Starbuck

A sitcom premise with spunk.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Thanksgiving brings Vince Vaughn's Delivery Man to theaters, but you can see it now, more or less, in Starbuck, the 2011 French dramedy that serves as the source material for the American remake.

The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec

‘Extraordinary,’ indeed!


Action

Rod Lott
How ironic that un film par Luc Besson — the Frenchman behind such action smashes as the Taken and The Transporter series, among others — would fail to play American theaters, yet that’s what happened with The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec. The 2010 adventure finally sees the light of day on these shores from Shout! Factory; its absence from our multiplexes is not indicative of its quality.

The Brontë Sisters

Poetry in emotion.


Drama

Aimee Williams

In the House

Sit, please! And stay a while.


Drama

Rod Lott
Pay no mind to the bland prepositional phrase serving as the title for In the House; the film by celebrated French writer/director François Ozon is built with plenty of layers.

Balls out

Cattlemen’s Steakhouse has served a surprising Oklahoma staple for almost 100 years.


Food and Drink Features

Emily Anderson
Charles Barkley wouldn’t try them, but President George H.W. Bush would: lamb fries. Not your average American french fry.

Gimme a break

Breakfast items vary from country to country but have one thing in common: they are delicious.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
You know you need breakfast before you go on an all-day holiday shopping trip, but all you currently have in your kitchen is ketchup, a can of tuna and some okra because there’s no time to shop for groceries. Bored to tears of the traditional American breakfast of eggs, bacon and toast? Take a trip around the world, treat yourself before noon and get your holiday shopping on.

Yes to de-stress

Oui candles are more than wax; they are handcrafted works of art.


Features

Liz Blood
Angela Hodgkinson’s home smells like vanilla, cedarwood, rose and packing peanuts. Her candle business, Oui, is small enough to be contained in a oneroom studio, though she sells to highend retailers in eleven cities across the US, including New York City, Austin, Los Angeles and Seattle.
