C2 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, March 15, 2012 Entertainment PICKS OF THE WEEK "The Muppets" (PG) -- The felt hasn't faded a bit. The Muppets return with all of their innocence and silliness without coming off as too dated. The story follows Walter, a young, puppet-like fellow, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) as they go on a journey to reunite the Muppets and save the Muppet Theatre from evil oil tycoons. A bit of self-referential humor helps blow the dust off the franchise, but the rest of the show is pure new energy. The freshness has even been endorsed by the Academy, as "The Muppets" won the Oscar for best original song. Segel, who helped write the script, is a musically inclined, goofy-grin kind of guy who beams real admiration for the Muppets and fits right in as a human sidekick. "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (R) - - David Fincher ("Fight Club," "Se7en") directs this mystery-novel adap- tation with his eye for the dark and grungy. A wealthy old businessman calls on a legally troubled journalist (Daniel Craig) to solve a decades-old missing-person mystery. Craig enlists the help of the titular inked young woman (Rooney Mara), a damaged, devi- ant, sneering, whip-smart computer hacker. The film stumbles a bit in storytelling, but sells it all on style. If complicated characters and relationships taking a grim look at the demons beneath surface of Swedish society appeal to you, then pick up the book or see the Swedish film adaptation. If a slightly sillier, more veneered ver- sion is all you have time for, then this Hollywood take will do fine. "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" (R) -- This British spy flick is all about subtlety, paranoia and brain-raking anxiety. Gary Oldman plays George Smiley, a disgraced spy brought back into the agency to ferret out a double agent. It's dense, dark and darn good for those who can get their teeth into it. This is as far from 007 as a British espionage thriller can get. Make no mistake, it is a thriller -- in its own, gaunt, dimly lit, grey-skies kind of way. The twisted mysteries and intrigue can pay off as much as any chase-scene with a rocket-powered submarine/ automobile. MISCELLANEOUS STEEL BUILDINGS GUN SHOW HELP WANTED "Carnage" (R) -- In a Muppets Miss Piggy and Kermit at the Academy Awards. short opening sequence in the park, one kid hits another. When the respec- tive parents meet in a nice Brooklyn apartment to settle things amicably and maturely, things spiral into a collective tantrum by the supposedly put-together couples. Jodie' Foster, John C. Riley, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz all dig into their roles, but if you're not pulled in by the forced smiles and underly- ing hypocrisies, you'll be Twice a year my home undergoes a face lift. I refresh my living areas to either come out of hiberna- tion in the spring or cozily nestle in for the winter. Being a busy woman of humble means I look for ways to achieve a change of scene and mood with the least amount of effort. Room lifts are not perma- nent changes. If they take more than an afternoon or two, the lift becomes a chore banished to the to- do list forever. Here are some ideas for spring. Ambiance changes' with color. Go bold. Throw pillows, throws and pillow shams are the easiest way to bring bright colors into a room. Often designers look for a subtle hue in the upholstery or wallpa- per and choose a similar contrasting color. This summer, find that color and go to the opposite side of the color wheel! This may seem offensive to the eye at first, but consider the pur- pose-we are coming out of hibernation by stimu- lating the senses. Look in the closeout department or flawed merchandise sales. Mismatched or broken sets are usually the best bargains. Moving to the windows, changing or adding a valance to existing curtains changes a room. Formal drapes can be pulled back with a sharp contrasting, tailored sash (that matches the throws and pillows?).

One minute the men are calling the women's ath- area with a large stiffly, starched bow to draw back the drapes. Add a basket of silk flowers to the side- bar or table to awaken the country atmosphere. Many windows today are inset with blinds and framed with a lightweight swag rather than formal drapes. It is not too expensive to change out the swag for a different color, but I'm looking for face lifts not makeovers. Instead, purchase some silky cording about one inch in diameter. On each side of the window, gather the sheer drapes and tie the cording around it, drawing the material in and up, and allowing it to billow over the cord. Position two ties on each side at levels that satisfy your visual taste buds. The "puddles" of the swag will disappear into the billows. Add tassels to the cording if desired, or allow it to remain unseen. Simple centerpieces and table toppings will perk up a room. Begin by elimi- nating the clutter of tissue boxes and remotes. Slip them into a drawer or onto a lower shelf. Clear glass jars and vases are wonder- ful for bringing color into a room. Colored water, using child-safe food col- oring is an excellent area brightener. Jar shapes, sizes and volume are plen- tiful and combinations of shapes and colors make your choices near limit- less. Use tumbled stones or glass chips, baubles or even aquarium gravel to achieve a similar effect. Envision a large vase partially filled with decorative white stone, positioned against a warm taupe wall. Add a brightly colored entry mat, and the earthy tones become daring and creative without losing the warmth of the home. Rice paper lamp shades, reed mats, entry and area rugs all have the ability to lighten the feel of a room. Bargains are often found at tag sales and overstocked stores. Remember, room lifts are to lighten not burden, so don't let it become one !
