Ralph (pronounced "Rafe") Fiennes doing comedy. Who knew?
It was a bit of a Greek Week here in NYC at movie screenings. I sat through the prequel to the hit movie, 300. The prequel, 300: Rise of an Empire, has more gore, more musclemen Greeks, angry sex and so much more blood gushing at your face in 3D that you feel like you need a towel.
I've been asked back to be a guest film reviewer for the On Screen show hosted by Mike Sargent on Arise TV. The show airs Saturday afternoon.
More Greeks show up to join Mr. Peabody & Sherman in their animated adventures as the cartoon couple goes back in time thanks to the Wayback Machine. Yes, this is a current animated feature based on the cartoons that were a popular part of the Rocky & Bullwinkle Show back in the 1960s.
From ancient Greece, we'll go to Budapest in the 1930s. The new Wes Anderson comedy is called The Grand Bupadest Hotel.
If you associated actor Ralph Fiennes only with deep dish dramas like Schindler's List, The English Patient, Quiz Show and The Constant Gardener...you will have a new attitude about his versatility when you see his screwball comedy turn for Wes Anderson.
If you can, log onto Arise.TV Saturday afternoon and watch us On Screen. The show airs online here in the USA, previous episodes are available on YouTube and it airs on television in London. The show gets posted 4:30p EST and repeats Saturday at 6:30p EST. It repeats Sunday too.
In the meantime, wish me luck in the city today as I go after more TV gigs.
