People have been flocking to the shores of Port Orchard for over 30 years to take part in the event. Judges say they’re not just listening to […]

  • ‘Art of Racing in the Rain’ drives forward on dog story

    Enzo is a great name for a dog. And the Enzo in this movie is a golden retriever who lives up to that name. He’s a loyal, protective, and caring dog, with an inner monologue given voice by Kevin Costner.

    It may be Spider-Man’s biggest challenge. The web crawler has to kick start the next phase of Marvel’s cinematic universe following the earth-shattering, and world-saving events of the last two Avengers movies. With a snap of his fingers, Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) brought back the half of the universe lost to Thanos’ diabolical plan, but in doing so he sacrificed himself.
