The Dark Knight Rises

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

Christopher Nolan’s third installment in his Batman reboot trilogy is intense. Maybe too intense. The slaughter piles higher and higher, each triumph feeling like a reprieve from the next 9/11. Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) has slunk into exile. Bane (Tom Hardy) has taken the Joker’s place and plans to loose anarchy on Gotham. What follows is refreshingly not 3-D, and mostly not CGI. This one is good, but a bit much.

Surf Soon Won't Get Around Anymore

Tide's out—or more accurately, never came in—for Surf: The Musical Just after the Beach Boys-flavored musical began paddling out into the crowded Vegas entertainment scene, the Strip's latest jukeboxer is set to close next week, only four weeks past its July 17 official opening, which was preceded by nearly three weeks of previews.  Weak ticket sales since the opening reportedly hastened the decision to let Surf disappear beneath the waves.
