I've been writing this blog since 2005. I have had a number of content specific blogs in the past, but decided in 2013 to consolidate them all back into PJMixer. You'll find photo projects, movie reviews, new music and general thoughts about my life.

Superb, a perfect story showing the true romance of baseball. Sorry to say I don't recall that special 2002 season, but isn't that what movies are for, to bring attention to special events from history, whether that be important historical events or simply the joy of sport. Perfect cast with Hill's Brand such a fascinating character and Pitt bringing Beane back office baseball to the forefront. Lovely track from the very talented Kerris Dorsey. Best movie of the year, tears in my eyes.
Really well done - scary, action packed with some decent human drama. Young actors were superb and added a Spielberg throw-back to ET feeling, but lots more edge and intensity in this sci-fi / horror movie.
Love the mood, music and cinematography. Unusual telling of edgy crime plot. Should it bug me that serious car focused movies, have characters not wearing seat belts ? Gosling lack of dialog doesn't detract from his star power, casting and acting were superb all around. Unconventional with lots to absorb yourself in.
Wow. And you thought you had a tough job. Embarrassed to say I (once again) i learned more about important historical events thru a film that the media. Maybe it's because a movie can focus on one element of a story - but does that endanger its integrity ? Who writes the history books these days, the winners or Hollywood ? Superb acting, fascinating story and very powerful drama.
Excellent. Politics and music - ok for Brit punks, but not US country singers ? Great inside view of a the biz - media, touring, recording. But also very personal story that pulls hard on the heart strings just like a good country song should.
