  • 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...

  • Sunshine Cleaning

    Rose and Norah were little girls when their little mother died. They both came in from playing in the yard to find their mom dead in the bathroom, an apparent suicide. As the two girls grow up, that day shapes their lives. Rose is a single mother working hard as a house cleaner to raise her son, while...

  • "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...

  • "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...

  • "Run Fatboy, Run" limps to the finish line

    I've always been a fan of Simon Pegg's work. In his previous efforts ( Shaun of the Dead , Hot Fuzz , & Spaced ), Pegg & co-star Nick Frost teamed up with absolutely hilarious results! Run Fatboy, Run is Pegg's latest film...and unfortunately it doesn't live up to its predecessors...

  • "Spaced" a short-lived, hilarious TV comedy

    I'm a fan of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. In the States, this comedic duo is best known for Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz (both of which I highly recommend!). They got their start in a British television comedy called Spaced ; it ran for two seasons (14 episodes total) during 1999-2001. It finally...

He attended the University of Evansville in Indiana, studying theater management, with an eye on honing business and management as well as dramatic skills...

  • "Pushing Daisies"

    The first season of this new ABC series just came out on DVD. " Pushing Daisies " is a fast-paced, whimsical, and light-hearted comedy -- nothing like the dark humor of "Six Feet Under" that I expected. Bryan Fuller ( Heroes, Wonderfalls ) and Barry Sonnenfeld ( Men in Black ) are...
