‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ review: Weak Tim Burton fantasy overstuffed with effec

Now and then, "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" reminds you director Tim Burton still has it, in bulk. My favorite image dominates one of the movie's posters. It depicts an ethereal young woman being flown like a kite by the seaside. Another image, in the trailers, shows a wide-eyed...

With new album, Baltimore’s Natural Velvet lets the anger out

One moment, Natural Velvet — a band of mostly Maryland Institute College of Art graduates — is discussing its music in abstract terms, crediting lyrical inspiration to metaphors and aesthetic theory. Not long after, members are comparing themselves to manga characters.

“Basically, we aim to be...

As long as logic and originality aren’t your thing, ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’ delivers the desired chi

For a horror sequel built around a foundation of genre trends, “Ouija: Origin of Evil” contains far more goofy-spooky-fun than one might expect. This prequel to 2014’s “Ouija” takes the retro approach that has made “The Conjuring” franchise so appealing, and layers it on top of the classic “little...

Natalie Portman makes her directorial debut with the touching Israeli memoir ‘A Tale of Love and Dar

Actors gravitate toward passion projects, films they care deeply, even obsessively about, but the end result is hardly ever as convincing as "A Tale of Love and Darkness" a film of beautiful melancholy written, directed by and starring Natalie Portman.

A Hebrew-language film based on the celebrated...

‘Central Intelligence’ is a surprisingly smart bromance between Hart and Johnson that explores male

“Central Intelligence” is dumb in all the right ways, and also a bit smarter than you might expect. It jams together two frequently incompatible Hollywood modes — the comedy and the action movie — and somehow doesn’t wind up feeling like an oil-and-water exercise: It’s more like oil and paint thinner....

At Home Maid in Federal Hill, fresh breakfast food comes with long wait
BaltimoreSun.com / Wed, 26 Oct 2016 11:23:58 PDT

This may be Baltimore's cutest restaurant: Home Maid in Federal Hill is decked out in kitschy rooster wallpaper, old-time photos and mismatched tables, sort of like Pottery Barn meets Aunt Bee's kitchen.

The restaurant concentrates on breakfast with a minimalist menu that focuses on specialties...

Evelyn Ruiz stood in the afternoon sun of an Orange Avenue parking lot last Wednesday, watching a mural emerge on the side of a bagel shop. In shades of lavender and purple, hands spelled out the word "LOVE" amid a growing tribe of orange blossoms.
