Running Scared [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Gregory Hines
Running Scared [DVD] DVD ~ Gregory Hines
One of the great cop buddy movies from the 80s. Running Scared's success lies in the strong script from Gary Devore and Jimmy Huston, who deliver some fantastic dialogue between it's two main stars. Headed by Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines. Both light up the camera, with their craziness and eagerness to entertain. It's as if they are doing it personally for you. That is what makes the movie a winner. A lot happens in the film also, many different locations, and you get a real feel through director Peter Hyams for Chicago.

Kiss Me Like a Stranger: My Search for Love and Ar&hellip by Gene Wilder
Gene Wilder is personally one of my favourite actors- and he seems a very humble man in real life. This autobiography is refershingly different given that Wilder has actually penned it- no ghost writers here. It's not traditional either, though some parts are chronological, Wilder dips into his life page by page and this works a treat.

It has its laugh out loud moments as you would expect, but this book is very moving also. It is such a great read. Still puzzled that the great man's last film was Another You in 1991. But hey ho, if he's happy then that is all that counts. A very underrated actor who defined movies in the 70s and 80s. And a superb read.
Suck [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Iggy Pop
Suck [DVD] DVD ~ Iggy Pop
Tongue firmly in cheek with this one. Suck is about a rock n' roll band whose sexy bassist becomes a vampire. Suddenly their loser status is vanquished and they become popular because of it. Though Suck dances close to either being very good or plain average, it comes out a winner because of the likable characters and in jokes which are aplenty. Though to get them you would have to be a fan of rock music. Director Rob Stefaniuk goes the full tilt and brings in some great names. Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Henry Rollins and Moby for starters. Rollins is hilarious as an out of date 80s DJ- (check out the wig). Alice Cooper is just cool. Iggy Pop plays it well too and Moby is unlike himself, all… Read more
