    She's as pretty as a pop star (and quite possibly swift). Taylor is softer than a marshmallow peep and sweeter than a basket of candy eggs. The 3-year-old homeless Harrier hound is delightfully medium — just 30 pounds. Taylor is housebroken, mild-mannered, spayed, …

    She's as pretty as a pop star (and quite possibly swift). Taylor is softer than a marshmallow peep and sweeter than a basket of candy eggs. The 3-year old homeless Harrier hound is delightfully medium -- just 30 pounds. Taylor is housebroken, mild-mannered, spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped to leave the Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center and start anew. So "Spring-in for Pets" to adopt Taylor (ID#25177574) and enjoy free family fun at the April 4 First Saturday Celebration at the center, 440 Falkenburg Road.

    Movies

    What a pleasure to see Al Pacino cut loose in Danny Collins, having fun acting again. Not that he hasn't enjoyed performing, but sitting through much of his past decade of movie work has been a chore.

    Al Pacino turns in a terrific, restrained performance as a fading ’70s rock star in Danny Collins.

    Movies

    Finally rising from the pages of 20th century Bengali literature, meet Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, India's Sherlock Holmes. (The Big Bang Theory fans might remember an episode last year that took issue with this description; Raj insisted Sherlock Holmes was actually "the English Byomkesh Bakshi.")

    Sushant Singh Rajput, right, stars in Detective Byomkesh Bakshy.
