The Many Saints of Newark review – Sopranos prequel keeps it in the family

Michael Gandolfini is goosebump-inducing as the young Tony Soprano, amid race riots and antagonism towards rival African American gangsMaybe it was inevitable that the greatest TV show in history should spawn a feature-length prequel that is somehow disappointing: it is watchable but weirdly obtuse with a tricksy narrative reveal that doesn’t add much. The Many Saints of Newark, co-written by the Sopranos’ legendary creator David Chase and directed by Alan Taylor, gives us the childhood of a lea...

This has turned out to be a banner year for fans of the late director George A. Romero.

Thousands of music and craft beer fans drank and lived it up at the annual Brew Ska Ska

“How many people here were heavy on the Brew and light on the Ska Ska,” Less Than Jake vocalist-guitarist Roger Lima asked the crowd as his band closed out the 11th edition of the Brew Ha Ha craft beer and music fest (affectionately renamed Brew Ska Ska for its ska-infused lineup) at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado on Saturday.

Parents, Please Stop Doing These Things in School Group Chats

The 20 Best Sports Films Of All Time Ranked

Movies about sports are essentially genetically engineered to be feel-good stories. Although the reality of professional sports is that a very small group of elite athletes tend to win over and over again, sports film fantasies favor the underdogs. At the movies, we see teams of misfits continually beat the odds, overcoming obstacles that would cause individuals with less fortitude to stumble. And although we tend to think of the sports film as adhering pretty closely to a specific formula, ther...

Create Something Beautiful

This summer, I moved my entire office and crafting station, two separate areas in the house, into one room. It just made sense to have one space to call my own, with three kids continually taking over all the spaces in the house. I love my space, and wanted to fill it with some beautiful prints. I looked for posters online and briefly in-store (not a lot in-store as it turns out) and found Posterstore.ca and that’s where my search ended! I created this photo wall with everything sourced at Poste...

In his novel about the aftermath of 9/11, Black 47’s Larry Kirwan recalls the days after the attacks

By David Bauder Larry Kirwan traces the roots of his novel “Rockaway Blue” to the Saturday night after Sept. 11, 2001, when the band he led, Black 47, played Connolly’s Pub in Manhattan. The crowd would look to the door each time it opened, and cheer at the sight of a familiar face. Johnny’s here! Mary’s here! They’re alive.

In Ybor City Back Then

  Back in the late Fifties, before Ybor City, Tampa’s Latin quarter, was a tourist magnet, back when it still had cigar factories, during summers and Christmas vacations I worked in the bookkeeping department of the Broadway National Bank. I was one of three employed in manually alphabetizing checks as they came in, then giving them to the bookkeepers to post.   The Broadway was the Ybor City branch of Tampa’s First National and my grandfather, after his compulsory and unwelcome retiremen...

20 Movies About Aliens That You Definitely Need To Watch

Films with aliens are rarely about the aliens themselves. These interstellar visitors usually serve as metaphors for human nature, a reflection of our politics, or a means to discuss strange natural phenomena. As Stephen King explained in "Danse Macabre," his non-fiction exploration of the horror genre, the things that frighten or confuse us change shape with each generation. The aliens of the '50s and '60s were Cold War relics that played on social paranoia. The aliens of the '80s reflected con...

New Rams running back Sony Michel gets up to speed

THOUSAND OAKS — Sony Michel was a spectator Thursday when Rams regulars banged through an intrasquad scrimmage on a hot morning. He was going to have to learn the plays before he could run any. And he’d had plenty of activity over the previous 24 hours. After being told he’d been traded from the New England Patriots to the Rams at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, Michel was on the next flight out of Boston that afternoon and was being shown around his new workplace first thing the next morning.
