In the same vein of “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Catcher in the Rye,” Rudolfo Anaya’s “Bless Me, Ultima” has evolved into one of the most widely beloved and challenged books of all time. In some high schools this best-selling Chicano novel is considered a mandatory reading. Other schools have banished the book for its use of profanity, references to witchcraft, and religious themes. For anyone with an open mind, “Bless Me, Ultima” is certainly an enriching read-through about acceptance, family, faith, culture, and independence. The charm of Anaya’s novel sadly doesn’t shine through this adaptation by Carl Franklin, which gets bogged down by wooden performance and insipid direction.

“The Five-Year Engagement” had a surprisingly poor opening over the weekend, grossing only $11.1 million and placing fourth at the box office. “Think Like a Man” maintained first place for the second week in a row, grossing $18 million, and somehow, someway, maybe by some misalignment of Jupiter’s moons with Venus, even “The Lucky One” (those who read my review last week know how I feel about this movie) managed to top “The Five-Year Engagement” over the weekend.

Driving through Tucson, one notices an abundance of colorful
restaurant signs inhabiting the city’s crowded streets. Familiar
corporate logos can be found on every corner alongside local chains
and family owned establishments. Not only are there endless places
to dine at, a common theme seems to connect many eateries on these
cluttered roads; most menus are not centralized around a healthy
diet. Between your typical fast-food staples, and the inexhaustible
(although delightful) Mexican venues, it can be nearly impossible
to enjoy a delicious yet healthy meal while dining out.
