Koch Review

Ed Koch was Mayor of New York City from 1978 to 1989.

He was brash, outspoken and completely represented the city that he led for nearly a decade.

The documentary is no different.

The former Mayor is interviewed, as is other political personalities. Mixed in with the interviews is archival photos and recently filmed footage of the late mayor.

Mayor Koch was the NYC Mayor of my childhood. The documentary was a history lesson as well as really entertaining way to spend a weekend afternoon.

See it if you can.

Vamps Review

Vamps is the story of two female vampires in present day NYC.

The cast is led by Alicia Silverstone, Krysten Ritter and Dan Stevens. The movie was written and directed by Amy Heckerling.

I wanted to see this movie based on the strength of this cast and the fact that Amy Heckerling wrote and directed Clueless, one of my favorite movies of all time.

I am sorry to say that this movie is beneath both the writer/director and her actors.

The premise of the movie is not well thought out. When I keep asking myself when the movie will end, I know its not good.

If you want to see this movie, dont waste your money buying the DVD. Dont even use redbox. Just go to your local library.
