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 »

Paradise Found - a Hawaii Five-O blog

Caroline Dhavernas and Nicholas Gonzalez as Dr. Brenner and Mateo (ABC Photo) Apparently last week was the season finale for “Off the Map.” I won’t claim to have penned the line that the biggest cliffhanger may be whether the show returns for season two, but I will second that notion.  So we are left with...

Movie Review - "Arthur" with Russell Brand

by David Schuster It might have been telling that of the two movies that featured Russell Brand that came out last weekend it was the animated movie that garnered more money. Yes it was “Hop” that pulled in more cash then “Arthur”. But since many consider Brand to be a cartoon like character maybe it... 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 - Your Highness

The evil wizard Leezar.
One critic wrote of “Your Highness,” “What if you wrote a comedy and nobody laughed?”  Granted, there were only half a dozen others in the theater, but they were laughing along with me.  He also wrote “McBride is dull. Franco does his best to invoke ridiculous overacting.”  Some people just don’t get it.  That’s the... Read more »

DVD Review - Scott Pilgrim vs the World

Every so often a movie comes along that you know will become a cult classic.  A perfect example is “The Big Lebowski.” It had an assortment of quirky, yet loveable characters, a crazy, but fascinating plot, and some compelling action. Scott Pilgrim vs the World will probably be another one of those kinds of movies. ... Read more »

Movie Review - "Paul"

This is hardly your typical “fish out of water” story, when the two fish are a pair of Brits on holiday in the US, and the “normal” person is an alien who crash landed here in the late 1940’s. Paul, the alien has been a “guest” of the government all this time, but now fears... Read more »

Midweek Musings

I have republished Seth Arkin’s nice article on great finishes in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, because it was kind of buried over the weekend.  With the Sweet Sixteen games coming up tomorrow its a great reminder of why college hoops is so good, (and college football is so stupid!) Last night was another excellent... Read more »

Movie Review - The Lincoln Lawyer

Movie Review - The Lincoln Lawyer
by David Schuster Took time out in the midst of all the NCAA games to catch “The Lincoln Lawyer” and was glad I did. This was Matthew McConaughey at his wise cracking dramatic best unlike his recent string of comedic failures. “The Lincoln Lawyer” stars McConaughey as a slick lawyer who is used to representing one...

Unbelie-V-able: a "V" blog

The mother of the V-human hybrid baby.  She was Ryan's girlfriend, and died in childbirth at the hands of the V's.  DECEASED
As our favorite punching bag is headed towards its season finale next week, the action has been raised a few notches, as the credibility gap has edged down some more. Marcus (the former number two) who has recovered from being shot.  It’s amazing, how the not so minor characters appear to be killed off, only... Read more »
