Noteworthy

  • The Quick and the Dead – I LOVE this movie. Crowe plays a former gunslinger forced to be one again. He is in a quick draw competition set up by Gene Hackman. Maybe not his best role but a flick that I love.
  • Gladiator – Crowe is Maximus! Great period piece set in the Roman Empire. Ridley Scot at his best… maybe? This role got him an Oscar.
  • A Beautiful Mind – A biopic about John Nash. Crowe plays Nash. Tear jerking and it got him an Oscar nod.
  • 3:10 to Yuma – Crowe is Ben Wade, the baddie in this western. I have watched the old one and the new one, they are both great but Crowe is the highlight of the movie. Though he and Christian Bale do play well together.
  • Les Miserables – Crowe brings Javert to life. I know a lot of people did not dig him in this role but I loved it.
  • The Nice Guys – Crowe plays Jackson Healy. I really loved this movie and Crowe needs to play funny a lot more often. He and Ryan Gosling need to play in Shane Black’s world a lot more often.

There’s an ease that I have living in Australia. The best things about Sydney are free: the sunshine’s free, and the harbour’s free, and the beach is free.

Why Do I Watch

Why do I watch... the Superbowl As another season draws towards the big game and my team didn't make it past the playoffs… again (sigh), I look back on my favorite professional sport and ask myself: “Why the hell do I like this game again?” The longer that I watch...

Zooey Deschanel Triple Threat

Zooey Deschanel Stick around read what I write or what I say on this website enough and you will learn that I highly revere those actors, actresses, and creators of Hollywood's heyday. I would also contend that the actors and actresses of the 40s, 50s, and 60s had to...
