No Time to Die   9/16/22
by JPRetana
The movie looks great, the action sequences are spectacular, and the seamless CGI but need I say more?

Moonwalker   9/16/22
by JPRetana
If you've seen the video for Smooth Criminal, you've seen the best of Moonwalker, but you haven't seen it all, and by all I don't mean the rest of the film, but the kind of sight that merits the expression 'now I've seen it all' (and this isn't necessarily a bad thing; it's weird, but mostly good-we...

Dorian Gray   9/13/22
by JPRetana
Sure, at 31, Townsend was arguably too old for the role in 2003, and even more so in 2009, the year this Dorian Gray was released; he was also too expressive, and based on both this film and The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945), it seems that the ideal Dorian Gray is a blank page an unpainted canvas, ...
