The Coen brothers love old movies, and not just the classics. I remember reading an interview where they discussed their affection for “With Six You Get Eggroll,” which even Doris Day’s most fervent fans do not consider one of her […]

I don’t just want to see this movie. I want to see all the movies that they are making in it. With Channing Tatum as a Gene Kelly-style dancer in a sailor’s uniform, George Clooney as the star of a […]

Trailer: Men in Black 3

posted by Nell Minow

The first “Men in Black” is one of my favorite films of the 1990’s.  The second was a terrible disappointment and clearly hacked up before release as shown by its slim running time and unsatisfying and conclusion.  I keep hoping […]

In a remake of the John Wayne classic that is truer to the Charles Portis book, the Coen brothers have made their most sincere film yet, a western as spare and yet majestic as its unspoiled landscapes. Like all great […]

25 Years of ‘The Goonies’

posted by Nell Minow

Hey you guys!!! Can it really be 25 years since the release of The Goonies? It is not exactly a classic. It is probably best remembered as an early effort from people like teen-ager Josh Brolin and director Richard Donner […]
