One man’s quest to teach himself to throw it down

The slam dunk is one of the purest expressions of athleticism in any sport. The sheer physical impressiveness of the feat is such that the term itself has been incorporated into our vernacular as a synonym for rousing success.

A lukewarm ‘Hot Pursuit’

Talented leads can’t overcome lackluster story

One of the downsides of a massively anticipated release such as the latest Avengers movie is that it makes rival studios reticent to send their own films out there to get destroyed at the box office.

The meandering dead – ‘Maggie’

Slow pace, thin story undermine interesting concept

Red Sox Report Card – April 2015

Isn’t it nice to have baseball back?

After the seemingly endless winter, the return of baseball was a wonderful reminder of the spring that was to come. Sure, it’s been a little longer arriving than we’d have liked, but still – it’s here.

Superhero sequel serves as worthwhile successor to first film

It’s safe to say that 2012’s “The Avengers” was one of the most successful films of all time. It grossed just over $1.5 billion at the box office. It was critically acclaimed and roundly praised as a worthy culmination to the long-form construction of the first phase of what has come to be known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
