Home Viewing – Thor: The Dark World (2013)

First things first - I admit, I have yet to see any of the Thor films at the cinema. No real explanation, it just is. When I do eventually catch them, however, I must admit that I quite enjoy them; Tony Stark sums up perfectly my sentiments in this clip: I think because of the world (that of … [Read More...]

Frank (2014), directed by Lenny Abrahamson

Boy, I love going to screenings where the filmmakers are present. They offer so much insight into what we watch. And I especially love it when like in this case, they reaffirm some of my thoughts of the film. Last week, I had the pleasure of catching Lenny Abrahamson's latest feature, Frank, … [Read More...]

Good Night, Betty

With sultry looks and a voice to match, Lauren Bacall epitomized the allure, glamor and resilience required of the 1940s film noir heroine/femme fatale. To the masses, she is probably most recognized for her professional and personal partnership with the legendary Humphrey Bogart, but that is only … [Read More...]

Fare Thee Well, Friend

When someone as well known and entertaining as Robin Williams passes away rather unexpectedly, the response is profound and immediate. Over the course of his vaunted career, he left audiences in fits of unbridled fits of laughter at his manic displays, but he could also reach moving, sentimental … [Read More...]

Shake Your Groove Thing @ the Cinema – Fave Music From the Movies

An integral part of any movie going experience is the music that accompanies the film's action. After the high of the wonderfully-tracked Guardians of the Galaxy, I started to think about some of my favorite soundtracks. I was certain that in digging around my site I would find a post/list. On the … [Read More...]

Did Guardians of the Galaxy Cure Me of My CBMFS*?

(* where CBMFS stands for Comic Book Movie Fatigue Syndrome) It came on so suddenly that I initially did not even recognize what was happening. Many good, some bad, but this spate of comic book movie adaptations started to feel like an assault on my cinematic sensibilities ultimately leading to a … [Read More...]

A (VERY) Late Mid Year Review of 2014 in Film

Honestly, when I started to think about this post, my initial thought was - Geez, this year has been rather "meh" film wise. The focus on the “event” film, or the 3D or just the blockbuster in general, left me feeling fatigued, so much so that I even missed the chance to see several of my favorite … [Read More...]

Boyhood Ellar Coltrane

Was “Boyhood” Worth the Wait?

I have been trying to see Boyhood for nearly half a year now, since its debut at the Sundance Film Festival. As it made its rounds on the festival circuit, opportunity after opportunity was missed, as I tried (in vain) to catch it somewhere … anywhere. After some time, I had therefore concluded that … [Read More...]
