M*A*S*Hseen @ Landmark Loews Jersey Theater, Jersey City, NJ5.3.13I've known about Robert Altman for a long time, but I never really studied him or his films in any great depth. I've seen M*A*S*H and The Player a bunch of times, but sadly, I've yet to see Nashville. One of these days... Still, I always figured I knew what defined his films: huge, ensemble casts, lots of actorly improvisation, and overlapping dialogue. It wasn't until I saw M*A*S*H on the big screen for the first time earlier this month, ... read more »
All Quiet on the Western Frontseen @ Landmark Loews Jersey Theater, Jersey City, NJ4.27.13I liked All Quiet on the Western Front well enough, but something about it bugged me, and the more I think about it, the more it bothers me. I'll get to it in a minute.Okay, so this is a war movie, right? And it's fairly ahead of its time too. At first, all I noticed were the usual war film cliches: boot camp, the heartless, hard-ass drill sergeant, being sent to the front lines, the rookies meeting the veterans, th... read more »

Mr. Deeds Goes to Townseen @ Landmark Loews Jersey Theater, Jersey City, NJ3.16.13And now, five things I might do if I inherited $20 million, after paying off bills and taking care of my family, of course:1. Travel. Duh. I was hanging out with Andi recently and at one point she was describing some more aspects of her trip to Spain to take part in the Camino walk and she said that it's not all that expensive. The more I think about it, the more appealing it sounds to me, and I think I'd like to give it a ... read more »

First performed at the Hampstead Theatre, London, in August 1976, this two act play is another of Frayn’s comedies. However, I’m at a loss to know for certain what it’s really about.
Set in Cuba (though the stage is a blank arena with stepped surfaces, chairs and a back-projection screen to receive the images of the sky that give the play its name) the action revolves around a trio of writers who are there to report on the state of the island a short time after Castro’s takeover. As a teenager during t... read more »
One Two Threeseen @ Landmark Loews Jersey theater, Jersey City, NJ2.23.13When I still drunk soda on a regular basis, I was a Pepsi drinker. As a kid, drinking soda went hand in hand with redeeming the empty bottles for cash. There was a tiny bodega a couple of blocks from our house that accepted empty bottles, and my parents places the responsibility burden of redeeming them on me. While it was always great to get free money, especially when you're young, I hated having to be the one to gather all the bo... read more »
Die Band um Gavin Rossdale hatte ihre großen Hits in den 90ern. Der gebürtige Brite gründete Bush mit Gitarrist Nigel Pulsford in Shepherds Bush in London. Bassist Dave Parsons und Drummer Robin Goodridge machten das Line-Up komplett. Den größten Erfolg feierte man zunächst als billiger Nirvana-Abklatsch belächelt in den USA. Als Band kann man auf Hits wie

First performed at the Haymarket Theatre in London, on 12thMay 1960, this dramatic depiction of the life of T.E Lawrence, Lawrence of Arabia, uses insight, perception and historical events in an attempt to convey something of the reality of this enigmatic man. Of course, most readers will have seen or at least heard of the slightly later David Lean film, Lawrence of Arabia, written by Robert Bolt and Michael Wilson and employing Lawrence’s own writings. The two productions are very different, of course.

First performed at the Royal Court Theatre on 4thDecember 1972, this play was published a year later. The copy I have was issued by the publishers as a review copy (the publisher’s slip is still loose within the pages), but not to me. No, I picked it up in a second hand book shop some years later.
That the play’s first performance took place in such an august location says a great deal about the theatrical world’s respect for the playwright at the time. Of course, his ‘Look Back in Anger’ had deservedl... read more »
