    You mentioned again the High Falls Film Festival and the Hoffmans. You make it sound like the festival is in NYC, but it is in Rochester, NY. There is MUCH MORE to NY than NYC.

    Mike, it hadn’t occured to me that it might sound like that. For those that are interested, here is a link to the High Falls Film Festival in Rochester, New York. Check it out.

    Thank you for the post of the link for the festival. I may just be over sensitive to that issue as most people think I am from NYC when I say I am from NY.

    I forgot to mention this in my last comment. I do ENJOY your podcasts! keep up the work. I am a big movie fan, from back when I was thought wierd for buying laserdiscs of movies to get the bonus features and commentary that people are now accepting on DVDs.

    Thanks again!

    Mike from ‘New York State’,

    With all due respect, why are you sensitive about people assuming you are from NYC when in fact you are not?


    Mike G….casts have been great as usual. I picked up the new Raging Bull and Get Shorty sets .

    I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your program. Reel Reveiws provides in depth reviews that expose the characters and discuss the story in a very interesting and intriquing way. Your knowledge of actors, irectors, producers, and characters is very insightful and refreshing. I enjoy the level of involvement I am able to experience from yor reviews without giving away the story.

    I recently listened to your reveiw of Get Shorty, a movie I truly enjoy and prodded my wife to listen to your review. After some initial resistance she agreed and was instantly hooked. We have rented the movie and can’t wait to see Be Cool.

    Keep up the great work!

    I wasn’t a big fan of this movie when it came out, but I certainly enjoyed what you had to say about it. Thanks!
