THE ROOKIE

1990

Warner Bros.

Produced by Howard G. Kazanjian, Steven Siebert & David Valdes

Directed by Clint Eastwood

Written by Scott Spiegel and Boaz Yakin

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

THE EXPENDABLES

2010

Lionsgate

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

In typical Tim Burton style, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland (3D) dips its toe into borderline madness. But that’s to be expected from a film based on the famous Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll. And “based” is the correct term. Anyone who has read the classic will recognise the characters and the settings, but the story itself, whilst anchored in the book, diverges and follows its own path. The more astute viewer may notice that Wonderland is a darker place than you might think, and that some of the famous scenes, The Mad Hatter’s tea party for instance, have a more solemn and...
