... several familiar Olympic themes that Williams had written since the 1984 Olympics, a fitting tribute considering the recent conclusion of the Beijing Games. Crowds roared as the music bridged to the theme from Star Wars. Hundreds of light sabers waved in the Hollywood darkness as segments of the movie flashed over the monstrous big screens at the Bowl. Musical excerpts from Close Encounters, “Flight to Neverland” (Hook) and finally three pieces from Indiana Jones finished the 1st half of the concert. A tribute to composer Stanley Donen (Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Always... (more)
...is memorable for two roles. She was one of James Bond’s more memorable villains; the beautiful Xenia Onatopp who delighted in squeezing men to death between her thighs while having sex. And she played the telepath/telekinetic mutant superhero Jean Gray in the “X-Men” movies. Jon Favreau has made quite the reputation for himself as a dependable and extremely talented actor/director. Everybody knows him from his roles in “Swingers” and “Made” and he directed the megahit “Iron Man. So it was more my curiosity in seeing just what the... (more)

... him in “Mystery Men” “Dodgeball” “Night In The Museum” and thought he was out and out hysterically funny in “Meet The Parents”. But when he’s not funny I sit there like a meatloaf with no gravy and wonder when the comedy is going to start. Movies such as “There’s Something About Mary” “Zoolander” and “Starsky and Hutch” left me wondering what anybody attached to those movies thought was funny about them. I think I like him best when he’s in movies that enable him to show he’s... (more)
...been keeping up, this story started as a simple parenting snatch and child grab and has spun into a tale of murder, money, and the multiple identities of a man born in Germany who has no knowledge of his past.
I can already hear the keyboards of hack screenwriters banging away at a movie of the week.
On July 27th, “Snooks”, the love child of Clark Rockefeller and Sandra Lynne Boss, was taken during a custodial visit in Boston that had been supervised by a social worker. Clark Rockefeller convinced his regular driver that he was on the way to pick up his... (more)
...that brings her the head of Truck Turner gets Gator’s million dollar stable of ho’s. Truck Turner is soon confused as he finds himself the target of every pimp in L.A. who tries to whack him while wearing some of the most outlandish outfits you’ll ever see in a 70’s movie. One of the pimps is a little more dangerous than the others, though. Harvard Blue (Yaphet Kotto) has his eye set on Dorinda’s stable and he calls in a crew of shotgun wielding hitmen who call themselves The Insurance Company. The call themselves that because once they take your... (more)
...hazard that boggle the health-conscious part of the rational brain. Combo nine is a secret heaven to the senseless senses.
Perhaps my guilty pleasure of the past may be changed to “I’d like a rubber ducky combo with a diet Coke, no drain hair.” (Or insert the latest licensed movie toy for the ducky.)
In the heart of family values and Midwest ideals, a Burger King employee took a bath in the restaurant’s kitchen sink. Then the brilliant fellow named as “Mr. Unstable” posted his bath video on the Internet. I guess he did BK his way.

...better than this author would dare attempt. Instead, I offer pieces of daily impression, where smell and stench are enjoyable. I offer pieces that bind into a magical memory.
The scooter brigade has overrun the streets, and at times, the sidewalk; it didn’t look like a Hepburn movie even ten years ago. Current progress (measured in modern traffic) crawls past ancient ruins of civilization.
The recent addition of air-conditioning mocks the luxury of upholstered walls trimmed in wide moldings, all the way down to the marble floor. In the heat of the late... (more)
...to learn how to create a database without taking a course or paying for additional software.
The only problem with my laptop, the real reason it was in the closet, was like Troy, it had a Trojan horse hidden within.
Now, I like Saturdays. I like to go out to Venice or go see a movie, maybe do a little housecleaning or just watch a few movies and relax. What I didn’t like to do was spend it battling for the rights to use my laptop again.
To be fair, I have to admit that I am the despoiler of my computer. I never installed any antivirus software, I downloaded... (more)

I’m a guy who’s very hard on comedies. But that’s usually because I’ve got people telling me that so-and-so is the funniest movie ever made and then when I go see it in the theater or watch it at home on DVD I’m sitting there wondering when I’m going to start laughing. I laughed harder at “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” than I did at any of the “Austin Powers” movies. I’d much... (more)
