What would happen if you combined E.T. with Cloverfield? Well, you’d get Super 8 which is directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg. While it wasn’t horrific, Super 8 certainly doesn’t live up to the hype and this is mainly due to the fact that the styles of Abrams and Spielberg just don’t mix well here.
Yet another burger restaurant opened up in Boca Raton a few months back, called Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries. I decided to check it out the other day, and I must say, it’s a pretty good place. If you’ve ever been to a Five Guys Burgers and Fries you’ll feel somewhat familiar at Boardwalk, as they are remotely similar. While Five Guys is rather bare bones on the inside, Boardwalk is a bright and colorful place with a nice atmosphere.
By now, you’ve probably heard about Words with Friends. Launched in July 2009, this word-based game is almost identical to Scrabble in the way it is played. The only difference is that instead of huddling around a board game on a table, we are able to challenge friends, family, co-workers and random opponents through a device running either iOS (iPhone and iPad) or Android. This allows for the games to be played at your own pace, and you can compete simultaneously with up to 20 different people!
There are many films about drugs and drug effects, but none quite like Limitless. When unknown writer Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) discovers a pill that allows him to access the full potential of his mind, he does some pretty incredible things.
In her book titled The Truth About the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What to Do About It, Marcia Angell takes us inside the prescription drug industry in a way that forces us to reexamine the claims of drug companies such as Pfizer, Merck, Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline and others.
Happy 2011 everyone! I guess now would be a good time to do a quick recap of what I consider to be the best films released in 2010. Keep in mind, I’m not a film critic, just someone who likes good films. Also, since I haven’t even come close to watching all the films released in the previous year, consider this list restricted to those I did see (obviously). I’m sure there are a few goodies I’m leaving out, but that’s not what this is about. It’s just my humble opinion on what was the best of the best of 2010. So, let’s begin.
If you’ve never been to the Golden Corral, you’re missing out on a true symbol of American hospitality. Where else can you find row upon row of hot, steamy, fried, greasy, starchy comfort foods all waiting to be devoured in limitless quantities?
Vividly portraying the early days of Facebook and its anti-social founder Mark Zuckerberg, The Social Network goes behind the scenes of the social networking site we’ve all come to either love or loath. Just as there are very few “middle-ground” Facebook users (you either like the site or hate the site), I have a feeling this movie will garner a similar array of reviews at both extreme ends of the spectrum.
Adapted from Chuck Hogan’s novel, Prince of Thieves, this film follows the exploits of four lifelong friends in crime as they make their way through a series of armed robberies and attempt to avoid the heat of law enforcement. While the plot behind this bank heist thriller may not be very original, the method in which it was filmed makes up for that.
