THE SALINA JOURNAL encore! FRIDAY, MAY 4, 2001 03 Theater ALONG CAME A SRDER ** CENTRAL RATED R Morgan Freeman returns as Dr. Alex Cross, hero of "Kiss the Girls," in another thriller where a mad criminal constructs a diabolical puzzle for him to solve. BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY CENTRAL RATED R "Bridget Jones's Diary," a beloved book about a heroine both lovable and human, has been made against all odds into a funny and charming movie that understands the charm of the original and preserves it. Renee Zellweger stars a 32-year-old Londoner who smokes, drinks and eats too much and determines to reform herself and find the Right Man. Hugh Grant and Colin Firth play the candidates, in a comedy that gives almost unreasonable pleasure as it celebrates her bumpy transition. CROCODILE DUNDEE IN LOS ANGELES •* MID-STATE RATED PG Another retread of the original formula, in which Croc pits his genial naivete and utter competence against the hazards of the big city. Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski star again. DRIVEN CENTRAL RATEDPG-13 Burt Reynolds owns a racing team with a hot young rookie (Kip Pardue) and a veteran (Sylvester Stallone). Lots of crashes, nonstop action, wall-to-wall music, good guys and smiley-face ending. JOE DIRT MID-STATE 'RATED PG-13 David Spade stars as a white trash orphan who tours the country like a low-rent Forrest Gump. THE MUMMY RETURNS CENTRAL RATED PG-13 Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz are back from the first pic- ' ture, married and parents of an 8- year-old. In Egypt they awaken an even more ominous ancient curse than before, leading to a battle involving the Scorpion King, who looks like a lobster tail and is played by The Rock (of WWF fame) in an appearance so short that "cameo" would be stretching it. Not as much fun as the original. ONE DAY IN SEPTEMBER ART CENTER CINEMA RATED R In September 1972, Palestinian terrorists invaded the Munich Olympiad and took Israeli athletes hostage. Eventually 11 Israelis and five of the eight terrorists were killed. Kevin Macdonald's documentary argues that much of the bloodshed resulted from comic-opera bungling on the part of German authorities. He has interviews, with many participants and eyewitnesses, most re- , markably Jamal Al Gashey, the one surviving terrorist, still in hiding. Filled with remarkable reporting, marred by a docu-thriller style that becomes exploitative, especially in an offensive closing montage. ONE NIGHT AT McCOOL'S CENTRAL RATED R Liv Tyler plays a femme fataie who mesmerized three victims: a bartender (Matt Dillon), a lawyer (Paul Reiser) and a cop (John Goodman). They tell their stories to listeners; Dillon hires a hit man (Michael Douglas), Reiser hires a shrink (Reba McEntire), Goodman turns to a priest. We see Tyler through three sets of eyes, and each guy imagines a different version of the other two. SPY KIDS CENTRAL RATED PG Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino play enemy spies who fall in love and marry When they're kidnapped, it's up to their kids to rescue them, in a colorful, cheerful, inventive movie. TOWN & COUNTRY CENTRAL RATED R A romantic comedy about married couples that stars Warren Beatty, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton among others, but it's top heavy oh talent and too light on story.

Road Dog Studios, owned by Brett Maltbie, and Studio 1117 owned by Aaron Householter. For "Long Time Comin'," Vaughn relied on longtime players Tom Pestinger on drums and Larry Avery on keyboards and Hammond organ and the group's original bassist, Don Schwartz. Also mixed in are some new faces, including Maltbie, who joined forces as engineer, guitarist, back-up vocalist, co-producer and co-arranger, and Tara Pestinger — Tom's daughter — as background vocalist and female lead singer on the hip- hop-inspired track "Lover Man." Salinan Bill Jones, who has been with the band for about six years, sang lead vocals on three songs. Vaughn also brought in Tom Hall, Kansas City Kan., as lead vocalist on nine songs. HaU's last solo album found some chart success in the United States, reaching No. 29 on a couple of adult contemporary charts. Hall's lead vocals were recorded in the Berry Music Ground Studio in Kansas City. The album was mastered by Kerry Livgren at Grandyzine Studio in Topeka. Livgren was a founding member of the group Kansas and helped produce and write the group's classic hits, including "Dust in the Wind" and "Carry on Way word Son." Creativeness and inventiveness in engineering some songs resulted in a fuller, richer soxmd, none more so than the instrumental lead track, "Overture." For the song, engineers mixed together sounds of the pipe organ in Bethany College's Presser Hall, a choir, the sounds of big blowers in a car wash and, with help from the Union Pacific Railroad, the rumble of three freight trains. Vaughn described "Long Time Comin' " as music with a "bluesy '60s or '70s feel and a large band sound, but all original music." The band has signed with two national promoters, Jerome . Promotions and Marketing, Norcross, Ga., and ADD Promotions, Ridgefield, Conn., to market the CD to radio stations in the top 40 secondary markets. nationally. Jerome has worked with artists such as REM, Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Back­ street Boys. The hope is to get airplay that will get the group noticed and signed by a major record label. Vaughn said about 240 stations should receive their copies of the CD this week. "If we can get regular spin on 50 to 100 stations, we'll be doing well," he said. • Reporter David Clouston can be reached at 823-6464, Ext. 131, or by e-mail at sjdclouston ' Wheee the Iiui Ham Sets".
