One of the challenges inherent to working in the realm of speculative fiction is finding new ways to explore standard genre tropes. After decades upon decades of sci-fi storytelling, it can be difficult to find interesting takes on ideas that appear to be more or less creatively exhausted.

Patriots Progress Report – First Quarter

If this first quarter of the season is any indication, 2017 is going to be one hell of an up-and-down roller coaster ride for fans of the New England Patriots.

Considering that there were serious conversations about New England’s chances of running the table before the season started, it’s tough not be disappointed with a 2-2 start. Yes, there have been a number of injury issues that have contributed to these early struggles, but still – sitting at .500 after four games is not where anyone expected this team to be.

That’s not to say that the season’s first month has been all bad. There have been plenty of things to be excited about. And hey – up and down, round and round, it’s still the Patriots.

And now, the Progress Report.

Road to the World Series 2017

Another long MLB season has come to an end. All 162 regular season games have been played. And a of this writing, just 10 remain with a chance to take home a World Series championship. Two-thirds of the league’s teams have packed it in and headed home for a long winter of wondering what might have been and awaiting the arrival of next spring and the ever-present hope that that season brings.

‘Flatliners’ dead on arrival

Hollywood’s current tendency toward remakes and reboots of preexisting properties isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes, the right filmmaking team can take an older idea and breathe new life into it, creating something that both honors the source material and brings something uniquely its own to the table. The end result can be a really enjoyable movie.

Other times, a filmmaking team can completely miss whatever it was that made a property engaging in the first place and create something that is utterly devoid of anything remotely resembling value – entertainment or otherwise. That end result can be a truly terrible movie.

A movie like “Flatliners.”

Celebrity Slam (10/04/2017)

Epcot red card

One of the truths that one learns from working on a weekly feature such as Celebrity Slam is that in many ways, famous people are just people. Sure, they live lives in which they are celebrated and richly rewarded, but they’re also perfectly capable of saying stupid things and behaving like idiots.

Criminal Mischief (10/04/2017)

Where’s the beef?

HARRINGTON – Law enforcement officials got a little bit more than they bargained for when a bull went full china shop on the town of Harrington.

At around 10 a.m. on the morning of Sept. 29, Trooper Jeff Taylor was called to a “bull at large” on the Wilson District Road in Harrington. The bull had destroyed a mo-ped, killed a cat and attempted to gain entry into a nearby house, prompting the call to authorities.

'American Made' flies high

Are we running out of movie stars?

One of the unanticipated side effects of the current trend toward blockbuster franchise building is a sense of interchangeability with regards to the actors. That’s not to say there aren’t gifted actors floating around in spandex or grittily shooting bad guys; there certainly are. It just doesn’t matter as much anymore which specific gifted actor it might be. These films are about the property, not the performer.
