Fandango - We've Got Your Movie Tickets!

By Mar Yvette

Man vs. nature. Man vs. man. Man vs. self. These outer and inner conflicts inhabit every moment in “The Revenant,” director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s cinematic tour de force. The title aptly refers to Leonardo DiCaprio’s character who quite literally comes back from near-death to seek revenge on the man (played by a remarkably villainous Tom Hardy) who abandoned him and killed his son.

Fandango - We've Got Your Movie Tickets!


Directed by Tom Hopper (“The King’s Speech,” “Les Misérables”), “The Danish Girl” is a beautifully made film that tells the story of Lili Elbe and her transition from man to woman in late-1920s Copenhagen and Paris. Today, the subject of transgenderism is very present in our media, but during Lili’s lifetime, it was almost unheard of; she was one of the first people to get sex-reassignment surgery.

Dining Behind the Orange Curtain

by Rich Manning


Over the past few years, the Orange County dining scene has experienced an invasion of sorts. A growing number of non-mega-chain restaurants originating in Los Angeles and other major cities have made their way down to OC, bringing with them the promise of innovative food and big city know-how. Yet there’s been one constant amid all the hoopla: While many of these places are good, they often fall short in terms of sheer culinary excitement when compared to homegrown offerings.


What follows is a list of places you may have missed while checking out the OC version of a major metropolitan joint. Some venues still carry that new restaurant smell, while others have been open long enough to leave you out of excuses if you have yet to visit. Check these Orange County restaurants off your “must-visit” list pronto.

The Ocean Endeavor in Greenland

The Ocean Endeavor in Greenland

 

By John and Sandra Nowlan

 

We spotted polar bears on day three: not just one or two but about a dozen of the magnificent snow-white beasts on solo treks along the edge of the treeless tundra.

 

These sightings came as we sailed far north of the Arctic Circle on a two-week Adventure Canada cruise following the fabled route of the Northwest Passage. It was early September, the ideal time for Arctic cruising, with plenty of sunlight and (usually) lots of open water. Temperatures averaged 5 to 10 degrees above freezing.
