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

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.

Starbucks Sells a Vamp Frapp

Starbucks to offer vampire-inspired beverage.
Starbucks has announced that the company would be selling a new vampire-inspired Frappula Frappuccinos  from October 28-31 in the United States. The beverage will stay on the menu one day longer in Canada and has already been offered in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and in some countries in Asia.

This isn't the first time that Starbucks created a monster mix. Last year they offered the Franken Frappuccino.

Wouldn't this go well with your Burger King Halloween Whopper?
