"Godzilla" is a terrific piece of entertainment that doesn’t insult its audience and gives us more than our money’s worth.

"John Wayne: The Life and Legend" is a thoughtful, well-written book. Even if you’re familiar with Wayne’s career, chances are you’ll learn things you didn’t know; I certainly did.

"Belle" is handsome and well-cast with Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who made an impression on me in Tom Hanks’ "Larry Crowne," in the title role.
