On Second Thought: “Beyond Borders”


In honor of today, June 20, I thought I’d do something a bit different. This is still a post on a film, but a very specific film that holds a special place in my heart for a few reasons. 1,783 more words

Happy Blur’d Day!

It’s been a few years since my last b-day-based blog post, so I figured it was time to see if there had been any more recent additions to the June 7th honour roll… and the highest new entry on IMDb’s “STARmeter” (second only to Liam Neeson!) is Anglo-American actress-turned-model… 282 more words

Demon vs. Dick 3: Back to the Past

I decided to get back on the found-footage-horror horse with Paranormal Activity 3 (2011), which is actually a prequel to the previous movies, set 18 years earlier, when the haunted heroines were innocent kiddy-winks portrayed by totally different actresses.* Sadly, this means a disappointing dearth of the abundant boobage that was a cornerstone of the first two flicks… but every horror fan knows the presence of children makes any supernatural story 666% creepier, no matter how derivative it might be, which may explain why this was the highest-grossing entry in the series so far! 513 more words

At First Glance: "Ricki and the Flash"

Some films, at first, seem hard to imagine, even though you know who all is involved in them. Then, at long last, comes a trailer, which tells you so much more (as it should) than a mere publicity still does. 829 more words

Recently: “The Last Five Years”


With as many musical films, be they original or adaptations, being made each year, there’s bound to be a few not so perfect ones. One can’t really prevent it, but it would be nice to know beforehand that a particular film might not actually be worth it, no matter how popular it is on stage (or was), or leading into a theatrical release. 1,358 more words
