There is one compelling reason to see The Iron Lady– Meryl Streep’s performance as Margaret Thatcher. This is not acting; it’s almost as if an uncanny doppelganger has come to life, a performance which seems to clone the real-life Thatcher; her speech patterns, her mannerisms, her movements, her gestures; a fine observation of the finest details. This really is iron. The movie itself, though, is a little more like wood.

I recently scanned the movie section, and being the red-blooded guy that I am, two recent releases advertising some adrenaline-filled action caught my eye causing me to walk inside the darkened rooms of the silver screen. I've seen both of these movies within the past few days and thought I'd share some of my insights on both before you pluck down some of your had-earned dollar bills. Mission Impossible-Ghost Protocol: This is the fourth installment of the mega-successful thriller which actor, Tom Cruise, has made famous again by resurrecting the theme of the TV series from decades...

Many years ago, a film called Cinema Paradiso employed a very simple device to help the viewer burrow deep into the psyche of both film, and into our personal experience of this world-changing method for storytelling. By the simple virtue of a misguided priest attempting to defend the very foundations of virtue, in his spiritually misguided desire to protect people from the truth of their own passions, we were allowed to see how one passion bears witness to and helps inform and educate on all passions. By removing the kisses, the films shown in this small Italian village always left the viewers... Read More
