I've been to the last 2 NC ComiCons in Durham. It's a great event, but the panels are kind of a weak spot for me. I would have considered checking out NC ComiCon Oak City but it's the same weekend as the Anime Magic film festival at the Carolina Theater in Durham. Maybe next year.
Also, don't miss Illogicon this weekend http://illogicon.org/ - it's another great fan event!
I'm excited for http://raleighsupercon.com, but i mean I'm always excited for NC Comicon too lol! no reason to pick one, go to them all =D!
I dont know what why all the complaints about the ending. Its not horrible and its the most obvious ending - but it would have been much better and more interesting if Sean's suggestions were followed about their children and screen shots from their life.
Great post,thanks for sharing this.
hardly a disaster, don't be over critical. It is a great movie but I agree that the ending was disappointing. But it certainly didn't ruin the whole movie for me. I imagined their children being there to greet the passengers when they awoke with perhaps some screen shots from their life for the past 88 years on the ship.
You stopped the arts coverage to cover the election..... You were probably better off just covering the arts, rather than the elections. Your readership would have went up.
Thanks for being there. You will be missed.
Dude you got me the interest to read more, thanks to your content. Great thanks for that. There are some pretty good superman t shirt collection available at amazon
We didn't receive the photo credit with the picture, but I'm happy to add it now.
Thank you so much for this amazing review and I would like to say thanks to Chris Walt Photography for providing the photos.
I think that this sequel is a good movie to watch. It is frightening and has a lot of scenes that make you jump. I haven't seen the first one but after watching this, I think I should have watched it and it will be as good as this one.
such low key, warm, psychedelic cinematography (and Naomi Watts). beautiful film.
The opportunity to work with this event, as a volunteer behind the scenes and as a newly minted 69 year-old actress, has led to a passion in me for the stage. I have been cast as Abby Brewster in Arsenic and Old Lace. We open on Friday in Wake Forest-- thank you to Ashley Popio for lighting the fire in my heart to take on such a demanding, and delightful, role!
How lucky we are to have so much talent and such wonderful performances in Durham; keep it up gang - it just gets better and better!!
I appreciate this honest and realistic assessment of WTF 2016, and I applaud the bravery and audacity of Ashley Popio and all of the WTF collaborators for putting on the festival knowing that it was never going to be perfect. I am so glad we did not wait. I am so glad we did not try to find the right time. I am so glad we went for it.
Succeed or fail, Popio and all the women and allies who made WTF happen deserve major kudos. This has been long overdue and sorely needed in our theatrical community -- and beyond. Looking forward to seeing its continued growth and strength.
I loved this performance. It was dark, very funny and incredibly entertaining.
Well written and I am sure she is smiling down on all of you at PRC. I know you all will miss her always.
I'm reading this again after seeing it almost 5 months ago. Our new Quail Ridge Books is open at North Hills. It is large, eclectic, and colorful. The children's section is magical and there is an upstairs that includes books, magazines, a reading nook, and a great view of the first floor. I never would have imagined 5 years ago that I would own a bookshop, especially one that was opened and lovingly kept by a rockstar like Nancy. Now I have put my stamp on it, under hers.
There are nuances of the former store there: the fireplace and comfy chairs, book club meetings, the "paperback boat," special sections that include Southern writers and NC writers, and the framed author photos in the bathrooms. Of course we have a beautiful picture of Nancy prominently placed, as she should be.
It's a different store with a different vibe. But the booksellers are the same genuinely kind people you always knew. The same great literature is shelved. We continue to present wonderful authors, poets, and town hall guests.
If you haven't already, I hope you will come in to see us. Bring your coffee in and have a seat, for as long as you like.
