Moreover, inspired by our recent screening of Joe, Ruth and I compiled our personal lists of Favorite Nicolas Cage Roles. Ruth even asks you to do the same:

MSPIFF and Flixchatter

There are many great people participating in Movie Blogville, and I am fortunate to live in the same city as one of them.

Press Pass

Courtesy of Ruth, I will be covering The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival for the next two weeks. On behalf of Flixchatter, where my reviews will first appear, I will see no less than a dozen of the festival’s offerings, including, but obviously not limited to, Joe (USA), Mystery Road (Australia) and The Double (UK).

Which means I owe Ruth public and sincere acknowledgement. Ruth, you’re awesome! Thank you for securing the Press Badge and for making me part of the Flixchatter crew; I am excited to see Intruders (South Korea) later tonight, and all of the other movies that come after it. Thank you again!


Revisiting Yesteryear

I have added several reviews to the Yesteryear section. First, I recently participated in two Cinema Parrot Disco blog series: the IMDB TOP 250 and the John Hughes Blogathon. Both series are entertaining and informative, and I was thrilled to be included in them.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Grade: B-

Mr. Mom (1983)

Grade: B-

Furthermore, I participated in MovieRob’s Genre Grandeur, another terrific series, if only because this one highlights many great thrillers. I recommend checking it out, as well.

Rear Window (1954)

Grade: A

Finally, I added this review:
