Drink up with comedian Ron White

Best known for the ever-present drink in his hand and the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” that made him famous, comedian Ron White is one of the more genuine performers on the planet. “I drink too much Scotch, probably,” he told the Idaho Statesman years ago. “But it’s not an act.” White is funny at least partly because audiences feel like they know the guy on stage. “... You watch me perform, I don’t push at all,” White said. “I just let ’em come to me, and just tell them the truth.”

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ a thinking person’s action movie

This is turning into the season of superheroes battling other superheroes, but “X-Men: Apocalypse” is the first one, so far, to do it right. One of the best of the “X-Men” films, the new entry is full of finely crafted action, all of it in the service of interesting and well-thought-out ideas. Neither resting on formula nor audience goodwill, the “X-Men” series is going deeper and getting better as it goes along.
