MOVIE: HELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS

Where would we be without two-time Best Actress Oscar winner Sally Field and another of her indelible, quirky, wholly committed, utterly endearing performances? One glimpse of Field in the opening sequence as Doris Miller crying at her mother's funeral, wearing cat eye glasses and a big Minnie Mouse bow wrapped around a towering bun of hair-- and she had me at [...]

MOVIE: WICKED PISSAH BOSTON ACCENTS

By | January 24th, 2016|Comedy, Movies|0 Comments

OK. Seth Meyers is officially a genius. He's the heir apparent to Jon Stewart as comic provocateur and skewerer of all things worth skewering from politics and pop culture to the metastatic media coverage that follows. Seth has now broadened his reach to include movie criticism and sociolinguistics. Yeah, we know he's from New Hampsha, but he knows a Bahstin accent when he [...]

SUMMER MOVIES: INSIDE OUT/MAGIC MIKE XXL/A LITTLE CHAOS/INFINITELY POLAR BEAR

By | July 10th, 2015|Animation, Comedy, Drama, Family, Kids, Movies, Romance|1 Comment

I’ve seen a raft of films of late—some float, some I’d push overboard. Here’s a list, sink or swim: INSIDE OUT: Disney/Pixar’s latest is among its greatest animated offerings, a 3D computer-generated, comedy/drama. We get to see, literally, inside 11 year-old Riley’s head as her various thoughts and emotions battle for control, with an all-star cast as [...]

MOVIES: ALOHA/SPY

By | June 8th, 2015|Action & Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Movies, Romance|2 Comments

Here are two movies to lighten up a summer day-- ALOHA boasts a first rate cast BRADLEY COOPER, EMMA STONE, and RACHEL McADAMS in an offbeat Hawaiian love triangle written/directed by the quirky Cameron Crowe. At his best he gave us JERRY MAGUIRE and ALMOST FAMOUS and at his worst gave us ZOO. ALOHA falls somewhere [...]
