Why “How I Met Your Mother” Is The Most Creative Thing On TV Right Now

If you think creativity no longer exists on TV, look again at “Your Mother”. Well not literally at your mother, but more at CBS’s final season of the greatest comedy of all time “How I Met Your Mother”.

Movie Sequels Hollywood Forgot

Some movies seem to have been made with sequels in mind. Franchises like “Star Wars” and “Harry Potter” inevitably had sequels since the story line was left hanging at the end of the original film. In some instances, such as the “Batman” and the “Friday the 13th” series, strong characters and episode-like feature films almost beg for sequels.

“Don Jon” Cometh

To the legions of porn fans around the world, the much-talked-about comedy and satirical must-see “Don Jon” will really hit the button. It stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Jon, a Jersey bartender who has a remarkable pornography addiction that threatens any real relationship he might otherwise enjoy. Fans of the ’90s sitcom “Third Rock from the Sun” may remember Gordon-Levitt as Tommy Solomon, one of the series’ main characters, an alien living in a teenager’s body.

September marks the end of the summer season for Hollywood, so gone are most of the popcorn flicks that fill the hottest months. In their place is a mix of animation, genre films, and lots of dramas.

“Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2” Is a Rare Sequel That Surpasses the Original

Flint (Bill Hader) is an enthusiastic young inventor who created the machine that wreaked havoc over his hometown of Swallow Falls in the original “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.” The machine, which he lovingly called the Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator (FLDSMDFR), malfunctioned and caused a deluge of food to rain down on Swallow Falls. The food, delicious as it was, was piling up too high, putting the lives of all the townspeople at risk.

“INEQUALITY FOR ALL” – A New Film Report

Why would I see this film? Certainly, I know that Robert Reich was at one time the Labor Secretary in Clinton’s first term as President. Reich held views then on the need to keep Middle Class workers producing. And although in my head I think Capitalism should reward anyone–who has the talent, brains/good fortune to figure out a way to earn vast sums of cash–the right to earn those sums of cash, in my heart of hearts there seethes a nagging struggle to accept the moral right for some to earn–say, billions–while large numbers of folks have been displaced from their workplace and can’t find other work.

Films That Race to the Finish

It used to be that films about car racing catered to a specific audience, mostly young and predominantly male.

With more complex plots and terrific action sequences, car racing films have grown in popularity in recent years.
