The Five Coolest Guys 1990-2010

The Five Coolest Guys 1990-2010
  This ran last year.  If it were to be republished, we could probably add Steve McGarrett (the 2.0 version) to this list. Girls love him, and guys want to be him.  Australian Alex O’ Laughlin has brought back the cool TV cop. Entertainment Weekly Magazine just came out with it’s list of the 100... Read more »

Movie Review - Win, Win

Movie Review - Win, Win
by David Schuster Wow….two straight movies that I really liked. What’s the world coming to? First it was “Water For Elephants” and now it’s “Win Win” No, this is not a home made movie from the view point of Charlie Sheen. Rather it’s a charming and very well made flick about a small town lawyer... Read more »

My 11 Favorite Movies Directed by Sidney Lumet

My 11 Favorite Movies Directed by Sidney Lumet
Last Saturday, April 9, movie director Sidney Lumet passed away from lymphoma at the age of 86. Although not as famous as Scorsese, Coppola, Spielberg or other “name brand” directors, Lumet–who created quality movies, including a number of masterpieces, in six different decades–was one of my favorites. Back in the late ’80s, in a college... Read more »

Movie Review - Hanna

Movie Review - Hanna
by David Schuster Saoirse Ronan as “Hanna” Never have I seen such a range of reviews on a movie as I have with “Hanna” I have seen 4 stars (they must have been on acid) all the way down to zippo. And rarely have I ever totally agreed with Rex Reed but when it comes... Read more »

Movie Review - Battle Los Angeles

by David Schuster I don’t usually get to the initial showings of a movie but I had a chance to do so with “Battle: Los Angeles”. Not so surprisingly (especially with all the pre-release hype) the theater was relatively packed even though it was early in the day. And no doubt it will win the... Read more »

Movie Review - The Adjustment Bureau with Matt Damon

On the run
by David Schuster Had some time to kill between doing morning drive and a TV appearance in the afternoon so I took in a  double feature downtown. And, shame on me I paid for one but slipped into a second theater for free. I haven’t done that in eons and wonder just how many people... Read more »

Movie Review - Cedar Rapids

by David Schuster Reilly, Helms and Whitlock in “Cedar Rapids” A movie that has been getting little fanfare (but should be) is “Cedar Rapids” “Cedar Rapids” is actually two movies pumped into one. It’s both a comedy with some pretty good laughs but it’s also a story of a man who’s conscious and morality wins out over... Read more »

Movie Review - "The Way Back"

Movie Review - "The Way Back"
by David Schuster “The Way Back” is not about the Bulls getting back to national prominence…although that’s becoming a pretty good story in itself. Rather it’s a movie based on loose facts of a band of prisoners who escape from a Siberian gulag during World War II and walk 4,000 miles to freedom. And you... Read more »

Movie Review - The Dilemma with Vince Vaughn and Kevin James

by David Schuster Ryder, Connelly, Vaughn, and James Went to see “The Dilemma” the other day. No, the title isn’t about the Bulls having a shooting guard who can’t shoot or about the Bear’s deciding whether or not to give Lovie Smith an extension. Rather it’s about a guy who see his best friend’s  wife... Read more »

Eleven Famous Cars From the Movies

Eleven Famous Cars From the Movies
Having seen the new film adaptation of the “Green Hornet” TV show and its iconic car – the Black Beauty, I got to thinking (always dangerous) what are some of the most memorable cars seen in the movies? Most of these are fast cars,  or souped up cars with special gadgetry.  But when you think... Read more »
