Keep Fishin’

I’m very excited this week that Wes Anderson’s THE DARJEELING LIMITED hits Toronto theatres on Friday. I was equally excited this Friday that just past, with news that Wes Anderson’s ten minute prologue to the film, HOTEL CHEVALIER, was available online. Much to my dismay, it was only available through iTunes USA. Well now, a...

File Under ‘Favorites’ : PULP FICTION

A friend showed me a list of movies they wanted to see – mostly on DVD’s. After looking at her list, I pointed out one or two that were amoung my all-time favorites. Inspired by this, I’m going to start writing a short bit about one favorite every week, always a film that is available...

The fact that this movie is...

King of Pain

A few days ago I was home sick from work. Often when I’m home on a sick day, I tend to grab a handful of DVD’s from my shelf and throw them on while I drift in and out of sleep. You’d think that I’d want stories to comfort me, make me smile, and ultimately...

Superhero

I thought I’d take a break from all this talk of provocative fall dramas, film festivals, and award nominations and let my geek flag fly. I got to see this trailer for the first time a few weeks back, but this is the first chance I’ve had to post it. If you ever gave Marvel...
