In his latest editorial at the end of Friday’s Real Time, Bill Maher put out a poignant plea for the public’s understanding and sympathy toward Hollywood’s big, self-promoting pat on the back that’s known as the Oscars. That one, special night, says our lad, is deserved, because – well, because […]

I read an article the other day that Miyazaki is producing a film, called Karigurashi no Arrietty, due to come out in 2010. I can’t wait! You haven’t heard of him? That’s OK. A lot of people in the U.S. haven‘t. I bet in some way, some how, you‘ve brushed […]

    I am bothered by movies, such as “Saw” and “Hostel”, that, to me, serve no purpose other than to depict the extremes of human pain and cruelty. I confess to having never watched a film from either of those series, nor have I watched a Hannibal Lector movie, […]

I love quotes from great scientists, philosophers and even politicians because they give you a little insight into the mind of those people. Literature aside for a second I have to admit many of my favorite quotes are from movies. Many times when my wife and I talk to each […]

One thing that I’ve really been struck by is Hollywood’s near-obsession with American Indians. I have very mixed feelings about it. The natives in “Avatar” were an extremely obvious allegory for the Indians of the America West. “Avatar” was very corny and hokey … and pretty predictable. It’s also unabashably […]

The “Oldies But Goodies” Friday night at PPOV post last week got me recollecting about a neat thing that happened this summer. It was something that showed me how music can speak through the generations – when you least expect it to. I was downtown with my daughter and her […]

I still cannot for the life of me get these blasted images inserted correctly. Anyway, any good scuttlebutt that you have heard about Up In The Air is entirely justified.    The movie is in limited release in LA and NY and will be at a multiplex near you shortly.   (My […]

Music has always been a part of film, even while running silent movies a pianist would play in the theater to enhance the drama, comedy or action that was being shown on the big screen.  From the 40’s to the 60’s directors mostly used music as the main theme in […]

I see fewer movies than ever in theaters. I’ve come to regard it as showing greater respect for a film to go through the hassle and expense of seeing it at a theater as opposed to seeing it on satellite or DVD. It’s not that I don’t enjoy seeing films […]

Putting the day’s frustration behind me, I am kicking off a Friday night trivia game thread which I hope you’ll all feel free to join in and give both questions and answers. Here’s the rule I’ve come up with after consulting with many of our greatest minds in internet guessing […]
