Whiplashseen @ Lincoln Plaza Cinema, New York NY10.12.14I was thirteen years old when I entered high school and took the freshman drawing class. I majored in art, you see, and it was my specialized course of study throughout high school. The teacher I had, to quote the Eagles, had a nasty reputation as a cruel dude. He was this middle-aged sourpuss of an instructor whom everyone dreaded. He was acerbic, bitterly sarcastic and merciless. In his class, everything had to be done his way if you expected any ...

Gone Girlseen @ Jamaica Multiplex Cinemas, Jamaica NY10.7.14 SPOILERS Can't talk about this movie without them. Sorry.In the old war-of-the-sexes comedy Adam's Rib, Katharine Hepburn's lawyer character gets a jury to acquit a woman who shot her husband in a crime of passion after discovering him with another woman. She does it out of a conviction that if men can get away with this sort of thing, then so can women, and that they should be treated just as equally as men in a case like this. Spencer Tracy...

The unexpected virtue of linkage

content discovered on Wednesday, October 01, 2014 in bloggers and critics, education, movie industry, silent films, world events, writing

So there's this local literary magazine called Newtown Literary. It's still relatively new, but it's already built a bit of a rep for attracting Queens writers for short stories and poetry. The theme for their next issue is sci-fi/fantasy.Guess who's gonna be in it.Yep! I had had my eye on getting in the mag before, possibly by submitting a piece from WSW, but they only take original, unpublished work (a post on a blog counts as being published), so what I did was, I crafted a short story loosely inspire...

Singin' in the Rain

Singin' in the Rain seen @ Landmark Loew's Jersey Theater, Jersey City, NJ 9.27.14And now, five things I thought about while watching Singin' in the Rain:1. There's just something about musicals. When they're done right, that is. I don't seek them out, most of the time. It's not like I'm crazy for them or anything, but the best of them have a way of making you just feel good about life, as silly as that may sound. And while there are modern musicals that I adore, such as Dreamgirls and Hedwig and the A...

The Dropseen @ Kew Gardens Cinemas, Kew Gardens, Queens, NY9.23.14This post on the movie The Drop goes out to my pal Page, who, as I discovered last week, is a big Tom Hardy fan.[audience]"Hooooow biiiiig IS she?"[/audience]She's such a big Tom Hardy fan she sat through This Means War. The movie that made him swear off rom-coms forever. And can you blame him?Anyway, Page compared him to Paul Newman. She saw Locke earlier this year - really wish I saw that one - but she says it was boring. Also, she wants...

The Learning Tree

content discovered on Sunday, September 21, 2014 in drama, movie makers, race, sociology and politics

The Learning Treeseen on TV @ TCM9.18.14The Learning Tree was the first studio movie from a black director, Gordon Parks Sr., and it's not bad. It's kinda treacly in places, and the acting is what I would call earnest - meaning it feels like the actors, especially the two young male leads, are trying very hard to act instead of just be - but at the same time the film comes across as quite sincere and authentic as well.What I wanna talk about is the climax, which presented a fascinating moral dilemma, so,...

Play it again, Sam (and again and again)

content discovered on Thursday, September 18, 2014 in big ideas, fandom, lists and compilations, movie industry, sociology and politics, trends

...Going back to the same pop-culture fare for seconds, thirds, and thirtieths isn't so abnormal. If anything, my re-consumption habits are tame compared to some of you, who have havereadHarry Pottermore than 10 times,watchedFridaymore than 100 times, and spent more of your waking life withThe West Wingthan Aaron Sorkin. Musicologists estimate that for every hour of music-listening in the typical person's lifetime, 54 minutes are spent with songs we've already heard. Forget the next big thing. We're all ...
