Home Street Home: A pretty good musical despite the contrived title.

There’s a lot of whining and forced moments, but it’s worth watching.

“Have you tried turning it off and on again?”

This hilarious British sitcom about the IT department of a big corporation is bloody brilliant.  If you’re not hooked by the first episode, your brain may be experiencing technical difficulties.


Who is the big bad bandit?

“You’ve been hoodwinked, baby!”

This animated whodunit is a glorious satire of the fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood.  The animation isn’t stellar, but the story makes up for it and will actually keep you guessing til the end.  Great fun with an all-star voice cast, I think it’s time to investigate this film further…

Faust works in Fashion

“I thought you would be different.  I said to myself, go ahead.  Take a chance.  Hire the smart, fat girl.”

A searing look at the fashion industry, anyone who has ever worked for anyone else will cringe at the way poor Andy Sachs is treated, feel relief that they’re not the target of such vitriol, and relish every second of it.  If you haven’t yet indulged, savor this diabolically entertaining flick starring the incomparable Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway as a girl who practically sells her soul to give her career a boost.

⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆! A hoot!

“This fuckery stops now!”

Actually the fuckery is nonstop from the moment this film begins all the way through the end credits and fortunately, it’s hilarious.  Brilliant in every way possible, this comedy is one of the best to come out in the last decade.

A must see = The Big C

“Listen, I’m a little pressed for time, so do you mind if I just pay for my stuff real quick and be on my way?  Thanks…  Hey, what the hell are you doing?”

“Sorry, I’m a little pressed for time too.  I have cancer.  So do you mind getting your shit off the counter so I can buy my Irises and plant them before I die?  Thanks.”

A comedy about cancer?  Okay, so it’s more of a dramedy, but don’t let that dissuade you from watching this expertly written series about a suburban housewife diagnosed with terminal melanoma.  This is not a sad show about a depressing illness.  It is a fun show about being happy even when everything sucks.  See how Cathy tackles her new circumstances with humor, passion, and an eagerness to experience all that life has to offer.

When this film was in production, interracial marriage was still illegal in 17 states in the USA

“Go into the office and make out a check for ‘Cash’ for the sum of $5000, then carefully, but carefully Hillary, remove absolutely everything that might subsequently remind me that you had ever been there, including that yellow thing with the blue bulbs which you have such an affection for.  Then take the check for $5000, which I feel you deserve, and get permanently lost.  It’s not that I don’t want to know you Hillary—although I don’t—it’s just that I’m afraid that we’re not really the people that you can afford to be associated with.  Don’t speak Hillary.  Just go.”

Katharine Hepburn at her very best.  AMAZING film.  Watch it.
