Filmmaker Joshua Tunick looks to Kickstarter for funds to complete movie
BANGOR – A local filmmaker needs a hand in getting his latest project to the finish line.
Long-awaited debut novel exceeds the hype
When a work of popular art – a book, a movie, a television show, an album – is subject to massive publicity in advance of its release, it can be nearly impossible for said work to live up to the hype. A bar set too high almost inevitably leads to disappointment.
When Particles Collide has been called ‘the hardest working rock duo in New England’ and there is certainly evidence to back that claim. The pair has returned with their seventh disc in five years and a packed summer tour schedule to support it.
Dynamic Kevin Hart/The Rock pairing offers comedic chemistry
It’s relatively easy to make a passable action comedy. Just string together a handful of jokes with some decently-crafted action sequences into something vaguely resembling a plot, then toss a few recognizable faces into the mix. Boom – a serviceable and (probably) not-terrible action comedy.
BANGOR - Penobscot Theatre Company has received a $100,000 award from Grants to Green, a program jointly administered by The Maine Community Foundation, Maine Development Foundation and Efficiency Maine Grants to provide environmentally focused knowledge and funding to strengthen nonprofits.

Book offers a look back at some of the era’s most enduring films
Nostalgia – particularly pop culture nostalgia – is a powerful thing. Many of us are bound with an ongoing and eternal affection for the things that we loved during our formative years. Sometimes, that affection is justified; other times, not so much.
Likeable, talented cast can’t quite save magical misfire
The summer of 2016 has already seen a number of unnecessary sequels. Due to unanticipated degrees of box office success, certain movies have been tapped to receive sequels despite having already told their story to a more or less satisfactory conclusion. These non-franchise sequels almost always turn out to be disappointments.
Video game adaptation offers interesting visuals, messy narrative
Video game adaptations have long been among the toughest nuts for Hollywood to crack.
