'Puzzle' is Well Made, but a Few Pieces are Missing

MOVIE REVIEW
Based on the film Rompecabezas, Puzzle is one of those little-known independent films that sneaks into theaters with little to no fanfare, although the fact that it is being promoted “from the producer of Little Miss Sunshine” should help it get noticed somewhat. Puzzle is a quiet, little film about a woman who discovers that jigsaw puzzles are the key to changing her life. While the subject matter doesn’t sound all that exciting, the film really isn’t about puzzles but instead about one finding their voice, or so it appears. It’s also a message film that has its own agenda expecting the audience to agree with the choices of the main character and applaud her “brave” behavior. Frankly, it just feels manipulative.

Directed by Marc Turtletaub, Puzzle’s most impactful scene comes within the first few minutes. We see Agnes (Kelly MacDonald) cleaning up the house and they decorating it for a birthday party. Then we see her serving appetizers while being ignored by the guests. …

Angus T. Jones: No More a Half-Man

Angus T. Jones (KHOU TV)

Former co-stars Angus T. Jones and
Charlie Sheen (CBS)
Angus T. Jones, the former “half-man” in the CBS sitcom, “Two and a Half Men,” has re-emerged publicly since leaving the show. Sporting a beard that the Duck Dynasty men would approve of, the 20-year-old sat down for an interview with Houston’s KHOU TV. For those who have never watched it, Two and a Half Men originally starred Charlie Sheen as a happy playboy bachelor who reluctantly opens his home to his brother (Jon Cryer) and his son Jake (Jones). After fallout with creator Chuck Lorre in 2011, Sheen was fired/quit the show and Ashton Kutcher replaced him. Then, in 2012, Jones was seen in a YouTube video where he pleaded with people to not watch the show as he described it as “filth” and “very inappropriate.” He later apologized and continued playing the role until Lorre was able to write the character out of the show.
