Just Another Day…

So you came by today because you want to know how I went 7 for 10 in my Golden Globe predictions right?  No?  Oh yeah, that ‘other thing’… I’ll try to knock this out quickly and in chronological order, frequently asked question format… Woke up, went for my Sunday run, came home, my stomach was […]

Golden Globes 2010 Predictions

2010 has gotten off to a crazy start, so I’m posting my Golden Globe predictions to start the week.  I doubt I’ll see any more of the films between now and Sunday, so away we go… Best Screenplay – Motion Picture Who I’d Like to Win: The Hurt Locker.  And I wouldn’t be surprised if […]


  Invictus tells the story of the 1995 South African rugby team.  Hyped up by the newly elected president of South Africa Nelson Mandela, the rugby team goes on a great run in the 1995 World Cup.  (I won’t ruin it for you if they won or loss; rugby is not my forte so the […]

Sherlock Holmes

  Sherlock Holmes is the latest character to get a ‘reboot’ for today’s generation in an attempt to start a new Hollywood franchise.  And in this case…I think they got it right (as a film, the box office will decide if it becomes a franchise of course).  Robert Downey Jr. continues to make all of […]

Up in the Air

  Written and Directed by Jason Reitman Starring George Clooney Jeremy Osbern – Rigging Lighting Techinician Michael Stoecker – Rigging Grip (and yes, Jeremy and Michael drove straight to St. Louis to work on this film from the set of my film so I’m shouting them out here) I’ll try to keep this one short […]

The Young Victoria

  Emily Blunt has been nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama for her turn as Victoria in The Young Victoria.   Let me start by saying this, if you have no interest in the ‘English period piece’ genre, this film won’t win you over.  If you love things in the Jane Austen vein, […]

The Informant!

  My sincerity has always been one of my calling cards; so it stands to reason that pathological liars are people I consider to be my polar opposite.  The best movie I’ve ever seen about people like this is still Shattered Glass; but The Informant probably deserves to be in the conversation now.  The film […]

500 Days of Summer

  The best movie I think I’ve seen so far this year was The Hurt Locker.  The most entertaining movie I think I’ve seen was 500 Days of Summer.  As the poster, the trailer, and the prologue all indicate, this isn’t a typical romantic comedy.  ‘The Guy’ in this one (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) believes […]

The Hurt Locker

  The Hurt Locker is probably the best film I’ve seen so far this year.  The story revolves around the three young men who make up Bravo Company, played by Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty, and Jeremy Renner.  The best film I’ve seen so far set in the Iraq War, Bravo Company has one primary job: […]
