October 13th, 2006 · No Comments

I’ll keep it short but sweet - “The Departed” is no “GoodFellas” (nor was I expecting it to be), but this is one helluva movie. Great performances all around from Leo and Matt (neither of whom I was ever a fan of), to Martin Sheen and of course the always excellent Jack Nicholson. [...]

I’m Baaack!!!!

October 4th, 2006 · No Comments

What’s up world? After 2 1/2 years of being offline on this blog, I’ve decided to come back to it. The main reason for my inactivity? Laziness. But there were also other reasons (too many to mention without boring my audience). But now, after re-reading my old blog, I’ve regained [...]
