Mickey Blue Eyes

I think Mickey Blue Eyes can fall under one of Hugh Grant's lesser known or forgotten movies. It might have been popular at its initial release but this isn't a movie you would immediately associate with the actor. Grant plays a curator at an auction house who proposes to the love of his life. When she rejects, he finds out that it's because she belongs to a mob family. Now he has to figure out a way to keep true to his fiance while trying not to get himself involved with the mob.

Thursday Movie Picks: Non-English TV Shows

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. Television shows dominate every last Thursday of the month, with this month’s theme being non-English TV shows. The only non-English TV shows that I usually watch are East Asian shows, with all my picks coming from Japan. Here are my picks this week.

Demolition Man

It’s 2036 and it’s a different Los Angeles in Brambilla’s Demolition Man, an entertaining action piece starring Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes. They play John Spartan and Simon Phoenix respectively, and we meet their characters in a crossfire after years of Spartan trying to catch Phoenix. When the incident goes awry, it sends both of them into a cryogenic prison where they would be kept frozen until their respective parole hearings years later.
