The best way to go view the latest adaption of True Grit is as its own entity. There was the first movie with the legendary John Wayne and now there is the 21st century version with Jeff Bridges. Both versions are good representations of the book by Charles Portis. Though neither can deliver the true sense of revenge that the book delivers, but wha... Read More

Gamers and action junkies will have a treat in store with the release of Tron: Legacy a computer game plot with spunk.  The fast paced adventure may be a sequel, but plays well to first timers.  If there is a downside to the film, it's that adults 35+ will probably not like or even understand the storyline.  But, if your ilk is getti...

Lets get things straight first...if you are going into the Tourist thinking it is going to be a wild ride like a Jason Bourne film, then you will be sorely disappointed.   The Tourist, directed and written by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, tells the story of Frank Taylor (Johnny Depp), an American tourist, who crosses paths with a stranger ...

There are a lot of good Kung-Fu movies out there and there are a lot of bad Kung-Fu movies out there. The Warrior's Way is one of those movies that could fall somewhere in the middle of those ranges depending on your point of view.The movie opens with the Yang, played by Dong-gun Jang, who is a legendary assassin/swordsman working for an obviou...

When going to see a movie you have certain expectations. If a film is billed as a comedy than you expect to have a laugh filled experience. The same can be said for the other genres as well. Sometimes there are movies that try to break the mold they are cast in; Love & Other Drugs is just such a movie.Jake Gyllenhaal plays Jamie Randall who wor... Read More

Faster is a classic revenge tale combined with the simplicity of the grindhouse movies of the 70's. After a steady career in wrestling Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson moved on from that arena to pursue a life of acting. Surprisingly he actually has solid comedic timing which can be seen from his appearances on Saturday Night Live. Naturally bec... Read More

Russell Crowe has certainly been a name to draw in movie-goers. With films like Gladiator and 3:10 to Yuma under his belt we know that he has the acting chops to keep us locked in our seats. Paul Haggis has certainly become a name in the industry, writing such movies as Crash and Million Dollar Baby. Naturally when you find out that these two indiv... Read More

Rachel McAdams first caught my attention with her performance in the films, Mean Girls, and Red Eye. She shows so much heart in her performances, and that quality continues to shine through in her latest film, "Morning Glory".However, Rachel McAdams, who plays Becky Fuller, isn't alone in creating a fun, lighthearted film. The cast also i... Read More

Animation is an excellent tool for bringing our greatest fantasies to life. In that world our characters can truly defy gravity, face outrageous villains, or go to places unimaginable. This is the case with the movie Megamind. It is the latest venture in the animation world using the age-old hero vs. villain storyline. Will Ferrell and Brad Pi... Read More
