"The good lie" is when not telling the truth is for the betterment of others; "the end justifies the means" so to speak.  It's a heartfelt a sentiment especially when you know the reason for the lie is ultimately the best choice even though you know it's wrong.  The Good Lie, a new film from Warner Bros. illustrates th...

Watching Kelly Cooper (Jennifer Garner; Alias) navigate the daily grind of parenthood, I couldn't help but feel like the inspiration for this film (as many a mother/father out there will feel when watching it themselves).  Watching her bike through traffic in a race to reach Dick van Dyke before a (mis)reading of a children's book remi...

I'm always fascinated by what motivates people, especially serial killers, to do the depraved things they do.  Unfortunately for me, "A Walk Among the Tombstones" doesn't delve that deeply into the Psyches of the duo killing and chopping up the women who are loved by drug dealers in NY.  Instead it tells the story of Matt Scudde...

The night the lights went out on…Lincoln Road.  A power outage affected the entire block.  In the theatre, The Expendables 3 continued to play.  Like the proverbial cockroach.  Except for the sound.  The sound had cut out, and the crowd agreed that the film had just improved ten-fold.  Should Stallone be bored e...
