• Movie Review: The Kingdom

    The Kingdom is one of those movies that require a hush as the credits roll. No conversations. No cheap comments about how good the movie was. Just silent contemplation. The value of life. How quickly it dissipates. How easily a new generation of hate grows to replace the old. Just a few, simple words, spoken […]

  • Movie Review: Knocked Up

    Before the wife fell asleep Friday night, we rented Knocked Up from Family Video (oh, the irony) and gave it a whirl. I'd been warned by a MySpace friend about the vulgar content, but was also told that it was very funny and entertaining if one can get beyond the vulgarity.  Let's evaluate the pros […]

  • Movie Review: The Invisible

    You'll have to bear with me. I don't go to theaters often. This film, The Invisible, is out on DVD already, so many of you have already seen it. The film stars Justin Chatwin and Margarita Levieva. I was drawn in and intrigued by the movie trailer some time ago. My pregnant wife surprisingly picked […]

  • Mel Gibson is a Film Making Genius

    For the most part I had a relaxing Saturday – not a lot to do. Just some chores. The kids are at the age were they are content playing video games and skateboarding outside. My wife was at work today, which gave me the opportunity to watch a movie that I bought last night in […]

  • Bridge to Terabithia

    * don’t read this if you haven’t seen the movie yet – I don’t want to ruin it for you. Wow… I just got home from the dollar movie. Bridge to Terabithia was NOT what I expected, but it was powerful. Boy (Jess) meets new girl (Leslie) in school. New girl has a vivid imagination […]

  • Hollywood Follows Comic Book Trends

    Look at the difference between 1950s and ’60s comic books and those drawn and written in the 1990s. Older comic books were more about developing story lines, while newer books even of the same title have become more and more about sensationalistic artwork. Look at Spiderman of the ’60s versus Spiderman of the ’90s. Did […]

  • Top Ten Hollywood Actors

    No offense to women, but choosing the Top Ten actors is much more difficult than actresses. There are easily 20-30 men who qualify for consideration. As you can tell by my list of actresses, my Top Ten has nothing to do with who’s the sexiest, hottest attraction in Hollywood. I judge by acting talent and […]

  • Top Ten Hollywood Actresses

    It wasn’t easy to narrow down my list of best actresses, but since it must be done for the sake of a Top Ten, here they are, from least to best: #10 Kate Hudson – best films with Kate Hudson include How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Raising Helen, Almost Famous, and The […]

  • Useless Mel Gibson Antisemitic Controversies

    Is anybody really enraged by the alleged Mel Gibson controversy? Let us understand a couple basic principles from the beginning: 1) it is never justified or proper to practice anti-semitism; 2) you cannot believe everything you hear and read out of Hollywood. I’m tired of hearing about the outrage over Mel Gibson’s behavior. Don’t believe […]

  • Library Fees are Evil

    Can someone please explain to me the purpose of library fees? The public library is still supported by tax dollars, right? Then why am I funding the DVD department of my local library? Obviously, some smartass out there is responding with, because you didn’t turn your stuff in on time, duh. Thank you for that […]
