SCV -- Hollywood's Backlot: Halfway House Café

Oftentimes, finding familiar things in unfamiliar places can be a bit unsettling. I was reminded of this last year when my wife and I were watching television in our hotel room outside the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza. We were packing our bags for a day-hike when an image of the Halfway House Café, a restaurant we frequent only a couple of miles from our Canyon Country home, appeared on the screen.

Review: 'Where the Wild Things Are'

Where the Wild Things Are" reflects so much of a plucky little kid: the flirting up of anger at a parent, the defiant escape into fantasy, the tough talk in a tight situation, the exuberance, and then the fundamental need to return home and be loved and reassured.
