Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part One

(PG-13) ★★☆☆☆

This fourth film’s 117 minutes seem like hours. Sex with a vampire. Finally. For three films now, the narrative has focused on the smoldering, we-can’t-we-shouldn’t sweet nothings between Bella and Edward, with a side order of Jacob. After consummating their marriage, finally, Bella becomes pregnant with Edward’s demon seed. The pregnancy foments another round of species warfare between the vamps and the wolves. Strictly for franchise fans.

The Dirty Heads

By Craig A. Nyman

The reggae/hip-hop act rolled into the neon oasis with a set fit for a bonfire party on the beach. The SoCal beach boys—playing one of their final fall tour stops and second Vegas date within four months—had the lively crowd bopping to “Neighborhood” and “Taint” before breaking out some new material. A sweet, chilled-out reggae cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Paint It Black” was a highlight of the evening, but it bewildered the all-ages crowd, which, for the only time all night, stood frozen.
