... 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 is a football movie? As so often happens I had nothing else to watch on my TiVO. I’d seen every other movie I had saved on it and FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS was the only thing I hadn’t watched. Twenty minutes into the movie I was hooked for a lot a reasons that had nothing to do with football. The movie... (more)
... American youth, but ostensibly he's being queried for his opinions on the Palin family. Which is a bit like asking Nicole Richie's neighbors to find out what she's up to. I mean, far be it from the Palin family to shy from the spotlight. The entire family is separately negotiating book deals and movie rights - if you want to know about them, just ask. What's more, if they're being especially secretive about something, maybe you should ask someone who isn't cognitively taxed by multi-syllable words. I mean, I know Alaska's not necessarily an intellectual hotbed, but it's also no South... (more)
All right, so I’m several weeks late to this party. I finally saw the Transformers movie last night. I can’t believe this was the movie I was so looking forward to months ago. Unfortunately the experience was much like going to a party,given by one of your parents’ friends – you had to go, the party was okay, but staying home could of also worked out fine.This Transformers movie serves as a case study for a common Hollywood fallacy thatdictates, “More is better.” In thiscase more comedy, more explosions, and more robots didn’t make a more enjoyable...

...and curiousity, and freedom to live in the ability to make choices for ourselves. Did Michael write those amazing songs full of good intentions and powerful words to be a millionaire and be living his life hiding from fans and foes constantly being attacked for his outwardly outrageous ideas. Movie stars have surgery to lose hundreds of pounds and look and feel better for themselves and their fans, but God forbid a nose job! Billionaires build casinos and restaurants, but God forbid one builds a childs fantasyland, yet he be called a pedophile. Celebrities adopt children all over the... (more)
... I truly felt that he was a member of my family. I remember seeing him and his brothers singing "The Love You Save" on "The Ed Sullivan Show". I remember going to see "Ben" at The Metropolitan on Fulton Street and singing along with Michael Jackson when the theme song played at the end of the movie.I remember going to a "Thriller" party when the mini-film directed by John Landis debuted on MTV. This was back in the day when music videos were truly events and the debut of a Michael Jackson video on MTV was something you took off work from, you postponed any appointment, you put off... (more)
...system. No nutrition, no immunity to diseases or viruses. Just take a look at Kim Jong II and his method of food control in North Korea. The man just loves to starve his own people. Then they get sick, and big pharma andhis corrupt government can make millions. Sounds just like a bad sci-fi movie. The question is why? Well I was about to findmy missing piece of the puzzleas we left church and stumbled upon a free, touring exhibition by the Citizens Commision on Human Rights about the field of Psychiatry: Past and Present. This exhibition is located on the corner of 5th & 28th across ... (more)

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”... (more)
...Acres” or “The Brady Bunch” but it’s awful close.
The theme song is used in the theatrical remake LAND OF THE LOST starring Will Ferrell but to comedic effect. Which is what most of what was taken seriously in the TV show is used for in the movie: as comedy.
Dr. Rick Marshall (Will Ferrell) is considered a lunatic crackpot by the scientific community. He claims that the way to replenish the world’s dwindling energy resources is to use time warps to travel to parallel/alternate dimensions and plunder their... (more)
...in the times where money is tight and if you do go out to eat, you want a pleasant dining experience for your money.
As a promise to my mom when I move down here to lovely sunny and recently Earth shooken Los Angeles, I come home once a month to visit.
Usually we go shopping, movie or dinner. You know the mother/daughter stuff.
My neighborhood that grew up in has had interesting changes over the last 30 years, and I’m glad to see some diversified restaurants crop up in the Dimond District of Oakland. Sure there have been others, but didn’t stay too... (more)
