Kate Selby is a mean, green, story writing machine! She enjoys rock climbing, yoga, volleyball, writing poetry in her psychological "Zen Zone," and running hurdles. Another hobby which Kate enjoys is laughing at herself, an activity which she pursues quite often as she often does things that are funny, if awkward and stupid. Her aspirations are to be happy and wear a shirt twice without getting any stains on it. She is closer to accomplishing her first goal than her second.

Alfie: Fall in love with Law

By Kate Selby | Nov. 12, 2004, midnight | In Print »

For a movie filled with sex, relationships, a star-studded cast, and yes, even a moped, Alfie starts off spectacularly. But as this flick putters along, it becomes less chic, and more "chick."

But for all its poignant potential, this film fails to shape up to the quality of its predecessor.

Havana Nights gets steamy but not too sweet

By Kate Selby | March 8, 2004, midnight | In Print »

Two teenagers hold each other close as they throw themselves about the dance floor under the flashing lights of an old-fashioned projector. As their lips near, the lights are flipped on and the two look in shock at the older brothers of male partner. There are several close calls like this in Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights which remind the audience of its PG-13 rating. Despite the few cheesy lines sprinkled about, the movie transcends the teeny-bopper genre with scenes depicting the Cuban revolution.
