for a slate of concerts in California, with but one stop in Nevada—just a few blocks from my house at Christ Church Episcopal. It was awesome, as the set comprised everything from Benjamin Britten’s strange, angular Rejoice in the Lamb to Gabriel Fauré’s moody, ambient Cantique de Jean Racine.
