Tough cop, cagy police chief, bad mayor the film Broken City comes to theaters this weekend telling a wicked tale of graft and corruption in New York City.  The well acted and interesting story gives a good show, but gets quite predictable and familiar. If you like raw crime thrillers with a political backdrop, Broken City has both. The m... Read More

Winner of six Oscars including the coveted Best Picture Mrs. Miniver topped the box-office in 1942 with a war story that inspires. If you love the classics that have survived over the years, than this film, now on Blu-ray, should be in your home library.  The film's a great change from today's storytelling with acting that has hardly been equa...

In the first movie, Liam Neeson's character Bryan, is called into action after his daughter is kidnapped by a human trafficking ring while in France.  This movie starts exactly where the other one ended, with the father of the kidnappers from the first movie vowing revenge over his son's fresh grave.  Apparently revenge means kidn...

(Chris Rebholz)  01/14/2013 8:22 AM EST
As Hollywood anoints Jennifer Lawrence as the Next Big Thing, there's some unfinished business to tend to before she bathes in her "Hunger Games" franchise success or tastes Oscar glory with the praise for "Silver Linings Playbook," and its name is "House at the End of the Street." Shot before her stint as Katniss in &... Read More

(John Delia)  01/10/2013 10:22 AM EST
Los Angeles relives it's gritty past in this fictional account of a real mob boss in Gangster Squad.  The violent crime film has an exceptional A-list cast with creative sets, period costumes and props that resemble the era, but the lifeless storyline just doesn't do it for me. The script with its over indulgence in Tommy gun fire, explosions,... Read More
