Chow, Baby never met a falafel it didn’t love. OK, that’s not entirely true. But it’s an awful falafel that doesn’t meet or exceed my admittedly low expectations. The same is true for gyros, hummus, and most things Midd...
Let’s hear it for this musical remake that’s better than the original.
Like many of you, I had zero expectations for the remake of Footloose. The original 1984 film has already had a second life as a Broadway musical. A third version just seemed like yet another case of Hollywood remaking somethin...
No redneck rockers, thankfully. Just the holy trinity of Copland, Bernstein, and Gershwin.
