'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. …

THEME PARKS
Located in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is the place to find the “world’s largest fill in the blank.” Anything that can be built will be built larger here. Next Wednesday, we can add “indoor theme park” to the list. IMG Worlds of Adventure theme park will open its doors and welcome guests to four different themed areas: Lost Valley – Dinosaur Adventure, Cartoon Network, Marvel, and IMG Boulevard. Spanning 1.5 million square feet, IMG Worlds of Adventure can hold up to 30,000 guests a day and developers are hoping to see 4.5 million visitors within the park’s first year.

Lost Valley is home to 69 moving and “breathing” dinosaurs lead by Barosaurus who stands over 52 feet tall. According to Hindustan Times, it took IGM five years to bring the large critters to life. Each is built with a thin layer of shiny silicone rubber to help bring the illusion to life. You’ll find the Velociraptor roller coaster in Lost Valley as well. This crazy coaster features four loops (the largest one spans 105 feet) and reaches speed over 62 MPH. For those not quite ready for dino-sized thrills, they will enjoy the Dino Carousel that features friendlier versions of dinosaurs for little ones to ride on.
