  • "Awake" an amazing TV show, cancelled after tonight

    I'm not a fan of hyperbole...but Awake is, without a doubt, the best show I've seen on TV in a long time. However, the bean counters at NBC have already cancelled the show. Tonight's season finale will also be the series finale. Detective Michael Britten survives a horrific car crash with...

  • Christopher Nolan movies you've probably never heard of

    With the success of Batman Begins , The Dark Knight , and the now-in-theaters Inception , Christopher Nolan has become a pretty popular guy. And rightfully so. However, most folks don't realize that Nolan has been making films for over 10 years. As a fan of fine cinema , I've been following ...

  • Pay Attention!

    I had never heard of Vantage Point (2008) when my son brought it home. He had seen previews on other DVDs, and thought it looked interesting.

  • Lucky "Thirteenth"

    I'll admit when it comes to literature, I am something of a late bloomer. It took a book group assignment last year for me to finally read Jane Eyre , and of course, I fell in love with it. Recently I followed some friends' recommendations of a book that's reminiscent of that classic novel...

  • "The Bank Job" a thoroughly engaging heist flick

    Most bank/casino/vault/car heist flicks follow a pretty generic formula (see Ocean's 11, The Italian Job, Gone in 60 Seconds, et al): Protagonist decides he wants to steal something. Protagonist assembles a team of wacky miscreants, each with their own special "talents". More planning....
