A couple of weeks ago, I invited some friends to dine with me at OKAN. Read about my 2nd visit at Dining with the Catty Critic. Was it as good as the first?
The Husband and I saw “District 9″ and “Inglourious Basterds” this past weekend. I have reviews for the two movies coming up. The short version is “Yes, go see them.”
“Inglourious Basterds” was the first Tarantino film that I really liked. I know, most people are ga-ga for Tarantino movies but I never saw Pulp Fiction and what scenes I did see didn’t engage me. I did see the two Kill Bill movies and while I appreciate them from an artistic point of view, I wasn’t really grabbed by the story or Uma Thurman. IB was just fantastic. Quirky, funny, action-y…
“District 9″ is great. It’s a nicely layered movie that has a good story and action but also depth and social commentary. A really well-rounded movie. Just beware of the shakey-cam during the first half…
I didn’t get a chance to update Dining with the Catty Critic with all the places I went to in the Bay Area and San Diego last week. However, I did post about our visit to the Playa Vista Farmer’s Market.
I’m in San Diego again for the week and have plans on going to Tsuruhashi, a Yakiniku (Japanese version of Korean BBQ) restaurant tonight.
