"THE MURDER AT THE VICARAGE" (2004) Review




"THE MURDER AT THE VICARAGE" (2004) Review

I have another of my many confessions to make . . . I have never been a big fan of Agatha Christie's 1930 novel, "The Murder at the Vicarage". Never mind that it featured the first appearance of elderly sleuth, Miss Jane Marple, in a feature-length novel. I am just not a big fan. Read more...Collapse )

"HEAVEN AND HELL: NORTH AND SOUTH BOOK III" (1994) - EPISODE ONE Commentary.

If there is one chapter in John Jakes' NORTH AND SOUTH saga that is reviled by the fans, it the television adaptation of the third one, set after the American Civil War. First of all, the theme of post-war Reconstruction has never been that popular with tales about the four-year war. More importantly, fans of Jakes' saga seemed to have a low opinion of "HEAVEN AND HELL: NORTH AND SOUTH BOOK III", the 1994 adaptation of Jakes' third North and South novel, published back in 1987.

"PRINCE OF PERSIA: SANDS OF TIME" (2010) Review

When the Disney movie, "PRINCE OF PERSIA", was first released in theaters some six years ago, I had heard a movie reviewer on radio talk show compare the Disney film to the 1962 Oscar winning film, "LAWRENCE OF ARABIA". Much to the detriment of the Disney film. And as I sat there and listened to this guy bash "PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME", it occurred to me that there were still plenty of idiots in this world . . . including radio disc jockeys.
