Timelapse, Interrupted

Best photo-bomb ever? I struggled between titling this post its current title and 'Marmot, Interrupted.' Both are odd, but both make sense once you watch this adorable little clip of a mountain critter unwittingly becoming the star of this time-lapse photography of some gorgeous mountain vistas in Glacier National Park, Montana. It's these moments where … Continue reading Timelapse, Interrupted

TBT: Accepted (2006)

Well today, I went from this to that, and that to this and that to that and finally from this to this. It's been a struggle. While all this dilly-dallying is going on, there are kids going back to school. Or college students preparing to do so. For those people I spare no sympathies because I too was … Continue reading TBT: Accepted (2006)

Hercules

Release: Friday, July 25, 2014 [Theater] I think everyone who sees this one ought to go out and show their support by buying a Dwayne 'Hercules' Johnson action-hero figurine, complete with brown undies and epic flowing hair and redonkulous chest-piece. I don't care what it takes, just get it done: "Hey kids, get in the van 'cuz we're going … Continue reading Hercules

O Captain, My Captain: A Tribute to Robin Williams

Beginning next Monday, I will kick off my week-long tribute to Robin Williams, a man whom the title 'genius' or any other lofty descriptions most certainly apply but still somehow don't seem to do justice. The news of his passing on Monday, August 11 hit me like a tidal wave. Not an entirely unpredictable reaction either, … Continue reading O Captain, My Captain: A Tribute to Robin Williams

Belle

Release: Friday, May 2, 2014 (limited) [Theater] Period dramas are like unicorns when it comes to this blog. In fact, I believe them to be such a rarity that this is the very first time one dared rear its head here. But it only seems fair. After all, I did make a promise to switch things up … Continue reading Belle

TBT: Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

The dog days of summer are upon us. It's August, and that means back to school for some and the vacations are mostly over for the families who have been basking in the glorious summer sun (though I look forward personally to some more reasonable temperatures. . . we pasty-skinned Brits burn just embarrassingly easily). Yes, August is the … Continue reading TBT: Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

I Origins

Release: Friday, July 18, 2014 (limited) [Theater] I would like to conduct some research and find out the origins of the eye-roll. I wonder who the first person to do it was, and how such a subtle gesture came to signify "Oh my god, I don't believe this for a second." A science-based drama whose fictional … Continue reading I Origins
