American Made

The filmmakers of American Made seemingly take some narrative license with their biographical version of the infamous Barry Seal, a career criminal drug smuggler, played gleefully by Tom Cruise. Upon leaving his commercial job as a TWA pilot, Seal was, indeed, in the employ of Pablo Escobar—the [...]

Abduction

This movie is a fast-paced explosive and action-packed film, with suspense layered on top of it. It doesn't make the "family-friendly" grade as it contains scenes of strong violence and profanity. No doubt its star, Taylor Lautner, will make a bigger name for himself than he already has. The story [...]

The Roommate

Sara Matthews (Minka Kelly) believes her new roommate at college, named Rebecca (Leighton Meester), is just over protective. Rebecca gets upset with Sara if she stays out late or away from their dorm room without calling to let her know. She also becomes jealous of Sara's other friends and her new [...]

The Strangers

This film starts off as a bit of a dozer but once it kicks into gear the mystery of who the masked prowlers are, and Liv Tyler's effective acting, makes for a fairly good mystery. Tyler is quite good as young Kristen McKay, and she acts out cold, naked fear quite convincingly, with true-to-life [...]

As usual with these types of movies the acting, dialog, and character development all [...]

Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves have a great on-screen chemistry which makes their [...]

I really enjoy watching Sandra Bullock on the screen no matter what kind of film she is in. Even though her character in "The Lake House" is morose and seemingly totally unhappy, I still enjoyed her performance. I have never seen a film directed by Alejandro Agresti and I think I will see more by [...]
