Bumpy's

The scent is one of delicate earth, slightly sweet; yet, it doesn’t smell like food or cloying fake dessert. The

This thriller is worth the ride

“Untraceable” is a horrifying thriller, smart and tightly told, and merciless. It begins with this premise: A psychopath devises ways to slowly kill people online, in live streaming video.

New Rambo

Rambo Sylvester Stallone last year breathed new life into the “Rocky” series. Now, he turns to resurrecting his Rambo character. It would excite me if the film revisits the ideas of the original “First Blood” rather than the rescue, shoot-up nonsense the series evolved into. In the new film, John Rambo is

Odd shows

“odd couple” Neil Simon’s recipe for onstage success: Take two people with conflicting personalities. Put them in confined living quarters. Add a sprinkle of personal hygiene jokes. Allow the tension to rise for about an hour. Cool. Serve. Enjoy! Paradise Theatre is staging this classic buddy comedy about roommates from different
