A horror movie, a horrible movie, and a horrible situation – July recap

Okay folks, the summer film watching days are in full swing and I managed to catch three films in the theater this month so far, which is pretty good for me lately. Free AC and lime coke from the fountain doesn’t hurt either! I mentioned the horror movie last post, so I won’t add much […]

Cloud Atlas

Finally got around to seeing Cloud Atlas last week and frankly, I’ve been speechless since or I would have posted sooner. The film is not without some flaws, but by golly the concept alone is breathtaking. The execution left my head spinning. I can see why this did not do well in theaters. We are […]

Jupiter, Queen of the planet

Ok folks, I’m back and I’m pissed. Again. I know it is award season – don’t bother me about that shit. Who cares? This post has nothing to do with the awards. Nor has it anything to do with any of the lousy movies I have watched, or tried to, recently, only to sink further […]

In defense of an idea

I’m a defender of Prometheus – I admit it. I also confess to you it is not easy, really. The film on its surface is a ludicrous mess. My attraction to Prometheus is largely due to my own “fill in the blanks, ignore that, and that, that is really this, etc etc etc” filter through […]

Capricorn One won me over

  Capricorn One is everything I love about seventies movies. Great story, real feel acting, that sunny southwest gritty look… and plane chases! (Car chases are so boring yet so ubiquitous, but who can say with an honest heart they don’t appreciate a good plane chase in a film?) Characters that are moving and funny […]

Joe’s Tunes

Saw Joe recently. Loved it. But, more than just the great look and the drama of the story, listen to this one! Talk about underrated soundtracks – this one is phenomenal.  Whether you’ve seen Joe or not, give it (another) go while it’s streaming on Netflix – and listen to it! Love these:
