The Bad News Bears - movie DVD cover picture
2, 4, 6, 8 ......


Some 20 years ago, I left off coaching Little League baseball because of the same type of attitudes shown in this movie. Although billed as a comedy, to my mind The Bad News Bears is equally a cautionary tale - it should be required viewing for all Little League coaches and parents. Hey folks, see yourselves here? Oh well, a word to the wise (and enjoy this movie)!

A perfect work of art....


The movie speaks for itself in terms of character development and mood. It is by far the greatest piece of work ever to come out of the 1970's in terms of telling a solid story with interesting people and depicting a side of human nature everyone tries to forget or repress. But the real beauty of the film is how it conveys the day to day life and environment of living in Southern California- from Catalina Island, to the Valley, to downtown, to residential Hollywood, seeing this movie will give you a feeling like no other of the perils of being a commoner or a sophisticate in the shark tank of L.A.

The Great Saga Continues - Hold the Dream


As with "A Woman of Substance" this movie carries on with Emma Harte's granddaughter Paula who is charged to hold Emma's dream. True to her previous movie this story stuck very close to the book. I love this story and I can't wait to watch the third one "To Be The Best". Watch and love!

No gimmicks, no explosions and no sentimetal lovey-dubby stuff just your average standard good guy vs.bad guy story with some sharp dialouge and some good shots of the l.a landscape. I don't understand all the negativity this film recieves it's a great film Wesley snipes plays a federal agent out for revenge agaisnt a small time crook and his vicious sidekick after his partner is killed in a undercover drug sting. The movie plays with style and character delvelopment, providing snipes with some of his best acting of his carrer. Dennis Hopper is his usual swarmy self playing a pathetic crook out to make his last score. Virgio Mortesson plays Ronnie, Hopper's crazy sidekick who just loves viloence his best scene was where after he shoots a guy in the face after ripping him off he runs him over with his car during his escape. This film is more toned down than "Passenger 57" but the previous lacked the common sense and the utter realism this film portrays. James B. Harris who made another good cop thriller starring James Woods called "COP" I think he even did a better job here. Casting Wesley Snipes in the role was a smart move he made this film more watchable with his flare for profanity and his well dressed manor was quite convincing as a FBI agent who has reached his "BOLING POINT" The title may not blend when seeing this film but who cares about the title? it's the film that counts and it's a great film at that.

Wonderfalls - The Complete Series - movie DVD cover picture
Quirky with at dash of surreal and sprinkle of the bizarre


Boomtown and Wonderfalls have only two things in common; they were both the victims of short-sighted networks, and they were both superbly well-crafted. It is depressing to see that quality does not always bring an audience, Wonderfalls was at least designed to work well as a 13 part mini-series, with a distinct beginning, middle and end.

Wonderfalls is the story of Jaye, an alienated, and over-educated member of generation-Y, who only works hard to evade responsibility in any manifestation. She has the talent to be successful, but would rather not expend and the effort and possibly be disappointed. Certainly her successful family give her no reason to believe that happiness follows success. Her inertia is disturbed only when animal shaped objects begin speaking to her and directing her actions. Jaye suspects schizophrenia, but begins to follow orders when ignoring the commands leads to disaster, while obeying always leads to desirable (and completely unpredictable) outcomes. Naturally all of this leads to a great of angst, and it is all sometimes painfully funny. The concept of the show works on two levels; on one we there is Jaye's particular assignment for the episode, where she is frequently called upon to perform a series of fairly insane actions to create a chain of events that make the world a better place. These are always entertaining and meticulously crafted, but I actually enjoyed the other level, which is the ongoing story of Jaye; her best friend Mahandra; Eric, the vulnerable bar tender; and Jaye's peculiar family. These interactions grow and progress throughout the season, and it becomes clear that Jaye's vocal animal friends have a deeper agenda to make all of these disparate pieces fit together in the right way. A pretty major undertaking given how dysfunctional this crew is, but very, very entertaining to watch. The acting and writing is universally stellar and the episodes keep getting better as you watch. Oh... One other thing that this has in common with Boomtown, is my highest recommendation.

My Cousin Vinny - movie DVD cover picture
If you haven't seen it, you are missing out!


The funniest movie of all! The accents are so perfect, I spent 17 years in NJ/NY so believe me, it hits home. Basic story is this; two kids traveling through the deep South to their college destination are picked up for murder after being mistaken for the actual murderers. Vinny is then called upon...a "six times a charm" family lawyer who has never set foot in the court room. What he goes through, 'bein from New Yawk an awl', in the South is all too funny. His girlfriend Mona Lisa Vito is a hoot. She has the typical attitude and the way she yells at Vinny, after he asks what pants he should wear to hunt "dea" (dear), is the best! If you don't like this movie, rethink your sense of humor. Of course there is a happy ending, but how thing evolve is the fabulous part. Please do not miss this one!

The X-Files - The Complete Eighth Season - movie DVD cover picture
Season 8 Tarnished by "The Fans"


The problem with Season 8 of "The X-Files" had nothing to do with storylines, new characters, or the lack of our beloved Fox Mulder (David Duchovny). The trouble with Season 8 of "The X-Files" had zilch to do with editing, Gillian Anderson's hair, or giving birth to alien babies.
No, the cause of its downfall is due to all the fickle fans out there who supposedly love the show, only to bash it over the head and proclaim to the heavens how the mighty have fallen. It's these same idiotic ingrates who couldn't stop proclaiming their passion for "The X-Files" during its glory years, only to turn their noses up at it just because old characters folded and new ones replaced them.
How many of you so-called true-blue X-Philes ever gave Season 8 a chance? As soon as word got out that David Duchovny no longer wished to be involved with the show anymore, it was the end of civilization as you knew it. Never mind that Chris Carter and all his fellow writers were hard at work to give you what you wanted. Just ignore the fact that David Duchovny was the ONLY character leaving, and that we still had plenty of Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, Nicholas Lea, and a host of other characters to follow. You whined and complained, bellyached and moaned, when the pop-culture phenomenon known as "The X-Files" began to, in your eyes, grow stale . . . only to criticize and grumble your little hearts out when the show didn't end and continued to deliver the goods every Sunday night.
You wanted more X-Files. You got more X-Files. And then you had the gall to gripe about it because, shucky-darn dag-nabbit, it just wasn't the same old show. Man, talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
Season 8 of "The X-Files" was a monumental success, something blatantly obvious if you would only open your eyes, shut your mouth, and suddenly come to that booming realization. What do you do to replace an actor who wishes to distance himself from the show? You supplant him with an actor who WANTS to be there, a guy who pumps new life into the show and puts an interesting spin on its dynamics.
You hypocritical hicks get all bent out of shape because Robert Patrick and Annabeth Gish are trying to steal the reins from David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson? Don't hate; congratulate. What, you expect Gillian Anderson and Mitch Pileggi do everything all by themselves?
GET OVER IT, PEOPLE. If you don't like Season 8, turn if off. Better yet, leave the room so those of us who do appreciate it and what it bestowed us can enjoy it to the fullest.
Don't believe all the naysayers on here who think Season 8 of "The X-Files" isn't worth your time. It is. These self-proclaimed X-Philes are just bitter, frustrated, and have a pile of sour grapes to boot. Everyone at 1013 is to be applauded for the dedication and hard work they put into making Season 8 one of the most accomplished seasons in the show's run.
Give it a chance. You won't regret it.
