‘Epic’ doesn’t live up to its name

Messages may be too intense for younger viewers
There's an odd paradox lying within "Epic." The basic elements of the story are clearly aimed at a very young audience. A forest is watched over by a benevolent queen (Beyonce Knowles) and an army of tiny soldiers called Leafmen, who protect it from equally minuscule goblin-like creatures called Boggans. When the balance of power is shifted, our plucky heroine M.K. (Amanda Seyfried) is accidentally shrunk down to Leafman size and must work with all manner of forest critters to restore the natural order. > Read more.

Whale of a treat

Ironfish delights with a variety of tasty catches

I was overjoyed to head back for another meal at Ironfish by Pescados, considered the Best New Restaurant in 2011 by both the Richmond Times Dispatch and Richmond Magazine. I agree whole-heartedly with their ratings. Since I first visited the restaurant for my birthday in January, I was waiting for the perfect special occasion to return. I couldn’t wait another year, obviously.

Run by the same restaurateurs as Pescados Latin Caribbean Seafood in Midlothian and Eat in Oregon Hill, Ironfish offers the same unique dishes and top-level customer service. > Read more.
