Mini-Review - "Papillion" (1973)

I’m beginning to realize that I am not the biggest Steve McQueen fan.

Don’t get me wrong, I think McQueen is a one-of-a-kind actor. I’ve never seen anyone turn in a performance like him, in that his are often emotional, but also silent and distant. 239 more words

Vive L'Amour (rewatch)

This is likely to be the last movie I will watch as a single man.  Quite appropriate, considering how much the film is about singleness.  Three characters occupy the same apartment, but spend their time hiding from each other, failing to connect, or connecting in ways that are empty, one-sided, unfulfilling.   288 more words

[Review] San Andreas 3D (2015) by Bede Jermyn

I’m just going to come out and say it: I’m a pretty big fan of disaster films. I’m not quite sure what it is about this sub-genre of film that I get a get a kick out of, but I’ve always had a soft spot of them ever since I was young (TITANIC, THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE and THE TOWERING INFERNO are some of my favourites ones). 1,184 more words

Hot Tub Time Machine 2

You know how you want to laugh when you hear somebody fart in public, but you know you shouldn’t, so you just smile and grit your teeth until you hear somebody else laugh, and then you let out a torrent of giggles? 56 more words

Spielberg Film-by-Film: Duel (1971)

Third in a series

Late one night, long ago, I was driving my old Honda CRX 2-seater into Detroit to see a girl. I was exhausted, and I blasted the radio to stay awake. 1,167 more words
