Director gives ‘Midway’ almost flippant treatment

Director gives ‘Midway’ almost flippant treatment

By Chic DiCiccio There’s really only one word to describe the first 30 minutes of “Midway,” and that word is tacky. The 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor is shown as if it’s a video game, complete with a ridiculous rope climb between burning naval ships. It’s silly to expect anything less from director Roland […]

Hungry Belly? New Korean favorite has amazing choices

Hungry Belly? New Korean favorite has amazing choices

By R. H. Lannen Even after many visits to Hungry Belly, I still have yet to scratch the surface of the menu. Four pages long and containing more than 100 different things to order, the list can seem a little daunting to wade through. The restaurant has selections from ramen to burgers and everything in […]

Season ends with Washington whirlwind

By David Mullen An odd 2019 baseball season is now in the books. The National League Wild Card champion Washington Nationals shocked baseball by winning the World Series against the heavily favored Houston Astros, which won a season’s best 107 games. The Nationals, 19-31 on May 23, finished the season with a 74-38 run including […]

Rock music transforms Bath House for ‘Lizzie’

Rock music transforms Bath House for ‘Lizzie’

By Shari Goldstein Stern It may be 1892 in Fall River, Mass., but some heads in Dallas, Texas are still banging in 21st-century rock from last weekend’s deliciously creepy opening of “Lizzie” by Imprint Theatreworks. But don’t take that wrong. It’s so much more than a rock musical. Bets are on that this will receive […]

‘Terminator’s’ soul lies in Linda Hamilton’s hands

‘Terminator’s’ soul lies in Linda Hamilton’s hands

By Chic DiCiccio There have been a lot of “Terminator” movies since 1991. There was one with Emilia Clarke, another with Claire Danes, and the most notorious one featured behind the scenes footage of Christian Bale verbally pummeling a grip. That must be the affect that starring in a subpar, poorly conceived action movie has […]

Aaron Paul drives overall success of ‘El Camino’

Aaron Paul drives overall success of ‘El Camino’

By Chic DiCiccio It took 62 episodes of “Breaking Bad” to watch Walter White (Brian Cranston) go from a timid, beaten high school teacher to an organized crime/drug kingpin. There’s an entire television series (“Better Call Saul,” which you most definitely should be watching) dedicated to explaining how the flawed, yet sweet Jimmy McGill (Bob […]

Casa Linda Salvadorian an adventure worth looking for

Casa Linda Salvadorian an adventure worth looking for

By R. H. Lannen Almost a hidden gem, tracking down Casa Linda Salvadoran can be a challenge. Located in the Lochwood neighborhood, the restaurant is found tucked in a small space in what is called the Whiterock Marketplace. Once you do find it, however, you are in for an authentic and delicious dining experience.  Family […]
