I figured that if I wanted to write an interesting film blog, I would need an angle. I sat down and thought what sort of odd or quirky thing would interest me and hopefully interest other people.
The idea that I came up with after several days of thinking was to take a single actor/actress and write a review for each film in their career. Now, obviously that would be difficult if I chose someone like Christopher Lee who has been in more films than I have had hot dinners (at least cooked by myself). So I decided to choose someone randomly from any films I watched over the past few days.
The winner is:
The film that I was watching that decided this was Mindhunters . An enjoyable diversion (but more on that in the review blog) from one of my favourite directors Renny Harlin.
Patricia Velásquez (I’m going to call her Patricia from now on, not because I know her but because it takes me a minute or so to get the little acute to appear) is a Venezuelan actress and model. During the 90s Patricia dated Sandra Bernhard. She is, however, bisexual. This is not really anything to do with her films but it makes me wonder if someone who looks like Sandra Bernhard can get an international model then there is hope for me.
Some will recognise Patricia as the soap opera star that Gob and Michael fight over in the wonderfully funny Arrested Development. That won’t be on my list of things to review here as if I allowed TV into my review list I would have to watch CSI: Miami, and that is not going to happen. More are likely to remember her as Anck-su-namun in The Mummy  and The Mummy Returns . These will definitely be reviewed.
The complete list of films starring Patricia are below. I will endeavor to review them all and update them with relevant links.
- Le Jaguar 
- Eruption 
- Beowulf 
- No Vacancy 
- The Mummy 
- Committed 
- Façade 
- San Bernardo 
- Turn It Up  (cameo)
- The Mummy Returns 
- Fidel [2002, miniseries]
- Mindhunters 
- Zapata: The Dream of a Hero - El sueño del héroe 
- The Twelve Days of Christmas Eve 
So, I intend to start by reviewing Mindhunters in the coming few days. The other films are either winging their way to me or will be soon. Let’s hope they hold my interest.
p.s. If you have any ideas about anyone who might make a suitable second ‘project’, let me know.
