Eva Green in “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”

Recently, I saw the poster(that U.S. censors deemed too risqué for American eyes)featuring a scantily clad Eva Green in this summer’s coming “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”. Having seen it now, I believe there is little doubt that, I have to attend “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”! Eva Green. I’ve been infatuated since first […]

The Lynch Ledger-Entry Three: Dune (1984)

Fyi, to my current Lynch Ledger fans: I re-watched 1984’s “Dune” almost a full month ago(right at the beginning of May), and I’ve been contemplating ever since just how to cover it. Two things: I want to be fair to the film, and try to avoid bias as much as possible. Plus, I wish to […]

“Guardians of the Galaxy”? Alright, I’m intrigued.

Aren’t you? If anything, talk about an unconventional turn into next year’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”—the official final entry in the Marvel “Phase Two” rollout. Hey, outside of the trailers, I know absolutely nothing about “Guardians of the Galaxy”, or its history as a comic book. It just looks like it could work. And, I must […]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Now, that’s more like it! A complete improvement over 2012’s “The Amazing Spider-Man”, with director Marc Webb now officially freed of the shackles of the origin story. Andrew Garfield continues his excellent portrayal in the title role, and Emma Stone has gelled nicely into her performance of Gwen Stacy. I’ll even admit to being wildly […]

Like Someone in Love

I’m a late-comer to the Abbas Kiarostami band wagon, but I’ve been duly impressed with the limited selection I’ve experienced so far. It’s probably just short of criminal, that I haven’t seen 1997’s “Taste of Cherry”, 2000’s “The Wind Will Carry Us” or  2003’s “Ten” by this point, with my only excuse offering being, “so […]

Julianne Moore wins at Cannes for Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars”!

Maps to the Stars trailer David Cronenberg lovers rejoice! Julianne Moore fanatics too! You can read all about the Cannes Palme d’Or winner, and the takers of the various other prizes, elsewhere—but here you’re going to hear about “Maps to the Stars” only—and Moore’s Best Actress prize. Cronenberg’s latest is expected to arrive in the […]

“X-Men: Days of Future Past” should break 100 million this weekend!

And it just might accomplish that feat in 3 days instead of 4. Yes, the Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and the weekly blockbusters just keep on coming. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” kicked off the month of May, and last week “Godzilla” roared to the top of the pack. But now it’s time for […]
