Stoker, the latest offering from critically acclaimed filmmaker Park Chan-wook, director of the now classic Oldboy, features one of cinema’s favorite tropes – a Lolita.

Who’s Michael Curtiz, you ask? He directed Casablanca, silly.

Many a director has said that 90% of their job hinges on casting the right person for the part. So when the planets do not align and some grave mistake has transpired, is there any way to fix this glaring error? Footage somewhere exists of Michael Keaton in the Jeff Daniels role in The Purple […]

Last week @NataleeDara on Twitter objected to the Top Egg Scenes in Movies. Hey, some people don’t like eggs and that scene in Cool Hand Luke is pretty gross. So I so generously offered to make a list of scenes with @NataleeDara’s fav food, snack or treat and she picked ice cream. Awesome! Except I […]

Spring is a grand time for some. The sun is shining, the days are growing longer, and the smell of flowers is starting to fill the air. But for some of us, those very things are our downfall in the dreaded season of allergies. Getting sick when it’s beautiful out isn’t always fun, but what […]
