Bright Eyes "Lua"

I had to add the lyrics to this song below for my legions of imaginary fans to soak up. This song in its subtle lyrical genius rocked my face off. I use to randomly pick out one line at a time and throw it up on my Facebook page, and without fail, people would read it and comment something to the effect of... "Wow" Or "Beautiful" Or "Hey Wes, who wrote this" Or "I'm sorry I tried to steal your "Return Of The Jedi" Speeder Bike toy when we were kids..." Because the song is hauntingly, beautiful and perfection. I […]

Bright Eyes "At The Bottom Of Everything"

What up yo. I was out of work 5 years back. Found a blog by a girl from New York City. She was from the Midwest, had a drug problem and came here to Metropolis to be in Fashion School and to model. Damn it, I wish I could remember then name of her blog. She would write these long articles about missing this guy, missing that guy, going online to chat rooms and meeting guys who always ended up exposing themselves to her. It was a good read. Anyway, She listened to kick ass music. I discovered "The XX" […]

American Hustle | Yea…It’s That Good

David O. Russell creates another ensemble piece that has magic in every corner. The script is stellar , the cast is a knock out & the performances from Bale, Cooper, Lawrence and Adams are fantastic.

Harold Ramis 1944-2014 In Memoriam

I want to send out love to the Ramis family, we all lost an immense talent today. He wasn't just funny, he was hard working and brilliant. Ramis wrote and directed many of the quintessential comedy films that would go on to influence and change Hollywood's understanding of the entire comedy movie genre and what potential it could have. The films he made would launch many careers and would inspire the next few generations of Hollywood's a-listers. The news of his passing is sure to devastate many in the film community. Take a look at a few of the films […]

House Of Cards Season 2 The Voices Review

Michel Gill. I walk away from watching the second season of the brilliant Netflix series "House Of Cards", and immediately I wanted to write about supporting actor Michel Gill. He did an amazing standout job playing the role of Garrett Walker, The President of the United States. There are some simply incredible performances throughout this series. The 2 leads, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, are razor sharp here... Spacey is more at home this season, but he was on point the first season also....as was Wright. Here, they are now a combined force. They are Fierce, loyal to each other […]

Joy Division’s Transmission From Anton Corbijn's Control

I could go off here for a while about the beauty of Anton's eye, how he paints with images, how the black and white photography in this film shot by cinematographer Martin Ruhe is gorgeous and the entire film looked like silk to me, but I'm sitting in a parking lot banging this out on my iPad and I need to get back home. But listen. I didn't know much about Joy Division before watching this film. Then as it progressed, and because I have this crush on all things Great Britain (I'm going home to my British SwePea), I […]

Kevin Spacey & Robin Wright "House Of Cards" Season II

I have finished the first episode of season 2. The following 2 thoughts raced though my mind. "Wow." "Razor - Fucking - Sharp." Slick. Rock and roll. Gasoline. It moves like a runaway train. Better do your homework on season 1 before you start. No spoon feeding here. Waiting the entire episode for Kevin Spaceys Frank Underhill to turn around and look at us. He doesn't. Not till he's done with his agenda for episode 1. A few times during the episode I was reminded of the harshness of the characters that we had become familiar with from season 1. […]

The "Mama-Son" tape refers to the instrumental containing versions of what would become "Once" "Alive" & "Footsteps". Eddie Vedder received the tape from his friend, former Chili Peppers drummer and future short-term PJ drummer (Yield) back in 1990.

Grease

Grease the film musical starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John was a blockbuster in the theaters in 1978, and is simply iconic 40 years later. A feat very few films an claim.

Dylan Farrow Responds To Woody Allen

Dylan Farrow originally posted a scathing account of sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of Woody Allen when she was 7 on February 1, 2014 to New York Times columnist Nicholas D. Kristof's blog. I've re-posted and commented on both Dylan's letter and Woody Allen's response. Woody says it's all lies. He spends much of his letter focusing on Mia Farrow, not on his adopted daughter Dylan. This speaks volumes to me. If Allen is telling the truth and is innocent of the charges, or if he is guilty of the heinous crimes, the one common denominator is that […]
