It’s the End of The World As We Know It…

Yikes – gotta love technical difficulties. Looks like I can make a mess of HTML with the best of them! If you didn’t get a chance yesterday, take a peek back at the top five. As for today’s trailer, thought I’d mention that I’m not always about the serious, profound, grown-up cinema. Sometimes, I just...

Scared

When you start flipping channels and find an endless array of horror movies on TV you can tell that Halloween is coming. When I was a kid it was a time to hike a few blocks toward the rich neighbourhood and hope to score a few full-sized chocolate bars. As I got older, it became...

Hard to Handle

Confession: I’m finding it hard to concentrate on movies lately. I’m a Red Sox fan, so it feels like every spare moment is spent wondering if I might be witness to another World Series championship. Not only that, but game nights are automatic ‘don’t make plans’. So while there are easily half a dozen films...

Train in Vain

I’ll bet you thought I was finished rambling about THE DARJEELING LIMITED. Think again. The movie, which I think is the greatest movie about brothers on a train of all time, goes into a wider release this week. That part is not news. What is interesting though, is the fact that HOTEL CHEVALIER will now...

Black Gold – THERE WILL BE BLOOD Trailer

Last week, watching THE GRADUATE got me wondering about Mike Nicolls. This week, watching IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER for the first time in ages got me thinking about Daniel Day-Lewis. The guy is notorious for taking his sweet time between movies, and only taking parts he really likes…usually in really good movies. It’s...

Come Out and Play

So last Friday, author J.K. Rowling outed one of her Harry Potter characters. In case you didn’t hear about it, turns out Dumbledore is gay. Rowling said she was reluctant to draw attention to his sexual preference for fear of how readers might react. When I read this news, I started feeling like she should...

Monday Monday

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...
