Thriller

Jake Gyllenhaal, from the moment he is on screen, is fantastically riveting. I won't say he is unrecognizable in his role as Lou Bloom, a conscience-free opportunist with a shocking lack of moral comp…
Out of all of the women characters in Sin City, I perhaps related to Jessica Alba's Nancy Callahan the most. Maybe it is because I'm not an assassin hooker. Or a psychiatrist who answers the door wear…
Pacino plays Will Dormer (the name a clever play on the French verb "to sleep"), a veteran cop from LA, who is called to a case in Alaska, the land of the midnight sun, as a favor to a friend in a sma…
We've all had moments when our families have disappointed us so much that we can't believe they're ours.  It would be nice to disown them, or run away, or cry and swear and kick something, but for the…
I saw the first half of The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane when I was in junior high. I found it while flipping channels after SNL, and was immediately intrigued by this spooky tale. What's up wi…

I remember seeing the trailer for The Town when it was coming to theaters. A bunch of masked Boston-Irish bank robbers hold up a bank and take the bank manager hostage. They kidnap her on the getaway …
The pedigree, on screen, is there: Ridley Scott directing, filling his film with a cast of heavyweights like Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, and Cameron Diaz. Then add Pul…
