American Gangster is Pure Oscar Bait, but it works! Michelle’s Review

November 2, 2007




I’ll admit it, I’ve never been much of a fan of Denzel Washington, he’s a great actor but for some reason he just never did it for me. But in American Gangster Denzel captivates and hold the screen. He’s both charming and disarmingly deadly at the same time. I generally love gangster films but hate the over glorification of the lifestyle. Never once in AG did I feel American Gangster glorified Denzel’s Frank Lucas. Read the rest of this entry »

Bee Movie EclipseMagazine.com Movie Review

Jerry Seinfeld’s first excursion into the realm of CG animation is a lively, sleek [82 mins] legal comedy, ecological fable and unlikely romance – starring bees. Thanks to Dreamworks Animation and a heartfelt script, Bee Movie is actually the second movie I’ve seen in the last little while to warrant audience applause.

Morgan Freeman Talks to EclipseMagazine.com’s Michelle Alexandria!

Morgan Freeman Talks About Feast of Love, Batman and more. EclipseMagazine.com Interview

Last month I caught up with Morgan Freeman at the LA Press day for Feast of Love, a small Indie film that had a limited release a few weeks ago with the hopes of having it go wide in the coming weeks. Feast of Love is a small indie film that talks about the various stages of love from the perspective of 3 different couples – one young couple in love, to the middle aged couple who end up getting a divorce and Freeman and his wife who have been together for several years. Check out my review. Morgan was in a great mood for this round table interview and was surprisingly funny and was a little reluctant to talk about Batman, but our friend Frosty over at Collider kept at him till Morgan gave us a quote. It’s funny Frosty and I was battling over who gets to ask the Batman question and I told him to go for it. Check out the interview it was fun, and I expect the studio will do an award campaign around this film. In this really weak year, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Morgan get some attention in the supporting actor category for this.

So we talked a lot about Iron Man, what the atmosphere on the set was like, the character she plays, one of my old Favorite TV shows Popular (for some reason I got all giddy when she mentioned that one of her closest friends is fellow Popular co-star Carly Pope, what it’s like to be on the cusp of becoming an “A-List Actress,” her latest film Wristcutters: A Love Story and a whole lot more. It’s a fun informative 15 minute interview click the link below to listen.

Dan Burns is a widowed advice columnist with three daughters. Hmmm… My Three Daughters? No, not nearly. Dan in Real Life is an old-fashioned, family-friendly comedy with genuine heart and some new nuances for what should’ve been a formulaic flick.

Gone Baby Gone EclipseMagazine.com Movie Review 

As I watched Ben Affleck’s directorial debut, two thoughts crossed my mind repeatedly: crime stories set in Boston are far nastier and grittier than those set anywhere else – and Thelonious Monk was right!
