My 2010 Film Report

Some of you may remember that last February I tallied up all the movies I saw in the theater in 2009 and was surprised by how many films I had see in the theater. Well, its that time again, so I took a look at all the movies that came out in 2010 and this […]

Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May

To The Virgins, To Make Much Of Time GATHER ye rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying: And this same flower that smiles to-day To-morrow will be dying. — Robert Herrick, 1600s, I watched Dead Poet Society the other afternoon while I was working, and it was very nostalgic for me. The film […]

I Met The Walrus

In 1969, a 14-year-old boy snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room with a tape recorder and convinced him to share his thoughts about peace, music, and life. Thirty-nine years later, a small portion of that priceless 40-minute recording of Lennon was brought to life through James Braithwaite’s animation, in a short called I Met The […]

The Randy Quaid crazy train has arrived in Canada, where he and his wife have requested refugee status to escape the clutches of a “Hollywood Star Whacker.” The Quaids believe they are being targeted by those that have already killed 8 of their friends including Heath Ledger and David Carradine.

Relish the journey

That’s you, drops of water. And you’re on top of the mountain. A success. But one day you start sliding down the mountain and you think, “Wait a minute. I’m a mountain top water drop. I don’t belong down in this valley, in this river, in this low dark ocean with all these drops of […]

Dinner with Schmucks, Machete, and The Town

Dinner with Schmucks I saw this movie months ago, but just wasn’t sure what to say about it. It was just so, so. I would be curious to see the original French film this was based on, I am guessing it would be a different humor all together. I had high expectations and it did […]

James Franco is a busy and bizarre man

I just read a crazy article about James Franco, the actor, artist, student, etc. Here is the “busy” part, I couldn’t believe his ridiculous academic ambitions while still working on both tv and movies: As soon as Franco finished at UCLA (graduating in just 2 years), he moved to New York and enrolled in four […]

Damon + Eastwood + The Dead = Hereafter

I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix

After a year of bizarre behavior following his retirement from moviemaking, the long-rumored film “I’m Sill Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix” is premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival tomorrow. I am dying to hear the reviews of Casey Affleck’s directorial debut. Here is a trailer: Maybe we will finally have the answer […]
