'Sisters in Law' showing for free at MSU

Montana State University Leadership Institute will host the film "Sisters in Law," 7 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 23, in MSU's Procrastinator Theatre.

"Sisters in Law" is a totally fascinating, often hilarious look at the work of one small courthouse in Cameroon, Africa, where two women determined to change a village are making progress that could change the world. The tough-minded state prosecutor Vera Ngassa and Judge Beatrice Ntaba are working to help women in their Muslim village find the courage to fight often-difficult cases of abuse, despite pressures from family and their community to remain silent. The cases are appalling, ranging from the rape of young girls to abusive husbands, but the movie doesn't depress.

This international award-winning film is free and open to the public.

Hobbit movie

“The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies” better with beer

First, a note: in two hours and twenty-four minutes, Earth travels approximately 168,000 miles on its orbit. In that same time, a not inconsequential amount of beer can be consumed. Last time I sat down to watch a “Hobbit” movie, I had only two beers, not nearly enough to support nearly three hours. This time I’ve a few beers better prepared. But will it help?

'Listen Up Philip' dares you to find something to like about its characters

Sometimes a movie comes out that you hate, but you kind of have to admit that it’s pretty good all the same. Just as movies like “The Room” and “Plan 9 From Outer Space” are so bad they’re good, I aver that there is such a thing as the movie so good it’s bad. And while those bad movies are beloved for their worst qualities, I hated “Listen Up Philip” for its best qualities, the ones that make it a remarkable piece of filmmaking.
