  • 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...

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...

  • "Who Watches the Watchmen?"

    I did. Last night, actually. I'm usually all over graphic-novels-turned-movies because I like to see how the film industry interprets the books and how accurate the sets are. On this one, I was going to wait to see the movie until I had read the novel, but at the urging of a Watchmen-loving friend...

  • The Spirit of the Beehive

    Thanks to a recommendation by my friend, I watched a stunning film this weekend. Set in a Castilian village somewhere in early 1940's rural Spain, this movie has won international acclaim as a masterpiece - labeled one of the greatest Spanish films of the 1970's. On the surface, it is a coming...
