Of Monsters and Movies

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the sound of profound realization. The importance of score and/or soundtrack to a film are hardly under dispute. Since it is better to show rather than tell, the point is beautifully illustrated here, in a scene from E.T. sans John Williams magic. (sorry about the ads but Google needs their [...]

Dream Girls

After recently watching episode 4 and 5 in the critically acclaimed series “Louie”, I can’t help but have my mind absolutely blown. Some people have been dismissing it by simply saying it is his experience with asking out a deranged woman. This is not the case. I had my mind blown. Sure being 16 will [...]

A Han by any other name…

So we were all three sitting in a circle on our living room floor playing with our Star Wars action figures making pew-pew sounds.

The story is made appealing with humorous touches [...]

Big Kid Art

I found myself in attendance of an art show at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego. Taking a break from pondering the concept of Mutual Exclusivity, I remove my nose from the air and actually peruse the offerings of this small band of creatives. A round of the usual suspects no doubt. You got your [...]

Rick’s Flicks – Looper

Loopers! An awesome Story with paradoxes aplenty. Of course there are time travel paradoxes but they pale in comparison to the paradoxes in the relationships between the characters. Looper’s intriguing storyline is told so well it trumps the cool special effects in this sic-fi human drama. Though Emily Blunt’s character doesn’t show up until the [...]
