Brendan Gleeson Triple Feature

Happy Birthday, Brendan Gleeson! This in demand, Irish-born actor turns 65 on March 29, so this is the perfect time to celebrate his work with a Gleeson triple feature.  Gleeson has starred in lots of big movies since his film career began in 1990, including “Braveheart” (1995), “Michael Collins” (1996), “28 Days Later…” (2002), “Gangs of New York” (2002), the “Harry Potter” series, and “Suffragette” (2015). His impressive resume offers countless choices to highlight, but let’s look at a film from director Michael McDonagh and two more from his director-brother…

10 Bad-relationship Movies: 7. ‘Heathers’

“Heathers” (1988) – Ah, the new kid.  The new kid at school automatically qualifies for attention from other students, because he or she is an unknown. “Who is the new kid?”   “What’s her deal?”   “Where is he from?” Someone new – at school, work or a social club – can offer a fresh perspective, and in this case J.D. (Christian Slater) certainly offers one at Westerburg High School in Ohio.  He’s a dark, brooding loner and speaks a lot like Jack Nicholson. Veronica (Winona Ryder) has recently grown tired of…

Happy Belated New Year!  Geez, all of a sudden, the calendar flipped ahead another year, and before one can say, “If I had a checkbook, I would stress about writing the wrong year on my checks,” the 76th Annual Golden Globes will arrive too.  Sunday, Jan. 6, to be exact. The second-biggest movie-awards event spreads the wealth, because it splits the best films and lead performances over two categories, Musical/Comedy and Drama, so King Midas works a bit of overtime.  We are happy to work more as well, and although…

Tremblay, Roberts and Wilson kindly deliver in ‘Wonder’

“Wonder” – Be kind. Auggie (Jacob Tremblay) walks with his parents – Isabel (Julia Roberts) and Nate (Owen Wilson) – towards Beecher Prep for his first day of middle school, and he is terrified.  Sure, middle school can be terrifying for just about any kid.  Think back to your years during that preadolescent and adolescent brew of confusion mixed with caste systems of rumors, doubt and Darwinism that distract from the primary tasks at hand: reading, writing and arithmetic. His future schoolwork does not concern him, but the potentially toxic…
