The Woman in Black

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

With Harry Potter finally behind him, Daniel Radcliffe brings this longtime English scare entity to the big screen. London solicitor Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe) is sent to settle the affairs of its recently deceased owner. Years earlier, Alice Drablow lost her son in the nearby marsh. His cries can still be heard. Kipps comes to learn the truth of the creepy village, the title woman and a startling fatality rate for local kids. Radcliffe is great, and the movie is an entertaining horror film, even if we’ve seen it before.

Martina McBride and George Strait

By Agnes Poliquin

Sure, the 45-year-old mother of three and self-proclaimed “luckiest girl in the world” belted her hits from past albums (including “Independence Day” and “Wrong Baby Wrong”). But songs from her newest album, Eleven, on which she took a larger role writing were especially moving. (“Teenage Daughters” was a highlight.) After singing “A Broken Wing,” McBride received a standing ovation, which delighted her so much that she pronounced, “Wow, I should play here all the time!” (Too bad Shania Twain already nabbed the country music songtress residency at Caesars Palace.)
