What's the film about?   Its hard to say what this film is about.  Its a war movie, its a romantic movie, its a period drama.  Yet its none of these and at the same time all of …

House on Haunted Hill (1959)
**** out of ****     I had no idea that the concepts of Camp had originated from so far back in cinematic time, but "House on Haunted Hill" proves, furthermore, that such things existed …

Scream 2
*** out of ****     "Scream 2" is all whimsy, all wit, and all entertainment. I don't find it quite as funny, scary, or unforgettable as the film that it is a follow-up to, but it …

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

**** out of ****     I believe that "Lawrence of Arabia"; like "Citizen Kane", "The Godfather", and "Psycho", is a film that you never quite see the first time. Most people will be …

(500) Days of Summer
Don't be fooled by the opening narration. (500) Days of Summer is very much a love story. Just not the kind we're used to seeing.      Come to think of it, the title's …

Iron Man 2
Plenty of action. Plenty of drama, partying, flirting. But it lacked the heart of the first film (pardon the pun) and felt more choppy and predictable. There was one very satisfying relational moment, …

Dead Letter Office
I'm sure I had this idea once - a story fragment that flickered across my brain about the letters that fall between the cracks, the ones that never reach their destination. I'm glad I didn't …

I have never seen quite anything like it. When Woody Allen's 1983 film "Zelig" was released it was dubbed a "mockumentary". "Zelig" stars Woody Allen as a curious little …

Okay, first of all, I'd like to say that when I watched this, I didn't have high expectations for it and even with that mindset, I still felt quite cheated when Avatar was over. What really amazes …

Poster of the film.
Carpenter's second feature is a lean, urban reworking of Hawks' Rio Bravo. The B-movie maestro has always produced impressive results on shoestring budgets, but this $100K production delivers …
