Justice League

REVIEW: Roman J. Israel, Esq.

posted: 11/17/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

Screenwriter Dan Gilroy’s directorial debut, Nightcrawler, a dark and dirty satire about the “if it bleeds, it leads” culture in today’s media, hit the sweet spot for many.

Israel, Esq., struggles to surpass.

Style: 'Wonder,' 'Justice League' movie reviews

posted: 11/16/2017 12:07 p.m. Discuss

Wonder is the story of a little boy who looks different and the way he makes his way in the world.

RESTAURANT REVIEW + PHOTOS: Dugan’s updates, adds to vast menu

posted: 11/16/2017 4:30 a.m. Discuss

Dugan's Pub, which we've always considered to be the most modest of central Arkansas' three ostensibly Irish pubs, recently updated its menu. Proprietor Don Dugan's new bill of fare adds nearly a dozen new dishes to a pretty broad lineup of Irish, semi-Irish, quasi-Irish and good ol' American items.
