Alice Reese, Herald-Banner movie critic, says the teen comedy "The Half of It" is a modern update on "Cyrano de Bergerac," in which a inarticulate suiter persuades a friend to write love letters to a girl he wants to romance.  In this case, the friend is also a girl and has her own feelings for the object of affection. It's available on Netflix. Alice also reviews "Snowpiercer," an apocalyptic science-fiction series on TNT based on a 2013 movie.
