Mansur Ahmed presents Reaching For the Stars On the Shoulders of Stanley Kubrick posted at Mansur Ahmed.




Byteful Travel presents Impressions of The Fountain posted at Byteful Blog, saying, "Writing about a movie in its afterglow, that time when the potency of its feeling is still fresh in one’s mind, is the best time to write about a movie. I was deeply touched by "The Fountain". One could see the film as the outline of every human’s struggle with death, humanity’s seeming inability to learn from its mistakes, or a love poem told in 12 chapters. Not all will enjoy this film for what it truly is because not all can appreciate the depth that it offers. But that’s fine, because we’re all learning together, anyway."

Love Lifts The Crow



As Halloween approaches, I couldn’t resist the urge to watch, The Crow.

Eric Draven (Brandon Lee), a musician turned Avenger, who is killed on mischief night, returns one year later to pay some karmic violence to the oil slicks that killed him and raped and murdered his fiancé and soul mate Shelly(Sofia Shinas).

Along the way, Eric receives the memories of Shelly’s hospital stay before dying, from the mind of Sergeant Albrecht (Ernie Hudson).



Slowly the attacked becomes the attacker as Top Dollar’s Band of Deviants: Grange, Funboy,T-Bird, Skank, and Tin Tin, suffer a well deserved death, by their personal method of frenzy or mayhem.

But it can’t rain all the time. Sarah (Rochell Davis), the “adopted” daughter of Eric and Shelly serves as a feminine component in this masculine tale.

Meanwhile, Sarah’s heroine addicted mother, Darla, gets the scariest wake up call ever, by witnessing the murder of Funboy.

But the final lesson is taught on top of a gothic cathedral as Eric defeats the remaining ring-leader of the street vermin, Top Dollar, restoring balance to the community.

With the assistance of violins to ignite the pain of loss and the strings of a guitar to moan the longing of loneliness or rage of revenge, your feelings will flow.





Lovely language like “this is loaded…which one of you motorcity motherf****** wants to bet me this isn’t…hey fire it up! Fire it up! Fire it up!” offers comic relief to this sometimes heavy film.

But the moods shift continuously as the musical score builds and decreases.

Sure it’s difficult at times to know that the ones we love may be taken away.

However, it’s important to realize “if the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on, is to never stop loving them. Buildings burn, people die, but real love is forever.”

Witches Rule in the Craft


Life is hard enough when you’re a teen. Your parents don’t understand you. Anxiety and isolation are common occurrences, while poor self-image can make you weep inside.

For Sarah Bailey (Robin Tunney) everything is out of balance. Her mother died during child birth. She’s new in town, must wear a school uniform and make new friends.

Enter the witches of St. Bernard’s Academy.

Bonnie (Neve Campbell) walks around constantly concealing her painful burn scars and ignoring the penetrating stares of her peers.

Rochelle (Rachel True) is one of few African-American students at this snooty Catholic school. Her diving skills suffer due to the devious outbursts of Laura Lizzie (Christine Taylor), the stereotypical racist, white skank.

Nancy (Fairuza Balk) is the crazed chick of the group. Her mother’s alcoholic lifestyle and perverted, pedophilic husband push her to crave adventure, power, and revenge.

On her first day of class, Sarah is approached by the horn dog asshole Chris (Skeet Ulrich). He warns her of the witches and asks her out.

By day’s end, the witches tell Nancy that Chris is a jack off who spreads disease and lies. Not convinced of their honesty, Nancy keeps her date with Chris.

But the night ends early when Nancy goes home instead of putting out.

The next day the witches reveal the rumor of her lousy lay status and she confronts Chris. Always, the macho schmuck, Chris shows off for his friends Mitt (Breckin Meyer) and Trey by telling Nancy he won’t go out with her again.

Hurt by these turn of events, Nancy finds solace with the witches and discovers she’s a witch too.

The supernatural quartet assembles a coven and begin dispatching revenge where it’s needed.

Sarah creates a love spell that makes Chris do her bidding.

Bonnie sheds her scars.

Rochelle makes the lovely blond locks of Laura fall to the floor.

Nancy has trouble making her spell work, until she invokes the spirit of Mano. Once she is filled with the power, her step father drops dead, leaving her and her mother $150,000 in insurance money.

All of the ladies believe their lives have improved until events grow nastier.

Sarah is nearly raped by Chris because of the spell.

Bonnie becomes pompous.

Rochelle feels badly for seeing Laura become bald and frightened.

The drama escalates as Nancy goes to a party to hunt down Chris for his attempted attack on Sarah.

She is rejected by him and changes her face to look like Sarah. The other ladies come to the party. Sarah is shocked to see herself straddling Chris.

Drunk and freaked out, Chris backs away from Nancy and falls to his death.

The coven is torn apart.

Friends become enemies.

Yet, power lies at the heart of film.

Having too much power changes people; although, we have free will.

With our free will, we can decide how to respond to a situation.

The witches of St. Bernard make decisions that have a lasting effect on their lives.

Through their decisions, power is used, lives are lost, and redemption is sought.

Strong performances and a perfect marriage of an actress and role, make the Craft worth watching. Fairuza Balk has grown from the worst witch to a psychotic one. Robin Tunney, Neve Campbell, and Rachel True are convincing as misunderstand teens in search of acceptance and happiness. Skeet Ulrich and Breckin Meyer are the perfect arrogant, smart-mouthed punks.

I won’t give away the creepy, crawly conclusion, but if you fear insects and snakes, cover your eyes, count to ten and wait for the Craft to end.

Live Your Dreams With Teen Witch

A saxophone begins blaring sweet love through the air as a steamy dream sequence introduces the audience to Brad and Louise.

The two characters dance around trying to entice the other. Just as Louise leaps to her dream man’s arms, the alarm sounds.

Awake and back to reality, Louise (Robyn Lively) is less than the popular girl. She’s the girl whom everyone treats like a toddler.

Her plain, acne speckled face stays lost in the hallway crowd.

Her closest friend, Polly, isn’t much of a looker either.

To add insult to injury her bratty brother, Richie, managed to stick her diary entry to her English homework. Naturally her ass of a teacher reads the steamy details of Louise’s lust for Brad (Dan Gauthier) to the class.

Mortified, Louise flees to the ladies room.

Gradually, Louise’s interaction with Brad increases since they share many classes.

One night, after flattening her tire, Louise is offered a ride by Brad and Randa, but passes.

Instead she meets an eccentric little lady named Madame Serena.

Louise gets spooked from the woman’s prediction of strange powers arriving on her 16th birthday and bolts.

Everyone, except Polly, is a no show to Louise’s birthday party. However, her powers arrive during her troubled sleep. The next day Louise finds an interesting pendant while chatting with her drama teacher.

Things appear to be looking up when Randa sets Louise up with her nerdy cousin David. Unfortunately, this dude is Buddy Holly and Steve Urkel’s love-child. When she’s had enough of her date from hell, she tells him to leave her alone and he does.

Freaked out by her dates disappearance Louise visits Madame Serena again and the two begin to bond.

The real fun happens as Louise picks and chooses whose life to alter with magic.



Revenge is sweet when it occurs in front of an audience.



Having the ability to make your dreams a reality is at the heart of the film.

As the story progresses our heroine finds her powers are a blessing and curse.

Is popularity everything?

Is love worth having if it’s given unwillingly?

Although, there will never be one right answer, the movie helps you decide.

Big hair. Funky music. Spandex and mini skirts.

Teen Witch is a true 80’s flick that lets your heart sing “It’s never gonna be…the same again. Never gonna be…the same again.

Witch Week


Hello PJ's and A Movie readers.

This week I'll be spotlighting my favorite witch films of the past.

I'll begin with the family friendly flick, The Worst Witch, starring Fairuza Balk, Charlotte Rae, Diana Rigg, and Tim Curry.

Next we'll join the awkward high school life of Louise Miller, in Teen Witch, starring Robyn Lively and Dick Sargent of Bewitched.

The week will conclude with the Craft, starring a more mature Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, Skeet Ulrich, and Rachel True.

Can the Worst Witch Become the Best



What do you get when you put Fairuza Balk, Charlotte Rae, Diana Rigg, and Tim Curry in a film? Snappy dialogue, hilarious shenanigans, and a smack meowing cat.


Straight out of 1986, the Worst Witch, helped me through grade school. Every autumn day I’d awake, get myself together and watch a few glimpses of this classic Halloween flick.


The heroine, Mildred Hubble (Fairuza Balk) lives up to the films title. With her messy hair, wrinkly clothing, poor marks in class, and constant tardiness, Mildred isn’t the first choice for anything.


As if being a screw up isn’t bad enough, Mildred is continuously taunted by Ethel Hallow, the schools top witch.


However, as Halloween approaches, Miss Cackles International Academy for Witches preps for the arrival of the Grand Wizard (Tim Curry).


Each witch auditions for a chance to broom fly in the Grand Wizards welcoming ceremony.


When Zoe Chant-Vestry dips into the Laughter Potion again, Mildred replaces her in the group formation.


However, Miss Hardbroom detests Mildred’s old, ugly broom. Ethel Hallow agrees to lend Mildred her spare, but places a curse on it beforehand.


As expected, Mildred’s whacked out broom causes catastrophe and the night ends as the Grand Wizard flies off to “another gig.”


Will Mildred be expelled? Will Ethel get her comeuppance? Does the Grand Wizard still dig Miss Hardbroom?


The answers and catchy repartee are awaiting you.


So watch the Worst Witch, because sometimes greatness must be learned, not bred.

Monday Man-Harrison Ford



Welcome to this week’s edition of Monday Man.


Today’s spotlight shines on the remarkable Harrison Ford.


Where would American Cinema be, if it weren’t for his performances in some of Hollywood’s biggest crowd pleasers?


Ford’s characters range from the handsome, heroic pilot in the Star Wars Trilogy to a rugged intellect in the Indiana Jones series, and the cold-hearted romantic in Sydney Pollack’s remake of Sabrina.


However, the magic of Harrison Ford’s talent illuminates through his quieter roles in tear-jerker Regarding Henry and the Amish thriller, Witness.




In 2008, Ford reprised the role of the adventurous, archaeologist Professor Jones in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.




This time Indy joins a youth, played by Shia LeBeouf, in search of a crystal skull said to unlock a golden city.


Will doctor Jones charm the ladies, escape ridiculous death traps, and outsmart thugs with witty rejoinders?


Buy or rent the DVD this Tuesday and find out.


Until next time.

Freaky Friday-Smiley Face


Welcome to this week's edition of Freaky Friday.

Today's spotlight shines on a hilarious flick starring Anna Faris called Smiley Face.

Jane F isn't your typical pot-head; she's a flippin fogged up idiot while high.

Because of her love for the mighty green stuff normal activities become a challenge.

The movie begins with her sitting on the Ferris Wheel talking to Roscoe Lee Brown.

Gradually she begins to sober up from her roommate's (Danny Masterson) pot-laced cupcakes and numerous hits on her yellow and orange bong.

As the memories return, Jane realizes she must pay off her weed dealer (Adam Brody) at a Venice Hemp Fest, pay the electricity bill, go to her audition, and avoid being arrested.

A screaming child, an angry bus driver, a creepy, skull f*cking roommate, and a white weed dealer with dredlocks, helps Jane have one of the best trips of her life.

So pop in Smiley Face and turn that frown up-side-down.

Until next time.

Monday Man-Scott Speedman



Welcome to this week's Monday Man Edition.

Today I'm spotlighting Scott Speedman.

Back in the late 90's Scott Speedman was one of the "It" men on the deceased WB Network.

Speedman played sensitive and vulnerable Ben Covington on Felicity, starring Keri Russell, Scott Foley, and Tangi Miller.

True the concept for this show should have resulted in a restraining order set in place against Ms. Porter (Keri Russell), but in the world of entertainment this made for a great back and forth love story.

Skip to the next chapter of Speedman's career and you'll find the darkness of the Underworld, a kickass film about vampires (lycans) and werewolves. The success of the original film spawned a sequel titled Underworld Evolution.

But Speedman doesn't stop at acting around with werewolves and vampires, but took on three masked psychotic teens in the Strangers, starring Liv Tyler.

Curly haired, love-sick stalker, lycans and werewolves, and three masked predators. Whether it's human, animal, or somewhere in the middle, Scott Speedman's characters will sweet talk, maim or fight you if necessary. That is why he's this week's Monday Man.

Until next time.

Wednesday Woman-Jessica Alba





Welcome to this week's edition of Wednesday Woman.

Today we're focusing on Jessica Alba's tiny first film role in Camp Nowhere.

Schools almost out and the natives are restless.

But where to go?

Morris "Mud" Himmel (Jonathan Jackson-Lucky from General Hospital) is not into spending his time at Camp Chip-A-Wa.

With the help of Zack Dell (Andrew Keegan) school bully and Dennis Van Welker (Christopher Lloyd) actor/anybody he wants to be, Mud sets out to create his own summer place.

Come along with the crew as Van Welker turns into a tongue-in-cheek Army guy, a Richard Simmonsesque aerobics instructor, and a flamboyant Broadway buff to gather the parents permission.

Crack open the soda, chips, and candy as the kids run rampant and create a wonderful world of water guns and slides.

Stick around for the end of summer parents weekend that combines a Broadway, Weight-Loss, and Military camp all in one.

Because summer fun doesn't have an address consider visiting Camp Nowhere.

School's Out


Hey there!

Well school's out for most people right now. What better way to kick off the week than with a tribute to the best kids/teen flicks of the past?

In this Monday Man feature we have License to Drive, starring Tiger Beat's boy's of the past Corey Feldman and Corey Haim.

Permed hair. Spandex dresses. Phones with Cords! Gotta love it.

So sit back and reminisce as your daily class schedule begins to fade and you can sleep past 7 am.

School's out but Driver's Ed is still in session.

Monday Man- The Corey's



Once upon a time in the late 80's there were two teen's that had everything. The right looks. The right talent. The right movie, License to Drive.

Corey Haim is lovestruck Les Anderson, a cute, quirky guy who pines for Mercedes Lane (Heather Graham), the girl, not the street.

Come with Les as he fails the written test, but aces the road test with hilariously hard-nosed, coffee obsessed, James Avery (Uncle Phil from Fresh Prince of Bel Air) as his instructor.

Sneak out the house as Les takes granpa's mint condition Caddy, picks up Mercedes, and goes on a crash course with friends Dean (Corey Feldman) , Charles (Michael Manasseri), and drunk driver guy (Henry Alan Miller).

Breathe a sigh of relief with Billy Ocean's Get Out of My Dreams playing in the background.

Cool stunts. Fast cars. Babes and burgers at Archy's.

Isn't it time you got your license to drive?

Freaky Friday- The Skeleton Key


Welcome to this week's edition of Freaky Friday.

Today we take a look at The Skeleton Key starring Kate Hudson and Gena Rowlands.

After the death of her favorite patient Caroline Ellis leaves her nursing home position for a private nurse gig.

Located an hour outside of New Orleans, the plantation home of Violet and Ben Devereaux is decorated with antiques, eerie hallways, and secrets.

One step through the door lets you know this place isn't meant for strangers.

So grab a blanket, beer, and buddy.

They'll be waiting for you.

Wednesday Woman-Nicole Lyn


Welcome to this week's Wednesday Woman.

Today's spotlight shines on the beautiful, Nicole Lyn.

This actress lends eloquence to whatever role she tackles.

Beginning her career at the age of 9, Nicole Lyn has appeared on the series Ramona, Are You Afraid of the Dark and Student Bodies.

However, she made a big leap when co-starring in the Anne Rice mini-series, Feast of All Saints.

She plays the nearly white daughter of Cecile St. Marie and sister to Marcel.

The life of the tragic mulatto is traditionally laced with lies, self-loathing, and death.

Thankfully, Anne Rice puts a dramatic spin on the situation of being linked to two different society's and not finding peace within either.

Nicole Lyn shines as the emotionally tortured and envied beauty of the gens de couleur libre, or the Free People of Colour.

Through the course of the series Marie begins to awaken to the cruelties of life and the trap her multiracial genetics have given her.

Should she follow her heart or give in to the enslavement of being a white man's mistress, like her mother Cecile?

Only seeing this movie will give you the answer, but one thing is certain.

The survival of a vicious attack and betrayal toughens Marie up. It forces her to stand up for her beliefs and move forward in life.

So sit back, grab a snack, and celebrate the Feast of All Saints.

Monday Man-Robert Ri'chard


Welcome to this week's edition of Monday Man.

Today I'm spotlighting rising star Robert Ri'chard.

This young man is best known for his role on the show One On One.

However, he has appeared in My Wife and Kids, CSI: Miami, and Veronica Mars.

But it's his role as the privileged and oppressed Marcel St. Marie in Anne Rice's Feast of All Saints that makes him this week's pick.

Continuing with my feature on cinematic gems filmed in and around New Orleans, Feast of All Saints will satisfy your hunger for heat and hostility.

Set in 19th Century New Orleans, the lives of the gens de couleur libre, or the Free People of Colour are at the center of this tale.

Marcel's birth father, Magloire Dazincourt, the owner of the biggest sugar plantation of the south dies and leaves Marcel, his mother, and sister in the care of his cousin, Philippe Ferronaire (Peter Gallagher).

Soon after Phillippe takes Cecile St. Marie (Gloria Ruben) as his mistress and tells her he will see to Marcel's proper education in Paris.

Will Marcel get to the place he dreams of living?

Watch to see this mixture of lust, power, and prejudice that only the south could create.

Remember to check back for the Wednesday Woman feature on the beautiful lady who plays Marie St. Marie, Nicole Lyn.

Freaky Friday-Interview With The Vampire


Welcome to this week's edition to Freaky Friday.

The creepy flick of the week happens to be set in 18th century New Orleans.

Amidst a time of slavery, voodoo, and vampires, lurks the chill giving, Interview With the Vampire.

The film adaptation of Anne Rice's classic centers around two vampires named Lestat (Brad Pitt) and Louis (Tom Cruise).

Told through flashbacks, the story begins with Louis meeting and greeting his interviewer in a no-tell hotel.

Soon we find ourselves transported back to the brutal antebellum of New Orleans.

While mourning the loss of his wife and child, Louis searches for death and finds it one night in the form of Lestat.

Not long after their meeting, Lestat plants a masculine hickey on Lestat and the rest is history.

Heaving cleavage, repulsive rats and ruby red blood are awaiting you.

Bring a recorder and a crucifix for your Interview With the Vampire.
