They Will Win Golden Globes 2018

The Golden Globes are already coming up. The show will be on NBC this Sunday and Seth Meyers debuts as host. Should be a solid experience, but perhaps with few surprises. One thing we can be certain of is many references to #metoo, especially on the red carpet. Now here’s my predictions – category by category. … Continue reading They Will Win Golden Globes 2018

The Greatest Hits of 2018

It’s time for that annual list of next year’s highly anticipated Hollywood films. Here’s 2018 for ya. As always, premiere dates may change. JANUARY: * Insidious: The Last Key – The fourth movie in this franchise once again stars Lin Shaye, Leigh Whannell and Angus Sampson.

Today we learned that this trailer for Ridley Scott’s upcoming kidnapping drama All the Money in the World, which opens next month, is already a thing of the past.

The Best of Tony Curtis

In the clip above, an interview with Michael Parkinson that Tony Curtis did in 1978, the Hollywood star talks about how he adapted to Tinseltown when he first got there.

Springsteen’s Career in 11 Rock Clips

During my vacation, I read Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run”, the best-selling biography he released last year. At about the same time, there was also an accompanying documentary, Bruce Springsteen: In His Own Words, and an album, “Chapter and Verse”. The Boss may have grown up in New Jersey more or less poor, but he sure … Continue reading Springsteen’s Career in 11 Rock Clips

A Glorious Evening with Hans Zimmer

I’m back from watching the legendary, Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer in concert tonight in Stockholm and my head is full of the themes from movies like Pirates of the Caribbean, The Dark Knight and Inception.

My Oscar Predictions 2017

The ad above shows Jimmy Kimmel explaining to us what it takes to win an Oscar. He’s hosting the show this Sunday for the first time and I’m sure he’ll deliver a solid performance.

Hollywood Stars in Super Bowl Ads 2017

With an authoritarian man in the White House, it was unavoidable that this year’s Super Bowl ads would be political. There were also plenty of movie and TV trailers, but few of them offered any real surprises; we did learn when the second season of Stranger Things premieres (Halloween), but that was about it.  Let’s take a look … Continue reading Hollywood Stars in Super Bowl Ads 2017
