Woodhouse Fish Company

Woodhouse Fish Company

Woodhouse Fish Company 1914 Fillmore St, SF, CA 94115 http://www.woodhousefish.com/ Think Maine. White walls and ship pictures. White wine. VERY friendly and helpful servers. Quite and quaint atmosphere. Woodhouse is a lovely looking place. The menu was – obviously – fish based for the most part. My wife got shrimp stuffed artichokes  and I got sole and both were friggin’ fabulous. I literally kept saying “man, this is really good” in between bites. When my wife could not … Read entire article »

Monk’s Kettle 3141 16th Street, SF, CA 94103 http://www.monkskettle.com/ Like beer? You’ll LOVE Monk’s Kettle. Weave your way through the folks playing music on the sidewalk and into Monk’s for an amazing, multi-page beer experience! I’m a Chimay ale guy and they didn’t let me down with the selection. Page after page of beer awaits you. You name it and they’ll have it or something like it. The service was fantastic. The server we had took time to … Read entire article »

FLCL

FLCL

FLCL Kazuya Tsurumaki http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0279077/ Japanese animation or “anime” (please don’t call it “Japanimation” – dear lord….) is hit or miss.  There are some fantastic sci-fi shows like GHOST IN THE SHELL, some great children’s fair like TOTORO and KIKI’S DELIVERY SERVICE, and some truly touching stories like GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES that will have your heartstrings tugged so hard it hurts. FLCL or Fooly Cooly is just a crazy science fiction romp that will have you wondering what … Read entire article »

UP!

UP!

UP! (2009)  Pete Docter and Bob Peterson (co-director) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1049413/ Man, I really liked this film. Am I just getting older? I was almost weeping at parts of it! It was fantastic to see less emphasis on the “WOW! 3D factor” and more on story and character development. The film did look really nice, but there was less flash and more substance. The actors voicing the characters did a wonderful job and filled the virtual actors with life. … Read entire article »

Turn Left, Turn Right

Turn Left, Turn Right

Turn Left, Turn Right (2003)  Johnnie To and Ka-Fai Wai http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0367174/ In short, this film will give you insulin shock with how sweet it is. It’s a romantic comedy in the classic Asian tradition. Two people are meant for each other and – time and time again – miss each other by inches. Fate keeps sending them in opposite directions and on a series of near misses. It’s a fairytale and so light it will have you … Read entire article »

The Spanish Prisoner

The Spanish Prisoner

The Spanish Prisoner (1997)   David Mamet http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120176/ The Spanish Prisoner is a nice little Mamet character study that could  very well have been a play. Mamet’s dialogue style is fun for this – a tale about who you can trust and who you can not. Fans of THE USUAL SUSPECTS and THE STING will love this movie. It’s also a nice little vehicle for Steve Martin to sink his teeth into as he sheads his “wild and … Read entire article »

You Don’t Mess with the Zohan

You Don’t Mess with the Zohan

You Don’t Mess with the Zohan (2008)  Dennis Dugan http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0960144/ Say what you may about Adam Sandler – this movie was good old dumb fun! No need to go into the plot because the plot doesn’t really matter. This is sight gag heaven wrapped in a pure giggle wrapper. Grab a beer or soda, sit down, and just stop thinking for about 90 minutes while the goofy, Three Stooges-like humor flows over you. It’s a lot of … Read entire article »
