District 9
District 9 is one of those movies that I bought on DVD (though I soon upgraded to blu-ray) on a whim and wasn't burned by a bad movie. This was one of those times that I wish I watched the movie in …

The Endless Summer
The best documentaries are the ones that transport you to a certain place or time, and make you feel like you are a vicarious observer on the scene. 'Endless Summer' does this in spades. Despite …

District 9
Okay, I'm a pretty big sci-fi geek. I watch numerous sci-fi shows and I'm a big fan of most sci-fi films. I enjoy watching science fiction be used as a platform that explores deep personal truths …

For those of you who don't know, Paul the Octopus was an oracle that not only inspired millions around the world this past summer, but put a little hope in the eyes of the soccer teams he would pick …

Invictus (2009)
         Invictus is more about the heart of President Nelson Mandela rather than the Bokks rugby team. This film paints a beautiful picture of forgiveness, courage and the …

I've always had a great admiration for Nelson Mandela, but have only known the very basics about his life and political career. Whenever I saw him on TV I was always captivated by the man who had …

   I just saw this movie this past weekend. I love all sports movies, but this one was different- there was a LOT of history and social messages in Invictus. I think it speaks wonders for sports …

FIFA World Cup 2010 - Final
The 2010 World Cup Final is exciting for fans of World Cup history. Spain and Holland are by far the best two nations to have never won the thing. Spain constantly disappoints, like the Cubs, whereas …

I’ve always had a fondness for movies directed by Clint Eastwood. I always thought that Eastwood directed with a steady hand, revolves around simplicity and that he allows the atmosphere to dictate …

As annoying as the guy who bangs the drums incessantly at the Cleveland Indians game is, this "bee drone" noise is like having your teeth drilled at the dentist.  I look at the "fans" …

Every time the World Cup comes around, there are a bevy of complaints about the futuristic new ball, and every time, the matches have played pretty much the same as they had before. So when the complaints …

Invictus (2009)
I've always been surprised that there haven't been more Hollywood movies about Nelson Mandela. Invictus was worth the wait however. Rather than focusing on the obvious storylines of apartheid South Africa …

Lots of sports movies are produced every year, and almost all are either romance or drama movies; the latter being about some individual or team proving or redeeming themselves to their fans or opponents. …

The movie started off slow and directed like it was a documentary.  A mothership of aliens comes to Earth and stays hovered over  South Africa.  A military orginazation (NMU) sends a team …

'District 9' is one of those movies that blindsided me - I had heard a little about it before seeing it, but few specifics. I was excited and hopeful, usually signs that I'm about to be disappointed. …
