Madea Goes To Jail

By DLFerguson, published on Feb 22, 2009

MADEA GOES TO JAIL

2009

Lionsgate

Written, Directed and Produced by Tyler Perry

I’m pretty sure that if I ever ran into Tyler Perry and asked him why he titled this movie MADEA GOES TO JAIL when she actually spends a relatively short amount of the movie’s 103 minutes in jail he would most likely answer: “Well, I never said she would spend the whole movie in jail.” Which actually would be a pretty reasonable answer. Madea does go to jail and she does raise her unique brand of hell while she’s... (more)

And He Laid His Hands On Them, And Healed Them (luke 4:40)

By Amo, published on Feb 13, 2009

...that this miraculous moment might transcend to my own needs and wants, after all I reasoned, wasn’t Jesus also a man…made of flesh and blood?

I wasn’t asking for a new house, or an expensive car, or a Rolex. All I wanted was for my next novel, to be a best seller, and perhaps a movie deal to follow…was that asking to much?

Forget those phony TV preaches, and those bible thumbing evangelists, who constantly ask for money and donations, and give nothing in return…we now have the real deal, President Obama, aka….THE ONE, who gives us free stuff.

Corpse Bride

By DLFerguson, published on Feb 11, 2009

... crazy. There’s a nice little homage to Mr. Harryhausen in TIM BURTON’S CORPSE BRIDE that I liked. I like it when I see acknowledgments to artists like Mr. Harryhausen as it’s easy to forget that men like him were the ones who were able to pioneer their art form that give us movies like TIM BURTON’S CORPSE BRIDE.And the movie should be seen and appreciated for the brilliant technical work that’s gone into making it but as for the actual story itself…well, that’s another matter altogether….Victor Van Dort (voiced by Johnny Depp) is... (more)

Same Time, Next Year

By DLFerguson, published on Feb 11, 2009

1978

Universal Pictures

Directed by Robert Mulligan

Produced by Walter Mirisch and Morton Gottlieb

Written by Bernard Slade based on his play

Romantic comedies are most definitely not my favorite genre of movie when I sit down to be entertained by a movie. I’d rather go get a tooth pulled than have to sit through anything resembling a romantic comedy (unless it stars Sandra Bullock and then I make an exception) because when you talk about predictable story and overwrought acting, that’s the... (more)

Paff Celebrating Rich African Heritage Globally In Cinema

By Ricky Ricardo, published on Feb 10, 2009

...will screen over 175 films from the United States, Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, the South Pacific and Canada, all showcasing the diversity and complexity of people of African descent.

                My busy schedule allowed me the opportunity to attend a movie on Saturday, February 7. I always gravitate towards movies about musicians and or music in the storyline. I saw the entertaining movie “Panman, Rhythm of the Palms.”  The story is about the rise and fall of the Caribbean steel drum pan player Harry Daniels, who is desperate to pass the pan ... (more)

Slumdog Millionaire

By DLFerguson, published on Feb 9, 2009

... “Shallow Grave” horror: “28 Days Later” romantic comedy: “A Life Less Ordinary” science fiction: “Sunshine” and gritty urban drama: “Trainspotting”. Even this diversity of film genres didn’t lead anybody to suspect that he had a movie like SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE in him. But then again, maybe only a director who won’t allow himself to rest comfortably in one genre could direct a movie like this.

A lot of people have been asking me recently have I seen SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE and if so, did I think it... (more)

Dancing With The Stars Season Eight Announced

By D. E. Carson, published on Feb 9, 2009

... her Gold Medal winning appearance at the Beijing Olympic games and at seventeen she's the youngest contender so far. I'd like to see her win just because she hasn't been jaded by Hollywood and still seems to have her down-to-earth personality in tact.

Gilles Marini - If you saw the movie Sex and the City, you remember this guy what Carrie Bradshaw's neighbor. Another actor looking for work I guess.

And finally, the one cast member that made me fall off my chair laughing and the whole reason for the "jump the shark" award...

Steve Wozniak - Co-founder... (more)

The Wrath Of God

By DLFerguson, published on Feb 3, 2009

...waiting for them at the end of the mission but during the course of the adventure the outlaws would find their long buried sense of justice and honor awakened and they would abandon the money to take up the cause of the downtrodden and oppressed peasantry. This is pretty much the plot of movies such as “The Wild Bunch” “The Professionals” “Duck, You Sucker” and “Vera Cruz” but I’ve never seen this plot worked in such a goofy and flat out off the wall manner as we see in THE WRATH OF GOD.

Mother, Jugs & Speed

By DLFerguson, published on Feb 2, 2009

...JUGS & SPEED

1976

20th Century Fox

Directed by Peter Yates

Written by Tom Mankiewicz and Stephen Manes

Produced by Joseph R. Barbera

One of the reasons I love cable/satellite stations like Fox Movie Channel and Turner Classic Movies among others is that they show movies I haven’t seen for 10 or 20 years and have usually forgotten (even though The Wife makes a nice little bundle on the side betting people that there hasn’t been a movie I’ve seen that I’ve... (more)

Vanishing Point

By DLFerguson, published on Jan 30, 2009

...Fox

Directed by Richard C. Sarafian

Produced by Norman Spencer

Story By Malcolm Hart

Screenplay by Guillermo Cain

VANISHING POINT holds a unique place in movie history: it may be the only existential car chase movie ever made. I’ve seen this movie maybe three or four times and while it is undoubtedly an interesting movie and one worth watching it’s that type of movie where at the end you sit there and wonder just what the point of the... (more)
