Patriots Progress Report 2014 – First Quarter

Any hope of the 2014 edition of the New England Patriots getting off to a strong start was effectively dashed by a 41-14 drubbing by the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football. The loss leaves the Patriots with a 2-2 record.

It’s not time to panic – New England has plenty of time to make its way through the AFC East. But early performance – particularly on the offensive side – indicates a team that, for whatever reason, can’t find a way to fire on all cylinders.

Celebrity Slam - 10/01/14

Kitchen nightmare

We have been known to play it a little fast and loose with regards to the definition of “celebrity” in this space. The exponential growth of the reality television genre has given us a wealth of people who could technically be deemed famous. While this certainly waters down the value of fame, it also gives us a much wider pool from which to pluck the idiotic and unpleasant.

Vengeance, thy name is Denzel

‘The Equalizer’ offers violence, slow-burning intensity

Let me be up front - I love love LOVE me some Denzel Washington. He’s one of the biggest movie stars out there; there are a scant handful of actors who can open a movie on their name and reputation alone and he belongs with that group. For me, he can do no wrong.

Stop-motion feature is a compelling visual treat

One of the biggest cinematic beneficiaries of recent advances in technology is the animated film genre. The growth in computing power has resulted in exquisitely rendered movies that really push the boundaries of what animation can be.

Kibbles and Picks 2014 – Week 4

Well then…that was unexpected.

Frankly, both Stella and I were unprepared for the way that Week 3 played out. Somehow, some way, I managed to put up a superior score to hers for two weeks in a row. This is unprecedented – something that never happened even a single time over the course of last season.

Fool me twice…

SHELBURNE, Vt. - Police say a man who thought he was breaking into a Vermont school actually got into the local police station.

Miley celebrates Mexico

As a rule, we try our best to be relatively timely in this space. However, every once in a while, a celebrity has the gall to say or do something idiotic on a Tuesday or Wednesday night – too late for us to get them into this space with any immediacy. Most of the time, we simply shrug and find something else – there is rarely a shortage of material.

Past and present, puns and pathos

“A Slip of the Keyboard” shows the many facets of Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett is one of the most beloved authors in the world. His “Discworld” series of fantasy novels – currently 40 books deep and going strong – have sold in excess of 85 million copies and been published in 37 languages. His deft uses of humor and cultural observation have resulted in a rich and rewarding fantasy universe.

Ensemble comedy explores depths of one family’s dysfunction

Creating a believable, relatable family dynamic in a film is a difficult task. Finding the nuances and subtleties and idiosyncrasies that bubble beneath the surface in every family requires deep digging – digging that not all filmmakers are willing (or able) to do.
