OSCAR NOMINATIONS/MY TEN BEST OF THE YEAR

By | January 17th, 2014|Action & Adventure, Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Family, Kids, Movies, Musicals, Science Fiction, Thriller|2 Comments

The race is ON! Chris "Thor" Hemsworth helped hammer home the 86th Oscar nominations  with Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs and the results are pretty much as I expected: AMERICAN HUSTLE and GRAVITY tied for most nominations--10 each, followed by 12 YEARS A SLAVE with 9! What I'm delighted about? Matthew McConaughey. It's his year [...]

MOVIE REVIEW: THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN

By | November 14th, 2013|Drama, Movies, Musicals|1 Comment

THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN opens on a tight shot of a group of down-home, country bluegrass musicians performing "Will the Circle Be Unbroken." They may be "down home"--but not in the country you think. Though their English sounds flawless, they are actually Flemish musicians in Ghent 2006.  And that American country classic they're singing?  It's [...]

I set my alarm (as a late riser, I'm always on L.A. time) and was up at the crack of 8:30 to hear Emma Stone and this year's Oscar Host Seth MacFarlane announce the nominations-- when I was blown out of my breakfast nook by the stupefying news that Kathryn Bigelow and Ben Affleck were [...]

MOVIE REVIEW: LES MISERABLES

By | December 30th, 2012|Action & Adventure, Drama, Epic & Historical, Movies, Musicals|2 Comments

I have always loved this musical onstage, but was never so miserable as when I sat through all 157 minutes onscreen. LES MISERABLES--despite some exceptional musical performances--dies a torturous death by close-up at the hands of tone-deaf director Tom Hooper. "LES MIS" as we familiarly call it, is the theatrical extravaganza put to music by [...]
