    Cinema Paradiso


    100 years ago, my great-grandfather Michael moved to New York from the village of Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily. Thirty years later, he moved to southern California because the climate reminded him of the beautiful, hot terrain of his Sicilia.

    Twenty years ago today, I was born. Unlike my brothers, I never got the chance to know Michael, or my grandparents Antoinette and Robert - they died before I was born.

    Three generations removed from Italy, I’ve always known a conditional…

    It's a scream, baby!

    It is Scream, and boy do I love it. This is that movie for me, the one that I think is brilliant and entertaining and hands-down amazing. The one I can tell you a bunch of random trivia about.

    Sometimes clicking on random movies on Shudder is not the way to go.

    Dear Hollywood,
    PLEASE stop giving nominations and awards to old, established actors simply due to the fact they are old, established actors who happened to be in a movie that year.

    Why are there so many big names in this? Why do they each only have like 5 lines in the whole movie? Why is Sarah Paulson playing Tom Hanks' housewife? Why does Sarah Paulson give a forced, unnatural speech about Meryl Streep, whose character she never even interacts with…

    It's important to reflect on your life sometimes and count your blessings. For instance, today I'm incredibly grateful that this movie is only 104 minutes.
