Movie review: 'Red Dawn' (1984)

The 1984 cult classic “Red Dawn” (it did OK at the box office, too) is a decent action film with a decent cast and decent work, but there are a few too many stereotypes for it to have risen to any greatness. 1,090 more words

Dirty Dancing in the park

Twenty-seven years a go I was a teenager and like so many others I fell in love with a film: Dirty Dancing. It wasn’t the leading man that did it for me, nothing against the late Patrick Swayze, nor was it the cute leading lady with the interesting nose, sorry Jennifer Grey, for me it was the music, the dancing and the fashion. 202 more words

Remember that scene in ‘Ghost’ where Sam helps Molly on the potter’s wheel?

Well, in preparation for getting groovy with some nearly deads in a matter of hours, this one’s on repeat.
