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

Clint Eastwood has made film history in two genres: The Western and Police/Cop movies with him either starring or directing (or both) in some memorable roles. There’s Dirty Harry Callahan, of course. The Outlaw Josey Wales. The Man With No Name. Sheriff Walt Coogan from “Coogan’s Bluff” the movie that was the inspiration for TV’s “McCloud”
However, nobody remembers Clint Eastwood’s... Read More
Science Fiction is in its very nature a symbolic meditation on history itself—Frederic Jameson, critic
We call them “prawns”: bottom feeders, vermin: feared and hated aliens who descended unannounced—and unwanted—over Johannesburg twenty years ago. Their massive starship hangs poised over the crowded city, casting a daily reminder that we are not alone in the universe.The ship came and hovered in the hazy skies over Johannesburg, in a pall of silence. Humanity waited for something to happen; nothing did. A United Nations team was finally dispatched to investigate and what they found... Read More
Years and years ago, around the tail-end of my teenage years, I did not like romantic comedies. I remember my friends dragging me to see Fools Rush In, the 1997 release featuring Salma Hayek and Matthew Perry. I hated it. Despite everything that happens, they get back together in the end, as in so many romantic comedies. And to me that was total bullshit because, as I had recently found out, sometimes there is no happy ending. Of course, I had just broken up with my high school girlfriend, the love of my life (or so I thought at the time). Naturally I despised the happy ending.
These... Read More
Welcome one and all to MoJoe's Movie Mania! In an effort to bring order to the chaos that is my writing, I have decided to start a weekly installment. And here it is.
I love movies. Even more than that, I love critiquing movies, and I am quite sure I am not alone. Admit it, after watching a movie you spend the next hour or so arguing about it with your friends. You talk about it with co-workers, sometimes even your customers.
However, deep down, we all consider ourselves to be movie critics. Sure we don't have a fancy piece of paper from "movie college" saying we are "experts"... Read More
Although I’ve always been a sucker for a documentary that deals with controversial subject matter, the chances of me seeing a movie about steroid use were still pretty low. Fortunately, I live in LA, where the chances of knowing someone who is involved in a low-budget film project are always pretty high. In this case, it was my friend Hope Zarro, a make-up artist who invited me to the Hollywood premier of Bigger Stronger Faster, a documentary about steroids that she worked on and would appear in. Also appearing was her roommate, a tanned, towering, fitness model and actor named Christian... Read More
Directed by Sylvester Stallone
Produced by Avi Lerner
Written by Sylvester Stallone and David Callaham
There are those who said even before the movie came out, speaking just on having seen the trailers that THE EXPENDABLES looked to be nothing more than Sylvester Stallone attempting to relive his glory days when he was one of the major action stars back in the 80’s. These good folks, having regaled me with their smug wisdom sit back and ask me what I think of that.
My response is that he does have glory days... Read More
