50 Anticipated Movie Sequels & Remakes releasing in 2013 and beyond

Cause see “They figured ONCE wasn’t Enough” !! ..fa Real.

Thing is, in most cases “Once was really, really, really MORE than Enough” but whose counting? With the price of admission being what it is these days and the cost  (gas) to get to the Theater, throw in the popcorn and drinks, going the Movies these days is remarkably, an Event. So, if you think it’s Ok to spend $50 bucks plus to sit up and look at a screen filled with less than stimulating dialogue and lots of camera tricks, who am I to Stop you. Go for IT !! Personally I’d rather screen the trailers first online to see if it is really all worth my time. Sometimes those “trailers” can prove to be way more interesting than the actual Movie Theater reels. Anyway, who gives a shit, sometimes you just gotta not think about consequences. Happy Movie viewing ya’ll.

Late Night with Bill Eddins Last night was spent at Late Night Symphony at the Winspear Centre. Probably one of the best Friday night’s spent in Edmonton. I had the pleasure of listening to conductor Bill Eddins work the audience throughout the night. His humour, suave and talent kept the crowd on their toes. The music featured in last nights performance was inspired! Hollywood was the theme, so you can image the talent it takes to score a film. The orchestra played songs from the classic James Bond … – – Read more:

Thank You KEN RUSSELL R.I.P.

Champagne. Soap bubbles. Baked beans. Melted bon-bons. Four images - all part and parcel of perhaps the most famous scene he ever committed to celluloid (which, in this instance, is definitely saying something grand) - that seemingly conjure up so much of the universe of peerless British stage and film director Ken Russell. With or without Ann-Margret in a white leather cat-suit, Russell’s TOMMY is one of the most unique and enduring movie musicals of the later half of the twentieth century and his other music-based films provide a plethora of information and insight (not all of it factual and much of it often quite admittedly wrongheaded) - so, for those alone, Russell is due much praise as far as theatre fans are concerned. Yet, with WOMEN IN LOVE, Russell mastered a quite different milieu - that of Victorian sexual politics - and brought the leading lady of that picture to both an Oscar nomination (which Ann-Margret also received for TOMMY) and a win; Glenda Jackson - a frequent Russell collaborator - taking top honors for her work and later re-teaming with Russell throughout her film career. Look no further than Russell’s adaptation of Oscar Wilde's SALOME - or even Jackson’s cameo in THE BOY FRIEND - for more of their palpable, playful, endlessly enjoyable onscreen rapport. So, too, did Ken Russell give Kathleen Turner and Theresa Russell (no relation) the roles of their careers with CRIMES OF PASSION and WHORE, respectively, and that’s to say nothing of his long-standing and loving actor-director relationship with Oliver Reed, whose best work resides in Russell’s still-banned Catholicism and exorcism consideration, THE DEVILS. Both an actor’s director and a director’s director, Russell was always passionately committed to his vision for the potential property and that was both a gift and a curse - as is clear to see in this collection of clips. The eccentricities and excesses may be overwhelming for some, but, over the course of his fifty-year career, Ken Russell broke down barriers and created films that we may enjoy, analyze, debate and cherish for many decades to come.
