‘Isn’t it Romantic’ debunks the rom-com

(02/19/19 4:28am)

As an homage to the romantic comedy, the new film “Isn’t It Romantic” — released the day before Valentine’s — provides a highlight reel of favorite scenes from the most beloved of the genre. In reinventing Julia Roberts’ iconic white outfit in “Pretty Woman,” the “I’ll have what she’s having” orgasm scene from ‘When Harry Met Sally’ and the apartment makeover from “13 Going on 30,” the film reminds the audience what makes those movies lovable. However, the lack of originality in “Isn’t it Romantic” causes the audience to reminisce over past favorites instead of applauding the new film for its own humor and uniqueness.

Pizza recipes for every meal

(02/21/19 4:12am)

I am a huge pizza fan. However, sometimes my go-to order from Papa John’s — pepperoni and sausage with extra sauce — seems too routine. I realized that pizza is actually very versatile, and the amount of different pizza recipes is quite extensive. I also think pizza should not exclusively be a dinner or lunch food — the classic pizza dish can be altered to fit any meal of the day.
