Star Trek

By DLFerguson, published on May 11, 2009

...

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 episode of every Star Trek TV series. Even “Voyager” and “Enterprise” I estimate I’ve read somewhere between fifty and seventy Star Trek books.

I relate all this not to impress upon you... (more)

Truth Or Dare Part 2

By Credo, published on May 10, 2009

...who are systematically connected to the secret establishment, which is a great conflict of interest for them but I make the challenge anyway. For further proof that religion was manipulated and established by man see the video called Zeitgeist (another word from German dialect) at www.Zeitgeistmovies.com. It starts out by an audio presentation with a black screen and then it begins the video presentation of the movie, so don’t be alarmed at the black screen and think that the video is not working. The first part shows war, information about 911 and the WTC is also somewhere on the video, ... (more)

Thunderous Latin Rhythms Reverberated Thru Ucla & Westwood

By Ricky Ricardo, published on Apr 28, 2009

...were featured in the final segment of the program. The tunes performed were “Alegria Geral,” “Protesto Olodum,” “Farao, Divinidade Do Egito,” “Orixa Medley,” and concluded their program with Frevo Medley a tune that was cooking on high steam on all burners.

My day in Westwood came to an end on a musical note. I traveled a couple of block east of the UCLA Hammer Museum to see the movie The Soloist with Academy Award consideration performances by Robert Downey Jr., and Jamie Foxx. This is a must see movie.

Based On A True Story

By Tyler Langness, published on Apr 26, 2009

...for his guidance. When we finished, I said goodbye to K.K. and all the wonderful people he'd introduced me to, thanking him profusely for an experience I would never forget. I looked forward to the opening of The Soloist this week, knowing that K.K. and some of his friends would be in the movie. And then, two days before the film's release, I heard that K.K. had been murdered. He was doing bodyguard work (without a weapon, he didn't carry one) and was shot on Easter Sunday. Typically, he was giving everything he had without ever really having anything. His senseless death... (more)

2nd Annual Brazilian Film Festival

By Ricky Ricardo, published on Mar 16, 2009

...12, with an Opening Night Gala with a Red Carpet arrivals event that featured actors, actresses, models, designers, producers, filmmakers and writers. There was a tremendous amount of energy on the red carpet that kept tripping the circuit to the lamps that lit the red carpet. The Opening Night movie was A Beautiful Night To Fly directed by Zelito Viana.

Friday the 13th was lucky for me and other movie goers; there were many movies that highlighted Brazilian music.

Samba Riachao directed by Jorge Alfredo and produced by Sylvia Abreu was a tour de force of the history of... (more)

The Watchmen Movie- Voyeurs Rejoice!

By VeroniqueChevalier, published on Mar 8, 2009

...of an azure version of the Oscar™ statue with a bindi), whose superhero incarnation was created via an accident in an atomic research lab, was granted the ability to flap freely in public with his privates. This is surely a milestone of sorts, but I must say that my very straight male movie-viewing companion was not particularly impressed. After the screening, he said he would have preferred more scenes with Laurie Jupiter/Silk Spectre II (Malin Akerman) in her nifty latex mufti, or preferably zipped out of it, and he wished that the film had more of those... (more)

Watchmen

By DLFerguson, published on Mar 8, 2009

...far more than men and women in brightly colored spandex beating the piss outta each other. It was a political thriller/satire, a murder mystery, a deconstruction of the superhero concept and an examination of the psychology of those people in the brightly colored spandex. And thankfully, the movie version of WATCHMEN is the same.

Thanks to a really cool credits sequence we’re introduced to an alternate world where superheroes came into prominence during the World War II era. Although costumed crimefighters such as Hooded Justice, Captain Metropolis, Silhouette... (more)

A Spending Orgy, Of Biblical Proportion

...backend form of taxation, that eventually every citizen will pay for, in the form of higher prices for goods and services. Rather then dubbing themselves as the most “Transparent Administration” perhaps a more suitable tag line for this administration should be from that blockbuster movie starring Paul Newman and Jackie Gleason…“The Hustler”.

As I’ve stated in pervious articles President Obama is a crafty and brilliant politician, he knows that the wealthy among us are a small minority, and an excellent group to malign among the general... (more)

The Wrestler

By DLFerguson, published on Feb 26, 2009

...by Darren Aronofsky

Produced by Darren Aronofsky and Scott Franklin

Written by Robert D. Siegel

Separately Mickey Rourke and Darren Aronofsky have given me many hours of cinematic pleasure. Mickey Rourke starred in what to me is one of the scariest movies ever made “Angel Heart” which is a damn good mixture of the private eye and horror genres. I even liked “Harley Davidson And The Marlboro Man””Year Of The Dragon” and “Heaven’s Gate” “Johnny Handsome” is one of the best crime ... (more)
