    “In Your Eyes” Movie Review

    (Telepathic Telepresence) – – Note: This movie comes close to my technical specialty: video conferencing. Imagine, sometime in the future, being able to video conference (think, Skype) with anyone, anytime, anyplace just like they do here in the movie. And just using your brain and senses (sight, smell, hearing, touch)…..no equipment! Very cool. Dylan (Michael […]

Sometimes he gives you a really good movie. “Blended” is the latter: A low key (for the most part) comedy about two single parents trying to do the best for their kids….99% of the time.

    “The Five-Year Engagement” Movie Review

    (Funny, Quiet, True Life) – – Gotta say this movie was much better than I thought it was going to be.  The audience in the theater was small but vocal (turns out our friend Melanie and her friend were cheering, laughing, and interacting as much as we were…how funny).

    Movie Review: “Bad Teacher”

    “Bad Teacher” Movie Review  (Cameron Diaz, Cameron Diaz, Cameron Diaz) “Bad Teacher” is a better movie than the trailer suggests. Cameron Diaz (as Elizabeth Halsey) is shallow.  The only men who interest her are rich, and she thinks that increasing the size of her boobs will help her attract those men. As the movie opens, she is leaving […]
