Geena Davis – Born January 21, 1956

I love and admire Genna Davis. She is an amazing actress and thoughtful human being, and one of those people that I think it would be fun to break-bread with. Just picking her brain on the topics of the day would be mind-blowing.

Noteworthy

  • Transylvania 6-5000 – This is an oldie but a goodie. Genna Davis is a vampire in this movie, vamping for all it is worth. Her scenes with Jeff Goldblum are hysterically funny and worth watching the whole movie for.
  • Beetlejuice – Who doesn’t love Beetlejuice. A straight role for Davis but still a movie that I can rewatch over and over.
  • A League of Their Own – In my top 100 comedies. Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell – stellar casting and such a fun movie to watch. Genna Davis is the mother figure for the Peaches and this semi-true story becomes as heart-warming as it is fun to watch.
  • Cutthroat Island – I know people hate this movie. I am not one of them. Now, I will confess that I will watch almost anything with a pirate in it but I like this movie. Not an award winner but still a hell of a good pirate flick.
  • The Long Kiss Goodnight – DAMN! If you have not seen this you are missing out. Girl power all the way and Davis is flat out fantastic in this action thriller. Shane Black is the man and I wish that he and Geena Davis would make a sequel.

If you risk nothing, then you risk everything.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Born February 17, 1981   Joseph Gordon-Levitt just keeps getting more interesting and broadening his artistic sights. It seems as if there is nothing that he will not try and when he tries it... well he rocks it. Noteworthy Snowden - JGL take son...

Linda Blair Exorcisms Original Bad Girl

Linda Blair - Born January 22, 1959 An icon of the horror genre, Linda Blair Exorcisms Original Bad Girl, will always be tied to The Exorcist from 1973. This movie set her in the limelight but I am not sure that it actually did her any favors. Noteworthy The Exorcist...

What Kind of Gamer are You?

What Kind of Gamer are you? What kind of gamer am I? I was asked this recently and it made me stop in my tracks. What kind of gamer am I? One that plays games, isn't that enough? Now, in a day with so many games to choose from and all falling into different...

Christopher Walken

Christopher Walken Born March 31, 1943   Christopher Walken is one of those actors that you look for in a movie, that you hope will pop up in a cameo for no good reason. Walken improves any film he makes an appearance in. His quirky nature, his odd delivery of lines...
