You’ll Be Able to Watch Them Right in Your Home

Back in the 1950’s 3-D movies were all the rage. Whenever a studio would release a new B-movie horror feature they were faced with the question of whether or not they would make the movie in 3-D or not. Showing a 3-D movie in the 1950’s was very hit or miss, as sometimes the technology would work and sometimes it would not.

Only Fools and Horses – Why is it So Popular?

Only Fools And Horses is one of the most popular British sitcoms ever made. Even though the show ended a few years ago it is still repeated all the time on the BBC and satellite channels because of it’s endearing popularity. So why is this TV series so popular?

Movies – Rendition (2007)

Anwar Al-Ibrahimi, an Egyptian-American chemical engineer with a Green Card, is apprehended by the CIA on his return flight from a conference in South Africa. Why? Because his phone records showed that he received cell-phone calls from Rashid Salimi, a well-known terror mastermind.

Movies and TV – Ron Howard – A Tribute

Double-Oscar winning actor/director Ron Howard is one of those rare child actors that made it very good indeed. Howard started acting when he was just a little boy with the active encouragement of his father who was a part of the New York TV scene. When the TV business started to sag, the family packed up their 1952 Plymouth and resettled in California. Howard’s career turned a corner when he landed the role of the “son” in The Andy Griffith Show.” He was just 6 years old.

Walk Hard – A Retro-Styled Philosophy?

I’ve seen Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story with a great John C. Reilly. It is a parody movie, a spoof of every musical biopic where John as music star Dewey Cox covers every musical style from Elvis to the Beach Boys over five decades. Dialogue and sequences are funny and goofy and the jokes never are boring. Since this is not exactly a review, I won’t tell more about the movie. What I would like to focus on is the philosophy behind the movie.

Ghajini Vs Ghajini – The Heroes

Previously I had made comparisons between the Tamil and Hindi versions of Ghajini with respect to their music. Now, it’s time to get down and dirty and compare the heroes of the two movies – Aamir Khan and Surya. One is an established actor of Bollywood.

Movies – “The Kingdom (2007)”

A fast moving Iraq-War-era military action thriller. An FBI team is sent to Saudi Arabia for a 5 day trip to investigate the head of a terrorist network who killed two FBI agents. Special Agent Ronald Fleury (Jamie Foxx) heads the team rounded off by a hand-picked team of professionals: Grant Sykes (Chris Cooper), Janet Mayes (Jennifer Garner), and Adam Leavitt (Jason Bateman). On the Saudi side, Colonel Faris Al Ghazi (Ashraf Barhom) who escorts the FBI team in Saudi completes the cast.

Movies – “The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)” – A Top-Notch Action Thriller

“The Bourne Ultimatum” is not only non-stop spy action flick but also it’s an excellent example of a thriller – a man is on the run for 3 years trying to find out who he is. He is a former CIA agent who volunteered for a top-secret program. Then things did not go as planned and Jason Bourne became a hunted man. I’ve never seen the kind of jumping from the roofs and driving off the roofs scenes in any other film.
