Imagine, if you will, that you just woke up in a hospital with no recollection of how you ended up there?  Furthermore, you are not in your native country, your wife doesn't recognize you, and no one believes you are you.  This is the scenario that Dr. Martin Harris (Liam Neeson from Taken, and Batman Begins) is presented with in the ...

The western is a staple of the movie history going back all the way to the first days of cinema. There have been many tales told through the setting of the western, some true, some fictional and while they have all been different takes on that period of American history, they tend to ignore the obvious fact of that time, many of the so-called cowbo...

The idea of marriage is always a funny topic to discuss especially through the medium of film. That is the subject behind Hall Pass, the latest film from the directing team of the Farrelly brothers.

While it has been highly entertaining to watch many of our favorite comic heroes come to life on the big screen these past few years, it is with animation that these characters will always have their truest life.

Adult novels are a hot commodity in Hollywood these days, so it is no surprise that the latest hot title for children, I Am Number Four, by Pittacus Lore, is the latest novel to make its way to the big screen.   The story is quite simple and takes it cues from a show on the CW network, John Smith (Alex Pettyfer) is a teenager from another plan...

No one movie can capture the horror of war but there are some that have come close and Platoon is one of them. Directed by Oliver Stone, a Vietnam vet himself, the movie portrays the harsh realities of combat through the eyes of a young college dropout.   Charlie Sheen stars as Chris Taylor a young naïve college student who quits school a...

Every horror movie that comes along boasts that this film will be the scariest movie you have ever seen; sometimes even making comparisons to classic films like The Exorcist, American Werewolf in London, or The Ring.
