AMOUR

AMOUR is a devastating look at the world of aging and caring for someone you love who is critically ill. I was not prepared for bone chilling yet lyrical way that Director Michael Haneke told his story. An event, by the way, that happened in his own family. Starring the French icon Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emanulle Riva, their performances sear the screen with beauty and tragedy. Riva, defying age and ageism, is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress and although a long shot it would be quite a coup...

IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN! THE 2013 AWARD EXTRAVAGANZAS!

By Stockton Briggle It is almost too much. We have just gotten through a Presidential election, Christmas, New Years, and now we have to face a glut of award shows. It used to be that there was only one and we all looked forward to the excitement of the annual Academy Awards. Now we are going to have to sit through a slew of awards ceremonies that boggle the mind. The Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, The People’s Choice Awards, The Razzie Awards, the Producers Guild Awards, the Writers Guild...

THE GOLDEN GLOBES EXTRAVAGANZA

By STOCKTON BRIGGLE Sunday nights Golden Globes ceremony was a delicious E RIDE into the world of Hollywood award shows. Probably, no other show is as much fun and unpredictable as this evening was. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler set a very high bar for original and very funny jokes throughout the evening, which provided a breezy and jazzy impetus moving things along quite nicely. Poehler’s aside about nominee Kathryn Bigelow knowing about torture because “she was married to director James Cameron for four...

Posted by on May 16, 2012 in Blog | 0 comments

O.K. everyone, listen up! If you haven’t been watching Masterpiece Mysteries SHERLOCK, you have been missing one of the best series to come along in far too long. A modern take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic series, this is an especially crafty and exciting take on the premise that Sherlock Holmes is alive and well in the 21st Century. It’s English, of course, which means that the writing is witty, fast and really intelligent. Headed by a superb young cast, it is a cross between WITHNALL AND I and THE...

Movie Reviews

By Stockton Briggle IRON LADY Meryl Streep has an almost mystical ability to morph into what seems to be an unending parade of famous people. Her Julia Childs portrayal was uncanny, and now she has literally become one of the most powerful women in history. If you are old enough to remember the “Iron Lady” Margaret Thatcher, who as Prime Minister transformed Great Britain during the Reagan years, you will feel like you are sitting in a front row seat witnessing it all over again. Streep does not...
