"ARGO" (2012) Review

Ben Affleck must be at a lucky point in his career. After his third directorial effort was released in theaters, it not only became a commercial and critical hit . . . like his two previous films, it also became a Best Picture Oscar winner. And he never struck me as the type who would direct and star in a film about the CIA rescuing American diplomats from the Middle East, let alone co-produce it. But he did and the result is the movie, "ARGO". Read more... )

"The Robot Restaurant" in Tokyo is probably the craziest restaurant in the entire world

Warning: the restaurant's own website could send you into epileptic convulsions. Even so, now I want to find the most staid, conservative, hidebound cookie-cutter suburb in southern California, buy a lot there . . . and build this on it.
