"...alligators have the right idea. They eat their young."Newtown Literary's Queens Writes Weekend went well for me. Friday night was the author reading at Astoria Bookshop. I was one of five featured authors, and once I got past my trepidation over reading a work of mine in public, I got through it okay. The host said he liked my speaking voice!I was also the only non-poet. In fact, this one woman preceded her reading with a tongue-in-cheek rant about this article in The Washington Post that asserted th...

New release roundup for April '15

content discovered on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 in science fiction

- Ex Machina. Tony Stark-like billionaire engineer creates robotic intelligence that he recruits a low-level tech employee of his to determine how lifelike it is. I was able to guess at some of the plot twists in this directing debut from screenwriter Alex Garland, but overall, it wasn't bad. Differs from Her in that the hand of the creator plays a central role in the story and acts as a wedge between the protagonist and the AI character. Visual effects are spectacular, making actress Alicia Vikander loo...

They Drive By Night

content discovered on Friday, April 24, 2015 in classic cinema, drama, movie makers, movie stars

They Drive By Nightseen on TV @ TCM4.20.15It was said that Ida Lupino referred to herself as the poor man's Bette Davis (even though they were both women, duh!). After seeing her in They Drive By Night, I can understand why. The movie is about the hard lives of truckers, in particular two brothers, George Raft and Humphrey Bogart, who dream of making it in the business. Lupino plays the wife of a trucking owner who has the hots for Raft, but he won't mess around with the wife of a friend. Besides, he's a...

James Dean

content discovered on Wednesday, April 22, 2015 in acting, movie stars, pop culture

Earlier this month, I came across this post, which reproduces the eulogy given for James Dean in his hometown of Fairmount, Indiana in 1955. It provided me with a completely different perspective of the actor who died so horribly young. I knew he had to have come from somewhere, but I didn't know he was raised in a small Midwestern town, and from the sound of it, they were extremely proud of their favorite son, whom they knew better than anyone else:...we find it hard to be charitable with publicity hung...

What if more movie theaters were non-profit?

The caretakers of the Loew's Jersey Theater think it hasa future as a multimedia, non-profit venue.Weeks ago, the Center Cinema theater in Sunnyside closed down. It wasn't the greatest of movie theaters, and I have no fond memories of it from my childhood (or my adulthood, for that matter), but it was local, a neighborhood theater still trying to compete against the AMCs and Regals of the world, and it was part of a number of theaters in Queens and Nassau County over the past five years that I've seen bi...

You may recall a few months ago that a short story I wrote, "Airplanes," was published by the Queens lit zine Newtown Literary (you can still buy a copy here).

This year it kicks off with a live reading from published NL authors at Astoria Bookshop, and guess who's been inv...

The Adventures of Robin Hood

content discovered on Wednesday, April 08, 2015 in action adventure, classic cinema, movie stars, technology

The Adventures of Robin Hoodseen on TV @ TCM4.7.15There's something about Old Hollywood movies shot in Technicolor, aside from the obvious fact of them being in color in a black-and-white medium. The coloring process gives those movies a heightened sense of realism, but they tend to look realer than reality, if that makes any sense. The colors pop in a way that they usually don't in most modern color movies, and the effect is startling, to say the least. I suspect it was part of the effort to make movies...
