Raging Bull.jpggodfatherStalag 17.jpg

With the 2017 89th Academy Awards a mere hours away, it felt like the right time to post a new Oscar centric list. With this one, I thought I’d tackle the Top 10 Best Actor Winners given that this year’s Best Actor category looks to be an interesting one between Casey Affleck (“Manchester By The Sea”), Denzel Washington (“Fences”), Andrew Garfield (“Hacksaw Ridge”), Ryan Gosling (“La La Land”) and Viggo Mortensen (“Captain Fantastic”). It must be said that this was a tough list to write. I could have easily put Dustin Hoffman (“Rain Man”), anything by Daniel Day-Lewis, Ben Kinglsey (“Gandhi”), Rex Harrison (“My Fair Lady”), George C. Scott (“Patton”), Yul Brynner (“The King And I”), Alec Guinness (“The Bridge On The River Kwai”)  or Ernest Borgnine (“Marty”), but at the end of the day, I went with 10 actors whose iconic performance are a huge part of film history. On with the list (which is in no particular order)! Continue reading

The Book Of Eli Blu-Ray

“The Book Of Eli” stars Denzel Washington as a mysterious man wandering “West” in a post-apocalyptic US with a sharp blade and a book which may mean the beginning of new life in the devastated country.  Not far into the film, we see where civilization has deteriorated as Eli encounters ambushes and witnesses brutal behavior by gangs roaming the countryside.  When he walks into a small town, his troubles really start as Gary Oldman, a local leader of the town, suspects that Eli is carrying the book he has been seeking to build his power base.  Mila Kunis plays a sassy teen who wants to go with Eli on his quest.   Jennifer Beals is her blind mother and main squeeze of Oldman’s, and Ray Stevenson is the gang member with a soft spot for Mila. Tom Waits has an excellent cameo as the town trader and electronic expert, who recharges Eli’s first generation iPod. Michael Gambon also has a short but sweet character cameo. Continue reading
