MOVIE: THE ACCOUNTANT– crunching more than numbers!

By | October 16th, 2016|Action & Adventure, Drama, Movies, Thriller|1 Comment

Ben Affleck as THE ACCOUNTANT is crunching more than numbers. This is a real departure for the actor as he brings to life an ass-kicking, Asperger's syndrome, math wiz working his way through an intense labyrinth of secrecy and surprise. The film is a refreshing and well-balanced mix of farflung elements: action, thriller, romantic comedy(!) family dysfunction, and a shout [...]

MOVIE: BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

By | March 26th, 2016|Action & Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Kids, Movies, Science Fiction|2 Comments

As attractive, well-crafted, and convincingly--even compellingly acted as BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE was, I couldn't stop thinking that one good conversation between our superheroes would have cleared the whole thing up. But then it dawned on me-- there would be no movie. Boys will be boys, so this screenplay goes a long way toward ramping [...]

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 [...]

MOVIE: GONE GIRL

By | October 3rd, 2014|Movies, Thriller|0 Comments

It's the one film I have been dying to see all year. I'm talking GONE GIRL, based on the best seller by Gillian Flynn who also wrote the screenplay.  I love a great thriller, love Ben Affleck and a beautiful woman, in this case a stunning Rosamund Pike who's riveting here. There's 145 minutes to get lost in, and [...]

A HEAD-SPINNING GOLDEN GLOBES 2013!

By | January 14th, 2013|Celebrity Interviews, Joyce's Choices, More A & E|0 Comments

My head's STILL spinning from Sunday night's 70th installment of THE GOLDEN GLOBES! What a wild night. BEN AFFLECK trumped the OSCAR snub by winning-- much to his and everyone else's amazement-- BEST DIRECTOR and BEST PICTURE (drama) for ARGO. He then forgot to thank producer George Clooney with whom he was sitting all night. [...]

OSCAR NOMINATIONS: SNUBS & HUGS

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 [...]
