What worked:
In-house preparation of key ingredients makes for incredibly good food.
What needs work:
Don’t keep cookies and other desserts a secret. The eatery hides them behind the counter for special customers or something.   
The Tip:
so much better than national chain sub shops

If only that were true ...


Comedy

Bullet to the Head

Action's once more on the Sly.


Action

Rod Lott
Lines of cocaine, tubes of neon, Sylvester Stallone: Is this 1986 or 2013? In his first solo vehicle since his Expendables comeback, Sly shoots for a Bullet to the Head, but the action film only breaks the skin, so to speak.

This Is the End

If only that were true.


Comedy

Louis Fowler
This Is the End is the cinematic equivalent of being stuck in a living room with a group of High Times subscribers who have plenty of money to burn and plenty of fart jokes to release. Yes, there is a twist to it all, but it seems more like an afterthought than an actual plot point.
