Film Review: ‘Rebel in the Rye’!!

by Janet White on Oct 14th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

The Catcher in the Rye took the U.S. by storm nearly from its initial printing. The author, J.D. Salinger, transformed from obscurity to magnified limelight causing him to retract from the world. The more the public wanted to know him or be his infamous character, Holden Caulfield, the more withdrawn Salinger became which increased the mystery. In the past 66 years, the novel has been printed, re-printed, translated and massively distributed throughout the world.

From his early years as a willful, smart mouth to an obsessed literary giant. Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘Foxcatcher’!!

Miller has an uncanny knack for telling compelling stories that are based on real life events and engaging the audience to not only be entertained, but to think and discuss these characters and sometimes real people’s motives in what they did in their particular story. You can add to that, Miller’s success in getting his actors to win Oscars almost across the board, and this very dark and creepy film ‘Foxcatcher‘ is no different.

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2011

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

Bennett Miller is known for getting the best performances out of his actors, and thus for earning them Oscars. Philip Seymour Hoffman won Best Actor for Capote, and Brad Pitt is getting nods and buzz for Moneyball. Now, he’s possibly letting Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe) and Steve Carell (Evan Almighty) ride his coattails for a new film that’s already generating some Oscar talk.
