‘Need For Speed’ crashes and burns

Video game adaptation all flash, no flavor

In the past decade-plus, the nature of video game narrative has evolved. The quality of storytelling has advanced in quantum leaps since the early days. Video games are a legitimate artistic medium that can transcend the visual.

Play ball!

It’s that time of year once again. The snow is melting and the grass is showing through. That whiff of spring is in the air.

Celebrity Slam - March 12th, 2014

Heeeere’s Johnny!

Like it or not, we live in a world where celebrity can be gained through nothing more than filming yourself getting busy. The number of “sex tape celebrities” out there is too numerous to count; it seems like every time you turn around, some D-lister or another won’t shut up about how a video has been “leaked” – often to the tune of six figures. It has become a shortcut to the spotlight, creating or reigniting careers that probably shouldn’t exist in the first place.

Bangor, Orono among regional winners

Memories of hardball and hardwood still echo following the recent high school basketball tournaments here in Maine – memories of hard-fought, hard-won games.

Some thoughts on filling out your brackets

Animated adventure appeals to young and old alike

As a child, I was a huge fan of the work of Jay Ward. “The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show” was a staple of my childhood Saturday mornings. Granted, I came along a touch after the show’s heyday, but it was still a personal favorite.

‘300: Rise of an Empire’ sinks

Sequel has all of the blood, none of the spirit

In the Hollywood of today, there’s a lot of money to be made from a sequel. If a particular property achieves a great deal of success, it only stands to reason that the studios would attempt to cash in on that success again (and again and again, ad infinitum).

Celebrity Slam - March 5th, 2014

Stand up, pass out

Some of the best material we get here at Celebrity Slam springs from famous folks who can’t quite handle their booze. We all know people who fail to understand their limits from time to time – and we all know just how hilarious that can become.
