I recently watched BILLY BUDD, a 1962 movie based upon Herman Melville's short novel. Directed by Peter Ustinov, who also played Captain Vere, BILLY BUDD starred twenty year old Terrence Stamp in the title role, a stunning debut that earned him an Academy Award nomination. It was independently produced on a modest budget and is a taut and compelling

It's the last one.
The last movie from the last book.
The books-on-CD have been made. The author has moved on. It's our last chance to celebrate this tremendous imaginary world that so many of us love.
Santa Cruz was out in full force. The line in front of the Cinema 9 started on Tuesday for a midnight Thursday show. Photos, starting from the back of the

Many people might look at the current state of hollywood movies and get a little dispirited. As a movie fan, it seems to me like more and more money is going into less and less quality. After recently watching the embarrassingly, solemnly awful The Last Airbender, the decline of big blockbusters has never seemed more evident (Inception notwithstanding).

Some of my best friends are Twilight fans. I have nothing against them, but I won't bother to read the books or see the movies.
However, I did get a huge kick out of seeing one person's vision of how Buffy the Vampire Slayer would act, if she ran into Edward:
Now tell me if you think Edward is a

Last Friday night (Halloween eve) I attended my second Guerilla Drive-In event. I went with some trepidation because this Guerilla Drive-In was being held in San Lorenzo Park as a challenge to the ordinance which says that all public parks are to closed after sunset. I envisioned a large crowd ready for confrontation for when the police would inevitably

"man on wire" won the best documentary oscar last

I'd heard of the local Guerilla Drive-In for some time, last Friday night I finally partook of this event, and I'm glad I went.
The idea is simple, local people find a spot here in town where they can project a movie at night for the enjoyment of the community. People bring something to sit on, something to eat and drink, and enjoy the movie. It's like
Jul 16 Published in Movies, Harry Potter by Jake | Comment (2)
When the folks at Warner Bros. got together and decided that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince should be released, not on its scheduled November 21st Thanksgiving Weekend date, but on the far-off and seemingly arbitrary date of July 15th, many people were understandably frustrated. Now that the date has finally arrived, and, shirking the midnight-movie

This morning, I was one among many of the young adult light-readers who missed all three midnight premiers of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince at the Downtown Santa Cruz Regal 9. Bummer? No way. Missing the midnight showings also meant missing the 12-hour, 'round the corner lineup, way-too-into-it-and-slightweight-questionable hardcore

saw transformers 2: revenge of the fallen last night—god bless the internet and people who upload movies to watch free streaming online.
i love the way the title of the movie looks in cyrillic or whatever that's called. the movie was good, if you like explosions, a loose plot line and beautiful girls. in other words, it's a great two hour escape from the

"i will not watch star trek free online," that's been my mantra for the last few weeks. i remember the first commercial i saw for the new movie—it looked so exciting! after seeing the commercials a few times, i made a promise to myself—i can wait til it comes out on dvd. i resisted looking for a bootleg copy of the dark knight. movies like the dark knight

For me, the progression from learning ABC's to perusing the shelves of my local comic emporium was fast. Superman replaced The Cat in the Hat, followed by Little Dot, Archie, and Batman. I love to read, and I love to read comics.
My interest waned for a decade or so — how many times can Superman die, really? —

Hearing all this negative talk about protectionisn has really got me to wondering how language can be twisted to suit just about any opinion. If you lock your door when you leave your house, isn't that protectionism? How about if you live in a gated community with a high fence, entrance checkpoints and 24 hour a day security If you have the

Earlier this year Josh Brolin played the role of soon to be former president George Bush in "W.", then went on to portray Dan White in the upcoming movie about Harvey Milk. So how did he get passed over by the producers and director of "Valkyrie" for the part of
