Musings on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Pilot

Finally got around to watching this one as I missed the pilot on Tuesday. I was initially anticipating this but honestly, I kind of forgot about it for a while. You gotta hand it to Marvel studios in their shrewd strategy in marketing/releasing their films. The Avengers stands as the highest-grossing superhero blockbuster of all …

Music Break: Marion Cotillard’s musical segments in NINE

I was browsing Netflix Instant yesterday when I saw the cover of NINE flashed by. I remember seeing that film a few years back and I even reviewed it. Overall I wasn't fond of the film, it felt extremely indulgent and vapid. Despite Daniel Day-Lewis' best effort and the spectacular female cast, Rob Marshall's musical …

Spotlight on Bill Murray & my Top Five Favorite Roles

It was Bill Murray's birthday this past Saturday, he turned 63. I know it's a bit late but I can't resist making a tribute to the comedian whose practically a legend.

FlixChatter Review: PRISONERS

When I first saw the trailer of Prisoners, I thought it looked like a made for TV movie that you'd see on TNT or some cable network. So I didn't really have much interest in seeing it on the big screen, well after reading several high praised reviews online, I changed my mind. The movie …

Happy Birthday Jeremy Irons + James Lipton! Watch their conversation in Inside the Actor’s Studio

Jeremy Irons turns 65 and James Lipton, the host of Inside the Actors Studio, turns 86 today. I've always been fascinated by the 60-min interview because it feels more relaxed and intimate and you really get to know the actor Mr. Lipton is conversing with. And that's the thing, it feels more like a guest …

Question of the Week: Are you looking forward to AVATAR sequels?

It just dawned on me that it's been over four years since AVATAR was released. I remember it was quite a big deal back in 2009. I remember getting advanced screenings (this was before I was on the press list, mind you) and I was soooooo excited! I even had a countdown post like I …
