Running Time: 116 minutes

This film from Sony Pictures is currently playing in cinemas.

It may be due to oversaturation and a string of less-than-thrilling adventures, but superhero tales have been struggling recently. There has been an exception or two, but for the most part critics and audiences have begun turning up their noses at some of these titles. Madame Web introduces a new character existing in the city home to Spider-Man. Despite the concept’s potential, the film doesn’t land successfully and sadly marks a new low in the Marvel Universe.

The story begins in 1975 with a very pregnant explorer named Constance (Kerry Bishé), who is searching...

A culinary journey with red lentil dal

Are you ready to tantalize your taste buds with a culinary adventure? While we might not be jetting off to distant lands anytime soon, we can certainly embark on a delicious journey right from our own kitchens. So, let’s fasten our apron strings and take a flavorful trip to India with a classic dish: Red Lentil Dal.

Dal (also spelled “dahl,” “daal” or “dhal,” but I’m sticking with “dal”) is the Indian name for dried, split pulses (like lentils, peas and beans) that don’t require pre-soaking. Dal, in its various forms, is a global nutritional powerhouse, transcending cultural boundaries and culinary preferences. Whether it’s...

On Feb. 26, 1917, the Original Dixieland Jass (later Jazz) Band recorded “Livery Stable Blues,” the world’s first jazz record, for the Victor Talking Machine Company in New York. That same year, the group also made the first appearance of a jazz band in a motion picture, a silent film titled “The Good for Nothing.”

On Feb. 27, 1938, a new mascot design was created by Chris Klein and C. Karnstadt for use by the Pontiac car brand, in the form of an Indian maiden. The theme was inspired by connections with the General Motors war chief who was employed in the GM manufacturing division.

On Feb. 28, 1983, the final episode of “M*A*S*H,” a series about the staff of an Army...

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: My dog Trey is a 3-year-old mixed breed, mostly Lab, who pulls at his leash every time we go out for a walk. I don’t want to use a choke collar, because it seems painful and counterproductive to punish him every time he tries to pull ahead. How can I get Trey to walk next to me and not tug all the time? — Bill in New Orleans

DEAR BILL: Dogs love being outside and exploring. That’s a big reason why Trey is tugging at his leash — he wants to run and explore everything in the world. But that’s not possible in the city. And for the sake of your leash-holding arm, getting Trey to relax is a big deal.

You’re probably saying, “Oh, this is where Sam tells us...
