Reckless

Reckless is one of my favorite underrated movies. Starred a young Daryl Hannah and Aidan Quinn just before they both made it big the next year in 1985: he broke through with Desperately Seeking Susan and she made a big SPLASH with Tom Hanks. He was…

Tales from the Script

I loved this documentary about screenwriting. You will learn a ton of things you never knew before about the craft of writing for the big screen. There are tons of behind the scenes stuff that keep you thoroughly enthralled, if you’re a big film buff as…

Netflix Nirvana

I love movies and the internet so of course I’m going to be a big fan of Netflix. I love that its popularity continues to grow as more people learn how great it is. I had the same feeling or Tivo when I discovered it and…

Galway Girl

I’m still thinking about that wonderful movie “P.S. I Love You”.  Here’s a fantastic scene when the widow watches a performer singing a song and then suddenly realizes that it’s the same song that her late husband sang when they first met. Amazing acting by Hilary…

The Man Who Can’t Be Moved

I can’t stop listening to “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved” by The Script. It was featured in the original motion picture soundtrack for “P.S. I Love You” which I also loved. They’re an Irish band that were called MyTown before. Great song, video and band!…

P.S. I Love You

I watched “P.S. I Love You” (2007) recently but waited a while before writing about it in order to let it sink in to see how it really affected me. I have to say that my opinion of the movie only gets better as the days…

The Family Man

I think I love the “The Family Man” (2000) because it reminds me so much of my all-time favorite movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life” (1946). Instead of the main character wishing he’d never been born at all like George Bailey, Nicholas Cage’s Jack gets a glimpse…

Validation

I am obsessed with this short 16-minute film short called “VALIDATION”.  At first, I thought it was funny but a little over the top as many indy shorts tend to be but then it just kept getting better and better until the wonderful finale! There are…

Serendipity

Serendipity is one of my favorite movies, especially this time of year. John Cusak and Kate Beckinsale are wonderful in the leads as the star-crossed lovers. There are plenty of excellent performances including John Corbett as the famous Zamfir-like musician boyfriend and Jeremy Piven as Cusak’s…

25th Anniversary of A Christmas Story

It’s been 25 years since “A Christmas Story” was released in 1983. Based on writing from the narrator, Jean Sheppard and directed by Bob Clark (from Porky’s fame!), it’s become a national Christmas classic. Much like “It’s a Wonderful Life” became a Christmas tradition thanks to…
