That looks amazing.
But why the fuck is that sushi roll place called a "ramen bar?" And when i was in japan there was certainly no sriracha to be found anywhere that i recall.
Watched Louis Malles' semi-autobiographical Au Revoir Les Enfants yesterday. It's a beautiful, restrained film about the German occupation of France, through the eyes of young Jewish boy in hiding. It was a friend's old Criterion DVD; think it's still in print. Highly recommended. Oh, and, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work was a fun, unvarnished look at a couple of years in Rivers' life. She's still hungry after all these years it seems. Good stuff.
Did anyone see Midnight's Children when it was briefly in theatres? Curious to see if that sprawling narrative could really make the transition to film.

The ramen bar near me often has sushi available as an appetizer. They're probably serving more sushi just because they work as a snack when one is not looking for a meal like a bowl of ramen.
All the hanging wire mesh strainers would be used for ramen, not sushi. And pictures like this show large pots for the broth and/or noodles.
There was a Gosford Park board game that came out when the film became kind of an art house hit, the objective was to prove that you're not the killer.
We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
Gosford Park might be my favorite Altman film.
Of course it is
After hearing some pretty positive reviews from people I trust, I used a free movie ticket to go see The Conjuring tonight. It wasn't terrible, but it was merely more of the same as far as what filmmakers have been doing within the horror genre as of late. There were a lot of seemingly unintentional things going on in the film that were off-putting - parts of the film felt like farce when they weren't supposed to, and there were some downright cheesy moments that were trying to come across as sincere.
I read something the other day that I completely agree with - that the scariest and best horror films build an atmosphere of terror, a mood that is really unnerving, and relies on that to provide the scare. As opposed to the trap of cheap, jumpy scares that every film like this (and including this one) seems to fall into these days.
I don't post on her much because I think Schoolofruckus is out of his mind, not in a bad way, just crazy.
I went to a screening of "Mistaken for Strangers" at the Grammy Museum with a Q&A with Tom & Matt afterwards. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this film.
I also saw Pacific Rim recently, what I remember most is that someone brought a baby to the midnight screening and it was screaming all night and some kid told me he felt there should have been more character development and less robot fighting. I thought that was an odd review for a film that features robot fighting but what do I know? Not a lot apparantly.
I also saw the "Bling Ring", it was much more toned down than what I was expecting. Maybe I was expecting it to be more like Spring Breakers? I don't know. Did I enjoy it?? I don't really know, the movie didn't make me feel much of anything.
The last good horror movie was The Ring and that was over 10 years ago.
Has anybody seen The Last Will & Testament of Rosalind Leigh?
I've heard the The Orphanage (2007) is good too, but I haven't seen that one yet.
Apparently if a horror movies starts with The, it's gonna be good.
The Descent is one of the best horror movies of the last 10 years. Expecially the first half of the film. Also liked Martyrs quite a bit.
Drag Me To Hell was pretty great in 2009.
I saw God Only Forgives last night. I don't know why it's getting so much hate as I really enjoyed it.
