A few fall films 15 for 15

Written by Allen Adams

The summer of 2015 was a good one for the box office, featuring a number of record-breaking films including a few that cleared the billion-dollar hurdle. Massive blockbusters were thick on the ground, and while there were a few duds, there weren't as many as you might expect. All told, it was a pretty great cinematic summer.

However, just because autumn has arrived doesn't mean that there's going to be a massive drop-off. In fact, there's plenty to like in the fall of 2015. There are box office giants and popular properties and a few prestige pictures as well; it's time to take a look at some of what's in store. This past weekend really marked the start of the fall season, with films such as 'Black Mass' and 'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials' (both reviewed in this week's edition) hitting the screen, but there's more much more on the way.

Multiple Points of View

A look back on the kiddos and mom life

It was around this time four years ago that I wrote about Three New Englands (Aug. 24, 2011), and I've kept tabs on them in the paper. Rather than re-cap everything I've written already, I thought I'd bring you all behind the scenes to the lead-up and the reaction of some friends and family to the news. I'll also include some anecdotes, dos-and-don'ts and other observation that I haven't written about (or I forgot I wrote about).

A swing through history

Written by Allen Adams

Visiting the National Baseball Hall of Fame

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. I've been a baseball fan for most of my life. In particular, I've always been fascinated by the game's history, not least because baseball is the most reverent of our sports when it comes to the past. It's a connection across the generations that is rare in our society. That mix of past and present is what first drew me to the game.
