7 Best Movies About Teaching

Written By

Okay, so teaching is my day job.  Which, for one thing, means I’ve got time right now to make random lists about random topics.  Gotta love summer.  While duly rewarding and quite fun, real-life education sometimes isn’t as romantic or violent or uplifting as cinema depicts.  However, all these films have spot on moments and […]

Jason Bateman's Seven Greatest Roles

Written By

This weekend, I finally got around to seeing Horrible Bosses in the theatre, starring Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day as three miserable 9 to 5’ers who hate their bosses enough to plan for their murders.  I wasn’t surprised at how much I enjoyed it (Jennifer Aniston’s sexually harassing dentist not withstanding) but I […]

10 Best Reality TV Shows

Written By

I am at an age that has allowed me to have a front row seat for the development of the Reality TV craze.  My children hardly know a world where every other show on prime time (and otherwise) isn’t reality.  I, on the other hand, vividly remember how fascinating the first season on The Real […]

7 Best Songs About Summer

Written By

It’s about as smack in the middle of summer as we can get.  And I live in Arizona.  As exhausting and prohibitive as the heat can sometimes be, this is still summer.  And that still means no school, hanging out on the nearest body of water, and long nights to do whatever things it takes […]

7 Greatest Acting Performances That Didn’t Win an Oscar

Written By

Often times, the Academy does a pretty good job.  Occasionally, someone gets screwed.  Oscar snubs and surprises are hot topics every year in early March.  Sometimes a performance flies too far under the radar in a film with limited release.   Sometimes a performance in an ensemble epic is lost in shuffle (Sean Astin in Lord […]

Not only do they tend to be Oscar bait for their starring actors and actresses, movie biographies also are often historical, enlightening, and immensely entertaining.  Often times, a movie biography can explore its subject in an even deeper way than a documentary can.  This is one of the tougher lists to narrow down, but here’s […]

5 Greatest Sports Movies of All Time

Written By

A great sports movie typically has everything you need: conflict, tension, suspense, humor, and triumph.  Sometimes even a little romance.  And who doesn’t like to see over-confident, puffed up favorites get schooled by an underdog?  Sports movies even come in every genre: epic (Chariots of Fire), drama (Rocky), comedy (Bull Durham, even musicals (Damn Yankees).

While driving to the Circle K to return Toy Story 3 to the RedBox (what would someone fifty years ago think of that phrase?) I heard a great version of Our Lips Our Sealed on the radio.  The Go Go’s original is one of the greatest pop songs ever written, and the version I was […]

7 Best Summer Movies of 2011

Written By

Hollywood spends millions of dollars every summer marketing and distributing movies that, by definition are “more.”  More exciting.  More funny.  More thrilling.  Increasingly, moviegoers seem to be somewhat disappointed with summer fare.  There is always a blockbuster or two every summer, but the overall consistency of summer films has dropped somewhat recently.  With this summer […]
