I don’t know about the rest of you reading this but I’ve come by my love of The Coen Brothers honestly. I’ve been a fan of theirs ever since I saw 1984’s “Blood Simple” during its original theatrical run. I had even seen 1985’s “Crimewave” in a 42end Street grindhouse. But most people didn’t notice them until 1987’s “Raising Arizona” which probably was their first major mainstream hit. And rightfully so. Even today in TV series like “My Name Is Earl” you can see the influence of “Raising Arizona”. They continued their amazing career with one of the best crime/gangster movies ever made: “Miller’s...

Just because you have Daniel Day-Lewis in your movie does not mean that you can forego everything else, namely, - an equally stunning supporting cast, character development, a complete, well-developed story, and last but not least, - editing. If your going to make what is essentially a 3 hour movie, you'd better have some compelling reasons for doing it. Day-Lewis in the title role is a compelling reason, but he can't do it alone, and that is exactly where director and writer Paul Thomas Anderson leaves him, - stranded and alone on the screen with mediocre dialogue, a still-born story,...

This whole writer’s strike business is getting hairy…really, really hairy. Now that Warner Brothers is rumored to be cutting up to 1,000 jobs and the Golden Globes have been reduced to a press conference, I don’t know what to think.Will the Oscars be next? What’s a fashion designer to do? Some days I wonder if it will ever end. For awhile (back in November,) I was thankful for my freedom, sans WGA membership. As an unaffiliated writer, I could write to my little heart’s content while supporting the WGA union writers and their cause.“Hey, I’ve got no guild to tie me down,To make me fret and... Read More
Tom Hanks is an actor I've followed since he co-starred on the ABC television series "Bosom Buddies" along with Peter Scolari. In that show they played two men who masqueraded as women to get cheap housing in an all women's hotel. I watched the show because of two reasons: I was madly in love with the full figured Wendie Jo Sperber and I enjoyed the rapport between Hanks and Scolari.
Tom Hanks went on to be one of our most respected movie actors today. In fact, he's been called "The New Jimmy Stewart" and I don't think that's far wrong. He's portrayed a wide range of characters and... Read More
Still riding high on the success of the third installment in the Rush Hour franchise earlier this year, actor Chris Tucker has been chosen to costar in the sequel to the Coen brother's neo-classic No Country For Old Men. When asked about choosing Tucker to costar alongside Javier Bardem, who will revisit his role as Anton Chigurh in the sequel, Ethan Coen explained, "Joel and I have had a lot of people ask us about picking Chris for this part, but to us the choice was obvious. When it comes to sequels, Chris is Hollywood's golden boy. Everyone knows about Rush Hour, but what about the Friday... Read More
Joel and Ethan Coen are masters at what they do; making entertaining movies that have a lot more going on than you see the first time. They've made some of my favorite films such as "Raising Arizona","Blood Simple" "O Brother Where Art Thou?", and the magnificent "Miller's Crossing", which is one of the best gangster movies ever made. If you haven't seen any of their movies, you need to rectify that error the next time you wonder what to rent for a Friday or Saturday night. BARTON FINK was written when the Brothers Coen claimed they suffered writer's block while they were working on the screenplay... Read More
Once upon a time there was this street in Manhattan. 42end Street. Now before you jump up and say; "It's still there." Let me say that no. It' not. Oh, 42nd Street is there. But it's not there. Give me a minute to explain. Back in the 70's and 80's you could go to 42end Street between 7th and 8th Avenue and on both sides on the street there were nothing but movie theaters. Cheap movie theaters that showed double and even triple features. And when I say cheap I mean $2 or $3 bucks. That's right. You could go see two movies for three lousy dollars and stay in the theater until it... Read More
