The INFAMOUS COLFAX Ave

Colfax Avenue, the most infamous street in Colorado, and perhaps in the U.S, is synonymous with Denver. This famous road, once dubbed by Hugh Hefner in the 70's to be the "Longest, Wickedest Street in America," in my opinion still lives up to that title. Colfax Avenue has it all; from the rich, to the poor, and everything in between. Whatever you want in the entire world can be found on these 26.1 miles of road.

Plaza Voices: It's a Small World After All

Still from video of "let it Go" in 25 languages

Did you know there are about 6,500 languages spoken in the world today? The new movie Frozen has been translated into 41 of these languages, and this amazing video shows singers performing the hit "Let it Go" in 25 of them.

The best unknown actor in the world!

His name is Choi Min‑sik and hands down he has to be the best unknown actor in the world!

In South Korea, Choi Min‑sik is one of the top dogs in the film industry. But, when It comes to the United States, Europe, etc., his name is never even mentioned. What a shame! Choi Min‑sik has what we Americans like to call the "IT" factor.

He can play any role and make it legit; the raw emotions he brings are second to none and he can easily compete with the best of them.

Movies that are just plain BRUTAL

Movies that are just plain BRUTAL

Your emotions and sanity will be tested. You've been warned...

You will get scared, cringe, and become fearful and sad. How much can you really take is totally up to you. You can easily turn off the DVD or Blu-ray player, but I can guarantee you that these 2 films will never leave your mind.

Oh, did that pass the Bechdel Test?

Miss Congeniality

While putting together a quick DVD display at the Ross-Broadway Library Branch this morning, I started thinking about the Bechdel Test. In case you have never heard of it, it's a simple test developed by a cartoonist in the eighties about women in film.

To pass the test a movie must have three things:

Godzilla!!!

The king of the monsters is back! Mayhem, destruction and giant monsters! O how is missed you... and check out the mash up of Godzilla footage and classic Blue Öyster Cult "Godzilla" at the bottom of the page.

Whether you're familiar with Godzilla movies or not, these films always have the same plot: Tons of dialog, several very bizarre characters, and Godzilla can be either the good guy or the bad guy. But, what makes these films so good are the epic battles, giant monsters, and extensive destruction.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is back!

oh my gosh he's back!

I’m not sure about you, but I miss seeing Neil deGrasse Tyson on NOVA. Good news! He revamped Carl Sagan’s Cosmos and it is airing on Fox (KDVR 31) starting this Sunday at 8. It’s been a great year and a half for science documentaries and books, so if you need more geek in your week, here’s a list:

Some of my current favorite documentaries:

The World's Bravest Little Girl

Hushpuppy is her name and she is the definition of bravery! 

She has the biggest heart and is the bravest of the brave! Hushpuppy is a girl who can change the world and is a child who can show you how beautiful life is. Beasts of the Southern Wild tells the tale of struggle, pain, loss, perseverance, and bravery.
