No, Thank You Spike!

Nope wasn’t in the room Saturday night, I was (literally) down the street. But thank you internet (and the Academy) for letting us see this.  I’m big on letting people know you appreciate them while they’re here to feel your appreciation. Your East Coast bias aside Spike, I can personally attest to two of the […]

Director’s Commentary

  Before we get too far away from it… ‘Santa’s Third Wheel’ was (barely) finished before Christmas, I put it out here (and there and everywhere), and you guys liked it, shared it, retweeted it, gave me and everyone involved a ton of compliments.  Thank you.  As I told some of my conspirators when I […]

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

  The latest chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been called the one closest to a ‘real movie’.  I get that.  Captain America: The Winter Soldier lets us catch up with Marvel’s resident Boy Scout in a post Avengers world.  Disclaimer for those who don’t know, when it comes to Marvel, I’m a complete ‘casual […]

Jackson.  Good news, I’m another narrator.  Perhaps, the best known narrator.  His voice, known by […]

My Relationship with Natalie Portman (the Musical)

  So how was my first run on an L.A. stage?  It’s been great.  Truly.

You […]

Mother and Child

  With The Fighter being a possible exception, the best cast film I’ve seen from top to bottom to come out in the past 12 months has been Mother and Child. The film’s story is centered around three strong female performances: Annette Bening as a middle aged woman who gave up a child at 14 […]
