The Good Shepherd

The Good Shepherd

Edward Wilson (Matt Damon) is privileged and destined for a luminous future. A Yale student, he is inducted into the secret society of the Skull and Bones brotherhood. His has allies in important places. Edward's stoic idealism is soon noticed and he is recruited by Army General Bill Sullivan (Rober... [More]

Blood Diamond

Blood Diamond

Ernest Blom, the president of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses, said in a 2006 article I read recently (in an airline magazine on my way to South Africa), that conflict diamonds are now all but "an historical fact." Blom noted that "In 2000, it came to our attention that trade in conflict... [More]

Babel

Babel

I am a huge fan of Alejandro González Iñárritu's previous films, "21 Grams" (2003) and "Amores perros" (2000). Iñárritu is able to bring intensely felt human suffering to the screen. While the onslaught of popular films like "Hostel" and the "Saw" franchise exploit physical suffering in the extreme,... [More]

Notes on a Scandal

Notes on a Scandal

The male-dominated media is astonished when a good-looking, young female teacher – sometimes a gorgeous blond one – has sex with a 14 or 15 year old boy. No one seems to understand why. Not even psychotherapists offer much insight except the short-rope "bad daddy" excuse. I'm going to explain it – i... [More]

For Your Consideration

For Your Consideration

For Your Consideration is the latest improvisational concoction from Christopher Guest and his righteously talented crew (Waiting For Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind), and it couldn't come at a better time. This is, after all, Oscar season. This clever poke at that all consuming entity know... [More]

The Fountain

The Fountain

The Fountain is an exuberant, passionate, thirty-five million dollar art film made with visual bravado by an extremely talented film maker. This movie is, all at once, poetic, breathtaking, heartbreaking, and frustrating. Simply put, it's the kind of film that won't play to the masses, but I found i... [More]

Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny

Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny

Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny is the long awaited cinematic love letter to fans of the D. For those not in the know, Tenacious D is the musical/comedy brain child of Jack Black and Kyle Gass. Formed in the mid 90's and appearing on the grossly underrated Mr. Show as well as their own HBO series... [More]

Casino Royale

Casino Royale

It's been four years since the last 007 installment and things have certainly changed a great deal since then. Ian Flemming's creation has been given a major overhaul, and the results are (if you'll forgive me) Smashing! As I'm sure you know the franchise has been given a fresh new face in the perso...

Night of the Living Dead 3D

Night of the Living Dead 3D

Night of the Living Dead 3-D opens just in time for...Thanksgiving? What the hell! Why didn't this open Halloween weekend? It hardly matters. Even if it would have opened Halloween weekend, it still wouldn't have made any money. This is actually the second remake of the George A. Romero classic... [More]

Stranger Than Fiction

Stranger Than Fiction

Stranger Than Fiction is a wonderful, whimsical, surprisingly romantic tale that delves into the mind of a novelist and the soul of her latest book's main character. There are many things to admire about this charming movie, but perhaps the biggest surprise surrounding it is the involvement of a per... [More]

The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause

The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause

In this second sequel to Tim Allen's holiday blockbuster from 1994, Santa (Tim Allen) goes toe to toe with a jealous Jack Frost (Martin Short). It seems Frost is dismayed because he has yet to receive his own holiday, so with a heart full of deceipt and contempt, he plots to steal Santa's job by mea... [More]

The Devil and Daniel Johnston

The Devil and Daniel Johnston

I mentioned to Adam that I'd watched The Devil and Daniel Johnston and he asked me if it was as good as New York Doll, and I honestly couldn't believe he'd asked that. New York Doll is far more than just a documentary, it's literally the chronicling of a Miracle and proof of God's existence, it's ve... [More]

Keeping Mum

Keeping Mum

Keeping Mum is a fun little film, with spot on performances by Maggie Smith, Rowan Atkinson and Kristen Scott Thomas and well why not . . . Patrick Swayze. The quaint charm and tongue-in-cheek foul play might have been a really effective film if not for clumsy direction and heavy-handed screenwritin... [More]

Running With Scissors

Running With Scissors

It almost invariably turns out badly when one of your favorite books gets turned into a movie. For example one of my favorite books of all time The Shipping News got the full treatment, Kevin Spacey, Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore and it was the most dreadful experiences I've ever had in a theater....

The Fountain

The Fountain

A friend's father died in a hit-and-run accident as he went to pick up a newspaper while his family waited for him to return to celebrate his 80th birthday. The candles were lit. As far as I am concerned, how auspicious! To die on your birthday is to complete a perfect circle! I'm sure this guarante... [More]
