Life In A Day

Life philosophy according to Tam… We are all, everyone of us spinning on this little orb, people who live, experience joy, have pain, grieve, celebrate, and love. We are all the same… want the same things (happiness, our kids to be safe, to live the best lives we can, to laugh, to love)… not matterContinue reading “Life In A Day”

Friends, Movies, And Food

We had a great day yesterday.  Time spent hanging out with great friends, eating together, and going to see a couple of Academy Award winners we hadn’t seen.  I’m going to talk about that a little… Black Swan…  Natalie Portman did do a fantastic job.  The whole film relies on her acting.  You have toContinue reading “Friends, Movies, And Food”

80’s Movies I Love

I’ve had a lot of down time in the last few months, as many of you know.  This has led me to watch a lot of tv, which has included a lot of movies.  The other day I watched Vision Quest, a film I hadn’t seen in a long long time.  I like it, inContinue reading “80’s Movies I Love”

50 Movies of The Future… And Some Sequels

I was thinking about film today, as I do pretty often, wondering what I’d pick if I tried to come up with a combo list of slightly strange sci-fi movies including some post apocalyptic stuff.  Films I liked.  Films that had an impact on me… couldn’t forget scenes from them, made me think a bit…Continue reading “50 Movies of The Future… And Some Sequels”

Give Up The Popcorn and Walk Out – 13 Awful Films To Avoid7

The previous post about The Spirit and All That Jazz has spurred a post about the worst films I’ve ever seen.  I’m going to post 10.  At least, that’s my goal right now, at the start.  It could gain momentum and be a bit longer list.  We shall see.  They will be in no particularContinue reading “Give Up The Popcorn and Walk Out – 13 Awful Films To Avoid7”

Death Proof

We watched Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof last night. What did I think? I loved it. It’s his dialogue that always gets me. I love how the guy, meaning Tarantino, writes. It’s snappy, and hip, flowing right off the screen with such great natural ease. Really good stuff. The movie actually starts off a bit slow,Continue reading “Death Proof”

Evening

We watched the film, Evening, last night and about it I just have this to say… if you like excellent acting, watch this movie. It is a veritable powerhouse of women’s acting. Yes, there are some great performances by men in this movie, but women dominate the story and the screen. Vanessa Redgrave is, asContinue reading “Evening”
