Celebrity Slam (10/05/2016)

Can’t keep up

So it has been a little while since we talked about the Kardashian clan in this space. It’s not because they haven’t been doing the sorts of things that warrant our particular brand of Celebrity Slam attention; it’s just, well…there’s been other stuff. Plus, the possibility of burnout was very real for a while – and if we’re honest, we certainly don’t want to overexpose such fertile ground.

The kids are odd, right?

“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”

Love him or hate him, there’s no denying that Tim Burton is perhaps the weirdest big-budget auteur of his filmmaking generation. The brilliance of his early work bought him a lot of creative capital – capital that he has been spending in a variety of wild and inconsistent ways over the past decade-plus.

‘Masterminds’ fun but forgettable

Heist comedy uneven, but reasonably entertaining

It’s never a good sign when a film disappears from the schedule. While there are often extenuating circumstances, the truth is that movies that wind up stuck on the shelf should usually stay there.

Still waters run deep

“Deepwater Horizon” surprisingly effective

Dramatizing real-life events is a tricky business. Depending on the mindset, the degree with which these films ultimately reconcile with what really happened can vary wildly. Surprisingly, this is even true with the recent spate of films revisiting relatively recent events – this even despite the recounted happenings being fairly fresh in the collective consciousness.

Kibbles and Picks 2016 – Week 4

Slow and steady wins the race. At least, I hope so.

Week 3 wasn’t a great one for either Stella or I, but it was ever-so-slightly better for me. I managed a 9-7 record on last week’s slate, while she went 8-8; in essence, we simply flip-flopped our Week 2 records, leaving Stella with the same three-game lead she had after the opening week.

Great escapes

Bangor Escape Rooms opens its doors

BANGOR – You’re in an unfamiliar room. You might be with friends or family or even perfect strangers. The door shuts behind you and a clock starts running.

You have 60 minutes to make your escape.

Let’s just get this out of the way – I find the name of this game to be just a delight.
