The movie is set in the 1920s and based on the life of Howard Hughes (movie maker and the man behind Hughes Aircraft). It starts off a little slow and confusing, then picks up and keeps you very engaged to the very end. The dialogues, especially in the early part of the movie are sometimes a little difficult to follow. The Senate hearing scenes towards the end are superbly dramatized with the right “masala”. Overall, an excellent film.
Leornardo DiCaprio in the lead role is very impressive. A super performance, no doubt. I believe he also co-produced the movie. Smart move. See this movie if you get a chance.
If you plan see the movie, give this background on Howard Hughes a quick read.
Check out the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield, CA if get a chance. If you are headed to Napa this can be a nice stop over for the kids. Unlike the regular robot infested factory floors, this one is so vibrant with all the colors of the jelly beans. Beware, they give you plenty of sample jelly beans that are bound to drive the kids completely hyper if you don’t ration them out!
I am not a pizza lover. Unfortunately, I sometimes end up eating pizza at work simply because it is convenient, fast and delivered. The closest Pizza Hut to work is at:
1241 W El Camino Real
Sunnyvale, CA 94087
For the third time in a row over a course of about 6 months, I have ended up with an upset stomach after ordering pizza from this store! 😦
On the other hand, I have had much better luck with Little Caesar’s pizza. Very aggressive pricing, yet decent quality. They don’t deliver in most places.
