The Dark Crystal in 70mm

Another interesting choice for Alamo’s 70mm series. I haven’t seen The Dark Crystal in years. I want to say I may have via Somara’s DVD collection but I keep thinking back to my senior year of high school when it was … Continue reading

Trainspotting: 20 or so years later

With the upcoming sequel due in a few weeks, Alamo had a screening recently that I wanted to revisit as preparation plus I hadn’t remember watching Trainspotting in years. I did read the book after seeing it at the old Village Four … Continue reading

RIP: Miguel Ferrer

Poor guy, knocked out by cancer at 61. Well he had quite a resume of his own and didn’t live in the shadow of his famous father Jose Ferrer. His big debut was the OCP executive who approved the Robocop … Continue reading

For the Love of Spock

Adam Nimoy’s loving tribute to his father was thankfully on Netflix since I don’t think this was distributed through any theaters in my area. The documentary covers the life and career of Leonard Nimoy with a big portion dedicated to … Continue reading

La La Land: Must See!

Musicals in the modern era tend to fall into three camps for me. Film adaptations of musicals that had successful Broadway runs (The Producers, Into the Woods); remakes of past musical movies (nothing comes to mind but I know it’s … Continue reading
