Catch Me If You Can

I suppose I had a premonition that Michigan was going to loose in the first round of Big Ten Basketball Tournament, so I didn’t even go to Duffy’s to watch the game. Instead I went to movies to see: Catch Me If You Can. The film “tells the true story of Frank Abagnale, the youngest man to make the FBI’s most-wanted list for forgery.” Leonardo DiCaprio turns in a good performance playing the Frank character. Also, Tom Hank convincingly portrays the role of FBI agent chasing Frank. But I’m trying to figure out why Christopher Walken got a Best Supporting […]

Y Tu Mamá También (And Your Mother Too)

Last night before going to bed, I watched the second movie I rented on Friday night. The plot for revolves around two teenage boys whose girlfriends have gone off to Europe for the summer. With raging hormones and no release, they hit on an older woman at a family wedding who turns out to be married to one of their cousins. In chatting up the cousin’s wife, they embellish on their summer plans by mentioning that they plan to take a road trip to this beach called heaven’s mouth. Even though the beach doesn’t really exist, they invite her to […]
