Why I cried over Harry and the Hendersons.

I don't tend to admit this to a lot of people. For a long time I never wanted to show my weaknesses due to how some would judge me or use any weakness against me. These days, I'm pretty much an open book, baring my soul on this blog, and to close friends when I... Continue Reading →

Fresh Fruit

Ever since I was child I wanted to be a writer. It was an odd choice for me because I never enjoyed reading and received average marks in all of my English classes up until high school. I recall in middle school having an idea for a novel that was a play off The Neverending... Continue Reading →

Beautiful Fool

One of my favorite books is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, so naturally I also enjoy both movies based off of this work. In the more recent adaptation, Daisy (played by Carey Mulligan) was speaking with Nick Caraway (played by Tobey Maguire) about her daughter. She remembering asking the nurse if it was...

3..some?

This a similar but different post for me. I was watching a movie on Netflix that I thought I knew what I was in store for but it not only proved to be a great movie but also thought provoking. The movie is called 3 and it is yes and no about threesomes but let... Continue Reading →

A Better Tomorrow-Movie Review

I've been on a foreign movie kick lately and mostly Asian action thrillers.  I was searching through Netflix and came across this wonderful movie call A Better Tomorrow.  If you liked The Departed (which is a remake of the foreign film Internal Affairs), then you will love this movie. When his long-lost little brother Chul resurfaces, a... Continue Reading →

There was so much social commentary in this movie along with wonderful acting that you couldn't help but fall in love with this movie.  It did have slow moments and I have to admit there...

The Artist–Movie Review

Amazing!! So fresh in an industry that does mostly remakes and stock formula movies. This was a joy to watch and refreshing. So let's get the plot out of the way. Hollywood, 1927: A silent movie star George Valentin is on tops of his game, the biggest movie star in Hollywood. At a movie premiere, an... Continue Reading →

Patrik, Age 1.5. Gay movie review.

I have to say I am typically disappointed by most gay themed films.  If it’s not the bad acting, it’s the low budget or the need to glorify gay stereotypes to make a quick buck.  I was thrilled to receive this recommendation and enjoyed every minute of Patrik, Age 1.5. And the plot goes: After... Continue Reading →

Movie Review-The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (US)

I have to confess I have not read the Stieg Larsson's Millennium series trilogy but I did see the original Swedish version of the entire trilogy which was amazing. I had extreme reservations about an US remake especially with the way Hollywood decides to tell a story. I was sadly correct that the intimacy, subtle undertones and thrilling mystery delivered by director Niels... Continue Reading →
