reviewed The Quiet Man. December 19, 2008
The Quiet Man
The first time I saw "The Quiet Man" some 20 or so years ago I was not all that thrilled with the idea.  This is one of my wife's favorite movies and I watched it just to make her happy.  …

snow patrol
I really like Snow Patrol mainly because they have a lot of power with their music.  I listen to their songs and I feel energized, so to speak.  It's like watching a movie where you really feel …

Guinness
Guinness is one of my favorite beers.  The thick, creamy brew feels like you're almost drinking a dessert.  Interestingly enough, a Guinness has less calories than the same amount of a regular …

Guinness
I have to begin by saying that I'm a little bias when it comes to beer. There are so many beers that I haven't tried, but of the ones that I have had, I can be very picky. I don't really care for American …

Recently I was given a copy of "A Year In The Life of William Shakespeare: 1599" as a gift.  Although I am an avid reader of non-fiction I initially balked at reading this volume because …
reviewed The Wind That Shakes the Barley. January 02, 2008
The Wind That Shakes the Barley
I liked this film, although it wasn't perfect. It was well done, by an all Irish cast, filmed on location, or close to it, and fairly true to history for a piece of fiction. The brutality and the bitterness …

The Wind That Shakes the Barley
Pros: Decent acting      Cons: Everything else      The Bottom Line: I will reiterate the last line in the review: Finally I just didn't care.      …

The Wind That Shakes the Barley
'The Wind That Shakes the Barley' transports us to its setting like few movies do. Like a taste of Ireland's Guinness Beer, the movie makes a strong impression that leaves a long aftertaste. Screenwriter …

Cinderella Man (Widescreen Edition) (2005)
James Braddock had two great opponents in his lifetime, Max Bauer and the Great Depression. We see with what finesse he is able to confront both in this stylish and lovable movie. Braddock is a fine boxer, …

Cinderella Man (Widescreen Edition) (2005)
With all the hype that surrounded this movie, I thought it would not be too good, especially since I recently saw a documentary on the life of Jim Braddock. However, this is one instance where the movie …

Cinderella Man (Widescreen Edition) (2005)
Not being a fan of boxing I usually avoid movies about the sport unless there is some other reason for watching (as in Million Dollar Baby, the initial Rocky film): the idea of watching two people beat …

Otherworld
Two summers ago, my wife and I rented a summer house in County Kerry, along the shore of the Iveragh peninsula. Of course, that meant that we had to eat many meals and drink many glasses of stout (my …

Haunted Ground: A Novel
I understand that this book is to be the first in a series, and I do look forward to the next one. The tale is excellent, with finely-drawn characters, and just the right touch of eerie Irish countryside …

Miller's Crossing
This is one of the earlier collaborations by the Cohen brothers who co-authored the screenplay, directed by Joel Cohen. I enjoyed it more when I saw it again recently than I did the first time almost …
