Anyone interested in the Airmen would be much better served heading to New York to see Layon Gray's off-Broadway play, "Black Angels Over Tuskegee." It's brilliant - everything Red Tails should be.
Saw them "perform" before one of the alFresco films at the boardwalk. Not very funny.
maybe some This Hour castaways (heh) can fill some roles as well?
I was wondering how jonovision and bette macdonald found work, now I know.
I remember Lex fondly from our time together at Dalhousie in the early 1980s, and his death comes as a shock. People have captured his essence so well. Let me mention also that he was a pretty decent musician, he was charismatic, and he was a sometime politician. In the latter case, perhaps like Herman Hesse's *Siddhartha*, he achieved in an area if only to show its limitations. I hope his kids can take inspiration from his life and his friends' memories.
I'm somewhat conflicted over this piece. Certainly, The Tree of Life is probably the best film I've seen this year, and I was incredibly disappointed (but not surprised) that The King's Speech won the Best Picture Oscar over The Social Network. However, The Artist, Hugo, and Midnight In Paris are all films I would put in my top 10 this year, and I don't think that a film needs social relevance or originality to be great. Sure, The Artist is a cross between A Star is Born and Singin' in the Rain, but I enjoyed watching it more than almost any other film this or any other year, and it is a film I will probably remember more than The Descendants, which I also enjoyed. Is it a crowd-pleaser? Absolutely. I just don't think that's automatically a bad thing.
Really? Whatever you were paid to write this list it was too much.
The time is always right for an INXS reference, sweet! :)
Gillian and Giles will be a great legacy of Lex, I know he worked hard on getting this going and I personally am looking forward to seeing, Lex was a friend, neighbor and brother Firefighter and I will miss him dearly. Gagetown Fire & Rescue are also hosting a Celebration of Life in Memory of our Brother In Arms on January 14th from 2-4 at the Legion in Gagetown NB.
Although Lex's screenplay GILLIAN AND GILES has been placed on hold due to his untimely death, our financing and distribution is still in place, so we see no reason that the film shall not be produced and distributed in his memory!

Johnny English Reborn Movie story is a noble human quality. It is a quality that makes a man to think for others. Johnny English Reborn movie story is the most valuable and powerful element of success in life. If we make a list of successful person. We will find that their success depends mainly upon this great virtue. I've not fallen for nothing I expect them to try and get the bitrate as low as possible but lovefilm seem to take it even lower than what could be classed as acceptable and add this to what could only be classed as the worst library ever netflix has to be better.

The Rum Diary
A Buried Treasure
“The Rum Diary has been consistently underrated by the critics and under publicized by the studios. Audiences who have been fortunate enough to see it have loved it. I would like to point out a few of its beauties before it disappears from our screens.
Sometimes a film actor seems to rise above all others in his generation and symbolize the mood of a decade. For the 1950’s it was Marlon Brando, in the 60’s Jean Paul Belmondo held the crown, in the 80’s and 90’s Robert DeNiro seemed to most express the period. For this decade Johnny Depp has swept away all contenders. In his new film “The Rum Diary” playing a young American reporter, based on the character of Hunter S Thompson in Puerto Rico during the 1950’s, Depp delivers an iconic performance. His unique style of acting does not rely on dialogue but is based on the use of facial expressions. By simply raising an eyebrow (even when wearing dark glasses), lowering one corner of his mouth into the suggestion of a scowl or putting on a happy face when all around him is mayhem he is able to convey great depths of emotion, wit and humor. By watching his face the audience is able to read into his mind. Very few actors have ever reached this level of screen acting. One of them was Harpo Marx. Depp’s performance is perfectly matched by director Bruce Robinson’s own delicious brand of surrealist humor reminiscent of the Marx Brothers that he developed in his first feature “Withnail and I” in 1987.
The film swings wildly between hilarious comedy (a Fiat 500 driving down a flight of steps with Depp bouncing up and down on the lap of his burly photographer friend),
a suspenseful car chase, a fantastical voodoo sequence, erotic flirtations with the sylph like actress Amber Heard playing the girl friend of a man he despises and direct political statements on the exploitation of the indigenous population of Puerto Rico by unscrupulous agents of American Corporations like Union Carbide. A walk through a filthy garbage dump where homeless children live in the shells of abandoned cars is followed by a trip to an exotic island paradise that is about to be turned into a luxury tourist resort. The reporter is offered a share in the profits if he writes a series of favorable articles encouraging the development of the island.
“The Rum Diary” resembles “The Motorcyle Diaries” based on the memoirs of Che Guevera, in the way it shows the growing social conscience of a young writer searching to find his own voice. At the extreme end of self destructive alcoholism and cynical despair, is the character of Moburg, a burnt out reporter played with verve by Giovanni Risi in a manic performance which is the opposite of Johnny Depp’s understated acting style. Hunter S Thompson will eventually become this character when he reaches the stage of “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” but for now he is still an idealist. Driven by a magnificent central performance, “The Rum Diary” achieves greatness by employing all the techniques of modern cinema used to their maximum efficiency, both entertaining and educating the audience simultaneously.
I am SO EXCITED to see him tonight. It was all over twitter and facebook, so I guess if you're not into social media it would have been easy to miss it. Also due to glitches with their system it was almost impossible to get tickets - it involved almost 4 hours of calling and trying online before I got through.
