Blast from the past: My Man Godfrey

Evidently I am not a fan of screwball comedies, which is weird considering how much I love talking, good scripts, quick, witty banter, fashion, & beautiful set design. I watched My Man Godfrey before I knew this fact, and it could have been my first ever screwball film.  I watched it in Professor Brown's class. … Continue reading Blast from the past: My Man Godfrey

Blast from the past: Quiz Show

I had never even heard of this movie before we watched it in class, but it came out in 1994 and was nominated for four Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Script.  I didn't realize Robert Redford was a director, either, but that's an impressive title to add to the list:  actor/producer/dessert namesake/director. All in … Continue reading Blast from the past: Quiz Show

Blast from the past: In America

This was the first film I ever watched in a college level film class.  We watched it twice, actually.  It was the first and last film we watched in that class.  I've seen it at least once since then.  Great, great film. Much like Witness, I had to watch the first fifteen minutes on mute.  … Continue reading Blast from the past: In America

“I’m washing my hands, man”: Witness

My final assignment to the film Witness.  In an earlier post I expressed the idea that I may want to watch the film again to give it another shot.  After re-reading this, I now remember exactly why I didn't like it, and why I won't be watching it again.  To add to what you're about … Continue reading “I’m washing my hands, man”: Witness

“Don’t know much…”: Witness

Assignment number two about the movie Witness. This time I had to draw parallels between another movie we had watched in class.  That's really neither here nor there. This paper focuses mainly on Peter Weir, the director, and his vision when making it. This video is the super sexy scene where Harrison Ford and Kelly … Continue reading “Don’t know much…”: Witness

Blast From the Past: Witness

So, as a result of the best month of the year concluding in multiple celebratory occasions, I did little movie watching, and even less review writing in the past week.  I did see SATC2, which will be coming soon, and Toy Story 3, but that one is going to have to wait.  I need to … Continue reading Blast From the Past: Witness

Blast From the Past: The Muppets Take Manhattan

That means it's time for me to pull another one out of the vault. (I wonder how many more of these I have to pull from...) This one I'm pretty stoked about. It is another favorite of mine, and not enough people have seen this classic Muppets flick. It is amazing, so you really should watch it. Also, it's where the TV show The Muppet Babies originated from, and it's the movie where Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy get married. (Did you know they are married? They are. It happens in this movie.)
