Mark Kennedy, Associated Press Published 6:47 PM EST Dec 13, 2018 You might be forgiven for feeling superhero overload this holiday season. Had enough of, say, Spider-Man for a while? Well, this may sound nuts, but you’ll enjoy watching not just one web slinger but five of them in the animated “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” Instead of overload, you’ll be begging for more. The film gleefully scrambles the notion that there can be only one friendly neighborhood Spider-Man and offers the exciting idea that Spidey can be anyone. He can be a girl. He can be a middle-aged dude with a paunch. He can even be a cartoon pig. It’s hard to underestimate what this means. “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” does what comics and graphic novels have long experimented with: It opens up a universe of possibilities. “Anyone can wear the mask. You can wear the mask,” we are told. The result is a film that’s fantastically fresh, both … [Read more...] about Too much Spider-Man? Not in ‘The Spider-Verse’

Updated on August 9, 2018 by Ella Buchan Lobster, lighthouses and landscapes laced with history – all were on my Maine road trip itinerary and here proved the perfect place to kick off my great American adventure down the east coast. Stretching from Fort Kent at the northern tip of Maine before migrating its way for 2,369 miles to the semi-tropical climes of Key West in the Florida Keys, few roads can lay claim to as much historical importance as the US Route 1. US1 follows the entirety of the east coast, connecting all 13 of the original colonies, where pilgrims settled in the 17th century. It started life as a trail and later a wagon road, developing in tandem with increased communication between colonies. George Washington himself travelled on this route. Yet it hasn’t quite reached the dizzy levels of road trip fame as Route 66 and California’s Highway 1 – which makes an adventure down this rather underrated road even more appealing Equipped with my … [Read more...] about Places to go in Maine – a US road trip itinerary

Our Travel Auctions Sort Bypopularlatestending Towering jungle covered peaks rise out of the deep blue Pacific Ocean, and palm-fringed beaches give way to glorious surf and quiet bays. The islands of Hawaii are simply spectacular. The islands belong to the United States of America as the 50th and most recent state to have joined the USA. Luxury resorts here are large and all sit right on the beach. Some rooms are so close to the ocean that the sound of the sea will lull you to sleep. My personal take on Hawaii is that these islands offer an otherworldly place to escape to when … [Read more...] about Top 10 Best Luxury Hotels & Resorts In Hawaii

I am wandering inside the Pizitz Food Hall, past grand pillars, under a soaring ceiling, trying to decide what to have for lunch. In the center of the sleek space, a colorful tower of bottles rises behind a marble bar, where at midday, small groups of people are enjoying cocktails. I settle on Nepalese dumplings, which have won out over Israeli falafel, Ethiopian injera, Vietnamese banh mi and something a tad more traditional around here: Southern biscuits.This dining experience — a collection of globally inspired food vendors in a repurposed 1923 department store — is not what I expected to find in downtown Birmingham, Ala. I lived in this Southern city more than a decade ago and back then, about the only dumplings in town were bready and came atop chicken stew. They certainly were not the ginger- and veggie-filled steamed pockets that I had for lunch. Downtown was sleepy and the food scene leaned toward barbecue and meat-and-threes, cafeterias where patrons decide which … [Read more...] about Jeremiah Oliver’s killer still walking free
