So here's the deal: I'm still a kid at heart. The rest of the University of Richmond student population could claim they wanted to grow up, be mature, yada-yada, and I would still say that I love cartoons, love these new CGI animated movies, and that I especially love "How to Train Your Dragon."
The guys who seem as if they've popped up in every Judd Apatow or similar comedy movie for the last five years have suddenly been cast in a movie about a hot tub time machine. In it, three broken, grown-up dudes and one nerdy teenager get transported back to the '80s by said time machine and have to change their crappy lives.
Bistro 27 is a contemporary European restaurant that offers good food in a forgettable atmosphere. Conveniently located for theatergoers, Bistro 27 is in downtown Richmond on the corner of Broad and Adams streets. But, if you venture
Jennifer Aniston: "Oh my God, can you believe, like, how intolerable he is?"
Life is meaningless. The world is a conglomerated mess where make-me-buy-what-I-don't-need-and-can't-afford advertising is inescapable - a doubly wrinkled brain that is too complex to be blissful - and people are basically bags of meat with sob stories. Oh, and metal parts are rent-to-buy, at the expense of your children's college funds. But, then again, everything's meaningless, right? That is, at least until you find out you're dying.
Ogden Marsh, Iowa, is a calm, idyllic farm town. The main street wanders off into the cornfields, barely reaching the quaint, burnable farmhouses that are too far away from each other to offer a sense of community in trying zombie times. In short, Ogden Marsh is two breaths from dropping dead and rising up again even before the zombies show up.
Balliceaux is a spunky gem of a restaurant, with a menu that offers new American cuisine. Located in Richmond's Fan district, the restaurant is a unique departure from many of Richmond's more traditional Southern or European restaurants.
Sanity is circular. At some point, even those deemed insane can start to sound normal again and normal people can start to sound mad. That's what "Shutter Island" is like, and it spins that sanity wheel over and over like a hamster stuck in a cage.
Mardi Gras may be over but the celebration of New Orleans is still alive on campus.
I want to state from the beginning that I am not a fan of Valentine's Day. Why should one day during the year symbolize your feelings for your significant other? That aside, when a friend of mine approached me in January about going to see New Found Glory, Saves The Day and Hellogoodbye at The National on Valentine's Day, I said yes, knowing that I would probably still be single at that point. While people saw their fair share of roses and chocolate on Sunday night, my visuals were filled with skinny jeans and lip rings. Such is the garb of the emo subculture.
Hollywood never shies away from rewriting a good idea, and who can blame it? The stories are already written, mostly, and the ones worth remaking are going to bring in enough cash to make the embarrassingly horrible ones worth it. Sometimes the gamble works -- as it did for Emma Thompson's "Sense and Sensibility" or the Batman movies featuring Christian Bale. But most of the time, remakes are so awkwardly bad that they are hilarious -- as is the case with "Spiderman 3" (you know it was terrible) or "Zathura," that movie about Jumanji in space.
The Princeton Review has included the University of Richmond on its list of the 50 best-value private colleges in the nation.
Let me begin this review by saying something about my restaurant reviewing and grading criteria. I try to review places that might be especially appealing for University of Richmond students. Dining off campus is particularly popular among Richmond students because we go to a small university with only a few on-campus dining options.
Yes, "Legion" is another one of those apocalyptic fear trains that Hollywood seems to be running these days, especially in preparation for 2012. God is coming and he's ticked.
As a self-proclaimed food enthusiast and someone who enjoys nearly every cuisine, I found deLux to be a good spot for contemporary American dining. Owned by the same people as The Hardshell and located in Richmond's historic fan district, deLux caters to a younger crowd than its brother restaurant in Shockoe Bottom. It's open from 11:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. on weekends, and has a menu that includes something for everyone.
I went to two Christian middle schools, and had to go to church every single Wednesday. My visits to church included two hours of singing and listening to sermons and studying the back of the head of the person in front of me. "The Book of Eli" was like a slow version of church,
The Mayans predicted you would read this article and then a giant sun fart would engulf the Earth, now aligned with all the other planets, causing massive earthquakes that rip California from the West Coast and tsunamis that flood North America and Asia. The Mayans also predicted one man would be the focus of the sun's wrath and wherever he went - be it Los Angeles, Wyoming or China - devastation would immediately follow.
I mentioned the "Saw" franchise during my last critique, and as fate - and Halloween - would have it, another "Saw" movie came out last week. I waited until Saturday to see it because, well, there wasn't anything else worth watching. You couldn't drag me to the Michael Jackson thing and I definitely wasn't watching "Astro Boy" or "Cirque du Freak: the Vampire's Assistant." So that left "Saw." "Saw" on Halloween? Well, I guess it worked.
Director Uli Edel's 2008 film "The Baader Meinhof Complex" recounts the exploits of some of the most notorious anti-reactionaries of the Red Army Faction -- the prominent West German terrorist organization. It is an unrelenting, if not chaotic, depiction of an anarchic Germany and, moreover, the state of the world, during one of the most precarious decades -- roughly 1967-1977.
