Hoffman - a legend passes

Hoffman – a legend passes

I don’t do a lot of obituaries but there are times when we lose someone of great stature and it deserves to be noted. Academy award winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman died on February 2 of an apparent heroin overdose. When his body was recovered there was a syringe in his arm. Death was instantaneous. […]

And the award should go to...

And the award should go to…

I think one of the great decisions of late by the Academy Award braintrust was to expand the Best Picture nominees to 10. It really gives them a chance to highlight very good films that would otherwise slip through the elitist cracks and recognizes that half the time we have barely heard of the films […]

Anchorman 2 broadcasts from lame lane

Anchorman 2 broadcasts from lame lane

So, the legend of Ron Burgandy continues. My concern about this movie started when they announced that there was going to be an Anchorman 2 on the Conan O’Brien show and none of the other actors knew anything about it. I’m not sure why that seemed like a bad thing but normally there’s some buzz […]

Frozen is Disney at its finest

Frozen is Disney at its finest

Here’s hoping everyone had a great holiday season and that 2014 is a great year for everyone associated with this column. People who don’t read it won’t be able to have a fully actualized year because they’ll be missing all the insight and witty comments. Ya, that’s a loss. On with the review. As a […]

'Tis the season to name top 10 Christmas movies

‘Tis the season to name top 10 Christmas movies

Tis the season to debate  whether it’s Christmas or The Holiday Season, depending on which politically correct manifesto we’re reading from, but there’s no controversy that can keep me from squeezing out another Top 10 list. Originally I thought we could just reprint the old one but I thought it might be interesting to see […]

Thor 2 a bit of a snore but it's fine, really

Thor 2 a bit of a snore but it’s fine, really

The second installment of the Hunger Games is thundering along and even with a 50 per cent drop off, it’s huge. Meanwhile, back on Odin, the second installment of Thor walks loudly and carries a big hammer. Recognizing that the next time Hollywood has an original idea it will be the first time, I have […]

Hunger Games good food for the eyes

Hunger Games good food for the eyes

When the first Hunger Games came out, I knew nothing about it but the hype. I was excited at the potential profit it represented but it just seemed like another in a series. I did hear from a few people whom had read the books that it was a great series but it’s always a […]

Captain Phillips the must-see movie of this year

Captain Phillips the must-see movie of this year

Wow. That’s my thumbnail sketch of Captain Phillips. Wow You come out of that movie emotionally sore. Is it blasphemy to say you’re not a huge Tom Hanks fan? He’s the Tea Party’s Denzel Washington. Always earnest, always steady, once in awhile dark. So some of his roles have seemed tedious to me. Not this […]

Amazing moments made me fall for Gravity

Amazing moments made me fall for Gravity

So, I was watching the first digital projector in the Peterson empire. Yes, we are slowly coming into this century – kicking and screaming and begging for spare change – but it’s happening. So we fired up Gravity, the new film from Sandra Bullock, George Clooney and Ed Harris.  In theory, we were just going […]

Just in time for Halloween: The 10 scariest movies about horrible humans doing evil and vile things

Just in time for Halloween: The 10 scariest movies about horrible humans doing evil and vile things

Well, Halloween is upon us and what better time for a repeat of a classic column? Ok that’s taking liberties, but it is a column from the yesteryear’s file. I went through it and tried to decide if there were any new movies that needed to be included and the short answer is not really. […]
