Last time we were here, Paul was rocking a sweet silver hairdo, the trademark of famed music producer Jerry Heller whom he portrayed in his second collaboration with director F. Gary Gray. Let's actually take a look at his first experience working with him in the excellent crime/hostage thriller The Negotiator, where Paul takes on … Continue reading Paul G — #5
As the leaves continue their mass exodus from their branches, I'm reminded that my favorite season is just around the corner. Why winter? A couple of reasons. First of all winter seasonals are some of my favorite beers. Second, winter usually means snow, and snow usually means it's time to go and hit the slopes. … Continue reading TBT: Out Cold (2001)
Panic time is now over as I have finally found something to talk about this Thursday. (Why don't I have a DVD plan with Netflix yet? That would surely eliminate some of this stress of finding movies I want to see only to be denied by a limited viewing availability. Oh, wait. That's right. It … Continue reading TBT: National Lampoon’s Van Wilder (2002)
Mercifully the month of February comes to an end this weekend. I say this not because of the romantic theme I've put everyone through on this feature over the last couple of weeks (I guess that's bad enough), but because the weather around here has been downright crazy. Last night I put my car in a … Continue reading TBT: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
In trying to keep with a theme for this month's batch of TBT's, I have failed. 😦 I kind of put myself in a bad spot by opening the month (and the year) with Arnie's disastrous adventure involving Armageddon in End of Days, a film I didn't really feel comfortable with "associating" with any others as … Continue reading TBT: Saving Private Ryan (1998)
I have had this blog for three years now and still haven't reviewed this?! This surprises me not just because of the infamy attached to this staple of 1970s American horror, but because it is one of my personal favorite horrors ever. Why haven't I been yammering on about this already?! I blame blogger's block. But here we are, … Continue reading TBT: The Exorcist (1973)
Welcome to October, and the ninth edition of The Franco Files! I suppose now would be a good time to make the announcement. I have decided that I will officially end this thread in December, effectively concluding this feature as we currently know it with 11 entries on December 10. I would continue into next … Continue reading The Franco Files #9
Welcome to September, and the eighth edition of The Franco Files! Still going strong here, folks. . .even despite my apparent inability to really get going on diving deeper into his filmography beyond the recent things that I have seen him in. Some fan, eh? I know, I know. Here's me reaching. Today's entry is not … Continue reading The Franco Files – #8
Hey guys, here is my contribution to the joint blogathon run by Zoe of The Sporadic Chronicles of a Beginner Blogger, and Rob of MovieRob. I chose to review a Hitchcock ‘classic,’ The Man Who Knew Too Much. It may not be viewed as his single most successful film, but now that I’ve watched it I’m happy to report it’s one perhaps seriously overlooked gem. I loved it.
Tom from Digital Shortbread wrote the next review for our Alfred Hitchcock Blogathon. Here are his thoughts on Hitchcock’s remake of his own 1934 movie with the same title – The Man Who Knew Too Much
Thanks Tom for this review!
The Man Who Knew Too Much
First I’d like to give a big shout-out to Miss Zoe of the absolutely fantastic Sporadic Chronicles. . . blog and MovieRob for hosting me during their impressive and ambitious Hitchcock blogathon. Seeing as I wanted to take part in something that would force me to learn something new about cinema, man, did I find the perfect event! I will be hesitant to admit this, but I might as well here: this is only the second Hitchcock film I’ve seen. I guess I should also ask, do I really hafta turn my movie critic card (that I just had laminated!!)…

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)
