Re: “NC Comicon and Oak City Comicon Consolidate Brands as New Competition From Florida Looms

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.

Re: “Movie Review: Passengers Proves a Bad Ending Can Ruin an Otherwise Good Movie

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.

Re: “Movie Review: Passengers Proves a Bad Ending Can Ruin an Otherwise Good Movie

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.

Re: “Will to Live Cautiously Returning? Here's a Few Things to Do This Week.

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.

Re: “Movie Review: Blair Witch Takes Us Back to Ground Zero of the Found-Footage Horror Explosion

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.

Re: “Assessing the First Outing—and the Future—of the Women's Theatre Festival

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!

Re: “Assessing the First Outing—and the Future—of the Women's Theatre Festival

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.

Re: “Assessing the First Outing—and the Future—of the Women's Theatre Festival

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.

Re: “Remembering Quail Ridge Books Founder Nancy Olson, a Reader's Best Friend

Hi Zack,

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.

Sincerely,

Lisa Poole
