My favorite kind of movie is the kind where lots of things blow up and bullets fly every which way. The hero is a total badass, and while he is not invincible, he is pretty much unstoppable. In the end, the body count is through the roof, shit's on fire, and the hero walks away with minimal injuries. This, my friends, is an action-movie. Not one of those modern ones either, the ones full of celebrities and with every genre of movie crammed in, in an effort to grab the largest audience possible. No, this is from the '80's, back when violence, although not nearly as graphic as it is today, was... Read More
THE SOCIAL NETWORK
Directed by David Fincher
Produced by Scott Rudin, Kevin Spacey and Michael DeLuca
Screenplay by Aaron Sorkin
Based on the book “The Accidental Billionaires” by Ben Mezrich
There’s a very, very old saying that money changes you. I don’t agree with that. I think money just makes you more of whatever it is you already are. So if you’re a sweet, wonderful, generous, giving person before you fall into a haystack of money, after you do so you simply become sweeter, more wonderful, generous and giving. On the opposing appendage, if you... Read More
WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS
20th Century Fox
Directed by Oliver Stone
Produced by Edward R. Pressman and Eric Kopeloff
Screenplay by Allan Loeb and Stephen Schiff
Curious thing about WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS. The whole movie is about money. People in this movie talk about it constantly, obsess over it, worship it, and revere it. But never once in the movie do we actually see anybody handling money or using it to purchase anything except for one important scene. And I’m inclined to think that Oliver Stone excluded the appearance... Read More
Now, before you go have a bird and laugh me off the site, just hear me out...Well, after I tell you what I thought of the latest Bond motion picture, Casino Royale, that is...
This motion picture, directed by Martin Campbell (Goldeneye) created a dichotomy in my family and in my movie-going community: one side was utterly disappointed, even disgusted, and the other side surprisingly impressed. For once, I sided with the critics—many who extolled this latest of Bond films for its refreshing candor, dark edge and gritty realism. I say, for once, because, more often than not, I have taken...

NOTE: This isn’t a movie for kids.
This is possibly a movie for those who know someone living with depression. Since I haven’t seen it yet, I can’t know the movie’s full content. I don’t like hearing the Lord’s name taken in vain in the music. My hope is that the movie clip’s message is just a whisper of what we may see in the film about the reality we face trying to understand the world around us when you’re just a teen.
It’s not any easier dealing with depression at any age. But in the clip, the one line that I think is strongest comes from the teen’s friend. The teen... Read More
Watching a movie from another country is often a fascinating experience. Depending on how much you know of the country, it can also be confusing at times. There is definitely a cultural barrier and, like reading a work of literature that was originally written in a different language, some things will be lost in translation. Regardless, the experience of immersing oneself in another culture, even if only through film, is something we should all do on a regular basis. Why not try it out by sitting down and enjoying the movie Red Cliff?
Directed by John Woo, the genius behind a guy... Read More
Do you believe in the collective conscious? How about coincidence? What about fate? I find so often that events, occurrences, observations happen around me as though out of design, as if they are connected like the gossamer web of a spider. For instance, when I'm doing research for a book on a particular subject, certain opportunities and events present themselves as if conspiring in favor of that subject, at which point I usually have a eureka moment of enlightenment. Part of that is, of course, because I'm more open to it, more receptive, unwittingly looking. But not all...What does this... Read More
