How To Lose Friends and Alienate People (2008)

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

RottenTomatoes.com has it at 37%. I say that is about spot-on… I love Simon Pegg in most of his roles and say that he did as good a job as he could given what he had to work with. I never read the book on which this movie was based, so I can’t say how […]

Amos Lee: Last Days at the Lodge

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

I am not very familiar with Amos Lee and his catalog of music, but what I am hearing from his latest album “Last Days At The Lodge” are fairly mellow, R&B inspired songs that resonate with something personal to Lee.

Be Kind Rewind

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

“Be Kind, Rewind” by Michel Gondry was an imaginative adventure starring Mos Def, Jack Black, and Danny Glover. Being a fan of “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and Jack Black, I was expecting an off the wall comedy explosion with a unique narrative style.
