During the 1980's and1990's, there were two names synonymous with action -- Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. However, the 21st century arrived, and a new action start needed to fill the shoes left by these two action giants. For a few years, it was a bit of a toss up; but the winner has clearly been names, Jason Statham. &... Read More

The talk of recession has been topic of discussion for a few years now. After a lot of the larger corporate companies started downsizing there was a general fear among people that many Americans were going to end up jobless. Only very recently has the job market started to take something of a turn for the better, so a movie like The Company Men com... Read More

There are always a few movies that come out and make you wonder, "How did this get made?"

Mark Wahlberg has a tendency to be type cast as the guy "from the streets" and while he has often expressed some displeasure with the kind of films offered to him there is certainly no way you can deny how well he does in these roles. His newest venture is called The Fighter, about the early years of Irish Mickey Ward and his brother, Dic... Read More

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

(John Delia)  12/19/2010 9:32 PM EDT
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 ...
