Miami Vice (1984) – Heart of Darkness, and Cool Runnin’

Following the series premiere the first episode following the opener was as edgy and dark (while being as colourful, vibrant and music-filled as Brother’s Keeper). Heart of Darkness (not quite dissimilar to Joseph Conrad’s original story) was written by A.J. Edison, and first aired on 28 September, 1984. Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson) and Ricardo Tubbs…

Dirty Dancing (1987) – Emile Ardolino

The final recommendation from the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book following my screening of Grease is Dirty Dancing. This is a film I hadn’t seen since it was originally released back in 1987 (and I stole some of the music for a drama presentation I was doing in English class). Coming to…

State of Women (November 11, 2015)

Mr. Jones (2013) – Karl Mueller

Penny (Sarah Jones from the sadly short-lived Alcatraz) and Scott…
