‘The Visit’ fails at eliciting horror, only entices humor

If “The Visit” was reviewed as a straightforward experience, it would be necessary to ding it. The characters are flat and irritating, the performances vacillate wildly, there’s wildly inappropriate moments of sentimentality, and the plot on its own feels exploitative and mean. However, looking at the film as an experience, as a night out, it should be praised…

‘The Intergalactic Nemesis’ dazzles with stellar performance

Radio drama has had a strange resurgence in the recent past. “Welcome to Nightvale,” the offbeat, dark and always funny adventure, has become one of America’s most listened to podcasts. The University of Miami’s very own radio station, WVUM, dazzled listeners with it’s short fiction program, “Pure Imagination.” And now, the grand tradition of audio drama is…

Holocaust fact, fiction face off in ‘The Soap Myth’

It’s a gruesome question, but one that captures the horror of the era. It turns the stomach and boggles the mind. And the horrifying fact is that it’s still argued about today. Did the Nazi’s make soap out of their victims?​ That’s the question, not answered, but explored by “The Soap Myth,” a filmed play screened…

Spelling bee musical scores serious laughs

Flabbergasting. Definition: Amazing, dazing one with shock and wonder.  Used in a sentence: “‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’ playing at the Jerry Herman Ring Theatre, is positively flabbergasting,” or so audiences will say after viewing the delightful, witty and spectacularly performed production. The show, chronicling the emotionally charged, yet completely superfluous spelling bee,…

Kyojin features unlimited sushi

When you first walk into Kyojin Japanese Buffet, your expectations are immediately lowered.  In the outdated, poorly lit, dingy dining room, you notice only a few customers.  And then the big question hits you – was this a mistake? Perhaps you try to calm yourself and start off with soup.  How bad could soup be? …

Mixt’s blend of cultures thrives with clear, natural flavors

When you first hear the concept of Mixt, the new restaurant off Sunset Drive, you can’t help but be dubious. Peruvian and Japanese cuisines, at first glance, do not seem to be obviously compatible. However, both feature raw or at least nontraditionally prepared fish (ceviche and sushi, respectively) and place a strong emphasis on clear,…
