My Take by Jim Carl - April 5, 2012

A fond remembrance of twelve-year old Jim sneaking into an "R" rated movie and being disappointed having done so.

NEIGHBORS (1980)

My Take by Jim Carl

The rise and fall of Generation X was entirely the fault of Pulp Fiction.  Discuss.

SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE (1982)

My Take by Jim Carl - March 7, 2012

Gottaaaah rock.

THE DOORS (1991)
Oliver Stone’s The Doors unfortunately coincided with the sinful years I spent living in New York, working in the production offices of TV series like The Equalizer and Law and Order, and behaving like an entitled, over-stimulated, narcissistic, twenty-something jerk.  Ask anyone who knew me in those days and they’ll probably tell you that I’m not exaggerating; or better yet, don’t.  As you can tell, my memories of this time may be slightly tainted with humility.

My Take by Jim Carl - February 29, 2012

Wherein Jim admits being a "sucker for sentimentality."

HEAVEN CAN WAIT (1978)

My Take by Jim Carl - February 22, 2012

Picture Jim as an irate customer.  Hard to imagine that!

DEADTIME STORIES (1986)

My Take by Jim Carl - February 8, 2012

If you ask him, I'll bet Jim still has that Megaforce Fan Club card.

MEGAFORCE (1982)

My Take by Jim Carl - February 2, 2012

Wherein Jim reveals that Gena Rowlands' performance in Gloria changed his preconceived ideas about the role of women in movies. Thank you Gena Rowlands, thank you very much!

GLORIA (1980)

My Take by Jim Carl - January 25, 2012

It's a terrible movie, but it's got Fu Music!

MY TAKE is a blog about my funny life experiences that happened to involve movies, and how I found myself in charge of programming films for a living.  I’ll discuss how certain movies came to be responsible for my bad attitude, memories, associations, personal beliefs, and plain stupidity. Yes, I fully intend to trash films considered sacred in certain circles, and will probably offer a poor explanation for doing so.

My Take by Jim Carl - January 18, 2012

Is there a trailer you seemingly watch every time you go to the movies?  A trailer that you’re sick of seeing?  So sick that you’ve vowed to never see the movie?  Tell me about it.
