If you live in L.A., read this blog, and don’t know about American Cinematheque, well honestly, you probably don’t exist, but if you do! Check them out because they have a lot of (some) cool programs and some REALLY cool ones. Last year I went to a screening of The Dark Knight with a Q&A [...]
A funny and wacky Billy Wilder sex comedy, Kiss Me, Stupid was a surprisingly filthy choice for me to watch on my last sick (hangover) day. Dean Martin throws himself into his drunk and shockingly horny persona as lounge singer Dino who ends up stranded in Climax, Nevada on his way home from Vegas. But [...]
So, this should probably be called “buzzed review” because I’m not really *drunk* – but that’s getting pretty technical, so whatever. The Last Picture Show is really beautiful – not just the cinematography which is clean and expressive, but the story and the characters are really made beautiful by their flaws.

Just in time for the Thanksgiving, Holiday Inn, the best instance of Bing Crosby in blackface you can get on digitally remastered DVD!

Here’s what it taught me: Meryl Streep is not only a really super great actress, she also is really gorgeous. And really good at Polish accents. The Holocaust was really [...]
I wonder, has anyone asked Lindsey Lohan what she thinks of Owen Wilson? Honestly, Up in Smoke was kind of boring. Maybe I’ve been spoiled by the decades of stoner comedies that have come since 1978 but I was just not excited by this movie. So, “Man” (that’s his character’s name(even though IMDb says his [...]
Boy is this poster misleading… I once read a quote about Audrey Hepburn that said something like “She’s a woman that every woman wants to be like and every man forgets about.” I don’t know who said it and I couldn’t find in anywhere, but I am very curious as to the context of it [...]
