Maine International Film Festival returns for 17th year
WATERVILLE – As someone who spends a lot of time going to the movies – especially in the summertime – I occasionally find myself growing weary of the same old recycled sequels and reboots that are relentlessly churned out by the Hollywood blockbuster machine. There are a lot of movies that make their way into theaters during the dog days – some are good, many are bad and precious few are great.

It’s the chance to fulfill a lifelong dream simply by writing a giant check.

Parody skewers romantic comedy genre
As someone who is a fan of good romantic comedy, I’m well aware that there are numerous tropes and clichés that litter the genre. There are certain inescapable qualities to a rom-com – good or bad.

Fourth franchise installment long and loud, tedious and terrible
However you might feel about Michael Bay as a filmmaker, you cannot dispute the simple truth that he consistently makes the sorts of movies that he wants to make. Said movies might not be your cup of tea, but it’s clear that he could not care less what you think.
On to the Knockout Stage
The group stage of World Cup 2014 has come to its conclusion. For anyone who has been following the advancement picks made by myself, my dog Stella and guest futbol expert (and “Downtown with Rich Kimball” producer extraordinaire) Bryan Stackpole, one thing is abundantly clear.
