"KELLY’S HEROES" (1970) Review

When one thinks of acclaimed movies about World War II, titles such as 1962’s "THE LONGEST DAY" or 1998’s "SAVING PRIVATE RYAN" come to mind. But an offbeat movie about a group of U.S. Army soldiers that go AWOL behind enemy lines to rob Nazi gold from a bank in a small French town does not conjure up images of Academy Award statuettes in one’s mind. In fact, I doubt that 1970’s "KELLY’S HEROES" had ever received a prestigious award or nomination. Read more...Collapse )

"LOST RETROSPECT": (5.02) "The Lie"

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (5.02) "The Lie"

Season Five of ABC's "LOST" has always struck me as the series' Odd Man Out. It is not the first season to break the rules of the series' format. Season Four not only featured flashbacks, but also flash forwards. But Season Five seemed to be all over the place. And I believe this was due to the cast being split up for the first half of its season. Read more...Collapse )

"WIVES AND DAUGHTERS" (1999) Review

Eleven years have passed since the BBC first aired "WIVES AND DAUGHTERS", the 1999 adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell’s 1865 novel. And despite the passage of time, it has a sterling reputation as one of the best adaptations of a literary source in recent years. Read more...Collapse )


Several years ago, my family and I became hooked on an old series that aired on TNT about a platoon of Army soldiers during the Vietnam War called "TOUR OF DUTY". The series starred Terence Knox and Stephen Caffrey and originally aired on CBS between 1987 and 1990.Read more...Collapse )

"THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL" (2014) Review




"THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL" (2014) Review

I have never been a major fan of Wes Anderson's films in the past. Well . . . I take that back. I have never been a fan of his films, with the exception of one - namely 2007's "THE DARJEELING LIMITED". Perhaps my inability to appreciate most of Anderson's films was due to my inability to understand his sense of humor . . . or cinematic style. Who knows? However, after viewing "THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL", the number of Anderson films of which I became a fan, rose to two. Read more...Collapse )
