LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

R udy Ray Moore sees himself as a forgotten comic warrior, one who paved the way for Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor. Such claims inspire debate, but young comics such as Eddie Griffin and Paul Mooney sing his praises, as does legendary comedienne LaWanda Page.

How accurate is "Pushing Tin," the new film about air traffic controllers that stars John Cusack and Billy Bob Thornton? Not very, says a real air traffic controller. Reviews from Metro Pulse and Nashville Scene round out our triple-play.

Also at bat this week are reviews of the new Sean Connery caper flick "Entrapment" and the teen horror romp "Idle Hands," plus glimpses of "The Last Days," "Foolish," "SLC Punk," "Children of Heaven," "Paulina," "Open Your Eyes," and some clips and video.
