The acclaimed United States Army Field Band of Washington, D.C., will present a free public performance at Statesboro High on Friday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. The concert is sponsored by the Statesboro Herald.



The internationally acclaimed United States Army Field Band of Washington, D.C., will continue its long tradition of presenting free public performances when it appears at Statesboro High on Friday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. The Army Field Band’s concert is sponsored by the Statesboro Herald. The Concert Band & Soldiers’ Chorus are the oldest and largest of The U.S. Army Field Band’s performing components. The two ensembles combine to present joint concerts and they have performed in all 50 states and 30 foreign countries for audiences totaling hundreds of millions. “We are very excited to help bring the Field Band and Chorus to Statesboro on this tour,” said Jim Healy, operations manager for the Statesboro Herald. “The ensemble has performed in Statesboro previously and for those of you that attended that concert, you know what a remarkable evening of music you enjoyed. For those who have not seen the band in concert, you will be impressed by the incredible musicians and voices of the band and chorus. And it’s free.” A limit of four free tickets per request are available for pick up in the Statesboro Herald office in downtown Statesboro. Four tickets also can be mailed to you, if you send a selfaddressed, stamped envelope to: Free Statesboro Herald Concert P.O. Box 888 Statesboro, GA 30459

Also, a limited number of ticket are available for order online. Go to statesboro/. Again, there is a limit of four tickets. The 65-member Concert Band and 29-member Soldiers’ Chorus perform regularly in some of the most famous concert halls in the world, and just as often in the humblest auditoriums in the smallest of communities. The joining of these two ensembles allows them to showcase orchestral masterworks and operatic arias to Sousa marches, jazz classics and Broadway musicals. The band and chorus also perform independently, and have recently shared the stage with such ensembles as the Boston Pops, the Cincinnati Pops, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and the National Symphony Orchestra. “I'm very pleased that the U.S. Army's "Musical Ambassadors" — the Field Band and Chorus — are presenting this free concert in Statesboro,” said Dr. Michael Braz, retired GSU music professor and founder of the Statesboro Youth Chorale. “Their visit allows our community an unusual opportunity to experience a fine combined concert of instrumental and choral music in the comfortable setting of Statesboro High's auditorium. Since they perform such a wide variety of musical styles, there should be something of interest for virtually everyone.”w

3) Hootie's Corn Maze


A-MAZE-ING fall tradition

Too corny? You don't even know the half of it Before pumpkin spice madness, there was another beloved fall tradition: the corn maze. Imagine yourself and a few of your closest friends banding together and venturing into a dark cornfield at night. It’s a little scary, a little strange and a lot of fun. During the day, these magnificent labyrinths are a family friendly day-out that is total lighthearted fun. By night, however, the fields become dark — and though they aren’t haunted houses, being alone in a corn field in the dark is a pretty nervewracking experience perfect for college students (or any sane human being). Luckily, Statesboro is close to quite a few. Here’s a guide to the mazes closest to us:

1) Old Freeman Family Farm Where: 644 Scarboro Highway, Sylvania Driving distance: 15 minutes Size: It seems small — but then, so did the field in Children of the Corn, so … Cost: $12.00 Hours: 10 a.m.–8 p.m. on Saturdays 1–6 p.m. on Sundays Only open on weekends

2) Ottawa Farms Where: 702 Bloomingdale Road, Bloomingdale Driving distance: 45 minutes Size: Not listed, but big enough to get super lost (trust me). Cost: $10 Hours: 8:30–6 p.m. weekdays and Saturdays 1–6 p.m. on Sundays


Where: 1265 Old Louisville Road, Millen Driving distance: 45 minutes Size: Big enough for you to go missing and for no one to question it. Cost: $10 Hours: 10 a.m.–10 p.m. on Saturdays 1–6 p.m. on Sundays.

4) Poppell Farms Where: 1765 Hyma Poppell Loop, Odum Driving distance: 1 hour 20 minutes Size: Literally a giant picture of Cole Swindell. Guys, we are not even kidding. You can walk through his eyebrows and everything. Cost: $8 Hours: 8 a.m.–3 p.m. on weekdays 10 a.m.–5 p.m. on Saturdays Noon–5 p.m. on Sundays.

5) TroupCorn Maze Adventure Where: 105 Marie Church Road, Dublin Driving distance: 1 hour 20 minutes Size: Big enough to actually just be a crop circle that accidently got labeled as a corn maze. (On a side note: If you go missing in here, it was probably aliens.) Cost: $12 Hours: 10 a.m.–8 p.m. on Saturdays only.

Pro tips for corn maze survival • Bring a flashlight. • Don’t wear flip-flops, because snakes. • Wear jeans — again, because snakes. • Don’t drink beforehand. Seriously. It seems like a good idea, but it’s not. • Psych yourself up by watching the family-friendly blockbuster “Jeepers Creepers” before going. • Take a buddy. Don’t go in alone. • If you get attacked by a scarecrow, don’t use the F-word. Seriously, there are kids around. • If there is a corn cannon or pumpkin bowling, do the thing. • Take your significant other, because this is a great date.w

Q: Do you focus on Endodontics? A: I do perform endodontics (root canals) regularly,

but I do not focus on endodontics exclusively. I am a General Dentist and treat a wide variety of dental problems. In Statesboro, there are two root canal specialists (Endodontists) which come up from Savannah on a rotating daily basis. They restrict their practice to endodontic treatments only. I perform many root canals in my office but do refer out the more complex cases, as most General Dentists do.

PROPOSAL, from page 4

and moved to the Bulloch area to open up a resort for LGBTQ people. Their resort, Roy’s Hideaway, will be celebrating its eighth year of business soon. By the night I saw them at Starbucks, they were already on their way to getting married. Actually, this was the second time Roy had proposed and Eduardo had accepted. Roy said that the first proposal was very low-key: He just popped the question one night at home. “And he said, ‘Well, you can be a little bit more romantic than that,’” Roy told me, chuckling. “So I said, ‘I’m going to get him!’ ” He added that there was another reason: The first proposal had taken place before the Supreme Court’s landmark June 26 ruling made same-sex marriage legal nationwide. Roy said he wanted to propose one more time, in the presence of friends, now that their union was legal in Georgia. So Roy got on Facebook and tracked down a musical group for hire through Georgia Southern’s music department. He connected with Seth Stemple, a voice student and graduate assistant at GSU,

who in turn connected Roy with the Silhouettes, an a capella chorus group of Georgia Southern students. He gave them free reign to pick the song for the proposal. Eduardo has a slight Starbucks obsession, so Roy thought it would be a great place for their special moment. He arranged for several friends to arrive beforehand. He told Eduardo they were going out for a dinner date, but that they were going to take a quick stop at Starbucks, where they “ran into” the friends who had come to support them, and everyone played dumb until the music struck up. And Eduardo, of course, accepted. He and Roy married Sept. 22 — just a few days after the Starbucks surprise — in Alamo, Georgia. I’ve had these lovebirds on the brain ever since. I’m in that stretch of one’s twenties when it seems like a new engagement announcement from my peers pops up in my Facebook feed every three days, but I was delighted to see that one of them was from a good college friend. He had moved out to San Francisco to be with his longtime boyfriend, and he proposed on the beach in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. I love this friend very deeply, in part

because he has done so much to teach me and help me grow into kinder human being. We had several thoughtful, boundary-pushing conversations during our early undergraduate careers as we procrastinated during essay-writing all-nighters. He knew I came from a conservative Christian background, and we would talk about this sometimes in an intellectual, bantering way. He never attacked and he never criticized, but he was also not content with rote or conventional answers. One stressful night, laptops and books spread haphazardly around us, he laid his head on my shoulder and asked me, “Brittani, why don’t you think I should be able to get married?” I think I answered something along the lines of how I didn’t think government should really have any say in who could get married, but I knew the question had a deeper implication, and it bothered me for a long time. It bothered me until years later, when I realized that I didn’t actually have a problem with it at all. I had looked at moral, religious and political arguments against samesex marriage and was, for my own part, unable to find them compelling enough to continue believing — particularly

when they helped deny rights to my fellow citizens, not to mention people I personally cared about. And I’m very grateful for the friend who was patient and loving with me, even before I came to that conclusion. The Supreme Court decision was a big step toward recognizing LGBTQ people as full citizens with full rights, but the on-the-ground battle is still being waged. Kim Davis is still popping up in the headlines, and the Associated Press recently reported that Alabama courts are resorting to Segregation-era tactics to deny same-sex marriage licenses to couples. It’s still incredibly important for the LGBTQ community to have vocal and political support from their friends, loved ones and other allies, inside and outside of that community. So congratulations, Roy and Eduardo, and congratulations, Noah and Kayden! May your lives together be joyful and blessed, and may you enjoy the fruits you have fought for during the many, many years to come. Brittani Howell is the editor of Connect Statesboro.

Bye-bye, bye week Looking forward to Southern's showdown against old rival Appalachian State As a fan, I’ve always hated bye weeks. It’s never as much fun when almost everyone else in the country is playing while your own team is off. However, bye weeks are usually a much-needed break for the players, coaches and Alex staff to rest, recharge and get healthy. Plus, it gives us fans a

chance to travel, do some work around the house, or just sit back and watch other games. This bye week will also give us a chance to catch our breath after the first five games of the season and take a look around at Brown the rest of the Sun Belt. Georgia Southern currently sits

all alone atop the conference standings with a 2-0 record in conference play after wins at Idaho and Louisiana Monroe. Four teams (Appalachian State, South Alabama, Arkansas State and Louisiana Lafayette) are all off to 1-0 starts. Georgia State is 1-1, while five teams (UL Monroe, Texas State, Troy, New Mexico State and Idaho) are winless in conference play. Georgia Southern (4-1), Appalachian State (4-1) and South Alabama (3-2) are the only teams in the Sun Belt with overall winning records. The Eagles and App State are the top two in both team scoring offense and scoring defense. Southern scores 37.2 points per game while App averages 35.2 points. The Mountaineers lead the conference by a mile in scoring defense by giving up just 11.4 points per game. The Eagles allow 25.0 points. Next best is Arkansas State at 32.2. Looks like next Thursday night in Boone could be a lot of fun. But Georgia Southern has a game to focus on this weekend first. On paper, the Eagles look like they should handle New Mexico State pretty easily. The Aggies are playing their third road game in as many weeks and are coming off a 52-3 beat-down at the hands of Ole Miss. And New Mexico State has lost 15 consecutive games dating back to last September. But it’s a conference game and you can’t take any of those too lightly. The Aggies have shown the ability to put up points. They scored 32 in a two-point loss to Georgia State, racked up 47 in an overtime loss to UTEP and managed 29 against rival New Mexico. So the Eagles defense can’t sleep on this offense. Of course, they haven’t shown any signs of stopping anyone as they have averaged allowing 47 points per game this season. Georgia Southern is coming off a bye week and it’s homecoming in Statesboro. The weather forecast looks picture perfect as of a week out and the Eagles haven’t played a home game in nearly a month. Many are calling for the 26-year-old attendance record of 25,725 at the 1989


GEORGIA SOUTHERN v. appalachian state GSU Homecoming Paulson Stadium @ 6 p.m. national championship game to fall this weekend. It certainly appears that conditions are favorable to make a run at it.

And unfortunately for them, it won’t happen this Saturday night in Statesboro.

Georgia Southern student Joseph Randall, 20, of Kennesaw expresses his opinion of Appalachian State during last year's game against one of Southern's bitterest rivals. We know it's kind of an old picture, but let's face it, you can't get much better at throwing shade than this guy.

'Splatoon' wants to see your ink


Weapons are sold in sets and are purchased with money achieved by playing online matches in the lobby, starting at Level Four. The online matches are categorized as regular and ranked matches. The regular matches use the “Turf Wars” game type where players cover the map in as much ink as they can before the timer runs out. Ranked matches rotate between the following game modes: Splat Zones, Tower Control and Rainmaker. Splat Zones is a kingof-the-hill mode where a team tries to control a designated area by keeping it covered in their ink color. In Tower Control, a team must capture and escort a floating tower that is located in the center of the map towards a target at the opponents’ end of the map.

capture a totem and bring it back towards the opponents’ end of the map. Outside of the online mode, there is also a single-player campaign mode. Players must rescue The Great Zapfish, which serve as Inkopolis’s source of power. Players have to use a default weapon in this mode as they navigate through platforms, obstacles and enemies. After clearing the areas, players will encounter a main boss before proceeding to the next area. Defeating a boss will unlock blueprints that can be used to upgrade and enhance the player's weapon. There wasn’t much that Nintendo did wrong with this shooter; however, there are a few issues that should be addressed if possible. Once a player chooses a load-out before the match, they are stuck with that weapon and cannot change until the next match. Also, the cut scenes from the Squid Sisters are annoying, as players have to read through the cut scenes that have no skip option. I also found it disheartening that Nintendo did not include a co-op option for online play. The only way to play with a friend locally is via a 1-versus-1 competitive mode. There is also no voice chat, so players cannot coordinate attacks and strategy. Although there are a few negatives, the positives vastly outweigh them. Splatoon is a fresh and welcomed take on the shooter genre. Although it looks simple and childish, the game will challenge players and includes moments where skill and competitive play shine through. The network holds up very well and lag never really showing up at all, while the leveling and customization keeps the replay value high. I hope Nintendo continues to improve upon the game, as I’ve already spent many hours splatting inklings across the globe.w

The Zero Gravity spins at high speed during last year's Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair. This year, the fair will be held at the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fairground from Oct. 19–24.

It's Statesboro's favorite time of the year Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair is back for another year Holli Deal Saxon It’s time for the Tilt-A-Whirl, Roundup, Gravitron and other wildly exciting rides. It’s time for cotton candy and funnel cakes, huge stuffed animals and games of chance. It’s time for the annual Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair. For one week each fall, Statesboro welcomes the regional carnival that celebrates Bulloch County’s rich agricultural history while at the same time bringing excitement, entertainment and more fun to the Boro. The week starts off with a bang as a parade, starting at 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 19, rambles through downtown

Statesboro. Floats, bands, beauty queens, local dignitaries and youth groups join classic cars, antique tractors and other entries as they meander through crowds lining the streets. The fairgrounds, located on Fair Road (Hwy. 67 about a mile or so past Veteran’s Memorial Parkway) open at 6 p.m. Monday. The fair represents seven surrounding counties and centers around agricultural events like livestock judging events, and competitions for the best of local crops, canned goods and crafts — but like all fairs, it includes an exciting midway for those craving excitement and looking to test their luck.

Amusements of America has partnered with the Statesboro Kiwanis Club for over 20 years, bringing a large assortment of thrill rides, games of chance, fun houses and vendors. According to Robbie Vivona, whose family owns Amusements of America, one new ride this year is “The Experience,” which has three arms with cars at the ends. The arms and cars spin in different directions, ensuring a fun but frightening ride. The carnival workers also have food booths with unique “fair foods” such as fried Oreos, Italian sausages and pizza slices. That’s not all the food offered, however. You won’t go hungry. There is a food court in the Heritage Village section of the fairgrounds where local churches, businesses and clubs serve up fresh

funnel cakes, candy apples, turkey legs, hamburgers and hot dogs, fries, fresh pork skins, baked goods, and even home-style dishes such as chicken and rice and chili. The Kiwanis Pancake House is famous for its pancakes and sausage, and the adjacent Barbecue Hut — with this year's sauce provided by Swainsboro vendor Jim's Meat Sauce — sends out tantalizing scents that come from freshly smoked barbecue. (Just bear in mind that it's generally unadvisable to hit the food booths before getting on the rides. Just a friendly reminder.) The Heritage Village area is also where you’ll find an assortment of entertainment and exhibits, an old country store, blacksmith shop, old farm house, barnyard and more.

Renaissance man MK Asante to speak at GSU him a renaissance man of today. That award-winning book is now being developed into a film. His work is making him quite popular in the media circuit. Essence Magazine once mentioned him as "the voice of a new generation." He's been interviewed and covered by dozens of media outlets and was even selected by MSNBC as one of the "100 History Makers in the Making". He has been hailed by the late poet Maya Angelou. His work has taken him to over 40 countries. MK Asante doesn't really consider himself a rapper alone. He uses whatever medium helps him get his message out. That message mainly deals with the impact of hip-hop on communities and people, but it surpasses music; he also shares in his book the impact of mental health on families and brings the issue up as something urban families have a hard time discussing. His own mother has dealt with depression for most of her life.


Rapper, author, filmmaker and professor MK Asante will appear at Georgia Southern University Oct. 14 and 15 to speak and sign copies of his memoir, "BUCK." Asante will now be bringing his message to Georgia Southern University as a part of the College and Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. On Wednesday, Oct. 14, from 5–6:30 pm in the Henderson Library room 1300, Asante will host a book-signing and reception. On the following day in the

History and hip-hop in 'Hamilton' musical The New York Times once called Alexander Hamilton "the most important founding father who never became president," in reference to the mystery of why Hamilton has seldom come under historians' microscopes. But a new Broadway musical, Hamilton, puts his life and contributions to the birth of a nation front and center to the beat of rap and hip-hop. A recent New York Times review of the show not only said the show lived up to its sizable hype since leaping

from off-Broadway last winter, but that theater lovers also should "mortgage their houses and lease their children to acquire tickets." But as NPR reported, the show offers audiences even more than a look into a fascinating founding father's life. In addition to being reared in the Caribbean and later orphaned, Hamilton died in a duel in 1800 and was known as a lothario.

Beneath the history, pageantry and music, the show also shines a light on Hamilton as the man who built America's economy not from economic concepts, but from understanding economic hardship. "In the show, Hamilton sings about

the hardships faced by Washington's forces at Valley Forge," NPR reported, adding that the woes at Valley Forge were worsened when soldiers couldn't buy supplies with worthless British currency. "After the revolution, Hamilton arranged for the federal government to pay the debts that the individual colonies had run up. It helped forge the strong centralized government we have today."w

Rappers are constantly recording and writing new music for an industry that is constantly changing. They have to continue to record and perform to stay relevant. MK Asante is a rapper in the same way your favorite rapper is, but he takes his musical influences even further than music. Today, MK Asante is a rapper, visual artist, author, filmmaker and professor who travels the world with intentions of influencing and changing minds. His memoir BUCK tells the story of his upbringing from Africa to Philadelphia, and the lessons learned along his path to being a productive adult. He spent a lot of time in and out of trouble at a young age. By 17, he had been literally kicked out of every school he attended until he found a way to express himself more powerfully than his rebellious acts could achieve — writing. After he picked up a pen, he found a way to get the rebel inside out. From there, MK Asante developed his other talents, and many are calling

You never forget your first time ... "Statesboro Herald" editor recalls early days of "Rocky Horror Picture Show" in New York City In the fall of 1977, I was a freshman at New York University, living in the Weinstein Center for Student Living, a few blocks east of Greenwich Village. Heady times for an 18-year-old from Miami, though I had lived in New York City until I was 13. I made a couple of good friends in my first month at NYU and we enjoyed the benefits of the city and the nearby haunts. We sat right next to the stage of a Graham Parker concert at the Bottom Line, a legendary music club; saw the Dead Boys at CBGB’s, a legendary punk rock club; and visited Times Square more often than we should have. On a Saturday night in November 1977, we heard the cast of “Saturday Night Live” would come to this bar after their show called One Fifth

right down from our dorm. We hung around outside and, sure enough, at about 2 a.m. two limos pulled up and out poured John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray in a haze of smoke. They invited us in, but the management wouldn’t let us. That would have been a night to remember. As I said, heady times. And yes, I did go to class. Most of the time. Anyway, we had heard about this thing called the “Rocky Horror Picture Show.” We had seen some folks from our dorm dressed in fishnet stockings, bras and black wigs — and those were the men — and go to midnight showings of Rocky Horror. While we had no plans to dress up, it certainly looked like a fun thing to go see. So, on an October Friday night, we had few beers, some shots of whiskey — 18 was the legal drinking age way back then — and

This year's cast of the Rocky Horror Picture Show is ready to make you laugh, make you cry (probably from laughing too hard) and catapult you out of your comfort zone. headed out to the Waverly Theater, in the heart of Greenwich Village. (The Waverly Theater, by the way, was where the interactive, midnight showings of Rocky Horror began and has since spread in the past nearly 40 years across the US and even into foreign countries.) We trekked through Washington Square Park and tapped the statue of Italian patriot Giuseppe Garibaldi for luck, a ritual of ours, and got to the theater about 15 minutes before show time. It was packed, and there were just a few of us there who were not in some sort of costume depicting a character from the movie, including a lot of women and men in full bridal outfits. We had a little more to drink before the show started, so my memories of the exact details of what went on in the theater are a little fuzzy. But I do remember all of us having a great time as people pulled out water pistols during the rain scene, rice covered us during the wedding scene and people talked back to the characters on screen the whole movie.

Challenging changes The autumn blues happen for a variety of reasons, including the stress of a new school year, worries about the coming winter and general resistance to change, Coomes said. "Fall is a time when people start getting busier," she said. "They're not meeting up with friends as often, and the loneliness starts to build up." These emotional shifts heighten the distress some people experience as a result of environmental changes, like decreased access to sunlight and new allergens in the air, said Dr. Steve Schlozman, the associate director of The Clay Center for Young Healthy Minds at Massachusetts General Hospital.

In its most serious form, this distress is referred to as seasonal affective disorder, which is a variety of depression. Around half a million Americans suffer from SAD, and an additional 10 to 20 percent of the population may face "a more mild form of winter blues," the Cleveland Clinic reports. Seasonal depression is caused, at least in part, by disrupted brain patterns, a situation that results from decreased sunlight, Schlozman noted. Some people's brains respond in negative ways to changes in ambient light, leading them to experience fatigue and sadness, among other emotional issues. Although SAD is associated with winter, the symptoms often begin in fall, as days gradually shorten in the lead-up to the winter solstice Dec. 22, Coomes said, noting that anybody who worries about their emotional health in fall and winter should be proactive about identifying coping mechanisms that will work for them. "If people can recognize their mood changes earlier, they will be easier to manage throughout," she said. Embracing autumn Struggling with autumn anxiety since childhood, Borchard has learned to enter the season with a game plan. She makes a point to schedule trips with her two children to apple orchards and fall festivals, as well as to fill her pantry with seasonal treats like stews and caramel apples. In this way, Borchard shifts her focus from dreading winter to anticipating the aspects of autumn she looks forward to all year long. "If you can appreciate the good parts of fall, you'll have some fun with it," she said. Food blogger Darya Rose echoed Borchard, noting people should try to think of changing weather as an opportunity to mix-up their wellness routine. As a result of shorter days and dropping temperatures, "it's easy to get discouraged" about going for a run or even walking your dog, she said. "(But) I

use fall weather as an excuse to workout inside while watching my favorite TV show. It almost feels like my workout has become a guilty pleasure." Rose also enjoys finding ways to include the season's produce in her daily meals, and delicata squash has become one of her favorite foods. The goal of embracing fall in these ways is to supplement the many anxiety-inducing parts of the season with exciting things, Schlozman said, noting that people should get their whole family in on the act because seasonal mood swings can affect children, too. "Kids who are doing well socially (in

the summer) but then stop hanging out with their friends because life gets busy ‌ have a hard time," he said. Schlozman suggested parents make a point to give their kids "unstructured free time," in the fall, meaning time in which young people can do whatever their heart calls them to do, including taking a walk, reading for fun or hanging out with friends. Not every family member will appreciate a trip to a pumpkin patch, but everyone will benefit from welcoming the fall and winter months with the intention to find bright spots in a challenging season of change, he said.w

Therese Borchard welcomes autumn with a sense of dread. "I think it's partly the changing of the seasons, but fall is also filled with so much scheduling and newness," said Borchard, founder of Project Beyond Blue, an online community for people affected by anxiety and depression. Borchard is not the only American stressed out by this season. While some people welcome pumpkin spice lattes, football games and changing leaves with open arms, others dread the annual anxiety-level increase that comes with busier schedules and shorter days. "Keeping up with everything gives me a lot of anxiety," she said, listing obligations like parent-teacher conferences and needing to adjust to earlier sunsets. However, people who feel their moods drop along with temperatures don't have to settle for unhappy hibernation, mental health experts said. Strategies like trying fall-themed recipes, taking a family trip to an apple orchard or scheduling a warm weekend getaway can help everyone anticipate and enjoy changing seasons. "There's a lot to be said for preparing yourself," said Michelle Coomes, a family therapist in Davidson, North Carolina. "Don't let (seasonal depression) sneak up on you."

Is 'Pan' the prequel you've been waiting for? Spoiler alert: Probably not I hope you’ll forgive an opening Pan spoiler, but I promise this one detail in no way affects the outcome of the story, it happens in the opening sequences and overall, sums up what it’s like to experience director Joe Wright’s take on the J.M. Barrie classic

character Peter Pan. Towards the beginning of the film, Peter (Levi Miller) is kidnapped by pirates in a bungee-flinging action scene that ends with Peter flying off to Neverland while Peter’s dearest friend watches helplessly from an orphanage rooftop.

Well, at least "Pan" has some really pretty animation. ...Well, sometimes. The scene is obviously important, which will leave audiences wondering who the rooftop-marooned boy is meant to be. Maybe the exchange is a perfect setup for the character to return as a villain in a later adventure, or maybe he grows up to be Wendy’s father, which would explain the future Mr. Darling’s attitude towards his daughter’s bedtime stories. The potential is fun to consider, and also paves the way for what could be an elaborate and visually beautiful game of connect the dots. The eventual reveal however is wildly lackluster, offering no reason for the attention and no worthwhile nod to the original material. That promise without delivery isn’t just an opening flub, but instead the beat to which Wright constructs his entire Pan adventure. This is not to say Pan is a insatiable charm vacuum, or that there isn’t an audience perfect for the material; it’s simply noting the story doesn’t earn its ticket to Neverland. The scenery As far as visual effects go, there are moments in Pan that are simply beautiful. When it comes to flying pirate ships, Pan easily earns its place as the definitive benchmark for all airshiprelated cinema. But for every flying pirate ship there is a completely computer generated Peter; and we’re not just talking occasional wide shots of a less-than-realistic flying boy, but super creepy closeups of poorly animated facial expressions. The performances It’s obvious during the first quiet conversation between Peter and his tyrannical captor, Blackbeard, that Hugh Jackman believed Pan could be something special. While the outcome of that scene makes no sense, Jackman’s sincerity buys the story


some needed credibility. When Jackman is not on screen, however, Miller abandons any of the fire or spirit you’d expect from the heroic Peter Pan, and Garrett Hedlund comes across more as a Captain Hook impersonator than any believable incarnation of the infamous villain. The story Long before Peter finds his way to Neverland, you’ll notice something missing from your movie experience. The obvious punchlines won’t make you smile, and the witty one-liners or mischievous antics that would usually cause you to fall in love with a character don’t seem to be working for Team Peter. And right about when Peter meets Hook for the first time in the heart of a hopeless mining camp, you’ll suddenly realize that Peter and Wendy doesn’t actually need a prequel! Then you’ll realize you have no idea what the central conflict of this unnecessary prequel is, which will then make you realize you have no idea how this whole story is supposed to wrap up, which will then makes 111 minutes feel like 1,111 minutes, which is a long time to sit through a movie you haven’t been interested in since Peter met Hook way back at the mining camp. Conclusion If you forget Pan is supposed to be another chapter of the beloved children’s classic, then you might be fine taking in the visual feast parading around Neverland. It’s not life changing, but it’s passable for a Saturday matinee with a few of your favorite young people. In the end, if your kids are dying to see Pan this weekend, there are definitely worse fates you could endure. Just remember the lower you set your expectations, the more likely you are to have a good time.w
