Celebrity Slam - (11/11/15)

Make it work

There are a lot of different ways for famous people to wind up being discussed in this space. The massive wallets and even more massive egos of celebrities allow them to speak and act in ways that are delightfully antithetical to societal mores or common sense.

It’s safe to say that things are going pretty well in New England.

The Patriots haven’t missed a beat in the second quarter of the season – they’ve gone four-for-four yet again. While the last four might not look quite as impressive as the first four, this New England team has taken care of business and built a commanding lead in the AFC East. It’s a group that has done just about everything right thus far in the 2015 season.

Ghosts of the past – ‘Spectre’

Latest Bond film a flawed but engaging experience

The cinematic landscape has been increasingly dominated with ongoing franchises in recent years; it seems that everywhere you look, there’s another co-opted creative property being turned into a multi-movie moneymaker. Like it or not, that’s the nature of the business these days.

Good grief! – ‘The Peanuts Movie’

Animated film offers nostalgic look at beloved characters

It has almost become cliché to note Hollywood’s recent reliance on mining and recycling the past, building new films on a foundation of old ideas and counting on the siren’s song of nostalgia to carry the day - there are no new ideas, no new stories being told, etc.

Kibbles and Picks 2015 – Week 9

I suppose in the grand scheme of things, it could have been worse.

Things started off well for me – my pick of Kansas City in the London game was prescient. Then I picked the Giants, but Stella took the Saints; she even called the shootout nature of the matchup (though I don’t think even she expected one of the highest scoring games in NFL history). The Ravens pulled one out against the Chargers, which turned out to be a week-saver; Stella was right in her picks of the Texans and the Raiders.

Sid and Nancy > Harry and Lisa

In many ways, famous people are just like the rest of us. They get up, they go to work, they come home. They raise their families. And they celebrate holidays…holidays like Halloween.
