"Mr. & Mrs. Smith" v. "Allied"

They are more alike than you think.

"Mr. & Mrs. Smith" v. "Allied"
E Online

If you're not up to speed on the whole Brangelina thing, I'll give you the short version. Brad and Angelina are getting a divorce after 12 years of being together. Jolie initiated the divorce, filing against Pitt citing "irreconcilable differences." It has come out that these "differences" involved Brad's parenting and use of drugs and alcohol. Jolie is asking for physical custody of their six children, but would allow Pitt visitation. Yikes.

There is also speculation that Pitt cheated on Jolie with his "Allied" co-star, Marion Cotillard. Though Cotillard denies having anything to do with the split, it is quote ironic. Here's why...

Angelina and Brad met while filming a movie together, "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," in 2005. Pitt and Cotillard met while filming their upcoming movie, "Allied." Pitt, at the time of "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," was dating Jennifer Aniston. He allegedly cheated on Jennifer with Angelina, resulting in the birth of Brangelina. If the rumors about Marion Cotillard are true, then Angelina is now in the same situation that Jennifer Anniston was in. Ironic, right?

But wait! There's more...

"Mr. & Mrs. Smith" is about a seemingly normal married couple. However, they are actually two assassins who have secretly been hired to kill each other. This, of course, causes them to not trust each other and creates tension. (Also ironic: their marriage is crumbling, and they seek therapy to avoid divorce.) "Allied" is about an intelligence officer who finds out that his wife might be a German spy. He is told that if she is, he must kill her. This, of course, causes him not to trust her and creates tension. Sound familiar? It should!

Here are the trailers for both movies.

Whether the plot similarities and time of release for "Allied" are coincidental or not, there sure is a lot of irony surrounding it!

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.
