Movie Review: The Bourne Legacy

Movie Review: The Bourne Legacy

Much to my surprise my date enjoyed this guy-flick aimed at keeping the Bourne franchise alive.  Make no bones about it, this is a “cash in” movie with a somewhat serpentine, but paper thin plot that has many echoes of the past Bourne movies with all the wild physical action, explosions, and car chases you’d

Movie Review: Hope Springs

Movie Review: Hope Springs

Two great actors are in a switch of the stereotypical male/female roles.  Tommy Lee Jones is the one with the perpetual “headache” though in this case it’s a backache that by his choice has him sleeping in the guest room for the last 4 years.  The always reliable Meryl Streep is the wife that is

Things have changed a lot in the frozen food section of the supermarket and we here at Suddenly Solo are pleased at the metamorphosis.

Movie Review: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Frequently poignant, always humorous, and brilliantly played by some top-flight British actors who overcome an only so-so plot making the entire package surprisingly enjoyable. The film is named for the rundown hotel in a small town in India that becomes the home and the interaction-setting for a group of English tourists, somewhat strapped for money,

A Man and a Woman

I just recently re-watched this French film that I had last seen when it was first released back in 1966.  Some of you may remember it because the sex scene of an unmarried couple caused quite a stir at the time.  Of course, today that part seems quite tame.  The couple in the story are in their

The Single Lane

The 2012 V-6 Ford Mustang Convertible gets our SuddenlySolo Seal of Approval this month. While many of us would love to be seen in the latest low-slung, slinky sports car offering, our knees and hips can make the act of getting in and out of these sort of beauties an embarrassing effort punctuated with grunts
