Having lived through the coverage of the slaughtered Israeli athletes during the 1972 Olympics, I felt like I was experiencing the actual events as they were occurring over again. Speilberg did an excellent …

Sin City
The director took a little bit of Pulp Fiction and combined it with some of the gore of Kill Bill to come up with this highly entertaining film. It is like a dark comic book come to life, shot in black …

Sin City
One of the best movies of 2005, Sin City has action, horror, and spectacular visuals; all you need is a strong stomach and a twisted sense of humor. I've never read the graphic novels, so I won't be doing …

This film was a real treat and something that I wanted to watch for quite some time because I admire Javier Bardem as an actor. No Country for Old Men is a thriller that delivers brilliant levels of suspense, …

Let me start by stating that if you watch Stardust the movie hoping that it achieves the aura of Stardust the book, you will be disappointed. That, however, is the fate of most book into movie productions. …

No Country for Old Men
I am not a "movie connoisseur" so I cannot comment on things like the cinematography of the film. However, speaking strictly about plot line, I can't say that the movie lived up to all the hype. While …

No Country for Old Men
Wow. Great movie. I saw this movie at the Rialto in Raleigh, NC, which is worth a trip in itself as an old school "movie palace". The lobby is about the size of my kitchen at home, just enough room for …

No Country for Old Men
Death pervades this picture, just as it pervades the world of the Coen brothers. As in Fargo, violent death is a specter in every scene. There is a lot of violence here, even for a desensitized and jaded …

Cormac McCarthy's novel NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN has been successfully transformed into a film in the skilled hands of Ethan and Joel Coen. The story is intact, the characters are given the dialog so uniquely …

I have often thought it would be fun to write the plot to a film which was genuinely reflective of how real life unfolds and where no concessions were made to the conventions and impulses of dramatic …
