"Tiger & Bunny the Movie: The Rising" puts such a radical spin on superhero comics that it almost reads as satire. The film boasts a Justice League of its own, but one reminiscent of a professional sports league complete with stars, duds, corporate sponsors, a farm system and even an ancillary television network that literally keeps score on these avengers. To recap for the "Tiger & Bunny" uninitiated, the film follows a short-lived anime television series and a 2012 movie ("The Beginning")

The iconic Statue of Liberty, positioned in New York Harbor to welcome those entering the United States, stands as a symbol of what's best about our country and the freedom it has offered so many. But it was only when I visited Lady Liberty for the first time recently that I discovered something else she represents: an early example of crowdfunding. A display in the museum on Liberty Island describes how, in 1885, Joseph Pulitzer ran an appeal to readers of his newspaper the New York World for funds to build the statue's pedestal.

The large wave hit the Moby Dick Restaurant on Stearns Wharf about 9:30 a.m., crashing through a window that was shattered, most likely by debris picked up from the damaged pier, floor manager Gerry Mora told The Times. Patrons were "mostly just shocked and stunned," he said.

Alain Resnais, the French filmmaker whose intellectual experiments with time, memory and imagination yielded such celebrated films as "Last Year at Marienbad," has died. He was 91. Resnais was editing drafts of his next project even from his hospital bed, his longtime producer, Jean-Louis Livi, told the Associated Press. Resnais, who died Saturday, was renowned for reinventing himself during each of his full-length films, which included the acclaimed "Hiroshima Mon Amour" in 1959 and most recently "Life of Riley," which was honored at the Berlin Film Festival just weeks ago. In France, he won two Césars, the French equivalent of the Oscars, and, in 2009, received a lifetime achievement award at the Cannes International Film Festival.

(Disclaimer: Written while fully appreciating every second of this insane and transient journey) OK, so, throughout our entire "Frozen" press tour that began some four months ago, the question I've been asked most is: What is the hardest part about being a female director? During production, I might have picked the infamous notes sessions that occurred every 12 weeks in our story room, where about 40 of my fellow directors, writers and story artists bombarded us with notes and tore our film apart.
