Antebellum A Face In The Crowd (1957) Raising Arizona 6 Movie Themed Slots That You’ll Enjoy Playing Raising Arizona: Devon’s Take

Antebellum

It takes a village. As we continue to face and confront the reality that racism is still deeply ingrained in American society and culture, we continue to uncover more and more evidence that maybe the Civil War never really ended. Yes, slavery was technically outlawed as a result of the Civil War, but that did […]

A Face In The Crowd (1957)

A Face In The Crowd made me sick. I hated everything about it. I wanted to reach through the flatscreen and punch Andy Griffith’s grinning mug. Why? Because every minute of this movie reminded me of our sitting Idiot In Chief, Donald Trump. This movie was made in 1957 and was as white as Wonder […]

Raising Arizona

In just a third of their output, the tapestry of locales and personas from vast walks of life in the Coen brothers’ cinematic universe reads more like an illustrated road atlas of the US than disparate stories. After just six films—Blood Simple, Fargo, The Big Lebowski, No Country for Old Men, Burn After Reading, and […]

Raising Arizona: Devon’s Take

What Makes Raising Arizona Work? FAIR VALUE of Raising Arizona: $8.00. Like contemporaries A Fish Called Wanda or Brain Donors, Raising Arizona is a relentless slapstick comedy that has high re-watchability. THE COEN BROTHERS BEGIN HONING THEIR CHOPS: In many ways, Raising Arizona is the wooliest, most slapdash of all of the Coen comedies. They […]

Becket (1964)

A decidedly off-balance historical character study, Becket concerns the friendship between Thomas Becket and King Henry II. Taking place within 100 years of the Battle of Hastings, and the conquering of the lowly Saxons by the haughty Normans, the film does not shy from showing the utter corruption that permeates the halls of power. Here, […]

The Lion In Winter (1968)

In Prussian folklore, there were 2 Lords with adjacent kingdoms. They had feuded for decades and absolutely loathed each other. Their hate had made for continuous misery for the people they lorded over and the Gods in the sky decided to do something that might bring peace. They wanted to be fair to both Lords, […]

Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? (1966)

Marital bliss has been described in many ways. “Death by 1,000 cuts” (Matt Cale) or “The state or condition of a community consisting of a master, a mistress and two slaves, making in all, two”(Ambrose Bierce). There are also many stages, the first being Disillusionment, which is the stage of marriage following Romance and before […]

The Big Lebowski (1998)

If there ever was a movie that I was hesitant to review, it has to be The Big Lebowski. Really? Is it that bad? No, quite to the contrary, it is that GOOD. The Coen Brothers, Ethan and Joel have for some time been among the GODS of directors and writers, and for good reason. […]

Withnail & I (1987)

It is indeed an honor to review one of my favorites and one of the funniest and wittiest comedies ever made. Withnail & I is in my personal Top 5 movies of all time for re-watchablity and scathing dialogue. Armed with this splendid script, Richard E. Grant executes a tour de force as a relentlessly […]

The Naked Gun: From The Files Of Police Squad! (1988)

While I am in the midst of trying to cheer myself up from this absolute debacle of a year, I would be more than remiss, and downright derelict if I did not include another comedy film, The Naked Gun. While Leslie Neilson was a hilarious supporting actor in the great comedy Airplane, he is the […]

Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom

You probably think this movie is about Indiana Jones. You probably also think it’s about a temple made out of doom. Well, you’d probably be wrong! It’s about one man’s struggle to practice his religion. Before Stallone’s sweat ever touched a Russian or Van Damn ever round-housed an Asian, a man by the name of […]

Best Movies That Can Inspire Kids To Be More Active

Kids are naturally fast learners, and they quickly grab information, especially when they are between the age of one to four.  Training your kids has moved on from pointing out pictures to them on hardcopy books—-you can now do more, thanks to the TV. Unlike in the past, when televisions were a symbol of luxury […]
