The Apocalypse Never Looked So Beautiful

This is one of the most stunning animated films I've ever seen.  I truly cannot recommend it highly enough.

Cowboy Cookies

Cowboy Cookies
Wilkes University - Wilkes-Barre, PA
The dining hall at school has kind of a hybrid oatmeal and chocolate chip cookie that I've never had before.  They're called Cowboy Cookies, and they're absolutely delicious!

Taking The Fun Out Of Woodstock

Taking Woodstock (2009)
Cinemark - Moosic, PA
This film is evidently based on the the true story of Elliot Tiber.  This is the man who was responsible for getting the permit to bring the 1969 Woodstock festival to Max Yasgur's farm in Bethel, New York.  If the film is to be believed, he's also the man who wasted his opportunity to take part in the most iconic moment in the history of rock & roll.

As for the movie, it somehow manages to make Woodstock feel dull and boring, and it tops off a disappointing story with a cringe-worthy scene that borders on antisemitism.  I can't think of anyone that this movie would appeal to on any level.
