Watching the Golden Globes last night made me think about the different ways people choose to present themselves. And the big question is: “Why do Americans have to be so cheesy”? What is it with the badly acted humble crumble behaviour. The obvious insincerity and vanity. The only and I repeat the only exceptions among the award winning actors were Meryl Streep and Eddie Murphy who seemed to have the self respect not to portray them self's like fools. How come that the foreign actors seem capable to give good acceptance speeches? Both Huge Laurie and Jeromy Irons managed to be funny,... Read More

I have sort of a secret. It’s a DVD case in the likeness of a ladybeetle that used to be hidden at the very back of the closet. Inside this DVD case is a collection of deeply embarrassing movies. Unable to balance their perception of me with the confusing, new, seemingly out-of-character information they’ve discovered, most acquaintances recoil in horror once they discover my secret. I actually read the entire, silent progression on their faces, from registration of what is going on, to shock, to deep and probing analysis – a desperate search for some kind of meaning – to pity, to dismissal...

Everything to some people, which makes it difficult for couples facing marriage to know exactly what to do. Of course, most people nowadays still do what tradition dictates. The wife takes the husband’s last name. But for some, the decision isn’t so easy. Taking the husbands last name without question reminisces of how marriages occurred in the older days. The woman became the man’s property, and left behind her family’s name for her husband’s. More recently, couples, and especially women, are not so easily satisfied with the wife taking the husband’s name. Some women simply... Read More
Dear Editor, I am a strong believer in the First Amendment right which guarantees all individuals "freedom of speech". It is one of the basic tenets of which this country was birthed. However, there must be a point where responsible people draw a line in the sand. To say I am disappointed in the editorial staff of this newspaper would be a massive understatement, at the very least! I have emailed your circulation department a request, on my behalf, for an immediate refund in full for any remaining time left on my subscription. There will be no more "BrooWaha" with this readers morning coffee... Read More

Australia day, celebrated on January 26th is fast approaching and all around Los Angeles, ‘G’day L.A.’ events are in motion. Australia Day commemorates the landing of the First Fleet in Sydney Cove in 1788 and is our official, national day - despite continuing to be shrouded with controversy. L.A. hosts ‘Australia Week’ from the 11th to the 20th of January, in the lead up to the big day. It showcases all things Australian from food, wine, film, arts, lifestyle, trade and investment to indigenous culture and tourism. Events are scattered across the city (and country), with Bristol Farms... Read More
Insult or intellectualize as you wish, the best comedy you’re probably not watching is now a Big Dirty movie and currently in its 6th season on Showcase TV in Canada. What began independently in 1991 as writer/director Mike Clattenburg’s black & white faux-documentary on a couple of Canadian trailer park pet hitmen has grown, matured, and cured into a #1 comedy TV series and a Hollywood-influenced feature, minus the U.S. distributor. Respect is earned, and while I admit to being the first in line to cross-check a Canuck, steal their Loonies and drink their Molson Ice; I mighta had it wrong... Read More
Going into this movie, I had no idea how much of the director's work I had already seen. His name is Guillermo del Toro and, in his relatively sparse career, he has made several notable films including Mimic, The Devil's Backbone, Blade II, and Hellboy. Clearly, "notable" does not always mean "good," but such a memorable CV is impressive nonetheless. In fact, those are the only films he has made in the past 10 years and I'm willing to bet you've all heard of at least three of them. Not a bad feat for a foreign-born-and-raised director who was virtually unknown before then. Whether or not you've... Read More
