The Lucky One

(PG-13) ★★☆☆☆

This latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation isn’t The Notebook, but it, like the author, knows its audience. Logan (Zac Efron) is a rattled Marine vet who’s ripe for the right woman to come along. In a night raid in Iraq, Logan finds a photo of a smiling woman in the rubble. Upon returning home, he sets out to find her (Taylor Schilling), the sister of his fallen comrade. Logan conveniently finds her and comes on as your typical hunky veteran handyman. The film is soft-serve Sparks, and the leads are a bit skittish, but it’s easy enough on the eyes.

Tech N9ne

By Michelle Franco

Aaron Dontez Yates, a.k.a. Tech N9ne, is on his way to making rap history with his Hostile Takeover tour. It covers 90 cities in 99 days, making it the longest hip-hop tour ever. If you factor in the tremendous energy the 40-year-old puts into every performance, the difficulty of the challenge is apparent. For his Las Vegas stop, Tech N9ne was at Day 25 and still fast-rapping with gusto.
