CORNWALL Ontario – I have to admit I just saw the best movie in a theatre I’ve seen in years and it was right here in Cornwall Ontario at our local Galaxy theatre. Cineplex, the cheap bastards they are, do not provide us with review passes. They suggest contacting individual studios, as if there’s […]
I was just curious how many, if any, people have seen “The Interview?” My wife and I watched it on VOD Saturday night on our local television service provider. I can see why the North Koreans are a “little” upset at Columbia Pictures / Sony Pictures. The North Koreans, for the most part, are not […]
CFN – What is your favorite Christmas movie? Is it all about Christmas or is it a film you watch at Christmas? Is it a weeper or something darker or funny? What makes a good Christmas movie, the kind you watch every year? The tradition. I’ve always loved Gremlins, but then I can be a […]
CFN – Remember the amazing movie by the late director Robert Altman called The Player starring Tim Robbins as a studio chief? It was a sanitized version of some of the bizarre head games that go on in “the biz.” Or one of my faves of the 90’s, Swimming With Sharks starring Kevin Spacey, […]
I was supposed to make an announcement yesterday and delayed. Frankly I wrestled with whether to go public or not, but after much thought and consideration I have decided to be go through with the announcement. Some may know that my background isn’t journalism, but screen writing. It was my birthday gift to myself when […]
CFN– Why would anyone working in the public shoot nudie photos and complain if they get leaked in 2014? Yes, it’s an invasion of privacy and yes it can be brutal in some ways; but it also is a sport for hackers who the harder it is to gain access, the bigger the rush and […]
CFN – The world is mourning the loss of one of the most fearless actors I’ve ever seen; Robin Williams. It’s reported that he took his own life today at the age of 63. The World According to Garp may not have been the best movie ever made; but it left a stain on […]
MASSENA NY – Theatre’s are a passion for Jeff Szot of JS Cinemas. He and his team have just seen the 56 Drive In join the digital age with a State of the Art NEC Digital projection system installed. The investment; near $100,000 by the time that it’s done, will ensure that families of […]
CFN – They say there is no fool like an old fool. As I write this there is a very very upset 80 year old man by the name of Donald Sterling. Sterling made his name as a divorce lawyer. He is the longest tenured current NBA owner. He also in spite of his […]
CFN – Friday was an interesting day. I watched the movie Her and Facebook went wonky on me. Recently to celebrate our 5th Anniversary of CFN I screened the classic movie Blade Runner at our lovely old Port Theatre here in Cornwall. In Blade Runner the replicants are embedded with memories and have a […]
CFN – I’ve been reading Richard “Bugs” Burnett’s Three Dollar Bill column for more years than either one of us would probably want to count up to. Bugs is an amazing writer. His columns are full bodied and piquant. However he’s jumping on this odd and strange band wagon about comments made from actors […]

CFN – Who doesn’t remember the Mel Brook’s 1974 movie classic ‘Blazing Saddles’? How we all connected with the towns people as they gasped in unison when they saw a ‘Black’ Sheriff ride into town. How we, the audience, laughed with mixed emotion, at the unexpected appearance of a ‘Black’ Sheriff. This masterful script […]

Filmmaker’s Find on 50th Anniversary of the Assassination of JFK Greta And The President by Allison Anders
CFN– Filmmaker Allison Anders (Mi Vida Loca, Gas Food Lodging, Sex and the City, Four Rooms, and the very underrated, Sugar Town) found an unusual bonus in an auction lot she purchased from the Estate of film legend Greta Garbo. A film buff and historian like myself, she uncovered a signature on an old 45 […]
Cornwall Ontario – So I went to our local Galaxy theatre to see Thor: The Dark World. $35 for two adults and one popcorn; without butter. It’s utter insanity and I can clearly see why theatre attendance is not on the rise. I hadn’t seen the first Thor movie and did so […]
