With the number of recent celebrity deaths, I fear this particular passing went unnoticed and largely under-reported. The Oscars heaved their last breath of relevance on Wednesday morning, June 24, 2009 when Sid Ganis (President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) announced that beginning with the 2009 awards (scheduled for March 7, 2010), the Academy would nominate ten films for its coveted best picture award; breaking a sixty-five year tradition of only nominating five films to compete for this award. Someone cue the orchestra to strike up a dirge. May the Oscars rest in peace... Read More
In 1972 my mom took me to the Orphium Theatre, on Broadway, in downtown Los Angeles. In those days the Orphium played first-run movies with Spanish subtitles, this allowed mom and me to enjoy the same movie.
On this particular outing to the Orphium, the movie was Ben; the story of a young boy, named David, who befriends Ben, a dark colored rat. Ben leads a horde of pissed off rats – pissed because the last human they trusted tried to incinerate their furry butts. Somehow Ben finds it in his rat heart to make nice with this goofy kid, the unpopular kid, the kid that gets picked on (I... Read More

In 2008 movie fans and comic book fans alike were treated to one of the best, if not the best superhero movie made to date. I’m talking about “The Dark Knight” of course. A movie that went on to break box-office records and garnered unprecedented and overwhelmingly positive critical reviews. Even people who said they hated comic book/superhero movies loved “The Dark Knight” And with good reason: it just wasn’t a... Read More

Written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore
If you’ve been following my movie reviews for any decent length of time then you know that while I love comedies I rarely find any recently produced that do what I think comedies are supposed to do: make me laugh. Not just chuckle, chortle or smile. I want to walk out of the theater with my sides aching from laughing so much and so hard. “Tropic Thunder” did that last year... Read More

Based on “Star Trek” created by Gene Roddenberry
For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been a fan of Star Trek ever since I can remember. It was a nightly ritual for me that I couldn’t go to bed until I had watched Star Trek on WPIX here in New York where they reran it for years at 11:00PM. And I’ve seen all the movies in the theaters the day they opened. I’ve watched every... Read More
2nd Annual Brazilian Film Festival
Los Angeles-Americans have been in awe, intrigued and inspired by Brazilian culture for a long time. There is a large vibrant and thriving community of Brazilians in California thanks in part to the large influx who have settled into Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara and San Francisco. We can enjoy Brazilian cuisine, martial arts, dance, music, art and get a dose of Carnaval and a full range of Brazilian cinema (animation, documentaries, featured films and short films).
The 2nd Annual Brazilian Film Festival 2009 was held on March 12-15... Read More
