“Not Fade Away”

This movie that predominantly takes place in Northern New Jersey is interesting. The main character Doug resembles a young Bob Dylan. This is the movie directorial debut of The Sopranos creator David Chase. James Gandolfini portrays Doug’s very blue collar Italian father. The music score is by Steven Van Zandt. Doug and his friends struggle to get band going after they heard and watched the debut music of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

Love Doesn’t Exist For Everyone Deserving

I have been officially in love before. But when that what I thought was fails, I learned that love doesn’t and probably will never come in my direction. My female friends, gay guy friends, and my straight guy friends have all said that it’ll come when I least expect it. I’m not looking for love, I’ve been screwed over one too many times in general. ALL straight men in general ONLY want a skinny woman. It’s a proven fact! It’s easily proven because all straight men in relationships are ALL with skinny women. I know that I’m not a bad … Continue reading Love Doesn’t Exist For Everyone Deserving

Why We Fear Putting Our Babies In School

In Connecticut a young man went into his mother’s kindergarten classroom after he had killed her and killed all the children. About 20 children were killed in this tragedy. Many people blamed President Obama, but this incident is NOT his fault! In America, all guns are easily attainable. People get killed more often in situations such as their homes, work, school, just everyday activities than in any other country in the world. As a mother, I’d do anything to protect my babies, but in this case where society forces our kids to be educated in schools verses at home, I … Continue reading Why We Fear Putting Our Babies In School

“Gangster Squad”

Well the title isn’t about Snoop Dogg! This movie that I got to screen a month in advance is based on the true story of a Jewish mob leader in the late 1940’s who was taking over Los Angeles by means of crime and drug smuggling. The mob ring leader is Cohen whom is played by Sean Penn, who’s playing a Jew again (Harvey Milk is Jewish). The movie takes place around Christmas time in Los Angeles when a determined Sergeant (Brolin) is to bring Mickey Cohen down. He creates his own gang of fellow police officers by the suggestions … Continue reading “Gangster Squad”

“The Hobbit”

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” was too bright in color. Saw this in 3D here in San Francisco. Martin Freeman plays a younger Bilbo Baggins. Gandalf enlists Bilbo on a journey with the Dwarves who have lost their kingdom and are enroute to get it back from the Orcs. Along the way they endure a journey that Bilbo questions and so does the Thorin the Dwarf King (Unofficial) about him too. About 2 hours into the movie, Bilbo encounters Gollum where he attains the ring that had fallen out as he was dragging an orc to kill and eat. The … Continue reading “The Hobbit”

Les Miserable at Lucas Arts

I saw “Les Miserables” with my friend Jeremy Brickner (not exactly a date because he’s gay) at Lucas Arts in the Presidio here in San Francisco. No one in the cast is really French! And this movie was made in England not France! Hugh Jackman sings almost through the whole movie. Russel Crowe as Inspector Javer is not a good singer so I’d have to deduct some points for that. Anne Hathaway as Fantine gives a tearful performance of “I dreamed a dream”. Amanda Seyfried as Cosette sings in a soprano octive. Eddie Redmayne as Marius actually does a great … Continue reading Les Miserable at Lucas Arts
