‘Super 8’ is authentic, nostalgic

Let's say you are a filmmaker. How would you pay homage to more than three decades of blockbuster films? How would you pay tribute to the director who has delivered game-changing pictures such as "Jaws," "E.T.," and "The Goonies"? Well, if you're J.J. Abrams, you achieve those things by making "Super 8," the film now available on DVD and Blu-ray.

Give a gift to a local business this year

The Christmas season officially has begun. (I don't count retailers' efforts to sell Christmas decorations starting in July.) It is December now, so we really are getting close to the big day. Before you get too busy, I hope you will take a few minutes to give a special gift to a local business by nominating one of them for a quarterly Win-dex Award.
