"NEBRASKA"--MOVIE REVIEW

It is fitting that "Nebraska" is filmed in black and white because it is something you would have seen on the small TV screen in the 50s. There is the bleak picture of America's heartland with nary a sign of a teenager and all the citizens are caricatures from Hollywood's pen.

The few modern touches…

"PHILOMENA"--A MOVIE REVIEW

Though famous on the English stage, TV and in English movies it wasn't until Judi Dench played M in the James Bond movies and received a supporting actress Oscar for playing Queen Elizabeth that America fell in love with her and hasn't stopped loving her, with her role in "Philomenia" only solidifying that…

"THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHIGN FIRE"--MOVIE REVIEW



Jennifer Lawrence has such an expressive face that you have to be sure it is her from one frame of film to the next. I am not a fan of films like "The Hunger Games" but her face and acting grabbed me in that first film just as it does in this sequel, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" which is the second of 4…

WHEN A MAN TURNS 30--HAPPY BIRTHDAY

I have been going over old blogs with intentions of deleting them when I came across this one that I wrote 7 years ago to a fellow blogger--he has come a long since 2006 and is leading a life by example for those coming up behind him!

Hopefully your 30s won't be as tumultrious as mine were but from what I have read, and talking to other men, it is 10 years of many changes.My 30s were a remarkable decade on a rollar coaster ride--I went from being a little fish in a HUGE pond to a HUGE…

SUMMER ISN'T OVER---YET

Though it had been there for years I didn't discover the Cafe Vico until I celebrated my 19th Leap Year in 2012 when I had a list of restaurants that I hadn't eaten in and wanted to visit. I reviewed it back then for yelp giving it 5 stars.

"12 YEARS A SLAVE"--A MOVIE REVIEW

In "12 Years A Slave" there is a scene between Platt/Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Patsy (Lupita Nyong'o that is startling, stark and will have your emotions all over the place. It is one of the very few scenes that delivers all the hype that the movie has promised. All in all I found the movie very…

HOW HALLOWEEN BECAME A GAY HOLIDAY PART 1

There is a distinct difference between cross dressers, drag queens and the neighbors who put a lamp shade on their head for Halloween. And neither catagory necessarily means the person is gay or has a sexual identity problem. I don't profess to be an expert on any of these subjects though I have…
