A 2014 fall film preview 14 for 14

Written by Allen Adams

The summer of 2014 wasn't a particularly lucrative one for Hollywood. While there were plenty of action epics and sequels galore, there weren't many films that truly captured the moviegoing public's attention in a consistent way. Thus, ticket sales for the season were down.

However, now that we're making our way into autumn, the studios are offering up a wealth of new films that they hope will help make up that shortfall. 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.

The return of the Adventure Guru Contest

Written by Katy England

MILLINOCKET/THE FORKS The last time I hopped into a raft and braved the class 4 rapids of the Kennebec River was four years ago. Since then, I had triplets, which tends to lead to a distinct lack of death-defying feats of awesomeness. But now that the kids are sleeping through the night and able to eat with utensils, I've been able to wrangle some adventure back into my life.

Though it wasn't just the triplets that hindered our contest. The second half of the guru team, Pat Shaw, who would take half of the winners skydiving, took advantage of a wonderful opportunity at Waterfront Concerts. And I've discovered that due to inner-ear conditions, I'm not suitable for plane rides without copious amounts of Dramamine, so we needed someone who would be willing to take the plunge. Enter Thor Innocenti, ad sales extraordinaire and thrill seeker, willing to go above and beyond to give Maine Edge readers a good time.

Bar Harbor Ferry offers great destinations for locals and tourists

BAR HARBOR/WINTER HARBOR As the weather warms up and tourists roll in, those of us who frequent the Bangor area sometimes avoid the tourist hot spots due to congestion. And when the tour ships sail into Bar Harbor, it can get crazy but that doesn't mean we shouldn't go. You just have to think outside the downtown.

Waterville goes to the movies with MIFF

Written by Allen Adams

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.

Mark Miller A Life of Music

Written by Mike Dow

As I watch him gently lift the perfectly-tuned guitars from their cases, I think 'This man treats his instruments as if they are his best friends.' He cradles them while his fingers fall over the strings and a smile appears on his face. If they could speak (and in his hands they can), they might ask, 'Are you going to make me sing, cry or laugh today?' On a typical night, they will do all three.

It's a gorgeous early summer day on the Bangor Waterfront and I'm meeting up with guitarist Mark Miller for a photo session near the water followed by a conversation over lunch at the Sea Dog Brewing Company next door.
