  • Winter Holiday movies

    During the few days I had off over the holidays, I was able to catch a lot of movies. Some in the theater ( Avatar - excellent!; Sherlock Holmes - pretty good), but even more at home. Two movies that I had been waiting to come out on DVD did so right before I left on vacation. 500 Days of Summer stars...

  • Easy Virtue

    I am a huge fan of Colin Firth. I might question his decision to make films such as What a Girl Wants , but he easily redeems himself with performances in Love Actually, Then She Found Me, and now Easy Virtue. In this movie, Firth plays the distant father and husband of an English family living in a...

  • "Hot Fuzz" a modern spoof film worth watching

    While channel surfing several weekends ago, I happened upon Naked Gun 33 1/3 airing on Comedy Central. I used to love the Naked Gun series, with Leslie Nielsen portraying a bumbling Lieutenant Frank Drebin. It made me recall some of the other "classic" (I use that word subjectively) spoof films...

  • Meet Dave, you might not like him

    I just saw Eddie Murphy 's recent DVD release on my iPhone , and I think it had a few moments where it wasn't half bad. While the story was hokey, the acting wasn't anything to mention, and even though the Razzies agreed it was one of the worst movies of last year, I'm soft on it. Murphy...

  • "Burn After Reading"

    I guess the ads tipped us off that this was not your run of the mill spy thriller, but let me assure you that nothing about this Coen Brothers movie is run of the mill. Following the dark "No Country for Old Men," the brothers have returned to the comic instincts so evident in "Fargo,"...

  • "Chuck" is about a nerd that becomes a spy...essentially my life story

    In the television show Chuck , Charles "Chuck" Bartowski plays your typical 20-something computer-geek, stuck in a dead-end job at Buy More's Nerd Herd (a less-than-subtle parody of Best Buy's Geek Squad). He lives an uneventful life with his sister Ellie, until one day when he receives...

  • "Air Guitar Nation" cranks the make-believe volume up to 11

    How many times has this happened to you...you're listening to music and an epic guitar solo comes on. What do you do?!? You bust out the air guitar, showing onlookers the musical virtuoso you are. Apparently, air guitar is bigger than I realized. Since 1996, Oulu, Finland has been the home of the...
