Movies: "X-Men: First Class"

 

The mighty Marvel megaplex money machine marches on.  With “Thor” still in theaters and “Captain America” waiting in the wings, the Marvel megalith rolls out what may turn out to be the best comic book movie this summer, a prequel titled “X-Men: First Class.”

 

Directed by Matthew Vaughan, whose previous movie “Kick-Ass” was really a comic book spoof enlivened by a dirty-mouthed tweener, the new “X-Men” is lighter fare than its four predecessors, an entertaining marriage of James Bond thriller and superhero fantasy.

 

Reggae Fest on Peaks Island Returns This Sunday

Reggae Fest on Peaks Island Returns This Sunday

This Sunday, May 29, 2011 reggae fest will return to Jones Landing on Peaks Island. Every Sunday from now until the end of August, ferry & water taxi loads of locals will all pile onto Peaks Island for an afternoon of beer buckets, reggae music & sunshine! The doors open at 10AM, which may sound waaaaaay too early for some of you on a Sunday, & the music begins at 1PM! The seating is limited and fills up extremely fast [especially the spots in the sun]!  The breakfast pizza & beer bucket specials are always very popular & the drink specials rotate weekly.

Local reggae bands alternate weekly; this Sunday, Stream Reggae & Royal Hammer will be there to kick off the season!
