Abrasive, presumptuous, abhorrent, and incorrigible...but so are the times we now live in

21 Thoughts on a Monday Morning How come new releases can’t crack $20M for an opening weekend lately? I’m told GONE BABY GONE is surprisingly good, might have to go see that after all. After all the RENDITION/30 DAYS conversation Friday, I ended up seeing neither. Just added my brother’s movie blog to my link...

Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind

I’m in the mood for a movie tonight, just not entirely sure which one. At the moment, I find myself trying to decide between 30 DAYS OF NIGHT and RENDITION…..which is sort of like asking yourself “Do I want steak for dinner or a baloney sandwich?” Now, I’m not trying to say that one of...

Fight Test – CHARLIE WILSON’S WAR Trailer

This past weekend, I finally got around to watching the new special edition DVD of THE GRADUATE. It’s a rather good package that I highly recommend (pretty cheap too), and on the whole I find that the film has aged really well.  Matter of fact, i find that it makes a swell double feature when...

Pictures of You

I was thinking long and hard about this week’s top five, and found myself staring out my apartment window while doing so. I noticed a building a few blocks over from me, that has an entire wall painted up as a movie poster. In three years of living here, that wall has never not had...

Once upon a time, Hollywood used to make tense dramas for grown-ups. Once in a while, it remembers how to do that.

File Under ‘Favorites’: EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED

I bought thirteen tickets for friends and family to go to an amazing concert this week – the sort of concert that leaves you hoarse, sore, and sweaty. As the show was drawing to a close, I couldn’t help but think back to what brought me there in the first place, since the band I...

Fix You

Y’know, I often consider myself somewhat tech savvy. The kinda guy who can troubleshoot or problem solve all sorts of electronic gizmos and gadgets. Sorta like someone who should be in Chuck’s Nerd Heard. However, anytime I find myself getting too cocky in my non-existent tech wizardry, something comes along to school my ass. Yesterday...

Turn the Page

Here’s a tip – when you see a movie based on a book, don’t turn around and read the book right away. It’s no damned fun. Whether the book is better, or the movie is better, faithful to a tee or a complete bastardization…most of the usual enjoyment you get out of the book is...
