Feeling A Little Gray About The Gray Man

Posted by Greg on Jul 27, 2022 in Movies

This probably won’t come as a surprise to those that read this but this writer absolutely detests Netflix. The company that started in 1999 with direct-to-your-doorstep DVDs is a far cry from the behemoth it is today. And while there are signs of a slump, the streaming site is a megalith unto itself.

As America continues its march towards unprecedented polarity there is no denying the rise of hate crimes in the last decade. One such target of said hate crimes is Muslim Americans. In her absorbing new documentary An Act of Worship Pakistani-American director Nausheen Dadabhoy sheds light on a handful of Muslim Americans and their efforts to stem the tides of hate. A follow up project to her 2017 short of the same name An Act of Worship is an absolute must-see. Read more…

Movie of the Week – Worst to First: The True Story of Z100 New York

Posted by Greg on Feb 15, 2022 in Movies, Music

There’s a certain pride in being from New York. A kind of pride that’s hard to explain. Sure everyone is proud of their hometown but New York City, well that’s something different. Okay, sure, technically Long Island was home but the amount of time I’ve spent living and working in NYC is enough to call it home. Even now a decade-plus into living in Central Florida, there are some things one still misses about NYC. Z100 is one of those things. I can’t begin to tell you how many bus rides, carpools, road trips and mundane errands had Z100 as the backdrop. But how exactly did Z100 become the household name it is today? Read more…

Our Favorite Films of 2021

Posted by Greg on Jan 5, 2022 in Movies

I’ve seen WAY too many films this year. As the years continue to pass, I’m becoming more cinephile than audiophile. Much like the best albums list, I’m not too thrilled to put one over the other. All of these films have their merits. Without further ado, here goes. So as not to rank them, we’ll just put them in alphabetical order. I’ll probably have to edit this in a few days and add some others: Read more…

Posted by Greg on Jul 21, 2021 in Movies

Parallel Love
-the alt-rock indie band Luxury tries to make it big in a small town in Georgia. A life-altering accident on the road to a gig re-orders their priorities and some of the band members become Eastern Orthodox priests. While that latter part is not touched upon nearly as much as we would have hoped for it is an inspiring and winning film that deserves more attention. Read more…

Eddie Huang’s Boogie Disappoints

Posted by Greg on Mar 25, 2021 in Movies, NYC

We’ll just come right out and say it. We’re Focus Features junkies. Ever since the boutique, art-house film group started releasing films in 2002 we’ve done our part to try and see as many Focus Feature films as possible. It started with Far From Heaven and 18 years later we’re still trying to watch whatever they put in front of us. While they’re still prone to mistakes we can say we like at least 75 percent of what they’ve released to date. Read more…

Posted by Greg on Mar 17, 2021 in Movies

THE OXY KINGPINS – "Alex & Papantonio" from The Young Turks on Vimeo.

Well here we are. SXSW is raging on and we are just plumb-tuckered out. We just finished participating in “Dream” (more on that later). For now, the film highlights from Day 1. It was a doc-heavy day. Not many, if any, narrative films to speak of so far. Highlights include: Read more…
