Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale Movie Review

‘Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale’ is that rare holiday dark comedy that we loved like ‘Bad Santa’ for people who might have a more jaded view of that special time of the year. ‘Rare Exports’ pulls its story from the origin of Santa Claus who was more of a scary figure that kidnapped and killed bad children, but then was tidied up nicely for marketing by certain companies as the nice old man whose lap you have no problem putting your child upon.

The King’s Speech Movie Review

Colin Firth easily earned all the awards and praise for his role in ‘The Kings Speech’, a film that is the formulaic Academy Award friendly film that The Weinstein Company loves.. ‘The Queen’ seems to have started this inside look at the royal family and ‘The Kings Speech’ continues that tradition not long after Emily Blunt’s ‘Young Victoria’. All three are very fine films and a more jaded person would think that The Kings Speech was an insiders joke of all the aspects that make for a true Academy Award friendly film.

I had never really thought anything about Hugh Hefner, although as a little kid, I got to go to one of his Playboy clubs and remember vividly the women with the bunny ears and plushy on their butts, but it wasn’t until I was working on another film project that I got his help which was pretty cool. Hugh Hefner, Playboy, Activist and Rebel, gives him so good attention and shows the world a different side of him.

Journey Of The Universe and Conversations Documentary Review

Being a huge Discovery, History & H2 Channel watcher, Journey Of the Universe was a series right up my alley. I missed it when it aired on PBS (winning an Emmy for documentary) so it was great to be able to review it now. I’ve always been fascinated in where everything came from and how it really began.

I Love You Phillip Morris Starring Jim Carey Movie Review

‘I Love You Phillip Morris’ has had a long route to the screen, and sadly it will go just as quickly at the theaters even though it is one of Jim Carrey’s best performances to date. I’ve already mentioned the sad case of Hollywood Shelf Hell that plagued ‘I Love You Phillip Morris’ as the Jim Carrey Ewan McGregor starrer wound up embroiled in a distributor mess, but thankfully finally got resolved so it could be shown here in the United States, but the timing could be very off for the film since it gets a very limited release.
