Movie theaters have come a long way since I was a kid. But despite the advances in movie theater seating, there is just not enough leg room for you to get really comfortable for your nap during Rio 2. So unfortunately I was awake through much of the predictable plot, the annoying cut-out characters, and […]

The U.S. Geo­log­i­cal Sur­vey (USGS) says fracking is not a threat to groundwater in Wyoming. Environmentalists are left looking silly again. Wyoming Governor Matt Mead is hoping science will prevail. Don’t worry. Hollywood is on the case: The fact that Damon and John Krasinski decided to collaborate on an anti-fracking movie called “Promised Land” is […]

I’m watching The Great Escape with my son, one of the great guy movies of all time. Okay, my daughter is watching, too. But I can’t think of a better “guy” movie, at least one that’s appropriate for an 11-year-old. It’s one of those movies you have to watch just to be a guy and […]

Today is the Alfred Hitchcock’s 112th birthday. Which film will you watch to celebrate? I thought today we would look at two excerpts from the famous interview by Peter Bogdanovich: How would you define pure cinema? Pure cinema is complementary pieces of film put together, like notes of music make a melody. There are two […]

Settled in to watch a movie tonight. For some reason the idea of watching Sylvia Plath stick her head in the oven did not appeal to me tonight, so I took a pass on Sylvia. But I have to wonder, why was it on the Thriller Max channel? Aside from a partially naked Gwyneth Paltrow, […]

Kathryn Jean Lopez of National Review interviewed Rachel Campos-Duffy, the wife of congressional candidate Sean Duffy and a former star of MTV-TV’s The Real World, about her book on motherhood. A Hollywood refugee, Campos-Duffy talked about life away from the lights and glitter: LOPEZ: You were on a totally different track — Los Angeles and […]

Tonight the Lovely Doreen from Waukesha and I went to dinner at Art Smith’s Table 52 in Chicago.  Art was at the Oscars hanging out with Elton John. Dinner was excellent, and so was the service.  Our waiter, Justin, was great at explaining the menu and in making sure our experience was enjoyable.  The atmosphere […]

Meghan McCain takes on the boob fashion police. Artificial big breasts are in, but natural big breasts are out, and she doesn’t think that’s right. Last week, Heidi Montag was on the cover of People magazine after going through an astounding 10 plastic surgeries—including a second round of breast implants. This time around, the 23-year-old […]

Meredith Baxter, thrice-married, has made the lesbian-coming-out career move. “…It never once occurred to me that I was gay.” What’s so unique about this that People Magazine even bothers to cover it? Will the publicity boost Baxter’s career? Unlikely. Ellen has a daytime talkshow, and the Bono kid upped the ante with a sex change. […]
