There are a lot of good Kung-Fu movies out there and there are a lot of bad Kung-Fu movies out there.

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

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
