Margot Kidder

I had a discussion over the phone recently with Margot Kidder(Superman, Amityville Horror, Sisters) regarding her new film, ‘Love At First Kill’. Actually, we talked about more than just the movie, and the film was made about three years ago, directed by the late John Daly(producer, Platoon and Terminator). MK(Margot Kidder): Hi, where are you […]

Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel

Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel

| December 14, 2010

I like a smart, well-written documentary put together by a person who did their homework.

Janeane Garofalo: If You Will – Live In Seattle

Janeane Garofalo: If You Will – Live In Seattle

| September 29, 2010

Cynical and sarcastic- these are the two best words I can use to describe stand-up comedian Janeane Garofalo. But then again, which comics don’t fit this bill? It’s just that Janeane’s style of humor is so dry, I don’t know if I’d ever be able to have a conversation with her, let alone laugh out […]
