LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T he classic man-vs.-nature tale of "The Perfect Storm" blew into movieplexes across the country this past weekend. In addition to a couple of reviews, we've got an interview with the screenwriter, Bill Wittliff.

With its epic scale, popular star, and a directing and producing team who specialize in holiday-weekend blockbusters, "The Patriot" seems a sure-fire bet for setting off some box-office fireworks.

Nancy Marchand is best-known as Mama Soprano on the popular HBO series, but the actress -- who died June 18 -- had a long and distinguished career.

Also, Moose and Squirrel on big screen, the rave scene gets the film treatment, and more.
