Nearly ten years ago, "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL" had burst upon the movie screens and to the surprise of many, became a major hit. Even more surprising, the movie ended up spawning a wildly successful movie franchise within another eight years and also a new cinematic icon for the 21st century – Captain Jack Sparrow.

"THE SITTAFORD MYSTERY" (2006) Review

I have never read Agatha Christie's 1931 novel, "The Sittaford Mystery". And I have read a lot of her novels. But since the novel did not feature Hercule Poirot, Miss Jane Marple, or Tommy and Tuppence Beresford; I never took the trouble to read it. Well, that is not fair. I can think of at least two or three Christie novels that did not feature any of these sleuths that I have read. But I have never read "The Sittaford Mystery". Read more...Collapse )

"ELEPHANTS CAN REMEMBER" (2013) Review




"ELEPHANTS CAN REMEMBER" (2013) Review

It is believed by many that the 1976 novel, "Curtain", was the last one written by Agatha Christie that featured Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. Not quite. "Curtain", which Christie wrote during World War II, was the last Poirot novel to be published. The 1972 novel, "Elephants Can Remember" proved to be the last Poirot novel written by the author.

"STAR TREK VOYAGER" RETROSPECT: (5.06) "Timeless"

The 100th episode of any television series is usually regarded with special interest - especially by television critics. Not all TV series go out of their way to write a special episode for that particular landmark. But many do. The producers of "STAR TREK VOYAGER", Rick Berman and Brannon Braga, along with screenwriter Joe Menosky, went out of their way to write a special story celebrating the series' 100th episode called (5.06) "Timeless".

"LIFE WITH FATHER" (1947) Review

Warner Brothers is the last studio I would associate with a heartwarming family comedy set in the 19th century. At least the Warner Brothers of the 1940s. And yet, the studio did exactly that when it adapted Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse's 1939 play, "Life With Father", which happened to be an adaptation of Clarence Day's 1935 novel.
