On Michael Jackson's Death

By DLFerguson, published on Jun 25, 2009

Here in Brooklyn, windows of cars, houses and apartments are wide open. And the music of Michael Jackson is pouring out of all of them.Michael Jackson was the architect of the soundtrack for an entire generation. "King Of Pop" was too limiting for him as far as I'm concerned. And maybe that's because I grew up with Michael. 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... (more)

Available On You Tube

In 2008 movie fans and comic book fans alike were treated to one of the best, if not the best superhero movie made to date. I’m talking about “The Dark Knight” of course. A movie that went on to break box-office records and garnered unprecedented and overwhelmingly positive critical reviews. Even people who said they hated comic book/superhero movies loved “The Dark Knight” And with... (more)

The Hangover

By DLFerguson, published on Jun 15, 2009



Warner Brothers

Directed by Todd Phillips

Produced by Todd Phillips and Daniel Goldberg

Written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore

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)

Paramount Pictures

Directed by J.J. Abrams

Produced by J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof

Written Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman

Based on “Star Trek” created by Gene Roddenberry

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... (more)

The Wrestler

By DLFerguson, published on Feb 26, 2009



Fox Searchlight Pictures

Directed 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... (more)

Madea Goes To Jail

By DLFerguson, published on Feb 22, 2009




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)

Corpse Bride

By DLFerguson, published on Feb 11, 2009

2005Warner Bros.Directed by Tim Burton and Mike JohnsonProduced by Tim Burton and Allison AbbateWritten by John August, Pamela Pettler and Caroline ThompsonThere’s only two types of filmmakers that would do a stop-motion animation film these days: one who is either insanely patient or one who has a genuine and deep love for the art form. Most animation is done on computers these days and stop-motion animation just simply isn’t done any more because…well, let’s put it this way: you don’t do a stop motion animated film if you’re in a rush. Simply put... (more)

Same Time, Next Year

By DLFerguson, published on Feb 11, 2009


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)
