The Hebrew Hammer

The Hebrew Hammer

If they are showing this film in your area, which it should be, you have to go see it. Nothing like a Jewploitation film to celebrate Hanukah.

You get to see tons of shots in my neighborhood, including one at the end of my street.

Angels in America

So I took some hours out of my busy life to watch the first part of 'Angles' tonight. It is worth the three hours. (Well for me almost four with the times I had to pause it to make dinner.) If the film went to movie theaters it would be hard for it to not be the best picture. Every dollar that HBO shows up on the film, the special effects are great. They only add to the story, they don't overpower it.
