Watching director Stephen Merchant's "Fighting with My Family," about a tight-knit family of professional wrestlers whose two youngest members have aspirations of making the big time, I, of course, had to think of my father.    Daniel Goldberger, a trucking company owner who submerged into the Polish underground in 1939 just before the Nazis confiscated his trucks and painted swastikas on them, was a kind but serious man. Even his jokes more often than not made a point, which played quite entertainingly against Mom's rather satiric sense of humor. Thus it is an anomaly I've never figured out that my Dad loved professional wrestling. It was as if he simply

  First things first. Unlike the 1932 Rodgers and Hart classic song "Isn't It Romantic?" director Todd Strauss-Schulson's convivially entertaining romantic comedy, "Isn't It Romantic," forsakes the question mark at title's end. All of which is either a mental slip or intended to suggest a more demonstrative, rhetorical meaning. In other words, no question about it: It Is Romantic!   In such case, an exclamation point would have been a more apt substitute for the question mark, and I would have been left without a pretentious, opening paragraph.   To tarry further, as I'm prone to do when the film in question doesn't necessitate

The phone rang, as it usually does whenever I'm sitting in the third-floor witch's hat of my haunted Victorian home in some gothic-like, small New England town with a dark past, anguishing over my Oscar picks. The voice at the other end sounded like Alec Baldwin at first.   "Want to get all your picks right this year, Iceberger?" the caller asked.   "The name's Goldberger."   "Iceberger, Goldberger, what's the difference? You want to get them all right? Want to get them so right that you'll be tired of winning?"   "Well, sure, but who are you and what's in it for you, and how do I know you know who will

"They Shall Not Grow Old," a haunting documentary commissioned by Britain's Imperial War Museum to commemorate the centennial of the conclusion of World War I is a brilliant homage, an artistic accomplishment and a must-see for film students, history buffs and cineastes alike.   While director Peter Jackson's numerous "Hobbit" and "Lord of the Rings" fantasies have long established him as a box office juggernaut, this 99-minute paean to all who found themselves engulfed, devastated, changed forever or killed in the war that was supposed to end all wars compellingly adds "groundbreaking" to the adjectives describing his filmmaking
