Gary Oldman”
With Brother Sean

Recorded on the night of the oscars in 2018, my friend Brother Sean and I celebrate Gary Oldman’s Oscar Win for his performance playing Sir Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour (2017)”…
And gush over his career.
Simply one of the finest actors to ever grace the silver screen.

In Memoriam
I can’t believe I’m writing this post

“I never wanted,


To write these words down… for you.


With the pages…


Of phrases…


Of all the things…we’ll never do.


So I’ll blow out…


The candle,


And I’ll put you…to bed.


Since you can’t say to me now,


How the dogs broke your bone,


There’s just one thing left to be said…


Say Hello To Heaven”


– Chris Cornell, 1991

Michael Jackson
Thriller
Beat It
&
Billie Jean

Michael Jackson. 1983. If you were alive and aware, his impact and talent is undeniable. This is The music Video for Thriller, directed by John Landis, and the making of that historic video which still rocks today, 35 years later.

Michael Jackson, The Kng of Pop.

Comedy

Happy Thanksgiving
Planes, Trains And Automobiles

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. Thinking of this holiday inevitably brings this 1987 John Q’s classic comedy/drama to mind for me. Especially the final scene which I find so incredibly heartwarming here’s a little trivia for you Martin’s wife is currently in the fourth season of Homeland

Dumb And Dumber To
Why Jim, Why?

I guess Jim needed a new house…2015 will bring the world the sequel to the hugely successful “Dumb & Dumber”. Why you may ask…
I was wondering the same thing, but as Hal Holbrook said to Charlie Sheen in Oliver Stones “Wall Street”
“Bud, the main thing about money…it makes you do things you don’t want to do.”

Sports

Derek Begins…#4
Fred Schepisi’s
Mr. Baseball

“An arrogant aging ballplayer is traded to a Japanese team and has difficulties adjusting to their cultures and customs.
This movie by far has to be the most underrated on my list. Made in 1992, it featured baseball from a Japanese standpoint…”

In Memoriam
A Tragic Loss, Gone Too Soon

Why do we have to lose these actors who have injected our lives with such joy and humor to fully appreciate them?

Bill Paxton passed away today, and like Heath Ledger, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Williams, Carrie Fisher, David Bowie, Prince…it’s too damn soon man. Just tragic.

Love to his family friends and loved ones.

In Memoriam
Debbie Reynolds
&
Carrie Fisher
A Tragic Loss For The Family

Update: 12/28/2016: Debbie Reynolds, Carries mother, suffered a stroke and has also passed away.

Carrie Fisher personified the cinematic “Female Heroine” with her immortal portrayal of Princess Leia in the Star Wars film franchise.

I don’t know that she ever openly recognized that she was the quintessential female hero to her millions of adoring fans around the world.
She seemed to feel the role was more of a curse then a privilege.

But young girls around the world recognized it.
Women, men, children around the world recognized it.
And the world of cinema recognized it, was altered forever by it…
And she will be immortalized because of it.
