Sasaki Time's Zocalo (Roseville, CA) Restaurant Review

My friend Carrie took me to one of her favorite restaurants in the Roseville area in Northern California.
I love that the tortilla chips come with both fresh salsa as well as black beans. I love chips and salsa and could eat these all day. The chips are huge and crisp and that salsa has just the right amount of kick. The black beans is a welcomed addition and go well with the salsa or just by itself to dip the chips in.
Carrie ordered her favorite, the Americanos. These are tacos that have braised chicken, crispy tortillas, shredded lettuce, salsa ranchera, jack cheese, tomato, house hot sauce, cotija and sour cream!

As you can see the dish is complete with cilantro lime rice, black beans and a seasonal salad. Everything is fresh and locally produced.

I went wit the tacos de cazuela! Check out this amazing dish! You can choose between steak or chicken. I went with the steak! The steak is then sauteed with house chorizo, onions, mushrooms and queso baked and served casserole-style.

The flavors here are unbelievable. This dish is the best parts of tacos and a stew! It's so rich and hearty and all the flavors really come together! This is a must try dish!

If you are looking for a great place for fresh Mexican food, then look no further! A great location with a great staff are all waiting for you!

Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks film titled "Bridge of Spies", to be scored by Thomas Newman


BURBANK, Calif. (March 18, 2015) – DreamWorks Pictures’/Fox 2000 Pictures’ upcoming dramatic thriller directed bythree-time Academy Award®-winning director Steven Spielberg (“Saving Private Ryan,” “Schindler’s List”) and starring two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (“Forrest Gump,” “Philadelphia”), has been titled “Bridge of Spies.” In addition, 12-time Oscar® nominee Thomas Newman (“The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Saving Mr. Banks”) has been signed to score the film, as John Williams’ schedule was interrupted and he was unavailable to score the film due to a minor health issue, now corrected.

A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, “Bridge of Spies” tells the story of James Donovan (Hanks), a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. Screenwriters Matt Charman and Ethan Coen & Joel Coen have woven this remarkable experience in Donovan’s life into a story inspired by true events that captures the essence of a man who risked everything and vividly brings his personal journey to life. The film will be released in theaters nationwide on October 16, 2015.

Williams, whose credits include “Stars Wars: The Force Awakens” and the “Harry Potter” films, will join Spielberg on his next film, “The BFG,” beginning later this year, continuing their unprecedented collaboration which they have enjoyed for over 40 years. 

Newman has scored many films for DreamWorks, including "The Help,” “Road to Perdition" and "American Beauty,” the latter two for which he received Academy Award® nominations for Best Original Score.

“Bridge of Spies” also stars three-time Tony Award® winner Mark Rylance (“Twelfth Night,” “Jerusalem,” “Boeing Boeing”) as Rudolf Abel, a KGB agent defended by Donovan; Scott Shepherd (“Side Effects”) as CIA operative Hoffman; Academy Award® nominee Amy Ryan (“Birdman,” “Gone Baby Gone”) as James’ wife, Mary; Sebastian Koch (“A Good Day to Die Hard”) as East German lawyer Vogel; and Academy Award nominee Alan Alda (“M*A*S*H,” “The Aviator”) as Thomas Watters, a partner at Donovan’s law firm.

Fox 2000 Pictures co-financed “Bridge of Spies” with DreamWorks in association with Participant Media, and will distribute internationally. Disney will handle domestic distribution. In addition to directing, Spielberg will produce the film with Marc Platt (“Into the Woods,” “Drive”) and Kristie Macosko Krieger (“Lincoln”), with Adam Somner (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Daniel Lupi (“Her”), Jeff Skoll (“The Hundred-Foot Journey”) and Jonathan King (“Cesar Chavez”) serving as executive producers. The screenplay is by Matt Charman (“Suite Francaise”) and three-time Academy Award® winners Ethan Coen & Joel Coen (“No Country for Old Men,” “Fargo”).

The company’s recent releases include “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” starring Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal and Charlotte Le Bon and directed by Lasse Hallström based on the best-selling novel by Richard C. Morais, and the car-racing actioner “Need for Speed,” starring Aaron Paul. Other releases include: the comedy “Delivery Man,” starring Vince Vaughn; Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones, which grossed over $270 million at the worldwide box office and was nominated for 12 Academy Awards® with Daniel Day-Lewis winning for Best Actor; “Real Steel,” starring Hugh Jackman and directed by Shawn Levy; Spielberg’s “War Horse,” based on Michael Morpurgo’s award-winning book and nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture; and “The Help,” which resonated with audiences around the country and earned over $200 million at the box office and received four Academy Award nominations with Octavia Spencer winning for Best Supporting Actress. Upcoming films include “The Light Between Oceans,” directed by Derek Cianfrance and based on the novel by M. L. Stedman, which stars Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz and “The BFG,” based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl, starring Mark Rylance and to be directed by Spielberg.

Giveaway: The Flintstones and WWE Stone Age Smackdown Blu-Ray Combo Pack!


One of my favorite animated series as a child is back in an all-new animated film that will delight old and new fans alike! The animation is very reminiscent of the original series with some great new cultural references (i.e. Stonebucks instead of Starbucks).

Here is the storyline:

When Fred loses his family's vacation money, he hatches one of his hair brained plans to get it back. It's a sports entertainment spectacle that involves throwing his best bud, Barney into the wrestling ring with the likes of John Cenastone (John Cena), Rey Mysteriopal (Rey Mysterio) and even The Undertaker, with Fred himself as event promoter! The crowds roar, the "clams" are pouring in from ticket sales and even Mr. McMagma (Vince McMahon) is taking notice of all the hoopla. Including all-star appearances from The Boulder Twins (Brie and Nikki Bella) Marble Henry (Mark Henry) and Daniel Bry-Rock (Daniel Bryan), it's time to get the whole family together for hard-hitting, side-splitting laughs from the most epic event in all of prehistory!

Sasaki Time's Movie Review of Disney's Cinderella (Live-Action)


Kenneth Branagh's takes us into the truly magical world of Cinderella, a world more fully rendered and realized than the animated classic. From majestic sets, to wonderful costumes, to a sweeping musical score, to amazing performances from an outstanding cast, this is one movie that is destined to become a classic.

We begin the tale with Ella at her youth. Her friends who are the animals around her and the love of her parents are very evident here. You will quickly care about Ella and her parents. Which makes the loss of Ella's mom that much harder but bonds Ella and her father closer than ever.


Then enter the evil stepmother, played to perfection by Cate Blanchett!


The stepmother brings along her two horrible daughters and Ella's world begins to change. Only Ella's good heart and virtue are keeping her strong.


When Ella's father leaves, she is left to move into the attic and becomes the maid for the three new women in the house. Ella's world has come to a crashing halt. When the three women see ash and soot on Ella's face, one of them proclaims her new name to be Cinder-Ella.


Ella then runs into the Prince, or as he introduces himself, as Kit, an apprentice at the Palace. And Kit doesn't really lie about himself, it is the truth from a certain point of view. Ella, remains anonymous, but you can see the sparks of romance begin to fly between these two.


As it becomes time for the ball, the anger you feel as Stepmother and the step-sisters destroy Ella's dress is real. Watching them tear Ella's mother's dress apart is heartbreaking. But then the Fairy Godmother appears and the magic truly begins!


Ella's dress is pure magic! The way her dress moves is something that animation could never truly capture! And then we know the rest of the story as Ella leaves at the stroke of midnight. She leaves behind one of her glass slippers and the Prince sends the Grand Duke and the Captain of the Guards to find the young woman who fits this glass slipper.


Searching out every young maiden, will they find Ella? Will the story have a happy ending? Well all I can say is that Cinderella ends magically.


To get everyone ready for the magic of Cinderella, you will see the wonderful, charming animated short, Frozen Fever. All of your favorite characters from Frozen are back to get ready to celebrate Anna's birthday.


You will be introduced to a catchy new song and some cute new characters.


Disney has created a magical day at the movies with friends and family.

The story of Cinderella is a magical one. Ella needs the prince as much as the prince needs Ella. They both fight their demons and fall in love with one another. This is a fairy tale for all of us.

Inside Out - Official US Trailer 2


The new trailer for Inside Out is here! Watch now and see the film June 19th!

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind. 

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
