kiss kiss bang bang | movie review

March 28, 2012


Not since Shane Black gave us Lethal Weapon has there been a comedy, thriller, action, buddy cop movie that I’ve enjoyed so much. Robert Downey Jr plays Harry Lockhart, a petty thief who inadvertently finds himself being cast in an acting role and is carted off to shadow Val Kilmer’s cop, ‘Gay Perry’. Soon Harry […]

machine gun preacher | movie review

March 23, 2012


Let me start by stating what director Marc Forster [Monster’s Ball, The Kite Runner] gives us with Machine Gun Preacher.

the sunset limited | movie review

March 2, 2012


Cormac McCarthy’s books make for great movies. No Country for Old Men and The Road both making bold statements about the human condition. For me, The Sunset Limited is better than both of those – and possibly one of the best performances by two of the movie industries greatest actors. Cormac adapted The Sunset Limited […]
