They Never Gave Up on You - WHITE SQUALL (1996)

Great Scene & Soundtrack (not all of it) & one of Ridley Scott's most underrated films. Based on a true story in which the brigantine ALBATROSS, a school ship, went over in a White Squall. Three students, the wife of the captain, and the cook all perished in the freak accident. And speaking of a white squall, does anyone know what one is?'s described in the screenplay as a wall of wind and water, something rarely ever seen at sea... a freak storm so to speak.

Wade takes Action! The River Wild (1994)

Kevin Bacon has played some great characters over his career and his diversity as an actor is top notch... but he's also played some memorable villains in the past... and in The River Wild... an #underrated 90s thriller (1994 was a fine year for movies) he plays Wade... a cold... calculated... and charismatic murderer who will stop at nothing to get down river!


This is a short piece for a longer film I wrote this week. It’s very personal to me, so hopefully I do justice to the performance, and I want to thank Richard Lambert for shooting this today and his brother, Chris Lambert for helping with Direction. I haven’t written much to date, but intend to develop this in to the slightly longer short and other projects going forward. I hope it resonates with everyone that has lost someone close to them in a positive way. I have very happy childhood memories and I dedicate this to my father, Patrick. He left this earth too soon. RIP Dad. I would really appreciate your feedback.

Analyzing a Scene -- Tristan's Revenge / Legends of the Fall (1994)

Walking out of that tent like a boss! -- Such a great scene ...let alone a criminally underrated movie & probably Pitt's best performance to date. -- Just look at the way the Camera slowly pans up on the Germans ...almost like it's Tristan's P.O.V. (although it's not) go along with that haunting theme as it builds (the late & great James Horner) well as the LOOK in Pitt's Eyes... Love the film... One of my favorites of the 90s! -- So Powerful.
