Angelina Jolie…One Of The Last Movie Stars

What up yo. There's a few movie stars left. Like, real movie stars. Movie stars don't have Twitter. They don't post on Facebook. They are mythic beings that live among us. Like Sean Connery. Like Bette Davis. Like Marilyn Monroe. Like Cary Grant. Like Steve McQueen. Like Madonna (yea I know. Shut up). Like George Clooney. Like Angelina Jolie. Something about Angie man. Everytime a new trailer comes out for this film, I post it. Not because I'm a Disney fan. Not because I even want to see it. But because Angie tears it up in every damn frame. Duke […]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Why I Think This Looks Awful

What up yo. I have about as much desire to see this film as I did "Batman And Robin". I didn't want to see one frame of that film. C.G.I. I don't think it's convincing , I don't think it's ready for prime time yet, I feel like filmmakers want us to believe it because it's saving them money and because they're able to do things they couldn't do in the physical realm...but unless it's James Cameron or Peter Jackson...I don't like it. I don't buy it. It doesn't look good. It's ruining cinema. Give me some old school, "The […]

Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

What Up Yo. Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Few performances are as flawless as Mickey Rourkes performance as Marv in the original "Sin City" were. This film has been a long time in the making and now there is an official release date for the follow up...August 22. Don't let me hold you up. SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR (2014) SIN CITY (2005): ARTWORK:

Duke Says "WATCH THIS NOW!" | "Afflicted", 2014

What up yo. So Duke has been riding me about watching this trailer. He sent it to me 5 days ago and since then has laid down suppressing fire of phone calls emails and text messages demanding I watch it. I'm not exaggerating. I gave in 20 mins ago and watched this trailer. Holy shit. This. Looks. Like. Bad. Fucking. Ass. Ambitious. Original. High. Octane. Diesel. Fuel. Drenched. Film. Making. My friend Duke.

Christopher Walken Will Farrell “Guys…I Could Have Used A Little More Cowbell."

EXPLORE THE SPACE What up yo. First, this is one of the best sketches SNL ever pulled off in my opinion. Second, a few things happen here...a chain reaction begins 3 mins in which catapults this skit instantly into classic SNL Skit status. It begins when Farrell kicks the mic stand over. If you watch closely you'll see... Horatio Sanz responding by backing up, stumbling, falling down and nearly taking down the entire drumset. It has begun. Then Chris Kattan, looking incredible with that pornstar mustache, aggressively grabs Farrell by the shirt and yells "Don't blow this for us Gene!!" […]

Steve McQueen's "12 Years A Slave" Wins Best Picture

Congrats to the winners, condolences to those who didn't win. They shouldn't be too discouraged. The Oscars are fixed. Any award show where the winner stands to profit millions of dollars is corruptible. The Academy Award has the distinction of being the crème de la crème of film awards. However more often than not, film excellence is not rewarded...playing the Hollywood game is. The truly innovative films, film makers actors and actresses who don't play by the rules, who prove to be too radical minded to be considered safe and sound representatives of the billion dollar empire that is Hollywood... […]

Fedor Bondarchuk's "Stalingrad", 2013

What up yo. I was catching up on a few new trailers last night & I went on over to HD-Trailers.net, which I consider to be the best source for high definition trailers on the net, & I caught this trailer. It rocked my face off. The film is called "Stalingrad". It's a Russian film, made on a budget of $30 mill, shot digitally (5K source) for IMAX 3D...the visuals look absolutely gorgeous. $30 mill. Dude. Michael Bay couldn't shoot this exact footage for $150 mill, and the film makers here made it work. Now, I haven't seen the film...I […]

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

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 […]

"Game Of Thrones" Ice And Fire: A Foreshadowing

What up yo. Here is a 15 minute preview of the upcoming Fourth season of Thrones. Winter Is Coming... Well, I'm a New Yorker. Winter has been here a while now with a fury this year. "Nature. Is. A whore." Kurt

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. […]
