Birdman: The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance, was the strangest film I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen strange.
I’m not counting bizarro sci-fi flicks, like Mesa of Lost Women, about a mad scientist who injects spiders with human growth hormone to create a race of beautiful women, or David Croneberg’s Videodrome (David Cronenberg, ’nuff said). Those films are in a strange category all their own.
Birdman falls in line with more mainstream films such as Ed Wood’s Glen or Glenda, Barton Fink, Mulholland Drive, and Donnie Darko. Strange films geared toward a general audience. That’s where Birdman feathers its nest as the strangest of them all.
Whiplash is the most captivating film I’ve seen in a long time.
Sure, it has holes in the plot the size of the ones in the Dead Sea, but the movie is so intense, that a climactic concert scene elicited loud audible gasps from the audience.
Throw in some bodacious acting, bodacious jazz, and the bodacious ability to be parodied, and you’ve got yourself one bodacious hit.

Alec Baldwin has a history of being a pig.
James Cromwell was arrested last week. It wasn’t his first time behind bars and likely won’t be his last. The Emmy award-winning actor for American Horror Story placed himself in a shipping crate at LAX to protest the way Air France treats primates when shipping them to laboratories.
One of America’s most successful actors, admits he often feels like a failure.
“Life is a failure, but we keep on trying,” Dustin Hoffman recently told a packed audience at the Quick Center at Fairfield University. The audience was abuzz with university students, faculty members, and Fairfield residents who won free tickets through a lottery drawing to the event, “An Award-Winning Conversation with Dustin Hoffman and Francois Girard.”
While hunting down a photo of Matthew McConaughey on the net, I came across an intriguing blog with a post titled “Matthew McConaughey is not my Hero.” It was written by a lady named Melissa. Melissa is a Christian lady. A Very Christian Lady. Surely a lady much more Christian than the likes of myself could ever aspire to be. After the post went viral, she wrote a follow up post, which has also spread like wildfire.
