2015 Top 10

content discovered on Friday, February 12, 2016 in lists and compilations, movie makers, movie stars

Before I begin, let me address the elephant in the room.The Revenant is not on this list. I didn't see it and I don't plan to anytime soon. Perhaps you think this makes my list illegitimate somehow, given all the acclaim this movie has received, and in a way, I can't say I blame you if you did think so.There's something you gotta remember about me and this blog, though: I am not a professional reviewer. I don't aspire to be one. I make conscious choices as to which new releases to see, and I pay to see t...

Hail, Caesar!

Hail, Caesar!seen @ Alamo Drafthouse, Yonkers, NYWatching a movie about the making of movies is a little like seeing how hot dogs are made. You may enjoy them, but witnessing the process that goes into how they're made has the potential to take away some of the enjoyment. Sometimes you just wanna surrender yourself to the magic spell they weave while you're watching them. Do you really need to know how Buster Keaton set up that shot where the wall falls on him but he stands where he won't get hurt to app...

Creed

Creedseen @ Cinemart Fiveplex, Forest Hills, QueensWhen Creed first began doing gigs around their hometown of Tallahassee, Florida, grunge rock had started to become played out. They had to settle for playing in family restaurants. They played mostly cover songs, but all the while they were writing original material for what would eventually become their 1997 debut record My Own Prison, which they initially released on their own Blue Collar Records label. According to manager Jeff Hanson, fourteen labels...

I still miss John Candy

content discovered on Wednesday, February 03, 2016 in blog a thons, comedy, movie stars, television

The 2016 O Canada Blogathon is an event devoted to Canadian actors and films, hosted by Speakeasy and Silver Screenings. For a list of participating bloggers, visit the link at Speakeasy. I remember being dragged to see Uncle Buck when it first came out. I forget which group of friends I was with; it was probably my high school friends. I have absolutely no idea why I didn't think I would like what was a relatively harmless comedy. My movie tastes were still vague and unformed back then. On the other h...

The link who fell to Earth

content discovered on Monday, February 01, 2016 in bloggers and critics, favorite theaters, movie makers, movie stars, race, rip, science fiction, ziegfield theatre

Unfortunately, I don't have any interesting stories related to the music of David Bowie. I never saw him in concert, nor did he inspire me to explore my sexuality or anything along those lines. Like many people, I simply dug his music, and I'm really sad to see him departed from this life. As an actor - and he had been one almost as long as he had been a singer - he had an eclectic range of roles, as you would expect from one who took on roles in his musical performances: Pontius Pilate in The Last Tempt...

Anomalisa

content discovered on Friday, January 29, 2016 in animation, filmmaking techniques, romance, sociology and politics

Anomalisaseen @ Kew Gardens Cinemas, Kew Gardens, QueensIn 1970, Professor Masahiro Mori, an expert in the field of robotics, theorized that as robots start to look more like humans, they'll become easier to empathize with. If one were to chart this progression on a graph, in which the x-axis represents human likeness and the y-axis equals familiarity, the points on the graph would form an ascending line. At a certain point, however, as the theory goes, a robot can look too human, and empathy quickly cha...

Room (2015)

content discovered on Friday, January 22, 2016 in beyond nyc, drama, friends, urban living

Room (2015)seen @ Kew Gardens Cinemas, Kew Gardens, QueensWhen I spent a little over a year in Columbus, Ohio, I lived in a tiny apartment in a rundown neighborhood with my friend Max. I must have met him sometime in the late 90s, when I was self-publishing comics and touring all over the country. Dude's a self-taught cartoonist.I can't give you a sense of how small our place was based on words alone. It's not like I cared enough to try and measure it for myself, so you'll have to take my word for it whe...

The File on Thelma Jordon

content discovered on Wednesday, January 20, 2016 in blog a thons, classic cinema, crime drama, movie stars

The Remembering Barbara Stanwyck Blogathon is exactly what it says on the tin, hosted by In the Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood. For a complete list of participating blogs, visit the link at the host site.The File on Thelma Jordon(AKA Thelma Jordon)YouTube viewingIt took me awhile to really get into The File on Thelma Jordon. For one thing, I was expecting a noir and it started out as a romance - and with a drunk man who was not that great looking to begin with. I would've thought Barbara Stanwyck had...

Five ways to tell a SF/F story without a bad guy

content discovered on Friday, January 15, 2016 in big ideas, fantasy, lists and compilations, science fiction

Yes, I'm gonna bitch about The Force Awakens again, but only to make a bigger point. One of the biggest disappointments of the film for me was Adam Driver's character, Kylo Ren. As a villain, he didn't seem imposing and powerful enough to carry the film the way Darth Vader originally did in A New Hope, and because he came across like a third-rate Vader clone, his shtick felt old.(Just as an aside: Jen from my writing group agreed with me that TFA was a ripoff ofA New Hope. She was pretty pleased that som...

Oscar 2015: The nominees

For Best Picture:The Big ShortBridge of SpiesBrooklynMad Max: Fury RoadThe MartianThe RevenantRoomSpotlightThe rest.Last year, as you know, was devoted to classic movies around these parts, and as part of my immersion into this field (though, in hindsight, I doubt this was all that necessary), I chose to sit out the Oscar race. As a result, many more movies flew under my radar this year than usual.So seeing this year's Best Picture nominees comes as a pretty big surprise for once. I knew Bridge of Spies ...
