*** (out of four) The movie critic part of me takes issue with the blunt uplift of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" -- that star/director Ben Stiller, pushing for epic life affirmation, needed to cue impulsive airport travel to Arcade Fire and an Icelandic bike ride to Of Monsters and Men. (Clearly the filmmaker finds Sigur Ros, also from Iceland, too abstract.) Zero people will walk out after "Walter Mitty" and ask, "So what was that movie about?" The non-critical part of me, however, rejoices in the abundance of goodness in Stiller's modern adaptation of James...

Was "Breaking Bad" a true story all along? Maybe not, but Walter White the meth dealer does exist. He lives in Lockwood, Mont., and he just got sentenced to 12 years in prison, according to the Billings Gazette. White, 53, was sentenced to nine years in federal prison Monday for possession of meth for distribution and three-and-a-half years on weapons charges. White was not a chemistry teacher at a local high school. Get the full story: The Billings Gazette Want more?

The Bears used the final pick of the sixth round of the 1998 draft on a long snapper from Duke. Fifteen years later, Patrick Mannelly still is the team's long snapper and the franchise's longest-tenured player. On Thursday he will play in his 29th Bears-Packers game, and he talked to RedEye about his experience in the NFL's oldest rivalry. Patrick Mannelly: I remember my rookie year going up there - I think we played up there first, if I remember right - but I just remember the trip up there.

You've heard the stoner arguments for legalizing pot: "Weed is 100 percent natural, dude. It's from the earth. Thomas Jefferson grew it, man. Thomas. Jefferson. " But lately the case for legalization and decriminalization of possession comes from entirely different camps, and they're using arguments with more finesse, research and economic impact than those tossed out at a party in your friend's smoke-filled basement. Witness the City Council, which is looking at reduced penalties for possession of amounts less than 10 grams.

Twenty-five years ago, the Chicago sports landscape was ruled by three men: Michael Jordan, Walter Payton and Andre Dawson. And in January 1988, the magazine Chicago Times pulled off a greater feat than having them all in the same city. They got them all in the same photo. It was such a big deal that TV stations showed up in droves. If you've got $8,000 burning a hole in your pocket, you can buy a signed print at the David Leonardis Gallery in Bucktown. The photographer is Chicagoan Marc Hauser, whose resume includes Jimi Hendrix, Julia Roberts, Woody Allen and the famous...

I'm just saying: “Breaking Bad” has become a bit overrated. Obviously, it's great. The performances are great, the ambience of dread created throughout the show's five seasons is great, the mechanisms by which the plot evolves tend to be great (although not all the time), but all told, in the cannon of long-form narratives told as television series(es), it's a been a bit overblown by the hype machine.  Again, I love “Breaking Bad”. It's as addictive as Walter White's blue meth.

Change is good, the saying goes, but for the characters in "Breaking Bad," change has been anything but good. Over its 4 1/2 seasons, the Emmy-winning AMC drama has examined, among other things, the way two men can take the same route to very different places. Timid, cancer-stricken chemistry teacher Walter White (Bryan Cranston) transformed himself into a drug kingpin and cold-blooded killer. His partner and former student, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), was a cocky addict with a "bitch" catchphrase.

Just because "Breaking Bad" is over doesn't mean the memories can't live on … in your wedding album. As the latest addition to the alterna-engagement photo hall of fame, Walter White fanatics Hannah Schuster and Mackey Macaluso staged an engagement shoot inspired by the show, complete with matching hazmat suits, a weathered RV, and a bag of faux crystal meth.   Want more?

I've watched the 2-minute trailer for the series finale of Fox's "Fringe" that hit the web today a couple times, and I still have goosebumps. "Do you have the courage to sacrifice anything?" Walter Bishop (the marvelous John Noble) asks, also saying. "I know in my soul this is what I'm supposed to do. " Things don't sound all too promising for Walter, although I have little doubt he'll be happy if he stops the Observers and saves Peter (Joshua Jackson), Olivia (Anna Torv) and Astrid (Jasika Nicole)
