Revolutionary Road

Sam Mendes’ latest is his darkest film yet, but it really gets you to think about ones own life as you can easily see both sides of the argument laid out by the terrific performances by Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio. April and Frank hit it off right from the start at a party. Frank […]

The Reader

The acting in the film is also top-notch from head to toe with a couple of actors bravely bearing it all, literally, repeatedly. Playing a younger Michael, as the film is told through flashback, is David Kross and he captures the innocence of Michael easily as he traverses through sexual exploration with Hannah who starts […]

Ron Howards latest is a nice little film about history that does a fine job of humanizing Nixon while still holding him accountable, and is full of a number good performances. Richard M. Nixon (Frank Langella) is the only president to ever resign from office, and in doing so a nation was cheated and robbed […]

The Spirit

The acting in the film is also solid all around and everyone does a good job of playing in on the fun. Scarlett Johansson just hits something right for me on this one as The Octopuses right hand woman. She nails the joke and silliness of the role and she just works. Sam Jackson made […]

Amy Adams is sweet and innocent as Sister James, and her eyes perfectly added to her naive character as she gets lost in them on as to what she should believe. Her arc in the classroom is also very good and her final scenes with her students is telling as to the effect of her […]

horror mechanics to get under your skin. I am usually not a fan of horror films, but this is the kind of stuff that proves how great the genre can be when done right. And the ending, oh the ending, perfect. Alfredson has made himself one to watch with this picture.The work by the actors […]

The cast in this film is grand and filled with quality from top to bottom. At the top is Tom Cruise, who between Tropic Thunder and this has had another solid year, and he continues to show us why he is one of the best actors of his generation. His command and presence in this […]

Yes Man

The actors in the film also are pretty solid all around, with a few standouts among the crowd. Zooey Deschanel is absolutely adorable and one of the best girl friends in a movie I have seen in a while. Her charm and humor is just fantastic and throw in the musical number and I am […]

Teeth

Through these experiences, Dawn learns that her sexuality is hers to share, and not to be abused by anyone. The films message in fact is quite good for woman, in that no one should let anyone take advantage of them, while also finding a mans true intentions as they can be deceiving. And with that […]
