I went to see The Help yesterday, the day it premiered in London. I imagine there is little point in saying this, but for those who have not seen it, or not heard of it (well, there might be a few!), it’s a comedy drama set in the segregated South of the sixties, based on Kathyrn Stockett’s novel of the same name.
It’s my kind of movie, one that deals with serious and interesting themes in an adult way, one that has a serious and interesting story to tell, one that’s so much more a shallow fest of special effects or tiresome thrills. I would have gone to see it at some point though perhaps... Read More
he perils of a celebrity life...
You may not be familiar with the name,Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, or the scandal that ended his movie career; but read closely and I'm sure you'll discover a familiar tale.
Arbuckle was born in Smith Center, Kansas on March 24, 1887. He was one of nine children. Because of his beautiful singing voice, his mother encouraged him at an early age to pursue work in theater. Arbuckle joined the vaudvile circuit in 1906, joining the Pantages Theatre Group and touring all over the country. But it was his silent screen career that would earn him fame and fortune....

Paranormal Activity 3 a movie about 2 sisters trying to make sense of supernatural events that they experienced as children turned "the heads" of U.S. box office sales, reversing its more than 2-month slump by doing massive ticket sales of $26.2 million opening day.
Paranormal Activity 3 scored the best single-day opening since Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 back in July which did $90.1 million opening day.
The key for the box office will be for Paranormal Activity 3 not to drop like an anchor after its first few... Read More
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...
