Devil’s DVD Disappointment: Morning Glory

Closing out our actor spotlight of Harrison Ford, I was able to catch his latest but  far from greatest new release of Morning Glory. Director Roger Mitchell (Notting Hill, Changing Lanes) brings us the latest rom-com type movie. Taking a bit of 1987’s Broadcast News then throwing in some different aspects Mitchell shows us the life of a workaholic television show producer.

Episode 51: Spotlight on Harrison Ford

Each month we spotlight a different actor or director and last month was Harrison Ford.  For the first time ever we are doing a follow up to one of our spotlights and who better to feature than Han Solo himself.

Give us a listen, even if you do have a bad feeling about this.

500 Posts, 50 Episodes, and One Year of Podcasting

This week the blog has been a bit bare, but that is on purpose.  For one thing, in the coming weeks, we’re going to have more content than usual (I’ll address that soon enough) and for another, I’ve been stalling so that I can have our 500th post coincide with our 50th episode of the podcast.  And not only did we hit 50 episode and 500 posts, but we also hit our one year anniversary as podcasters, which is the subject of our 50th episode.

We’re excited to be in this position of reaching these landmarks and not slowing down, even a bit, as we reach and pass this point.  While our readership and listenership could be better, our numbers are increasing all the time.   Last year at this time we had an 1/8th of the listeners we do now and probably just as many readers have climbed on board as well.  We have listeners on all continents and in some of the biggest cities, in the biggest countries on the planet.  We have a lot to be proud of.

In the coming weeks we will be doing the 12 Days of Christmas, DA style, which is being spearheaded by the man who never sleeps, Joseph “Mumbles” Wilhelm.  We’ll have our first ever Spotlight Retrospective podcast episode, where we discuss an actor or director that we spotlighted on the blog (the first will be Harrison Ford, which makes sense since his films are what bind us all).  There are changes and additions on the horizon, so stick with us and bring a few friends while you’re at it.

Give a listen to our 50th episode and any others you may have missed along the way.  And, of course, thanks for all of your support:

Actor Spotlight: Regarding Henry

If you woke up one day and no longer remembered who you were or how you got here; what would you do?  Would you find the reflection in the mirror a comfort, or would that reflection be alien?  How would you feel as you got to know yourself; finding that that the person you were, is not who you believe you truly are?  These are the questions that Harrison Ford faces and overcomes as Henry Turner in 1991’s Regarding Henry.

Actor Spotlight: Raiders of The Lost Ark

The powers that be will never get me to call this film…this classic, Indiana Jones and The Raiders of The Lost Ark.  When I saw it in the theaters as a young chap, it was called, Raiders of The Lost Ark.  The poster said so, the credits said so, and the marquee outside the theater backed up both of them.  This is coming from the guy that places Indiana Jones above everything and everyone else.  Well almost everything else.

Devil’s DVD Disappointment: Extraordinary Measures

Extraordinary Measures or, as I like to call it, Indiana Jones and The Lost Enzyme of Pompe is a pretty ordinary film overall. So ordinary that it could have easily been a CBS movie of the week. Read the rest of this entry
