  • Misery Loves Comedy

    Misery Loves Comedy 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 23 Aug, 2015

    Another talking head documentary, this time on what drives comedians to do what they do. I do enjoy hearing comedians talking about their craft, though nothing groundbreaking is actually said here. Some absolutely amazing anecdotes, though, most of which I hadn't heard before.

    While the roster of comedians, and comedic actors, is impressive, there are some key big names who did not take part.

    I was interested throughout, they kept it moving, it didn't overstay it's welcome, nor thankfully did they stay with one comedian too long.

    Recommend, especially for the comedy nerds out there.

  • The Great Debaters

    The Great Debaters 2007

    ★★★★ Watched 30 May, 2015

    Watched as part of my Denzel Washington filmography project.

    I went in not know anything but the title and that Denzel starred and directed. A great example of why these actor initiatives I am doing are a great idea. because it helps me find gems like this one.

    Well made, well cast, well directed on a topic I was unfamiliar with and glad I am now informed about. Check out The Great Debaters when you get a chance.

    My kids and I watched and they liked this by far

    Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-do
    This movie's still great and is one of those few

    It's a film that's aged well
    after all's said and TOLD
    A film that still works for the young
    and the OLD
    I'm glad that I could share this with my girl and my BOY
    They're smiles and laughs --- that tells me it gave them some joy

    Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-dee
    If you are wise, you'll listen to me

    You will rewatch this as soon as you can
    And I give this a doom-pa, loom-pa
    Big Recommend!

  • Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007

    Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Mar, 2013 3

    Being a lifelong James Bond movie fan, I have seen and read more than my fair share of Bond "making of" and "behind the scenes" materials. On top of that, I recently researched and reviewed all the Bond films in 2012 for the Now Playing Podcast's James Bond movie retrospective series, so all the information is still fresh in my mind. So the subtitle of "The Untold Story of 007" doesn't apply to me; there is absolutely no new information…
