My Family (1995)
I was intrigued
The story of a Spanish family going through the routine did not interest me until I found out Michael DeLorenzo was in it. But his such short lived character did nothing for the fact that the movie had many interesting and notable parts to it. Jimmy Smits was ever crazed not like I was used to seeing him from his lawyer days. As always James Edward Olmos has been my favorite. But it was good to see the portrayal of hispanics in this long-winded film. Issues, issues, issues. I put this at the top of the list for movies of this type because it gave a break down of each character and made them hold their weight. I would definitely recommend it as it served the hispanic communtiy very well.
New York Undercover (1994)
Am I ever sad
My show is gone to re-runs to never be returned. This was the excitement of television on Thursday nights along with the shows that came on before it. The story lines were believable, the cast really bonded, and the music (the bomb) set the mood. Natalies' became a forefront for artists of all genre to show their stuff. The clothes were hip, the acting was excellent (until season 4, that is) and the blend made you come back for more. USA is threading the re-runs to pieces by chopping off scenes to make the hour. Cheap shots to Femme thing and their so called movies make/made watching the re-runs unbearable. I miss those days when 'Lou' was hollering at anybody who moved, Michael was confused per usual with the girls and Malik and Chantel or Sandy was going head to head about something. Adding Lauren to the cast was sketchy at first and then she worked in very well. As for Lapaglia, well, leave it alone. He tried, he had a job for a minute. The ever increasingly new faces (some came back as other characters) was well played in to work right along the toe-to-toe cast of old. Boy do I miss this show. Boy do I wish I had taped them, I would have something to treasure. Dick Wolf you truly messed up a good thing just for ratings and little black boxes sakes.
A Few Good Men (1992)
Get a bag of chips and a soda and enjoy
This movie made me realize how tough Demi Moore was in real life. She played the role to the hill. Her skills really came through for me and she seemed to mature faster than ever afterwards. Tom Cruise no doubt laid it on well. He stood his character ground in this and put some real emotion in when he needed to do so. As usual Jack Nicholson, is Jack Nicholson. No doubt in my mind his character here was one of his best performances I had seen to date. He really had a I-can't-stand-his-butt role here. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It took me until the second viewing to realize just who Santiago was and then I had to really look and catch Michael DeLorenzo in this ill-fated, as usual, role. He was the guinea pig who never lived to see how impactful his character was to the making of this excellent movie. But then does he ever live in his movies, NOT!
It was not as scary as I thought it would be.
The story still left me feeling like, 'what the heck was it.' The main reason I went to see it was because it was Michael DeLorenzo's first role after leaving New York undercover. I have a web site dedicatd to him, so I needed to see what it was about.
