56 Up 2012 TV

www.youtube.com…

Hard to believe 7 years have passed since I saw 49 Up.

I first saw this series at 42 Up. While its premise seems more fascinating than the actual movie, it is still an excellent series well worth the watch.

It’s fascinating how the slogan “give me the child at 7, and I’ll show you the man” is so accurate.

56 Up 2012 TV.

Another film that has a similar style is called Dear Zachary.

SlackerUprising is out

Michael Moore in 2004

The Big Guy Michael Moore has released his new movie, SlackerUprising.  Again, I like the guy, although I don’t agree with a lot of his solutions.

His website still shows the trailer, even though he says it’s available there.  It’s easier to grab it as a torrent.

Big Slacker Uprising

I know as a right winger I am not supposed to like Michael Moore, but after his classic [amazon asin=B00009YXA]Roger and Me[/amazon] and meeting him at the Toronto Film Festival during his premier of The Big One, I have to say I love the guy.  Keeping up with the times, Mike’s releasing a new movie online, to start with anyway.

I just wish people would realize his movies are more mockumentary than documentary.  That’s why they’re so entertaining.

“This film really isn’t for anybody other than the choir,” Mr. Moore said. “But that’s because I believe the choir needs a song to sing every now and then.”

Amanda Seyfried can really sing

This girl has the voice of an angel.  Who knew she was one of those actresses that didn’t actually think she could sing!

Mike from Scarboro

I always liked Mike Meyers…and his tributes to his home town.

Scarborough’s Mike Myers packs his movies with messages for home

If I don’t see this movie, I will at least rent it.  Go Mike!

Thirteen, the movie

If you are a parent, and if you have a daughter, the movie Thirteen is a must see.

“Beautifully disturbing” is the best review byline I’ve seen.  Buy or rent it today!

Read some reviews to see what I mean.

Styx DVD

Just finished watching Dennis Deyoung – The Symphonic Rock Music Of Styx, and have to tell you this is one of the best produced concert DVDs out there.  The energy coming from DDY is amazing, and his voice has never sounded better.

Go get this DVD if you have any interest in Styx music.

Black IS Beautiful

I just finished watching the best movie ever to come out of India, called Black ($US orders)

It’s a story already told, but add gorgeous cinematography, gorgeous Rani Mukherjee , and a haunting, amazing soundtrack, and you have a true masterpiece.

Go out and rent the movie now.  If you can’t find it, join Zip.ca, and rent it from there.

One for the fathers

It’s so refreshing in this day of feminazism and courts excluding fathers to see the movie Evelyn (Buy here) ($US orders)

With a gentle tug at the heartstrings, Evelyn tells the true story of an imperfect father whose devotion brought much-needed change to rigid Irish law.

Manly, yes, but I like it too (remember the Irish Spring soap commercials?).
