“The Brotherhood of the Wolf,” has something for almost everyone. Nearly every genre imaginable is crammed into this flick. It’s your typical martial arts, monster movie, murder mystery, period romance and political thriller.
The film’s identity crisis is not a bad sign however.
When a restaurant has been around for about as long as I have, it must have something special to offer. Such is the case for The Great Lost Bear on Forest Avenue. This festive eatery and pub has been in its Portland location since 1979, according to management, and business is still going strong.

Lobsang Samten’s sand painting is beautiful, but it is not for sale or permanent display. The sand mandala he is creating at the USM Art Gallery doesn’t even belong to him.
“It is like a cake for Mother Earth,” said the Tibetan artist. “The idea is that sand comes from Earth, so we give it back to the Earth.
Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day, and finding a place that satisfies you right to the core is hard to come by. I think I can finally say I’ve found just that place. DeVito’s Old Market Grill on Washington Avenue serves a breakfast much like one cooked in your own kitchen, and better.
“Black Hawk Down” is an exciting film with so much intense action that the audience may find it almost unbearable, not just because of the tension the film produces, but because it is a horrific true story. Based on the U.S. military excursion that went wrong in the city of Mogadishu, Somalia in 1993, which killed nearly 20 American soldiers and 1,000 Somalis, the film can be very disturbing due to its unrelenting desire to truthfully depict modern warfare.
USM Thursdays begin at Bleachers
By Scott Marcoux

A chance to socialize with other faculty and staff members, a good deal on chow, and the day’s sports highlights. Welcome to USM Thursdays at Bleachers.
Bleachers Sports Bar and Restaurant, almost a part of the Portland campus for years, now offers two-for-one appetizers for USM faculty and staff 5 to 7 p.
People whizzing down Forest Avenue may miss it, but Brea Lu Cafe does exist, and serves breakfast all day! The small brick building sits alone at 428 Forest with a banner running down its side that reads “BREAKFAST” in large red lettering. Inside the cafe are high tin ceilings and plenty of old varnished wood.
“A Beautiful Mind” is one of those “high quality films” that the studios hold until the end of the year for the purpose of gaining little gold men. Oscar is king in Hollywood this time of the year.
Some of these studio films are very good and deserve the praise they desperately seek, but others are usually jumbled messes that show evidence of too many fingerprints.
Brandon Turner had any easy time Tuesday finding practice space for himself and his double bass. He won’t be so lucky when classes resume this week.
Music majors like Turner are trying to cope with a shortage of practice space in Corthell Hall on the Gorham campus.
The Kennedy Center’s American College Theater Festival selected the USM Theatre Department’s production of “The Good Woman of Setzuan” as one of six finalists from New England, according to Arts Promotions Director Mary Snell.

One of Portland’s famous restaurant/breweries recently expanded to downtown Gorham. Sebago Brewing Company opened at its unique location on Nov. 21.
