The story revolves around the coming of age of Inez, the border town, and how adult decisions affect children. That’s the simplified way to describe the book, as it’s hard to encapsulate all the intricacies that are involved in growing up bi-cultural and in Inez’s case, empathetic.

Sully – Film Review

By on Sep 10, 2016 in Arts & Culture, Features, Film

True heroes rarely want accolades and admiration, think police officers, fire fighters, doctors, etc., most of them are quick to say that they were simply doing their job. In Clint Eastwood’s new film, Sully, he depicts the pilot Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) as a stoic, no frills type of hero. This isn’t a film about a man wearing a cape saving the world, it’s about a man who saved dozens of lives or “souls” as he says, and lived to tell the story that would forever define his life.

Sausage Party – Film Review

By on Aug 12, 2016 in Arts & Culture, Features, Film

The animated feature Sausage Party takes just that idea and gives adults a cartoon film just for them. The movie is raunchy, hilarious and filled with every sexual innuendo (the sausages want to hook up with buns), stereotype (the Sauerkraut bottles are Nazis), and food related joke (the Horseradish jars literally turn into horses) in the book. A film of this magnitude and content could only be co-written of course by one of the few duo’s in Hollywood that could pull this off, Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg, the stoner minds behind Superbad and Pineapple Express.
