The Beaver


So last night I saw a movie called The Beaver.  It wasn’t some stupid remake of Leave it To Beaver or some National Lampoon teen sex comedy like the name implies.  It was a really bleak, disturbing, & somewhat …

Emerald City

I think pretty much everyone born after 1940 has the 1939 MGM version of The Wizard of Oz stuck in as the definitive version of the story & so do I.  It’s a part of childhood & for me connected …

Somewhat Relevant: Crimson Peak

Crimson PeakI’d say I’m a fan of Guillermo Del Toro. So when I saw the trailer for a Victorian Era ghost story from him I was pretty excited.  If that’s what you are excited about, just stick with the trailer. As …

  1. I watch all kinds of movies, but seldom feel compelled to say anything, as you have said. This movie disturbed me on many levels, which is why I felt the need to comment. J K Simmons is a great actor. He played this character a little TOO well for me, at times. This movie reminded me of many aspects of life that I have dealt with far too often, such as: abusive fellow bandmates, family indifference, and even an abusive Boy Scout leader. Am I saying I am a wuss and can’t take it? Maybe. Watching something on screen that reminds me of aspects of my real life is not easy for me. Yes, I do think it is a great movie, but I will probably never watch it again.

Me & Breaking Bad

So I like Breaking Bad.  It’s one of my favorite shows of all time.  Tonight I watched the season premiere of the final set of episodes.  I haven’t seen the show in about a year since the last episode …
