Tropical Heat: Canada's Sweating Bullets

Image
In Tropical Heat (aka Sweating Bullets) Nick Slaughter (Rob Stewart), is an ex-cop and DEA agent, who drops out of society after being fired from his job. He relocates to the fictional Florida town of Key Mariah to start a detective service with a scrappy travel agent, the beautiful Sylvie Girard (Carolyn Dunn).  It's a recipe for thrills, exotic locales, and lots of action. So it should be no surprise this series aired on CBS the home of other like-minded classics including Magnum P.I.. In fact it was part of CBS' umbrella series of content "Crimetime After Primetime." This is where it gets fun so pay attention. Known as Sweating Bullets in the United States, it was a Canadian production in partnership with Mexico and Israel. Season one was shot in Puerto Vallarta, then season two in Eilat, Israel. Season three was shot in Pretoria, South Africa and Mauritius. Nick Slaughter portrayed in Serbian comic "Strip protest", by Aleksa Gajić, as a student protest

This Pride Month we've gone through TheArchive to curate a streaming playlist of LGBTQ content that should take you through June and beyond. Two men with AIDS develop a close friendship while roommates at a residence for people living with the disease. One man is a heterosexual ex-con, and the other is a homosexual educated professional. Roommates stars  Elizabeth Peña,  Randy Quaid and Eric Stoltz. In  Alto , Francesca “Frankie” Del Vecchio (Diana DeGarmo) is adamant about many things in life. Headstrong and passionate, she loves her family, her band, and her fiancé; but disagrees with all of them about one thing: "Mob Hit" a TV show symbolizes the fetishizing of Mafia culture that to Frankie obscures all the more important aspects of the Italian American culture she longs to feed her soul.  But Frankie’s abhorrence of–and her sister Heather’s attraction to–Mob culture remain symbolic, that is until Frankie opens the trunk of a rental car and finds her world turned up

Can David Mamet "Pass Over" a New York Times Film Review?

This post was originally published on (3/24/21) and updated on (4/14/22) . No doubt, even as new variants on the rise with names longer and more numerically elaborate than their chemical makeup pervade our newfound freedom, the spring exodus is in full swing. This weekend, make time after dinner for a holiday movie. In fact, as Passover movies go, When Do We Eat? is definitely a memorable one that may also rub some people the wrong way. With the tagline, “My big fat Jewish Seder” the viewer has a sense of what’s on the table. And it’s hard to dispute Jmerica.com whose review of the movie exalts it as, “History’s most hilarious Passover comedy.” That is only if Shalom Sesame: It's Passover, Grover! Is not as funny as it potentially sounds. That being said, Salvador Litvak's  When Do We Eat?  is well worth the watch if only to get a better sense of the “mishegas” (Yiddish for crazy) that can transpire when family gets together to celebrate the holidays; in this particular case,
