NEW IN THEATERS
In this Oscar-nominated thriller for ‘Best Motion Picture’, Tom Hanks plays the skipper of the cargo ship Maersk Alabama that was hijacked in 2009 off the coast of Somalia. Knowing the bookends to this piracy incident on the high-seas beforehand--how it started and dramatically ended--I didn’t quite expect this movie to keep my rapt attention like it did.

(CNN) -- The 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards were handed out at Los Angeles' Shrine Exposition Center on January 18.
Seven years ago, Director Paul Greengrass gave us “United 93.” Greengrass’ vision was bold and pulled no punches, easily making it the best post-9/11 film to date. Everything Greengrass brought to the table in “United 93” is displayed in “Captain Phillips.” This is another intensely shot, authentically edited true story about ordinary people forced to step up during a catastrophe. Is it the masterpiece that “United 93” was? Not quite, but that’s a really tough act to beat.

Jan. 4, 2006 - They meandered down the trail, a long line of horseback riders raising a small cloud of dust barely visible from the road. Some of the riders had smiles on their faces, while the wranglers leading the trail ride appeared more subdued, perhaps even a bit weary, as they came closer to the stopped vehicle at the entry to the ranch. Instead of waiting to find out how the horses and novice riders would react to a moving vehicle, the wranglers stopped the ride and waved the car forward. Once it had passed, the ride continued toward the corral, the "dudes" unaware of the concerns of the wranglers. The horses had not reacted adversely to the running vehicle and none of the guests had ended up on their butts or heads. It was just another item for guests to add to a letter home about their day at the White Stallion Ranch - "The ride was wonderful, and the horses as gentle as could be."
