We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Two solid entries from last fall are the big names this week: Disney's non-Pixar animated adventure Bolt, and a slightly-less-animated Daniel Craig returning as James Bond in Quantum of Solace. The former is a solidly entertaining effort, mostly thanks to the comic-relief provided by Rhino, the fanboy hamster buddy of the titular TV hero (who doesn't actually realize that his death-defying adventures are fake). And while Quantum finds director Marc Forster fumbling a bit as he tries to put together action sequences, Craig's 21st-century take on 007 continues to give the series renewed vigor.

On the more obscure side, Watchmen purists who wanted even more in the current movie can finally experience the excised sub-plot in Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter. As the movie sinks at the box office, maybe the additional tie-in content is seeming less and less like a wise financial bet.
