I am well aware that most of you (myself included) are champing at the bit while waiting for this weekend's release of The Hunger Games. I expect that The Hunger Games (and the sequels) will go down in history as one of the great SF/fantasy film franchises of all time: up there with the Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter films.

What a great find! I picked this movie to watch because it starred Robert Redford. What a hunk! I wasn’t optimistic that this would be a movie I could watch all the way through. Boy, was I wrong. Tennessee Williams is an awesome storyteller, and with a dynamic duo like Robert Redford and Natalie Wood, this is a must see movie. It was also great to see Charles Bronson and William Blake in their younger days. I was hoping for a happy ending, but alas, it was not to be.
The other day I was helping two customers who had familiar accents. Taking a rare chance, I asked if they were from the Dominican Republic. That’s the D.R. for those familiar with the place, the food, and most of all, the wonderful people.
