Love Stinks

Dirty Love Poster

Not a fan of Valentine's Day? If the traditional romance films aren't your cup of tea this time of year, consider the line written by Shakespeare from A Midsummer Night's Dream, "The course of true love never did run smooth." While these films feature the pain of heartbreak and fall out from bad break-ups, they still manage to celebrate friendship and the (eventually) fruitful pursuit of true love.

VALENTINE'S MOVIES!

It Was 47 Years Ago Today...

On February 9, 1964 the Beatles made their first U.S. television appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. This historic event started what was forever known as Beatlemania!

The Beatles films include:

Quirky Gentlemen

The films Gentlemen Broncos and The Extra Man are frolicsome comedies that portray unique young men who are writers and maintain an unconventional relationship with a mentor. If you like eccentric comedies that can venture into the absurd, I recommend these two films.

Gentlemen Broncos is from the same geniuses who made Napoleon Dynamite. When I first saw Napoleon Dynamite, I admit, I wasn't sure it was funny until the second viewing.

  1. Audition (Japanese) This film is based on a male widower whom is still sadden by the death of his wife. His friend tries to help out by setting his house into a studio to hold auditions for a fake film in order to find a new wife.

My Favorite Show: The Cape

The Cape

Only 3 episodes have aired of the new show The Cape, but I am already hooked. If you've missed it, don't despair, you can watch full episodes online for free. Wrongly accused and presumed dead, Vince Farraday finds refuge within a circus of thieves who teach him an odd assortment of skills. He earns The Cape - a hooded cloak with stunning properties.

Very much rooted in the superhero genre, it has the flair of the early seasons of Heroes, the action of the BBC show Robin Hood and is blended with the humor of Firefly.

The Royal Treatment

Royal Film

It pays to play the king (or queen, as the case may be.) Whether it's comedy or drama, on television or the big screen, we love a good portrayal of the British royal family. And a small number of talented actors and actresses have been rewarded for just that--delivering award-winning performances as British monarchs.

I've been a Colin Firth fan since I first saw him in Shakespeare in Love as the snobby and sniveling Lord Wessex, and I've been an Anglophile for as long as I can remember, so there was no way I was going to miss him play the stammering King George VI in The King's Speech. I saw it this past weekend, and it actually rendered me speechless--a rare moment. Firth is magnificent in this clever film, which is about much more than George's speaking difficulties.
