‘The Book of Life’ a lively treat

Animated film offers a glimpse of The Day of the Dead

There’s nothing wrong with cinema that is inspired by other source material. Reinventing a tale within the boundaries of a new medium is one of the foundations of storytelling. That said, it is undeniably intriguing when an original idea makes its first appearance on the screen.

The sound and the ‘Fury’

Film tells tale of tank warfare in WWII

Most movies can be easily summed up in a single sentence. That’s how these things tend to be pitched. However, there are relatively few that can be summed up in a single sentence that will make me actively want to see said movie.

The ugly beauty of ‘Beautiful You’

Palahniuk’s latest satirizes sex, consumer culture

There are few contemporary writers with the knack for subversion and satire that Chuck Palahniuk brings to the table. There’s a transgressive aggression to his work that carries an undeniable impact.

Kibbles and Picks 2014 – Week 7

I figured that there was no way I could possibly top the 13-2 record I put up in Week 5. So of course, I promptly do ever-so-slightly better in Week 6 by putting up a 13-1-1 thanks to the Carolina/Cincinnati tie.

I honestly don’t know what’s happening. I’ve apparently been entering some sort of pundit fugue state when making my picks over the past two weeks. 26-3-1? How is that even possible? The only game I missed last week was Dallas/Seattle; hard to fault picking the Seahawks.

Celebrity Slam - 10/15/14

Martian Chronicles

It’s an unfortunate reality that since The Maine Edge is a weekly publication, Celebrity Slam also appears just once per week. Thus, we often find ourselves at a loss when a famous person goes off the rails midweek. Most of the time, we simply accept our fate and move forward.

Cary Elwes book tells the tale of making of “The Princess Bride”

It’s difficult to say just what makes a film transcend mere popularity to become a true pop cultural touchstone. When a variety of factors are combined in just the right amounts at exactly the right time, a movie can become an integral part of an entire generation or even generations.

A not-so-bad ‘Very Bad Day’

‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’

The realm of children’s movies has been more or less dominated by animation in recent years. It seems that the current cinematic climate doesn’t have much room for live-action films aimed specifically at the younger set. There are exceptions, of course, but it seems that we see far fewer of those sorts of films these days.
