Scene Spotlight: Changing seasons – Notting Hill

I've been having a serious case of Spring fever of late – as practically everybody in my neck of the woods – as we seem to be skipping March and goes directly to May. The Twin Cities have had NO SNOW the entire month, not even any real wind chill to speak off. I mean, …

Upcoming Flix Spotlight: The Tourist

It's too early to start my Top Ten Anticipated 2011 Flicks, but this one will surely be on that list. I'm certainly psyched more for the supporting cast than the leads. When I first heard about it as far back as last November, it was still a 'revolving-door' sort of project with directors and cast …

Happy Belated Birthday, Timothy Dalton!

Thanks to Andy from Fandango Groovers who reminded me that last Sunday 3/21 was Timothy's 66th birthday. In honor of the actor, the James Bond enthusiast blogger posted this brilliant idea about a revolutionary James Bond flick starring Mr. Dalton as the older British spy, with Colin Farrell as 006 and Quentin Tarantino at the …

Scene Spotlight: ‘The Grand Entrance’ – The Count of Monte Cristo

Hello, welcome to the first edition of Scene Spotlight. I was looking at this old post I did back when this blog first started, where I list 20 movie scenes I could watch over and over again, and I thought why not make it a regular post? I'm thinking a couple of times a month. …

Top Ten Chat-Worthy Irish Actors

I haven't done a top-ten list in a while. I meant to post this last week around St. Paddy's day, but took me a while to finish it. Well, as the green dye in the Chicago river hasn't completely washed out, I hope you don't mind reading another Irish-related post. Here's my list of ten …

The Bounty Hunter review (a.k.a. my open letter to Gerard Butler)

From the first time I heard about this project at its conception last year, I wasn't psyched that my fave actor once again entered rom-com territory. Not because he isn't funny or charming enough to pull it off, but after the abysmal The Ugly Truth, the script is likely going to be another stinker. TUT …

Anticipated Flix Updates: The Expendables’ new poster & Coriolanus’ Concept Art

The Expendables Normally this isn't my go-to genre, but hey I did grow up with 80s and 90s action flicks starring most of actors that make up the cast. I first heard about it earlier this year that I just had to blog about it, and now a new poster's been released that is as …

Conspicuous Trailer of the Week: The Switch

I first heard about this flick when I blogged about Jason Bateman last September when it was still called The Baster. Yeah, no doubt they went with a 'safer' title though it sounds so generic now (there are eight other movies with that exact title on IMDb!). .... The plot: An unmarried 40-year-old woman (Kassie) …

St. Patrick’s Day Flix Spotlight: Circle of Friends

Hello readers, are you wearing green today? I'm not the least bit Irish but hey, everyone's Irish on March 17, right? At least that's what this Guinness Storehouse sign in Dublin says 🙂 Well, I was going to post a clip of a movie with the word 'green' on the title, as there are quite …

DVD Picks: Easy Virtue and A Good Year

Easy Virtue I've wanted to see this when I saw the trailer early last year, but wasn't fast enough to make it to the theater. Adapted from Noel Coward's 1924 play, it's a comedy that pokes fun at the stifling British upper class. Jessica Biel stars as a feisty American divorcee Larita who re-marries a …
