Women and men

So, I watched the movie Crooked Arrows Sunday night after the Super Bowl. If you like lacrosse or want to know just what the heck lacrosse is, I’d encourage you to see it. Otherwise, you’ve already seen this movie done better. (It was called Hoosiers.) At the beginning of the movie, the lacrosse team from […]

Movie politics

I’d added some Kate Beckinsale movies to my Netflix queue a few months ago, and this one finally made it to the top of my list and into the mailbox. “Nothing But The Truth” is loosely based upon the Valerie Plame “scandal.” The focus of the story is Beckinsale’s character, reporter Rachel Armstrong (whose rough […]

Dumb Hollywood

Tom Hanks is a fine actor. He’s also done a lot of good work on bringing some American history to the big and small screens – including “Band of Brothers,” and “John Adams.” But it appears as though his latest project is more of the typical Hollywood fare – America is evil and racist. But […]

The Lives of Others

A recent issue of National Review listed the top 25 "conservative" movies of the past 25 years. Number one on the list was "The Lives of Others," a German-language film that won the Oscar in 2006 for Best Foreign Film. I hadn't seen the film, and probably wouldn't have if it hadn't received such high […]

Mini movie review

Finally got around to watching "Eagle Eye" on DVD. Kinda fun movie, but there's nothing new under the Sun. The movie is a cross between "Enemy of the State" and "I, Robot" with just a dash of "Murder at 1600." All of which makes me think they were probably originally angling for Will Smith for […]

An American Carol

I caught the late matinee showing of David Zucker's latest film "An American Carol" this afternoon. I'm pretty sure that I was the youngest person in the audience by at least a decade. In a case of not knowing your audience, the last trailer before the movie started was for Oliver Stone's upcoming anti-Bush movie […]

Indiana Jones IV

As is my practice, I caught the last showing of George Lucas' "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." I'm not sure if it's the popularity of the flick or the fact that summer has started, but usually it's me and 3-4 other people at these showings. Tonight it was closer to a […]

Prince Caspian

I just returned from the theater and watching the latest installment of the C.S. Lewis series "The Chronicles of Narnia." "Prince Caspian" continues the adventures of the Pevensie children in Narnia, this time called back by the title character to help restore Narnia and reclaim his throne from his usurping uncle. While only a year […]
