Lass is More with Josh Lasser

Focusing on the media, "Lass is More" sits down with the individuals who make the movies and shows that people are, or will be, talking about. The things we watch are not created in a vacuum, but rather as responses to far larger thoughts and issues. From why someone took a role to what it means to them to where they’re going next, we put the pieces of the puzzle together. The "Lass is More" podcast gets to the core of the issue, offering perspective on both the people involved in a project, and the project itself.

Directors Ellen Fiske and Ellinor Hallin have spent years putting together the documentary, "Scheme Birds."  The piece is showing this year at the Tribeca Film Festival and follows a young woman, Gemma, who is growing up in a housing project in Scotland.  

What does it take to spend years on such a project not knowing the outcome?  Why follow this particular woman?  What's next?  The directors clue us in.

We were trepidatious about buying a car with a Blu-ray player, our kids already have enough devices on car trips, but last week a road trip using the Blu-ray player reminded us just how wonderful an experience movies can be when shared.  We watched our child watch "The Kid who Would be King," and saw the beauty of emotions playing across his face.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are both funny men.  They are funny together and they are funny separately.  Spoofs can be very funny.  Sherlock Holmes is a character ready to be spoofed (and he has been spoofed before).

That said, these two funny men with what could be a very funny idea for a movie end up delivering something... less than funny in "Holmes & Watson."
