I recently watched Casablanca for the first time, and it was AMAZING. If you have never seen it, I only have one question; "what’s wrong with you"? Now that I’ve seen it, I can’t believe it took me so long. Do yourself a favor and watch it NOW. If you’re at work, go home. If you’re at home, sit down in front of the TV. If you’re driving, you shouldn’t be reading this anyway.
In 1993, four years after the original Weekend at Bernie’s was released, Weekend at Bernie’s II came out. This time Bernie is brought back to life with voodoo magic to retrieve the 2 million he embezzled during the first film. Andrew McCarthy (Larry) and Jonathan Silverman (Richard), his former employees, steal Bernie out of the morgue and take him to the Virgin Islands where the cash is hidden.
When I moved to Kansas City at the beginning of last year, I was excited for many reasons. One of which was that my film idol lives here. I know what you're thinking, "what movie star could that possibly be?" He is not a movie star; he is Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star film critic extraordinaire. My husband, a KC native and fellow film student, introduced me to his column when we were first dating, and I have loved both of them ever since.
The summer movie season is well under way. Summer movies usually fall into one of three categories: buddy-cop action film, sci-fi action film, or superhero action film. You know the films I'm talking about: Ludicrous gunplay! Giant explosions! Insane car chases! Plot holes you could drive a semi-truck through! I'll bet that you've gone to one of these summer movies and thought, "I could make a better movie than that!" Well, stop complaining and start doing! Do you have a digital camera and a computer? Well, you’re most of the way there.
