Grease
Is The Word

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.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman By Cameron Crowe

This is from the almighty Cameron Crowes website, "The Uncool" on Phillip Seymour Hoffmans performance of the midnight phone call scene in his autobiographical film "Almost Famous". PSH "My original take on this scene was a loud, late night pronouncement from Lester Bangs. A call to arms. In Phil’s hands it became something different. A scene about quiet truths shared between two guys, both at the crossroads, both hurting, and both up too late. It became the soul of the movie. In between takes, Hoffman spoke to no one. He listened only to his headset, only to the words of […]

Philip Seymour Hoffman 1967 – 2014 In Memoriam

  Fuck. Goddamn it man.... what a talent I'm at a loss for words. He was a fine actor. I don't know what he had to do to get those performances out... I don't know how it happened. I just read some trade magazine post that he only had 7 days if filming left on Hunger Games To which I say Fuck off. Who cares about footage. About a film. They will deal with it. Just like the fast and furious movies when Paul Walker passed. I didn't want to hear about the future of those films. These are men. […]

Jean-Marc Vallée's "Dallas Buyers Club", 2013 | A VoicesFILM Review

Let me start off by saying that I didn't know Matthew McConaughey could act this well. I'll be honest, I didn't give him much credit. 2 things recently have changed my mind on that foolish generalization on my part: First, HBO's new series "True Detective" which is hypnotic and remarkable...and I've only seen the first 2 episodes... Second, his work in this film, which will stay with me forever. Now Leto I knew had acting chops. I saw his work as Mark David Chapman in "Chapter 27", "Fight Club", "American Psycho" and have always recognized his dedication, talent and ability […]

Lone Survivor Review
By Dan Buffa

I'll be honest. Peter Berg's tribute to Marcus Luttrell, who was a part of a mission gone wrong in 2005 called Operation Red Wing, is as powerful as it gets and deserves every set of eyes this month as it gets released wide. I saw it in November and was knocked on my ass immediately. Here is my take and why it is the best thing I saw in 2013. Quick Setup-Mark Wahlberg stars as Marcus Luttrell, the author of the first-person memoir “Lone Survivor,” whose book has become a motivational resource for its lessons on how the power of […]

REVIEW: Spike Jonze "Her"

Spike Jonze "Her" | A VoicesFILM Review Dear God. I didn't see that ending coming. I have just seen Spike Jonze latest film, "Her". It floored me. This isn't what I expected at all. You watch the fluffy and attractive trailer and think: "Ahhhh. A new and interesting sweet love story." Listen. Spike Jonze wouldn't waste his time bringing you a nice little love story. This film is on par with the brilliant "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" from Michael Kondry & Charlie Kaufman. That film is still jacking me up and I saw it 10 years ago. Saying […]

Norman Jewison's "Moonstruck"

When I was young... "I never needed anyone... And making love was just for fun..." No. Seriously... When I was young, this film came out...1987, I was 13...and I wouldn't touch it man. I was allergic to it. I wanted nothing to do with a sappy, love story, Cher dancing with the moon movie. I was too busy watching Hitchcock's "Vertigo" and Scorsese's "Taxi Driver" at that point, building and developing my film vocabulary. I saw it. I ended up enjoying it. I forgot it. A few years later, my sister Fawn asks me one time... "Do you like "Moonstruck"? […]

George Miller's "The Witches Of Eastwick", 1987 | "Women" Scene | Video & Images

George Miller's "The Witches Of Eastwick", 1987 Jack - "Women" | Art, Trailer & Clip Writing my mondo The Dark Knight review the other day, I brought up... Happy New Year Again By The Way... I brought up Jack in Eastwick. Got me thinking of how on point he was in that film. My favorite scene, pure genius on his part, was when he...the Devil...is forced by the ladies...the witches...to take refuge from their wrath in a church as the ladies have him throwing up cherries and are attacking him with a wax voodoo doll because he has been abusing […]
