First of all I'd like to thank all of you who were thoughtful enough to email me personally and ask questions about my writings. My movie reviews in particular. Some of you even asked me why don't I do an entire book of movie reviews. Little do you know that you should never give me such an opening. "And why is that?" .... some wiseguy in the twelfth row shouts out. Because I already have. DERRICK FERGUSON'S MOVIE REVIEW NOTEBOOK was published earlier this year and if you'd be at all interested in a copy for yourself then bounce on over here http://www.lulu.com/content/260678 for further...

A documentary of a man in Hollywood('the outskirts of Hollywood') A single camera follows his every move... How he stays in shape... His point of view of today's Hollywood. And many more situations that we take for granted. The film is thought provoking and comical. It has all the elements in a film to take the audience on a personal journey. You can relate to him... Share his pain or even share a tear... He's just one face of many faces of America who's trying to stand out. THE FACE OF AMERICA(crew) Duffau Productions is based in Los Angeles, Ca. This is the first project by this start... Read More

The Hollywood studio system's grand demise occurred during the time between the Great Depression and U.S. entry into World War II. In 1948, the U.S. Department of Justice sued the major studios for anti-competitive practices. In what is now called the Paramount Decision, the court ruled against the studios, and according to The Oxford History Of World Cinema, the court called for the immediate "divorce of production and exhibition and the elimination of unfair booking practices." In another hallmark decision, actress Olivia de Havilland, most known for her role in the feature film, Gone... Read More

I’m not a football guy at all. My sports are baseball, boxing and tennis. I can understand the complexities of Star Trek technobabble or Pre-Crisis DC Comics continuity with no problem but trying to understand the rules of football makes me feel like the village idiot. Oh, if you invite me over to your house to watch a game with you, I’ll show up gladly with the beer and the buffalo wings but the only thing I understand about football is that one guy gets the ball and runs like his ass is on fire while a bunch of other guys try to stop him. So why did I watch FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS which... Read More

Every once in a while I'll run across a movie that's a real eye-opener in terms of subject material and acting. Usually it's a movie I've heard or read about but rarely shown on television or available on DVD or VHS. A FACE IN THE CROWD is a movie I've never heard about and when it was shown on Turner Classic Movies the only reason I watched it was because the excellently informative and engaging host of Turner Classic Movies, Robert Osborne made the movie sound so interesting that I decided to give it a try, even though it was starring Andy Griffith who has never been the least bit interesting...

The world of 28 DAYS LATER will be very familiar to those of us who have watched End Of The World classics such as the George Romero DEAD TRILOGY, ON THE BEACH, THE WORLD, THE FLESH AND THE DEVIL and THE OMEGA MAN.

People are fascinated by the idea of the World As We Know It Coming To An End. And 28 DAYS LATER does a truly awesome job of not only convincing us of the reality of what we're watching, it makes us think about the destructiveness of human nature. There is nothing in the movie that does not occur save through human arrogance and failure. Arrogance in our stubborn belief... Read More

And look at what he's achieved. What you never thought of. He's achieved what the brightest people with the highest IQ's could never achieve. Was it just a movie? Maybe. But at least it was a good message. A true masterpiece written by novelist Winston Groom and then adapted for the screen by screenwriter Eric Roth. Directed by Robert Zemeckis. And one of the greatest acting performances of all time by Tom Hanks. Two thumbs up. Forrest Gump was released in 1994 for eternity. A 142 minute journey of a man who was slow in the head, who knew how to love and to whom life opened its arms wide... Read More
