I'm sure that many of you, like me, damn near laughed yourself into a hernia upon hearing that Sylvester Stallone was going to make yet another "Rocky"movie. After I had my sore ribs taped and calmed down, I thought about it a little more. And I found that I really couldn't blame Stallone. Here's a guy who sincerely worked his ass off to step out and try other roles and expand his range as an actor. I confess that I thought "Oscar" was hilarious and he should have gotten one for "Copland". Unfortunately the public got burned one too many times by stinkers such as "Judge Dredd", "Assassins"...

Captured over an entire year traveling with the successful Presidential hopeful by Alexandra Pelosi, daughter of Democratic Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi; "Journeys with George" is a genuinely interesting and entertaining documentary shows an incredibly revealing portrayal of both the President himself and also the press core that followed him around the country as he endeavored to convince everyone to vote for him. Ms. Pelosi states about the film that people will see what they want to see, which truly seems a fair assessment. The "unplugged" antics of George Bush viewed by supporters or opponents... Read More

Grindhouse, the latest Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino collaboration, pays homage to the low-budget campy exploitation films of the 60s and 70s with a 21st century 53 million dollar bankroll.

The double bill features Planet Terror and Death Proof peppered with three amusingly gruesome faux movie trailers directed by Eli Roth, Edgar Wright, and Rob Zombie. This 3 hour and 12 minute free-for-all has the big explosions, gruesome special effects, misogynistic violence, and scantily clad vixens that satisfy fans of this genre. In keeping true to the look of B-movies, Grindhouse shows... Read More

I never realized what true devotion was until I experienced the love on display at the Buffy Sing- a- Long at the IFC Center. For those of you who don't know: this is a staged screening of the all singing Buffy episode: "Once More With Feeling". As the show unspools on the big screen, actors lip sync and pantomime the action on stage. Much audience participation, glitter and bubble blowing ensues. I was shocked as I approached the theater and saw a line stretching up sixth ave. I was even more taken aback by the crowd. It was a surreal mix of middle aged, overweight comic book collectors...

Take robust, primal passion; a giant, whale sized heart; blind devotion; raw untamed lust; sheer genius --- okay, okay, maybe not genius, but definitely a twisted ironic intellect. Combine that with a complete lack of anything resembling athletic ability or fashion sense; mix in the common short term goals of social acceptance and virginity loss. Then, dear reader, you'll start to form a mental picture of one of the great movie archetypes of the modern age: The Geek. The modern Geek broke out in the early 80's in a hailstorm of turgid, raging hormones and outright physical awkwardness. Movies... Read More

The sun is setting, the car is parked on a slight incline as a boxy metallic speaker hangs precariously from the window, and at the edge of the lot sits a monolithic white screen. Outside, kids run to and fro, making new friends while eyeing the junk food at the concessions stands. Teens park in groups, loud and rambunctious, while others sit off in the back of the lot waiting for darkness for their chance to grope and neck. Somewhere on the screen, aliens are landing, zombies want more brains, and scantily clad women are fleeing in terror from the latest stalker. The plots are bad, the acting... Read More

One of my all-time favorite films is This is Spinal Tap. The movie is more than twenty years old, but still stands up to the test of time. This is Spinal Tap (1984) is the hilarious rock / mockumentary about the trials and tribulations of a semi-fictional heavy metal band. Michael McKean (as David St. Hubbins, named after the patron saint of quality footwear), Christopher Guest (as Nigel Tufnel) and Harry Shearer (as Derek Smalls) first appeared together in a 1978 ABC comedy special, The TV Show. The band is fictional, because these guys are comic actors, but by doing concerts and releasing... Read More
