Celebrity Slam - (04/29/15)

Sad, stupid Sandler

The name Adam Sandler has long been associated with some of the worst dreck to come out of Hollywood. Make no mistake – I still have a soft spot for some of his earlier work, along with out-of-the-box films like “Punch Drunk Love” and the much-maligned “Funny People.”

Novel explores overlooked period in literary history

Historical fiction can be a tricky business. Its success relies heavily on an author finding a way to strike the delicate balance between historical accuracy and narrative engagement. Lean too far one way, you’ve got an overly dry, academic-feeling bore. Too far the other, you’ve got a story that – regardless of overall quality - warrants air-quotes around the word “historical.”

A hilarious history lesson in Winterport

‘The Complete History of America (Abridged)’

WINTERPORT – History is coming alive in Winterport.

Fantasy romance a surprisingly engaging offering

One of the more common twists on the standard love story formula is messing around with the notion of time, either externally (think “The Time-Traveler’s Wife”) or internally (think “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”). It allows these stories to feel less paint-by-numbers, even if it ultimately just adds another color to the palette. 

Thought-provoking sci-fi thriller the best of 2015 thus far

By now, most of us are familiar with the notion of artificial intelligence. Some of the foremost tech minds of our time have expressed varying degrees of curiosity and/or concern about the impending development of computer self-awareness. What once was the sole domain of fantastic fiction has become a seeming inevitability; the question has shifted from “if” to “when.”

Looking ahead to some summer movies

It seems a bit counterintuitive to be writing a summer movie preview before we’ve even arrived in the month of May. However, the nature of blockbuster season has changed significantly over the past few years – changed to the point that “summer” movies start hitting the screens before we’ve even reached the official first day of spring.

One for the books

The joy of Community Reading Day

BANGOR – Living as we do in an age of omnipresent technology, it can be easy to forget that the children of today are growing up in a very different world than those of us who were kids even a few short years ago.

Celebrity Slam - (04/22/15)

Wild world of sports

Here at Celebrity Slam, we have a tendency to focus on certain types of famous people. Movie stars, reality TV icons, musicians – these are the folks who tend to make appearances in this space. Their unique blend of ubiquitous visibility and self-unawareness provides nigh-endless fodder for our derisive mockery.
