SVS: “Air Force One”

AF2

And suddenly, I feel old. Today’s recommendation is made in honor of seeing an aging Harrison Ford on every single page of the InterWebs for the past week. But the fact that he’s so clearly aging is not what’s making me feel old. No, that comes from the fact that Air Force One, currently streaming on AMAZON [Read More...]

SVS: “Lawrence of Arabia”

LawrenceHeader

If we’ve been telling lies, you’ve been telling half-lies. A man who tells lies, like me, merely hides the truth. But a man who tells half-lies has forgotten where he put it. Today’s recommendation is long and asture and definitely a downer, but just as definitely “A Film You Should Watch, Even If You Don’t [Read More...]

SVS: “The Killer”

Killer3

If you’re a lover of high-octane, high-body-count, no-holds-barred action films, yet your only experience with the legendary Hong Kong actioner John Woo is an encounter with his American offerings — the weird-and-massively-uneven (yet oddly fascinating and sporadically “must-see,” at least to me) Mission: Impossible II (on NETFLIX INSTANT) or the surprisingly-competent-and-fun (despite relying on Ben Affleck) Paycheck (on NETFLIX INSTANT), [Read More...]

Ned Devine’s Parting Glass

NedDevine

Take a drink and remember the man. And raise your spirits to the sky. Raise them to Ned Devine. God bless you Ned, and may we be forever in your debt. My Patheos confrère, Kate O’Hare, posted this great Tullamore Dew ad over the weekend. It’s not new, as she mentions. But it’s always welcome, for [Read More...]

SVS: “The Bourne Identity”

Bourne2

Tomorrow’s Halloween, so it’s time for my first-ever horror Streaming Video Suggestion (SVS), right? Except I hate scary movies (which is why doing it today would make it a “First-Ever”), so instead of suggesting one, I’m going to endorse my family’s long-standing tradition of “Watching a Dumb Action Flick after Trick-or-Treating’s Finished” instead. In my (more youthful) [Read More...]

SVS: “Blackthorn”

BlackthornHeader

Given that I was out of town at the start of this week, today sort of snuck up on me. And that means I’m not quite as prepared for a Streaming Video Recommendation (SVS) as I’d like. So I’m going to just toss a Western out there and call it good. Because Westerns are always good. But in [Read More...]

This Week’s Suggestion — “Lilo & Stitch” — And A Quick OOTO Announcement

LiloStitchTeaser

Oh good! My dog found the chainsaw! I’ll be stepping away from the blog for a few days, traveling to New Mexico to give a talk: “The Brutality of Grace: On the Value of Watching Dark and Difficult Films.” So, naturally, I’m recommending a film that’s not even remotely dark or difficult: Lilo & Stitch, one [Read More...]

SVS: “Avatar: The Last Airbender”

Avatar1

I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to recommend today. (The weeks feel like they’re coming two-at-a-time of late, and I’m sort-of-tired. So, yeah. I’m a bit behind. At least emotionally, if not actually.) And then I saw this Crux article on “Avatar: The Last Airbender” from Friend-O-The-Blog Steven Greydanus: “Bending the air: Defying gravity [Read More...]

SVS: “Iris”

IrisStill2

Today’s film is perhaps best thumbnail-sketched as “The Legendary, Dearly -Departed Documentarian, Albert Maysles, Makes A Masterful Documentary About Edna Mode.” It’s a little bit of an over-simplification, because 94-year-old fashion icon Iris Apfel isn’t quite as aggressively sarcastic (or as short) as Edna. But the glasses are spot-on. Yes, I’m talking about Iris, currently [Read More...]

SVS: “Mostly Martha”

mostlymarthaTeaser

Hey, look! Another film about cooking and chefs and saving one’s relationships with one’s children through cooking and chefs! Because last month’s Chef recommendation was just the tip of the “Damaged Family Saved Through The Creation And Consumption Of Fine Cuisine” genre iceberg. OK, I made that last part up. It’s pro’lly not really a genre, [Read More...]
