It's safe to say that on an average day, you can observe at least five people working on a screenplay in or around West Hollywood without even trying. Usually, they are bent over a steaming mug of Joe, are clutching a highlighter like there is no tomorrow and are grimacing at the result of their 2oth re-write.
Surprisingly, even with all these struggling writers clamoring for a piece of the marquee, 2007 is slated to be the "Year of the Sequel".
You may be thinking, â€œWait, wasn't 2006 chock full of sequels too?"
Sure, we had "Pirates of the Caribbean 2", "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning",... Read More
At four oâ€™clock in the afternoon, it was 30 Fahrenheit and my FiancÃ© and I were looking for somewhere warm to sit, drink some wine and conduct our personal Scrabble tournament. We set our sights on the quaint cottage-cum-cafÃ© that weâ€™d noticed earlier on the main street in town. As we weaved through the tall Pines and Cedars, leaving our foot prints in the perfectly white and fluffy snow, Hennessey â€“ our rental cabin ownerâ€™s adorable mutt - trailing us with her ball, we spotted the chimney smoke of CafÃ© Aroma, promising a roaring log fire; the perfect setting for a serious Scrabble...

While traditional medias are busy covering topics as significant as whether Miss USA will have to give her title back, or the feud between Donald Trump and Rosie O'Donnell (her "you went bankrupt", him "you're fat and ugly"), talented individuals are quietly working in the shadow and influence the lives of millions. Gilad Benari is one of them.

This isn't a good film, this is a great film. When you drop your bum into that theater seat, you had better buckle up because you are about go on a visual ride of the likes you will never find at any amusement park.
The film is first a story of mans values, or lack of them. Blood diamonds or Conflict diamonds, call them what you wish. Diamonds mined at the expense of human lives and misery. A good story that seems to scream the word "reality". You can be assured that no representative of the diamond cartel, De Beers is likely to be quoted, "Yes, this film accurately portrays the way we do business,... Read More
After years of fighting, bickering, betting, screaming, crying and howling, the debate is finally over. There will no longer be any need for anyone to distort the truth. Liberals and conservatives alike can put their differences on the subject to rest. Once the evidence has been publicized, even Al Gore will have to concede that this debate must end and that all discussions will have to be put to bed.
What in the hell are you babbling about?
This is the single most important debate of our lifetime and it has to be stopped. The lie has to be debunked and the truth must be exposed. The lie... Read More
Could Robert De Niro be the next Clint Eastwood? Both were workhorse actors for most of their careers, but Eastwood later in life stepped behind the camera and became known more as a prolific director. He has two films this year in awards contention (â€œFlags of Our Fathersâ€ and â€œLetters from Iwo Jimaâ€) and already has the Oscars to prove it. If â€œThe Good Shepherdâ€ is any indication, then De Niro might not be too far behind.
His second directorial effort following â€œA Bronx Taleâ€ in 1993 is an ambitious project about the beginning of the Central Intelligence Agency and the man chosen... Read More
