Joe Wilson's War or: Much Ado About Aluminum Tubes

I love political thrillers. Well in this case, “thriller” is being a bit generous, it’s more of a drama, the numerous shots of Sean Penn and Naomi Watts watching news clips in airports isn’t exactly edge of your seat action and suspense. Not to sell this film short, Valeria Plame is quite the femme fatale. [...]

Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps

Audiences and critics are split over Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps. Detractors complain that it was a missed opportunity, or too complicated and lacking direction. One reviewer lamented that the old Gordon Gekko would have torn up this movie, and that this film would have doesn’t capture the zeitgeist the way the original did, [...]

The Ghost Writer Review

The Ghost Writer is based on the polemic by Robert Harris, is true to the source material but not restricted by it. The film is full of suspense and is still enjoyable for fans of the book.

The Wolfman Review

A bloodbath in Victorian England; “The Wolfman” is more stomach-turning than bone-chilling.
