Every Sam Raimi Film Ranked

Perhaps one of the most interesting established directors working in Hollywood today, Sam Raimi has always bridged the gap between niche genres and the mainstream, with one foot in studio filmmaking and the other in independent cinema. His career was jumpstarted with the "Evil Dead" franchise, a series of low-budget supernatural horror films that would go on to become cult classics with legions of devoted fans around the world. But although he started in Hollywood with scary movies, Raimi has si...

This Actor Played Five Separate Roles In The Wizard Of Oz

Because of the popularity of 1939's "The Wizard of Oz," a movie that was notoriously dangerous to film, modern audiences have a great deal of information about its production. Many books have been written about "The Wizard of Oz." I recommend "The Making of The Wizard of Oz: Movie Magic and Studio Power" (1977) by Aljean Harmetz for a good historical view of film production in 1939. But even for those of us who have seen the film dozens if not hundreds of times, there may be details, lyrics, nua...

Keeping Seattle In The News

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province, It has been just over a year since the NHL granted the Emerald City its 32nd franchise and while a dream team of owners and executives have created some noise with our neighbours to the south, the nameless, faceless operation is still more an idea than an actual team.

Best hiking in the US

Urban hiking is no walk in the park. Somewhere between a gentle stroll and a spirited parkour session, urban hikes transform city streets, stairways, and sidewalks into metropolitan trails laced with both natural and cultural landmarks. Generally, the goal is to map a route that manages some elevation gain and takes advantage of whatever green spaces or nature retreats a city has to offer, all while keeping a brisk enough pace to get in a solid workout. Not all cities are particularly walkabl...
