A Fascination With The The Doors Jul03

A Fascination With The The Doors

A Fascination With The The Doors Jon Jordan Jim Morrison died on this day in 1971, 44 years ago. People are still obsessed with him I’m a fan of the music of the doors, I think some of the things they did were beyond innovative and are still influencing music. Jim Morrison’s voice was so rich and powerful, Ray Manzarek filled the background with huge sounds, Robby Krieger’s guitar work was amazing and John Densmore drums drove almost everything they played. I also love how much of their music f really bluesy. I find myself getting lost in the music to this day. I don’t worship this band, I’m just a fan of them as musicians and love to hear...

Film Review: I’ll See You in My Dreams Jul03

Film Review: I’ll See You in My Dreams

“I’ll See You in My Dreams” Directed by Brett Haley Written by Marc Basch, Brett Haley Starring: Blythe Danner, Martin Starr, Sam Elliott, Rhea Perlman, Mary Kay Place, June Squibb Carol is a long-time widow living out the last decades of her life, enjoying only the company of her three friends and her beloved dog. The movie explores in a gentle, respectful way why this is the case and asks the question: can her situation be changed? It is well-acted, well-made but a tad too familiar for a big screen movie. We have seen it before with Meryl Streep or Diane Keaton playing this part. However, the theater was filled with...

From Dusk To Dawn Season One Reviewed

FROM DUSK TO DAWN Season One E One/ El Rey I loved the original movie of Dusk To Dawn. I went to the theater expecting a crime movie, Tarintino and Rodriguez together? Hell Yes I’m in. What I saw blew me away as the last third of the movie was far from what I was expecting. I loved it but the buddy of mine I went with was not happy.   Know how the movie turns into a horror film I was pretty sure I knew what to expect from a TV show that essentially retells the story from the movie but I was wrong. They really expanded everything for the 10 episodes and there was nothing that didn’t add to it. Seth and Ritchie Gecko are a couple of bad...

Grantchester DVD Review

GRANTCHESTER Season 1 PBS Masterpiece Theater’s MYSTERY! Has over the years turned out an awful lot of wonderful programming. Grantchester is one of the latest and the first season is now out on DVD. Based on a series of books by James Runcie (which are great reading) this is a traditional mystery in the British tradition which means little or no violence shown and emphasis on characters. It’s 1953 and Sidney Chambers (James Norton) is a WWII vet who is now a vicar in a small town near Cambridge. He likes jazz and enjoys his work but when a parishioner comes to him with secrets about a death he can’t help but get involved. He ends up...
