Walking Dead: Terminus Season Finale

Well they've been worried about being eaten by zombies but now I think they gotta watch becoming some people chow.  At lead Rick didn't make it to eating one of those plates they were offering.

So what support from the episode do I have from the episode for my assumption.  Well they have been directed into a cattle car to start.  Next when they were being shot at they ran by a pile of skeletal remains.  That might not be such a big deal if there was livestock in anyone of those scenes.

I will tell you they left so much open I am going to burst at the seems before October.  I am not sure I am going to be able to take it.  Walking Dead is the one show I watch religiously and the church has been closed for six months.  It's wrong, I tell ya.

Bad Words Movie Review

There are obviously some bad words said in the movie and it is inappropriate for children but it is very funny.  I recommend checking it out.  There aren't many knee slapping laughs and it seemed like different part of the movie were funny to different parts of the audience.  That seems like something negative to say but it actually make the movie much more interesting.

I liked the story, character development and ending.  The movie kept a good pace so there is nothing to claim about.  Despite some earlier comments I wouldn't say the movie is outlandish, it is simply meant for adults. Definitely make it to this flick if you get the time this weekend.

Omar's Mediterranean and Italian Review

Omar's is a small restaurant located in St. Ann, MI am O just outside of St. Louis.  I am mixed about my experience at Omar's.  The dinner started off strong in terms of the food but quickly unraveled.  The problems are clear.  One of the major issues the restaurant suffers from is a lack of a good POS system and the staff clearly isn't trained very well.  Our server although nice issued a lot of "I don't know's".

So let's start off with the positives.  The waitress was really nice.  The appetizers were great.  I got kibbeh and chicken wings.  The kibbeh was a first for me.  Tasting it on its own it's got a strange spice profile although it is not spicy.  It comes with a sauce similar to tazekeh sauce which creates a perfect harmony with the spice profile of the kibbeh.  I don't know why but I was craving chicken wings.  I didn't expect much from a Mediterranean joint but they were really meaty and are comparable to really good bar wings.

We hit a hiccup when it came to the appetizers.  My wife order the clam fettuccine with clams.   Well the communication from the from to the back got messed up and the cook prepared the normal fettuccine.  That put a delay on my dish the mixed grill which ended up coming out overcooked and cold.  If they hadn't had the issue with having to recook my wife's dish I think everything would have been better.  The other issue is she asked for red sauce and they brought a cream sauce claiming it was a red sauce.  They stirred in some tomato sauce making it pinkish.  Not the most appetizing color.  All that being said the pizzas looked very interesting so I am definitely giving this place another shot.

The other big issue is the atmosphere.  This is a very tiny and very cluttered restaurant.  They have an all you can eat bar.  Some out of place bar stools next to a booth chair and table.  Then the accessories are just all over the place.  They also have those plastic grape things hanging from the lots, which are obviously dusty.  The color profile of most everything in the place is brown and beige.  They could do a lot by just reducing the amount of shit in the place.  Then they could brighten up some of the brown paneling with a little color.  They could do wanders with a little elbow grease and a couple buckets of paint.  They could also update the furniture but I can understand that they are probably struggling.

Well I think with a little community support this place could become a gem.  I overheard a carry out customers stated he had been in three times that week so they have to be do something right.  I can also say that a lot of what I had seemed to be homemade.  I'd recommend checking this place out.

Oh one more thing.  Owner's listen up.  It is cool that you don't sell pork, I get it, but get the turkey bacon out of the restaurant.   I didn't have anything with turkey bacon but if you had bacon before you'd be insulted.  Replace the bacon with something completely unrelated like summer sausage, get creative.

Non Stop Movie Review

To enjoy this movie you'll have to put your brain on the back burner.  It was very predictable although I wasn't right about everything.  The pickings in the theater are pretty slim right now but I would still skip this movie.

It does keep up a pretty fast pace and has a few plot twists. The key to enjoying this movie is to actually not try to think it through.  Just sit back and relax if you do chose to see this flick.  There are some Speed moments as well and by that a mean some scenes are complete bullshit.  For instance a character in the movie gets wrecked against cockpit twice and continues to resume his task like it never happened.  The experience didn't even shake off his glasses.

The worst part of me was when everything unravels the reasoning behind the plot.  The best part of the movie was one of the characters reaction to the little speech that results.  I was hilarious.


Alright at the end of the movie the hijackers are two soldiers that are upset with the fact that America really hasn't changed since the war and 911.  So they are bring to light that America really isn't safe by framing the Air Marshall.  The white hijacker state he never planned to escape the flight and the black hijacker reacts like what you talking 'bout fool.  The scene wasn't meant to be fun so I ended up being the only one in the movie theater who cracked up.  The social stereotypes were so evident in the movie I found the situation funny.

Cafe Kebab Ellisville Missouri Review

The food is really good.  A lot of Mediterranean joints start at well but the food quality diminishes rapidly.  I will definitely be going back.   They had a few things on their menu I haven't had, that I want to try.  I am not very familiar with Bosnian food and it seems like that is where the owners are from.  They were busy when I went and the where running out of things.  We had a twenty - thirty minute wait time for our food

I wasn't impressed with the Gyro Platter but the mixed grill was great.  I wish I would have asked for more taziki when I ordered.  I also got the an appetizer called the 4 Way Combo (I think).  It was really good.   I am not a real big fan of Babaganoush but I really enjoyed the dip.  They did have a Philly sandwich on the menu so no need to be sacred if you have picky eaters with you.

The atmosphere is pretty nice.  A piece of advice for them would be to replace their menu with a chalk board.  It seems like they are still ironing things out in that department so you'll see paper covering some things and other thing crossed out.  It looks shabby.  It would be better to put up something that is meant to be changed.  Well I hope you make it out to Cafe Kebab and share you experience in the comment section.

Walking Dead: After

Alright, Walking Dead is back.  I might just get rid of my TV after this series it is so good.  Between Walking Dead and Breaking Bad AMC has really ruined other TV experiences.  

I am not going to lie, this episode wasn't the most exciting.  I do think it was a meaningful episode.  It really displayed the human element of the apocalypse and Carl's has been brewing as a character for a long time.  I think he becomes a main character after this episode.  Prior to this I think Carl has been more of a background character and I know there are people that would disagree with that statement.  In this episode Carl comes to terms with his weaknesses and gets a better understanding of his father.  Then Rick tells him he is a man as the episode closes. 

I also think a scene that is easy to overlook it very powerful.  Rachone crosses the road twice.  The first time she is heading away from tracks leading to her group then she heads back crossing the road to go find them.  Even though a lot of things have been left unanswered and might not been action packed this was a very powerful episode.
