Arts & Culture

  • The Scene
  • Swordfish

    Director Dominic Sena (Gone in 60 Seconds) goes all the way with a plot that’s pure action (fresh, not frozen), a dash of bittersweet melodrama and a twist or two as it rushes against the clock.

    Rob Schneider spends most of this film’s 87 minutes responding to animal urges he can’t control or understand while courting the sweet Rianna ("Survivor" survivor Colleen Haskell). Though often funny in a light-hearted, juvenile way, this slapstick animal doesn’t have any bite.

    There’s nothing really thrilling about this polished but shallow pastiche of stock sci-fi situations from director Ivan Reitman, who uses the comedic blueprint he worked so well in Ghostbusters.

  • Thin, crisp pleasure

    Terra Cotta serves pizza for those who value an exceptionally thin crust with fresh and imaginative toppings. It's a friendly place, with brother-and-sister co-owners Greg and Dina Gnyc waiting tables themselves. Each pizza is made to order in a wood-fired clay oven, and the pizzas, salads and soups are not only very good, the prices are incredibly reasonable.
