The Visit - genuinely chilling

The Visit – genuinely chilling

Someone once asked Don McLean what his one monster hit American Pie meant to him. He said it meant he didn’t have to work if he didn’t want to. For the record, his follow up single Vincent was a great song as well. However, the point is sometimes your first hit is the biggest. Enter […]

You don't need to like rap to love this movie

You don’t need to like rap to love this movie

So, I thought I was back before but that was a false start. I needed to recharge and rediscover my love for movies. Or at least my love for writing about movies. I tried to write some reviews mid-summer but I thought my writing was tired and cliched. OK that’s nothing new but I didn’t […]

Calling Sunday's Oscars - sometimes almost right

Calling Sunday’s Oscars – sometimes almost right

S0 – to the people who noticed I have been an infrequent contributor of late. A variety of things ranging from some serious health stuff to just needing to catch my breath, away from this column, resulted in my absence. I am excited to write again and feel there are some good films to talk […]

Bird is the word

Bird is the word

Next week will be my Oscars column and in preparation for that, I went to see Birdman which may or may not get Michael Keaton a Best Actor award.  He’s definitely good in it. In fact he’s the best part but is it enough?  And what is it?  That’s the question. There appear to be […]

In the history of ever, the Theory of Everything

In the history of ever, the Theory of Everything

I have clearly staked out my territory in film these days. I like movies where people are nice to each other. It’s that simple. To quote Don Henley, we all need a little tenderness, how can l survive in such a tasteless age? So I approached The Theory of Everything with some promise. It’s a […]

People laugh out loud love Dumb and Dumber To

People laugh out loud love Dumb and Dumber To

Let’s start with the original. Dumb and Dumber was a huge hit back when Jim Carrey’s career arc was on a meteoric climb and you could cast a fire hydrant as his co-star and it would still be a hit. No offence Jeff Daniels. This was back in the heyday of DVDs. There was no […]

Guardians of the Galaxy is funny-smart

Guardians of the Galaxy is funny-smart

So it took me awhile, but I finally got around to reviewing Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, let’s start with a simple premise. I was not eager to see this. It looked silly or at least weird.  I mean it has a killer raccoon, a bunch of odd characters that look like they were knock-offs […]

Can't miss summer releases missed by a Country mile

Can’t miss summer releases missed by a Country mile

So, at the start of the summer I always write a column guessing what the box office hits of the summer will be. It’s an imprecise sort of speculation and the only time I even reference it is on those rare occasions when I get something right. This might be one of those occasions, but […]

Third time no charm for tired and tedious Expendables

Third time no charm for tired and tedious Expendables

Amidst the news storm that accompanied Robin Williams’ death, was the loss of another icon. Lauren Bacall died Sept. 16th after years of declining health. She was beautiful, talented and could tell you to go to hell and make you look forward to the trip. Her voice was legendary. Sultry and husky. She had a […]

Six Million Dollar Arm surprisingly good

Six Million Dollar Arm surprisingly good

I understand that my movie preferences are evolving. I find that more and more I am looking for movies where people are nice to each other. I think I’m just experiencing some Breaking Bad Game of Thrones burn out. The problem with all those shows is that when you are going for hardcore gritty you […]
