I have a love-hate relationship with Woody Allen. But lately we’ve been all hearts and flowers. First the very British “Match Point,” then the Latin romance of “Vicki Cristina Barcelona,” and now the airy delicious soufflé that is “Midnight in Paris.” Allen seems an ex-patriot by now, he’s been gone so long. But we’re the better for it if this grand tour inspires him to create such wonderful little films as this.

There is a lot of monkey business in this movie, and I see a trend developing. First, the little pirate monkey in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” and now the cute primate that latches on to the lost boys of “H2.” One thing is for sure: If the show’s not funny, you can always cut to the monkey.

Like father, like son … The Art Museum of Southeast Texas (AMSET) presents Randy and Bryan Welborn: Moments to Remember, the artwork of father/son duo Randy and Bryan Welborn, in Café Arts June 2 through Aug. 7. This exhibition features 15 paintings from the Welborn’s nostalgic painting series Moments to Remember. Randy, a native Southeast Texan who now resides in Kountze, captures life growing up in Beaumont during the 1950s.

The dust has barely settled from the Lutcher Theater’s 2010-2011 season and folks are already calling trying to purchase their season tickets for the 2011-12 season. This year’s lineup boasts some pretty big productions coming to our fair neighbors in Orange, and if we can make one recommendation, that would be to go ahead and get your tickets early.

The music industry is one of constant change. One thing is for certain though — Papa Roach is a mainstay in the rock world.

The rockers from Sacramento celebrated 10 years of greatness last September with the release Time for Annihilation, which is a 14-track disc with five new songs and nine live recordings of some of their best hits like “Getting Away with Murder,” “...To Be Loved,” “Lifeline,” “Scars” and “Last Resort.”
