I Origins

I recently read Biocentrism, by Dr. Robert Lanza with Bob Berman, but this is not a book review – it is a film review. So why do I start off mentioning this book? Because both the book and the film walk a tight-rope between main stream “science” and “spirituality”. I use the quotations because these […]

The Rover

  I will start by quoting a fellow audience member at the completion of The Rover at a screening yesterday: “I just lost two hours of my life.” And now I want to state emphatically: I couldn’t disagree more. The Rover doesn’t give the viewer a lot up front. If you don’t read about it […]

For the love of a good romantic film

He’s a uniquely talented but somewhat ostracized member of society who appreciates only the finest food, music and the arts. She’s a formerly highly valued employee of a large scale organization seeking to maintain her moral balance and prestige after a disagreement with a coworker leads to a challenging confrontation with her superiors. Previously, they […]

Beyond The Black Rainbow is beyond trippy!

I had Beyond the Black Rainbow on my Netflix “My List” for a long time. Whenever I would scroll thru my list my reaction to the description given on Netflix would be something like “Why did I put this movie on my list? Oh yeah, looked like a nice blend of paranormal, psychological thriller with […]

Sountrack Competition Round 2

The results of the first competition are in: In the biggest smackdown of the race to be the best soundtrack ever, The Matrix decimated Transformers, taking 88% of the vote. Made scrap metal out of the big robots! In the battle of the men-with-Daddy-issues (well, not really, but play along), The Tree of Life beat […]

Sountrack Competition polls closing next week

The polls will close next Thursday at midnight (Wednesday night 12:00 New York City time). Thereafter will commence round 2 – where soundtracks from various genres will go toe to toe to determine the best sound track of all time. Or it’s just another place online to express your opinion. Whatever. Go vote.

Trance

Okay, why didn’t anyone tell me about Trance? How come I didn’t hear about this movie until I happened to be … uh, researching Rosario Dawson (researching?, yeah researching… sure researching her, uh… career to date… for a project I’m working on. Yeah, that’s it) and came across this film. Luckily, I was able to […]

Beyond the Pines and other delightful tunes

I’ve been far too busy, and far too disinterested, to post anything in quite a while, but I must now share with you, dear readers, my latest discoveries. I’ll speak chiefly at this time of two films, married together (or more correctly distantly related) by a common theme of standing up to corrupt coworkers. The […]

Soundtrack Competition Part I

Well it seems hardly anyone gives a damn about this, but here goes anyway. I promised a poll/competition to find the greatest movie soundtrack of them all, and, while I’m sure we won’t actually find that here today, it may be fun to do some comparisons. First match-ups are as follows: If your favorite got […]

On the Importance of Music

I have stated on many occasions why I feel music in a film is as important as the visuals, if not more so: you can close your eyes… Nothing brings a story into our hearts like the right music. So I’m going to propose a little fun this month: I’m going to write a bit […]
