  • "Moon" and the David Bowie connection

    Did you know that the director of the recently relased DVD "Moon" -- Duncan Jones (also known as Zowie or Joey) -- is the son of David Bowie? Which is especially intriguing because "Moon" is the ethereal tale of a lonely man finishing up a three-year stint as the sole operator of...

  • "John Dillinger : the life and death of America's first celebrity criminal" by Dary Matera

    Because of the Indiana connection, I've always been somewhat interested in John Dillinger. But it was only after watching Johnny Depp bring the notorious bankrobber to life in his latest flick , that I decided to check out the details. This book was just the ticket. Here are some brief FAQs of his...

  • 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...

  • "Let the Right One In": a Swedish vampire flick

    A Swedish vampire flick, you say? Impossible -- there is no such genre! But here it is in the flesh. And it turns out that it not only netted a whopping 97% rating on rottentomatoes.com but "Cloverfield" director Matt Reeves is making an American version to be released in 2010. So is it worth...

  • 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...

  • Doomsday, wrathful robots, other cheerfulness in "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles"

    Being a self-proclaimed sci-fi geek, I love the Terminator movies. With three theatrical movies, and a fourth coming in 2009 ( Terminator Salvation , starring Christian Bale!), Fox decided to capitalize on the series' success with a spin-off television series. Season 1 of Terminator: The Sarah Connor...

  • "Iron Man"

    Loved it! My son had told me that this was the superhero action movie of the year -- NOT The Dark Knight -- and now I know what he means. The good guys weren't perfect, the bad guys weren't Satan personified, and the plot unpredictable and halfway intelligent. Robert Downey Jr obviously had a...

  • "John Adams": HBO miniseries

    If you didn't watch this absolutely wonderful series when it was on HBO, do so now! I just spent 8 glorious hours in the bosom of the Adams family -- from the early 1770s until John's death on July 4, 1826. (In case you didn't remember, John Adams and his good friend/enemy and co-founding...

  • "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...
