Sent Me Though a Loop

Must-see-movie of October 2012? Are you looking for a movie that will wake you up out of the hum-drum of your life, make you reflect on the power of memory, the human spirit, and love? Well then Looper is the movie that you should frequent. YouTube Preview Image

This science-fiction film does everything in its power to break out of the stereotypes of science-fiction. Set in a dystopic future, Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, a drug-addicted assassin who kills…you probably didn’t guess it…men from the future. Thirty years into the future, time-travel has been invented, and crime bosses have decided to use this highly illegal technology to dispose of bodies.

Not interested yet? Bruce Willis (that’ll do it) plays Old Joe, who is sent back in time to be killed by Young Joe. Still follow me? He escapes, and Joe must kill Old Joe or else he’ll be ousted by his own boss. Old Joe can defend himself against Young Joe, but can’t kill him because doing so would be terminating himself. Using the power of a changing memory, Old Joe must protect himself and avoid being killed by himself all while trying to save the future from–

Well, I don’t want to give too much away. Hopefully this has gotten you interested enough to go out to your local theater and support a movie that is both literary and action-packed in all of its plot-twists. It’s one of the more intelligent and engaging movies I’ve seen in theaters for some time. So..what are you doing? Get out, go! Watch it!!!

Sushi: Indianapolis Style

Sushi Bar on UrbanspoonAfter expressing my love for sushi I couldn’t help but cry out with joy for the new Sushi Bar that recently opened up in the area.

Broad Ripple is constantly changing, welcoming the hip and new and exciting. This sushi bar went up in a building right on the main drag, between frozen yogurt, bagel sandwiches, and “burritos as big as your head.” The decor of the sushi bar is elegant in its oriental appeal. Bamboo panels the walls, swaying over dark cherry furniture. A golden swordfish hangs on the wall (that’s so boss, right?).

The food is fantastic in its range. Whether you want a few rolls of sushi (ranging from the more sophisticated styles at $11 to the simpler, more manageable $3-6 per roll) there are also plenty of dishes with noodles. From my limited experience, it seems authentic. At the very least it has avoided the run-of-the-mill chain sushi that Naked Chopsticks brings to the table.

I give this restaurant 1.8/2 chopsticks (equals 9/10).

If anyone has gone to this place and likes it, I hope you will go to this website and give them a positive review. I think this restaurant is a great enough addition to the Broad Ripple lineup that I would fight for it to stay. Check it out!
