Mickey 's the Winner.....


Very funny movie, basic concept of the movie lots of friends who are actors just party. You follow the guys around town and hanging out drinking but there also more drama about getting over an EX. Just watch the scene where Vince Vaughn and the guys are have a meal after a heavy night of drinking. Haaa it was very "Saturday Night Liveish".... It is a dry pan comedy,it has many classic lines in the movie and Heather Graham is in it. What more can I say.. Very under rated movie but tons of fun.

Don't Talk To Strangers on a Train!


A chance meeting on a train changes the life of tennis player Guy Haines (Farley Granger) in ways he never could have imagined. When an odd, obsessed tennis fan, Bruno Anthony (Robert Walker), recognizes Haines, he does his best to ingratiate himself, talking incessantly about the details of Guy's life, details that most people wouldn't bring up at first meeting. But Bruno is a strange man indeed. Bruno hates his father and wants him dead. Guy wants a divorce from his unfaithful wife Miriam so he can marry political socialite Ann Morton (Ruth Roman). Bruno devises a plan where he and Guy swap or exchange murders: Guy murders Bruno's father and Bruno murders Guy's wife. By doing so, it will be impossible to link either of them to the respective murders. Bruno thinks this is the perfect plan and convinces, he thinks, Guy that this plan will work. Guy on the other hand is half listening to his odd companion and assumes that nothing will come of Bruno's wild imaginings. Wrong! Bruno actually kills Guy's wife, then hunts Guy down to have him return the favor. Guy is shocked but fearful that if he doesn't humor Bruno, he will be implicated in his wife's murder. As with all Hitchcock films, there are enough plot twists to keep the viewer guessing what the outcome will be right up to the famous carousel scene toward the film's climax. Hitchcock, of course, employs excellent camera work, with great scenes in Washington, D.C. (the scene with Walker in front of the Jefferson Memorial is absolutely chilling) and the Forest Hills Tennis Club on Long Island, where we are treated to what a tennis match looked like in the 1950s. Like Shadow of a Doubt, Hitchcock's earlier classic, doubles abound. The two men, one good, one evil, Guy is going to Southampton (Long Island) to play doubles, two drinks on the train (doubles), two women with glasses, Miriam and Barbara Morton (Ann's younger sister), and on and on. Based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith (The Talented Mister Ripley) adapted by Ben Hecht (uncredited), and Alfred and Alma Hitchcock. Raymond Chandler gets credit for the screenplay, however, most of what he originally wrote did not make the final cut. Once this movie gets going, the suspense and tension just doesn't let up. This film provided probably the best roles either Granger or Walker ever had, and they do excellent work here. Walker is effectively charming and creepy all at the same time (like Joseph Cotton in Shadow of a Doubt), and Granger is properly shocked and paralyzed by what he perceives to be an impossible series of events placing him and his fiancee in incredible peril. The British version has a different ending than the American version (I prefer the ending in the American version to the British), however, both are satisfying and don't change the film's conclusion. A wonderful film with all the great Hitchcock touches; you will be wonderfully entertained by Strangers on a Train.

House of Yes - Live From House of Blues - movie DVD cover picture
Greatest musical dvd of all time


This DVD is one all Yes fans must have. A great mix of new tunes from the Ladder and several great classics!. "Homeworld" is awesome and should be a classic someday. The DVD opens with one of the best Yes songs "Yours is no Disgrace" and is the best version of this song I have every heard. The greatest song on DVD every is "Awaken". Listen to this alone with no interuptions and you will see why.
I have seen Yes over 15 times and this DVD is the closest thing to being their live. Their timing is impecable and the audio and video is clean, crisp, and tight! I promise you will not be disapointed.

Blade (New Line Platinum Series) - movie DVD cover picture
Seriously Hype Movie


Blade David S. Goyer has written yet another comic book based flick, Blade. Some of his past works were Dark City (B) and Crow: City of Angels (B-). All three of these movies were based on comic books and Goyer has become accustomed to the style. Blade was a comic-lovers dream movie. It had a vigilante who didn't hesitate when destroying the enemy, a very cool villain who you almost want to win, and enough butt kicking to satisfy most appetites for destruction. Some may compare this movie to the Spawn movie which came out recently. Don't. People who did like Spawn, will like Blade, but it doesn't necessarily go both ways. This movie is one that is definitely worth seeing, if only for the opening sequence which beat out the opening scene for Replacement Killers as #1 opening sequence. (A- Brandon)
