Remember the Alamo, forget the TV show. From border to border, "James A. Michener's Texas" is weak storytelling and questionable history. You get saddle sores just from watching. Yes, ordinarily no big deal, just another of TV's mainstream historical dramas benignly punctuated by fantasy, an escapist two-parter not to be taken seriously, if taken at all. Charmless but harmless.

THIS was absolutely one of the best pieces on the making of a film ["Love in the Time of Cholera"] that I've read in years ["Crazy 'Love,' " Jan. 28]. The quotes about relationships being like bandages were remarkable. [ " ... some relationships are bandaged and re-bandaged for decades, until the bandage finally starts to unravel, revealing what was always hidden but unacknowledged."] And the thoroughness of the article was exceptional. Thanks to Reed Johnson for continuing to write responsibly and effectively and deeply.

Too much security around Susan Sarandon! That's what some who attended the big premiere of "Stepmom" thought when the great actress arrived at New York's Ziegfeld Tuesday night and also later when she appeared at the Rainbow Room party. One veteran partygoer groused that Sarandon and her guy Tim Robbins had a security team "that rivaled that of Hillary Clinton."

"I want to hear a poem where ideas kiss similes so deeply that metaphors get jealous, where the subject matters so much that adjectives start holding pro-noun rallies at city hall," says Steve Coleman. "I want to hear a poem, I want to feel a poem, I want to taste a poem. Give me your spot on the mike if you want to waste a poem."

"Abandon" is a trite psychological thriller designed to keep the audience guessing and guessing -- which is not to be confused with suspecting -- until it comes time to wrap things up and send the viewers home. The trouble with this well-worn approach to suspense is that all the while the filmmakers are upping the ante for themselves, generating expectations that they can't deliver on.
