Movie Remakes that Stunned Me–Warning:This post is not for the faint hearted …

Hollywood Sign

Hollywood loves to do remakes. But should you really mess with a good thing? Well … you know Hollywood … anything for a buck. So I wasn’t surprised when I was cruising  my favorite low-down-n-dirty second hand bookstore and found these DVD titles gathering dust. So guess what I did? I bought them all!

Four Types of Femme Fatales

An oldie but it still rings true … read and find out why:

A recent conversation with a very distraught and angry friend got me thinking about the damage women can do to men. Recently dumped by his girlfriend he ranted about how women are nothing but sneaky, gold digging liars who destroy men’s lives. I didn’t argue over his generalization or that he was talking to a woman. He was in too much pain to be challenged.

Basically, he bought her a new car, new boobs, a new nose and now she’s got a new man. She was a goddamn femme fatale he said. I had met the woman. So, I told him about the four types of femme fatale and since he’s a film buff I used a few movie references to support my descriptions
The Classic Femme Fatale in film noir seduces the man to commit the crime. In “Double Indemnity” Barbara Stanwyck two-times Fred MacMurray, but not before she convinces him to murder her husband. He couldn’t resist her so he killed for her. Classic femmes use their sexuality to compromise a man’s morality and ethics for a piece of prime tail that these men unknowingly have to share.

I love the bad boys …

He makes you feel squishy and gooey in all the right places. He’s tough, he’s dangerous and he’s hot. Bad boys make our blood boil and quiver our delicate loins. We know they’re not good for us, but why do we find them so damn irresistible?

He wasn’t very tall and he had funny looking ears, but the way Clark Gable swept Vivien Leigh up those stairs in “Gone with the Wind” makes my heart go pitter patter and other lady parts as well.  Read more of this post

My Favorite Movie Quotes Re-Written My Way

As a movie lover and writer, I’ve taken the liberty to rewrite some of my favorite movie quotes to express my issues and neurosis in life.

*************************

“Gimme a whiskey, ginger ale on the side. And don’t be stingy, baby.”                             Greta Garbo, “Anna Christie,” (1930)

Gimme a chocolate cake with ice cream on top. And make that a double.

Do you recognize the girl in this clip? Before she got her officer and gentleman, she came to terms with learning how to spin.

My Favorite Movie Moments

During the “be kind rewind” days of the 80s and 90s I had to press rewind and hope that I stopped the video at the right time to replay my favorite movie scene (what a pain). DVD made it easier because all I had to do was skip to a scene. Today, I just do a keyword search on You Tube and voilà … here are some of my favorite movie moments.

When “A Christmas Story” came out who knew that it would become a cult classic. This scene is one of the reasons why:

Today, we’re used to seeing the flying acrobatics made famous in Hong Kong cinema, but when I first saw this scene I thought I want to do that (in my dreams of course). The fight scene in “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon” shows how two bad ass chicks can kick some bootie. Director Ang Lee is a master! And Michelle Yeoh freakin’ ROCKS.

Loved the series. I didn’t care for the movie except for his karaoke scene from “Sex and the City 2.”
