I've missed the unique street gangster films Director Guy Ritchie makes. He has a style of creating this type of film that just stands as a category all its own. Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) and Snatch (2000) are my two favorites. So I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of "Wrath Of Man" right after I heard he was makin... Read More

This film is like turning over a rock, you never know what's underneath until it's seen. That's the great joy in this film; only you can probably guess what's coming from the first scene when a battered Bob Odenkirk is sitting in an interrogation room feeding a stray cat. It's a beautifully constructed sequence that leaves the possibilities wide op... Read More

Let's get this out of the way right from the beginning; I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It's fun, as only Eddie Murphy can deliver it, it's nostalgic, conjuring up the magic the first film brought to us back in the late '80s, and it sticks to its original themes of love, family, and tradition. It's still the acceptable Cinderella story for our mode... Read More

When I was a kid, about the same age as the character Miguel in this film, my folks gave me a present. It was a box full of numbered little bottles of paint and a canvas outline of a horse in a corral divided up into small sections with numbers corresponding to the paint bottles. It was called "Paint By Numbers" and it was very popular at... Read More

They say, "Revenge is a dish best served up cold". If that's the truth, then this film is a most delicious meal. It's quite a raw film at almost every visual and verbal turn and you may want to turn it off somewhere in the beginning, but please don't; ride out any prejudices you may have and I promise you a film experience unl...

Once upon a time…Hollywood cranked out one Western Film after another. Audiences loved them; they couldn't get enough rough riding, bad guys, good guys, crooked sheriffs, gunfights, lone heroes, and cliffhanging rescues. They made cowboys the biggest movie stars. Then tastes changed and the western all but faded away, morphing into what are ... Read More

Just when you think every interesting story about WWII has been told and retold, along comes another, and this one as compelling as any that came before. "The Last Vermeer", is a tale of mystery, of Art Fraud, and the weeding out of Nazi collaboration at the end of the war. It's also a gripping courtroom drama with twist after twist and a...

What do you need to spin a yarn about teenagers in danger, that twists the usual Slasher/Comedy film in some unique way, yet stays true to the original genre?Simple. First, you borrow every cliché in every film of its type that came before it and blends it into a slickly shot, gory, playtime piece that your projected audience is both used to... Read More

Jon Stewart, the genius behind 16 years of the best version of Comedy Central's "Daily Show" may have taken his leave from television, but he hasn't left the spotlight for a minute. Recently, after nine years of lobbying, he showed up at a congressional hearing fighting for health benefits for the First Responders of 911. Then, he showed ... Read More

It seems that there have been a few really enjoyable horror films around these days. You know the ones, they keep you guessing and at one or two points you get that scare that lifts you out of your chair and makes your heart beat faster. True horror aficionados live for these exquisite ‘Levitation Scenes' and will stay through some pretty... Read More
