Movies Slumdog Millionaire Movie Shot

I’m currently on a business trip to Sin City—aka Las Vegas—to attend this year’s 2009 CES (Consumer Electronics Show). I haven’t been to Vegas in a number of years now after having been here countless times in the past. It lost its allure long ago for me. We have gambling in Atlantic City and that’s […]

Movies The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Movie Shot

Well, my skiing didn’t get much better on Sunday than it had been on Saturday and part of that was due to lousy conditions for our first visit to Windham Mountain in New York. It looks like the kind of place I’d like if the weather would have cooperated. However with temperatures pushing 60 degrees […]

Movies Zack and Miri Make a Porno Movie Shot

Just saw the latest in yet another “Apatow-like” string of movies— Zack And Miri Make A Porno. It again has nothing to do with Judd Apatow, but has the many of the same actors whom seem to be forming their “Rat Pack”-like group of late. This one stars Seth Rogen (a major force in these […]

Movies Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist Movie Shot

This week I’ve been a bit busy (plus the Phillies won the World Series) so I forgot about having seen Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. That comment alone is not one that suggests lots of upcoming positive praise. This is another in a growing list of movies trying to be like all the other Judd […]

Movies Rachel Getting Married Movie Shot

The first movie of the week is Rachel Getting Married. The film stars Anne Hathaway as Kim, a troubled young woman returning home from some sort of incarceration just in time to experience the chaos of planning and preparation going on there for her sister Rachel’s wedding the following day. Rachel is played wonderfully by Rosemarie […]

Movies Ghost Town Movie Shot

On Saturday the family went to see Ghost Town, the new movie starring English actor Ricky Gervais with Greg Kinnear and Tea Leoni. Most people under 30 know Gervais as he’s often a guest on shows like The Daily Show. His biggest claim-to-fame is that he created the hit TV show, The Office, for English […]

Movies Vicky Cristina Barcelona Movie Shot

We saw Woody Allen‘s latest film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona this past weekend and it was a very enjoyable affair. Woody writes dialog better than most writers out there and this film was no exception. It’s my favorite Allen film since, Hannah and Her Sisters which remains my favorite of all his works. The stars include Scarlett Johannson […]

Movies The Forbidden Kingdom Movie Shot

This past weekend we ventured out to see, “The Forbidden Kingdom”. It’s a new martial arts movie starting Jackie Chan and Jet Li. The story is about a teenager who’s heavily into martial arts movies and lore (but not actually into the actual physical side of it) and befriends an elderly pawn shop owner in […]

Movies Forgetting Sarah Marshall Movie Shot

A heart-broken musician heads to Hawaii to escape his breakup in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Let me say right now that my least favorite part of this movie is its title. It’s the most forgettable part of the film. The story comes to us from it’s lead actor Jason Segel who we’ve seen in lesser roles […]

Movies Married Life Movie Shot

A quirky 1940s businessman comes up with a novel approach to solve he and his wife’s problems in Married Life. Poor Harry Allen (Chris Cooper) lives each day having to endure his beautiful, adoring wife Pat (Patricia Clarkson) all the while knowing he no longer finds their relationship exciting. Then one day he meets an attractive […]

Movies Atonement Movie Poster

Caught Atonement this weekend which means I’ve now managed to see all five of the Oscar nominees for Best Picture. This one is a solid selection. This is a movie whose previews were a bit misleading regarding the plot, at least for me. It’s the story of how someone, especially a child, can misconstrue what it […]
