Redbelt

When I hear the name David Mamet, the word that comes to mind is genius.

After four years away from motion pictures, he returned with a vengeance with the martial arts film Redbelt.

Mamet had previously focused his talents on his CBS series “The Unit” and you will recognize a couple cast members from that show in this film.

However, the fine ensemble cast are the icing on a cake that provides a plot that twists and turns to unexpected but intriguing story lines... leading to a thrilling but unexpected conclusion.

The storyline:

Chiwetel Ejiofor plays a jujitsu instructor who barely makes ends meet. His Brazilian wife, whose family promotes fights, wants to see him in the ring making money, but to him competition desecrates the honor of the martial art. We later meet Tim Allen as an action movie star befriends Chiwetel’s character, gives him a gift, offers him work on his newest film, and offers his wife a lucrative business opportunity. It all looks great... until it turns out that it is not.

That is the basic storyline... but we, of course, had to leave out some of the exciting plot twists that make this movie edge-of-your-seat viewing. And it looks even better in BlueRay!

Add Redbelt to your list of must see movies!

Oink?

Christina Ricci as a blue-blood heiress with a pig’s snout on her face?

That is the idea behind the motion picture Penelope, a modern-day fairy tale with a bit of a twist.

Also, if you are a fan of Peter Dinklage... then this is (in our humble opinion) one of his best performances.

Then... there is the surprise appearance by Reese Witherspoon that you will absolutely love!

Check out Penelope today!

Hi Ho!

Most people, when they hear the name Snow White, they think of the classic Disney cartoon with the cute dwarves... or, perhaps, they think of the live action remake, Snow White: The Fairest of Them All. You might even think of Olympic figure skater Carol Heiss in Snow White and the Three Stooges. But, have you seen the horror fantasy telling of this story with Signorney Weaver and Sam Neill?


Snow White: A Tale of Terror is a film that takes the original Grimm Brothers’ story of a young woman who is disliked by her stepmother to a thrilling new level. And, it does it better than one might have imagined.

Check this film out!

$317,200 Comic Book!


I read in The New York Daily News about a rare comic book that sold for $317,200.

Reminds me of a conversation with a friend who was throwing away her son’s comics.

I told her that a comic I treasured, “Lois Lane: Super Brain,” was valued at nearly $50,000... but that my mother threw it away... effectively throwing tens of thousands of dollars away.

She shrugged and threw out her son’s comics, anyway.

Maybe that is why they are so valuable... mothers have the uncontrollable need to throw them away.

Maybe we need a government-sponsored study of this strange behavior.

Hmm... how can I get an earmark?

R.I.P. Ron Silver


We were saddened to read in Variety that the awesome actor has exited the planet at the age of 62. He will be missed.

AIG: Another Imbecilic Goof

Shocking, but not surprising, that AIG... the proverbial straw that broke the world’s economic backbone and was awarded $170-billion in taxpayer money, is giving its executives $165-million in bonuses.

Pictured above is Edward M. Liddy, the government-appointed chairman of A.I.G. Liddy argued that paying bonuses helps A.I.G. to keep the most skilled executives.

Read the full story at The New York Times.

Cell Phone Sweepstakes

When I was a kid, game shows were huge. Like, “The Price is Right” or “Wheel of Fortune.” And everyone I knew dreamed of an opportunity to stand on the set with Alex or Vanna or one of those personalities and answer the big question that would have us driving home in a brand new car… or going on vacation to some exotic locale.

Well… a lot of people enter other sweepstakes… like the Publisher’s Clearinghouse. The idea is to win big bucks by playing. But now that we are in the 21st Century… there is a modern method of playing to win big bucks.

There is a web site that sponsors contests that you can participate in using your cell phone. Yep, that’s right! Just by sending text messages you can win great prizes such as:

  • The Nokia N96 smartphone with the Symbian operating system and the S60 user`s interface

  • The ever-popular Nintedo Wii gaming console

  • A mini Notebook computer with an amazing seven-hours of battery life

  • The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto, a stylish, multi-coffee capsule system that gives you better-than-Starbucks drinks in your home or office

Right now, you can go on-line and play the cell phone sweepstakes atSMSnia.com!

Dead Like Me: Life After Death

Showtime had it right when they green-lighted the dark comedy “Dead Like Me.”

Dead Like Me was the penultimate dark comedy featured the story of a slacker teen who gets killed by a piece of space junk that reenters earth’s atmosphere. Now among the undead walking the earth, she is drafted to join the ranks of reapers whose job involves reaping the souls of those whose number has come up.

Okay, so it is a very dark comedy. A dark, dark comedy with lots of laughs from an ensemble of characters that have great chemistry.

And what a great cast. Fresh from Dolores Claiborne, you had Ellen Muth alongside veteran players Mandy Patinkin, Callum Blue, Rebecca Gayheart, and other great actors who create amusing and memorable characters.

But alas, the powers that be at Showtime killed this great show after two seasons... and despite an on-line petition signed by thousands of fans.

But the show didn’t stay dead forever. A made-for-home-video movie returned most of the original cast for a new and hilarious adventure.

Dead Like Me: Life After Death continues the adventures of Georgia Lass, the misanthropic college dropout, the family that tries to get their lives together after her loss, and the group of reapers who have to deal with a new boss and even crazier misadventures.

If you enjoyed the series... you will want to see Dead Like Me: Life After Death, which become the first of many follow-up movies to the late Showtime series. However, if you have never seen the series, you can also see both seasons...
