Production designer John Myhre won Oscars for his work on director Rob Marshall's 2002 period musical "Chicago" and his 2005 drama "Memoirs of a Geisha." He's also supplied the eye-popping looks for the 2006 musical "Dreamgirls" and last year's fantasy thriller "Wanted." But for all that, perhaps his most creative project is his latest, the musical "Nine," opening Dec.18. Marshall directed this lavish adaptation of the Broadway musical hit, itself based on the 1963 Fellini film "8 1/2 ," about a movie director (Daniel Day-Lewis)

What happens in Disney's uproarious "The Haunted Mansion" is more creepy than scary, but it's lots of fun, which is the point, as it was with this year's other film based on a theme park ride, "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl." This is a fright show artfully designed for the whole family, a comedy that all but the most impressionable children will likely get a kick out of.

Sam Hall Kaplan is so right when he says what is needed is "planning on a block-by-block neighborhood level involving those who will be affected" (July 28). As I see it, the No. 1 problem is knowledge, and I'm not talking about those participating not being trained as architects, landscape architects and planners. What I am referring to is knowledge of what good environment consists of in terms that everyone can understand. Fortunately, Christopher Alexander has put together a comprehensive and easily understood language of design called "A Pattern Language."

"Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina" is not Tolstoy's classic novel of timeless passion but rather a traditional British period film at its most solemn and conventional. Not only does Bernard Rose's handsome, meticulous production lack that passion, but it also suffers from a miscast Anna, the married Russian aristocrat who risks everything for love in 1880 St. Petersburg. Alas, the film is almost as stodgy as Rose's take on Beethoven, "Immortal Beloved."

Canceled television series never really die -- they find new lives in repeats on cable, syndication and DVD, and sometimes even are transformed into feature films, a la "Star Trek" and "Police Squad!" "Firefly" is the latest failed series to make the move from living rooms to theaters. Created by Joss Whedon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), the sci-fi adventure premiered on Fox in 2002.
