Winged Creatures opens in theaters tomorrow

In the aftermath of a gruesome restaurant murder, the survivors of the attack are left to ponder their own mortality and how it relates to their connection to society.  Forest Whitaker, Guy Pearce, Kate Beckinsale, and Dakota Fanning star in director Rowan Woods' adaptation of Roy Freirich's debut novel.   Winged Creatures premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival and opens Thursday, July 9, 2009, at a theater near you.  Check local listings for movie theaters and times.

Winged Creatures movie poster
MPAA: Rated R for violent content, sexuality and language.
Run time:  100 minutes
"Pic looks generally bland, though Woods manages some telling views of hospitals, casinos, diners and other iconic American spaces where people mingle and bump into each other -- sometimes fatally. Marcelo Zarvos' doomy, repetitive score tends to burden the film's already burdensome flow."  Variety

As there are currently a sparse number of critical reviews available for this movie, check back to see if this article is supplemented with additional movie reviews.

Serendipity 3 is home to the most decadent and expensive chocolate ice cream sundae in the world

At the New York landmark restaurant Serendipity 3, ice cream is taken to a different level. Owner, Stephen Bruce, had made Serendipity 3 the home to some of the most decadently divine, richly flavored sundae concoctions in the world. They give a wild 21st century spin on this dessert classic.  One of the most famous items on the menu is the frozen hot chocolate. Yes, frozen hot chocolate!  This rich chocolate delight is made from 15 different types of chocolate blended together and frozen then topped with a big mound of whipped cream.  


If you have your credit card handy, try the sumptuously lavish Golden Opulence Sundae, which holds the Guinness World Record as the most expensive ice cream in the world. This dessert costs a whopping $1,000 per sundae and reservations are required 48 hours in advance.  The dessert originated as part of the 50th anniversary of the restaurant and about 10 a year are still sold today.


  Most expensive ice cream sundae.Golden Opulence SundaeThe sundae starts with 5 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla which gives the ice cream an incredible vanilla experience. The ice cream is coated with more edible 23k gold leaf and the gilded confection is artfully arranged in the crystal goblet. The sundae is drizzled with the world's most expensive chocolate, Amedei Porceleana, and covered with chunks of rare Chuao chocolate, which is from cocoa beans harvested by the Caribbean Sea on Venezuela's coast.  The masterpiece is suffused with exotic, incredibly delicious candied fruits from Paris, gold dragets (almonds coated in 23k gold), truffles and Marzipan Cherries. The sundae is topped with a tiny glass bowl of Grand Passion Caviar, an exclusive dessert caviar, made of salt-free American Golden caviar, sweetened and infused with fresh passion fruit, orange and Armagnac.  Known for its sparkling golden color, the caviar is nestled right on top of the final scoop of ice cream. 


The sundae is served in a Baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet lined with 23k edible gold and an 18k gold spoon as well as a petite mother of pearl spoon.  It is then topped with an exquisite gilded sugar flower by Ron Ben-Israel which takes 8 hours to construct. A last dusting of pure gold flakes for a glittering final touch and voila: the Golden Opulence Sundae!
