Hello everyone, and welcome to 111 Archer Avenue. What started as a film review blog has become my online judgment forum. I will review the occasional movie or DVD, post an interesting trailer, critique a newly-read book, talk about sports, and share my thoughts and opinions on random issues. You can also follow me on Twitter (@OlieCoen) or check out my work on DVDTalk.com. Thank you and enjoy!

Movie Trailer - Midnight's Children

Director: Deepa Mehta
Starring: Satya Bhabha, Shahana Goswami, Rajat Kapoor
Release: May, 2013

This film is based on the acclaimed novel by Salman Rushdie.  And he wrote the screenplay and narrates, so it should be a great representation of the book.  I saw him on The Daily Show, and he was really interesting.  However ...I just don't care about India.  I know it's awful, but I just don't care.  That's a history that I've never studied and am not that curious about.  I'm seen Gandhi, I know the basics, and I guess I'm not excited to know more.  Call me ethnocentric, but my focus is usually on European history and not Asian.  So, if you read the book then you should see the movie.  But I doubt I will.
