The meta-punking of Dan Lee/Tablo

The Stalking of Korean Hip Hop Superstar Daniel Lee I first read about Dan Lee/Tablo in Stanford Magazine, but the new additions to the Dan Lee story become even stranger since he’s married to Kang Hye-jung who is the main actress in the Korean film Oldboy. The themes of identity and revenge between the Dan … Continue reading »

Hutcherson needs Cruise lifts

Someone needs to get Josh Hutcherson some Tom Cruise lifts for the publicity shots with Jennifer Lawrence. The casting of Peeta has really bugged both Ally and me since Peeta’s supposed to be a big stocky guy who can lift 100 pound sacks of flour. I liked Hutcherson in the Bridge to Terabithia and The … Continue reading »

Ripley’s jumpsuit from Alien

Rewatched Alien last night due to all the hype for Prometheus. Although one of the memorable parts of the film is how great Sigourney Weaver looked in her underwear, I noted for the first time that the jumpsuit she wore has some very interesting corset like lacing on the back. Was Moebius the designer for … Continue reading »

Wes Anderson’s Hyundai Ad

I’m 45 and I get the Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang, Herbie (I thought of the Spy Who Loved Me first), and Speed Racer references in this ad. I wonder how many 30- and 20-somethings will get it, let alone teenagers. If only 1/10th of my life was as quirky as a Wes Anderson movie

The Grifters

The Grifters (film) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. I love movies about cons and grifters, so I’m happy I finally watched this movie. Annette Bening was so young and Marilyn Monroe sexy in this film. You always wonder what the top grifters in the world would be able to do if they devoted their smarts … Continue reading »

The Chaser

The Chaser (film) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This movie brings you to the edge of hope, and then brutally destroys it. I found this film worth watching though, mainly because of Kim Yoon-seok’s anti-hero character.

The Ward is a horror movie for the Lifetime Channel

I watch John Carpenter movies because I loved Escape from New York, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, and They Live. I also admire how he scores his own movies, particularly the memorable theme from Halloween. I keep hoping a new John Carpenter movie will be as fresh as his hits from the 70s … Continue reading »

Could two famous movie stars keep an illegitimate daughter secret today?

Judy Lewis, Secret Daughter of Hollywood, Dies at 76 With the hordes of paparazzi, TMZ, People, and The National Enquirer, there’s no way someone like Judy Lewis could be kept a secret today. It’s crazy to me the subterfuge Loretta Young went through to hide a pregnancy and then to put her daughter in an … Continue reading »

Bladerunner was not a success when it first opened at the movie theaters

In Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson, he mentions that Ridley Scott was coming off the success of Bladerunner when he was chosen to direct the 1984 ad for Apple. The error with this statement is that Bladerunner was a commercial and critical failure when it first came out in 1982. It wasn’t until later … Continue reading »

Sally Hawkins is a goofy Kate Beckinsale

I saw Happy-Go-Lucky earlier this week, and I felt it was a good indie movie that didn’t wear itself thin. Sally Hawkins has a goofy and gawky charm which makes her more endearing than Kate Beckinsale with her more refined manner and features, but they look so much alike that they could easily be sisters. … Continue reading »
