Hello, I am Jack's life. I was born a poor black chi..... no, wait a minute... that was definitely someone else. I was born in the wannabe city of Portsmouth, VA. My childhood was fairly run of the mill. My father was some sort of Titan descended directly from Zeus's loins and my mother must have been a dark creature from the netherworld. I grew up with two of the founding members of this group and amazingly still tolerate their continued presence (or maybe it is the other way around). After my eighteen years of forced captivity I set out into the world determined to conquer all who opposed me...... clearly things didn't work out as planned. Since life usually sucks I turned to movies as my escape. They did the job pretty well. Then I discovered what you mortals call alcohol. So naturally I made dispensing this glorious liquid my profession. It has served me pretty well through the years. I have met many great friends and several concubines this way (some have worked better than others). Now i wait to see what fate has in store for me. All told, your normal everyday Jack, until my true plans come to fruition.............. (insert evil laugh here)

This was one of the toughest weeks yet.  I dug around forever trying to find a movie that I felt truly personified loss.  I probably watched 10 different films before I found this little gem.  Once I finished watching “Departures” … Continue reading

Jax’s Week #25 Recommendation: The Wackness (2008)

Think back for a second…. take a trip to the summer of 1994.  Do you remember what you did?  Where you were in your life?  Who you spent your time with?  I’m willing to bet your summer was nothing like … Continue reading

Jax’s Week #24 Recommendation: Der Baader Meinhoff Komplex (2008)

Ahhh… Now we get back to doing more traditional pieces of cinema.  It feels great to get away from the horror movies for a little while. Not that I don’t love them, I was just ready for something a little … Continue reading
