Derailed [2005] Movie Review Recommendation

Derailed [2005]

Right from the start of this movie you could feel that it's based on a novel, a great novel. This is the difference between rushed milking commercial blunders and successful adaptations like this one where...
Man on a Ledge [2012] Movie Review Recommendation

Man on a Ledge [2012]

Gotta hand it to the creators of the title for this movie about a man on a ledge, and it's called Man on a Ledge, creative... What seemed to be another mediocre negotiation cop thriller turned to all that plus...
Carjacked [2011] Movie Review Recommendation

Carjacked [2011]

Hard Rain [1998] Movie Review Recommendation

Hard Rain [1998]

What a lame title for such a surprisingly original and interesting movie. I mean, come on, hard rain is the first thing that they thought of (actually second), but enough about the title and lets talk about...
Contraband [2012] Movie Review Recommendation

Contraband [2012]

Contraband is a strange thriller, but not strange because of the story or anything, but because of the general vibe around the movie was really lame and it surprisingly turned out to be quite good. I would go...
The Devil's Advocate [1997] Movie Review Recommendation

The Devil’s Advocate [1997]

Although the title of the movie pretty much reveals the story of this masterpiece, I must say that this approach to the subject is much more frightening than visually stunning (not to say that this one isn't...
Seeking Justice [2011] Movie Review Recommendation

Seeking Justice [2011]

Seeking Justice is a new Nicolas Cage movie, that he seems to be spewing out like a mad man. Strangely enough, this one is not so bad at all, although there are some strange things present. For example: the...
Swordfish [2001] Movie Review Recommendation

Swordfish [2001]

In the light of the recent hacker attacks, and all the fuss about megaupload, Swordfish comes as a logical choice for viewing. Right from the beginning, with one of the most awesome explosions ever created,...
Tropa de Elite AKA Elite Squad [2007] Movie Review Recommendation

Tropa de Elite AKA Elite Squad [2007]

Tropa de Elite is one of the most powerful movies about urban violence that you will ever see. It is that good. Based on a book by a sociologist and two former members of BOPA,  Special Police Operations...
Wild Things [1998] Movie Review Recommendation

Wild Things [1998]

Wild Things can be classified as one of those guilty pleasure movies that we check out from time to time. Teeming with sexuality and suspense, it also has a decent story and excellent acting. All the lead...
The Town [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

The Town [2010]

The normal course of action with this movie is to go on a rant about how Ben Affleck is a great director and yadda yadda yadda, but I'm not gonna do that. We'll just see about that. Instead I'm gonna...
Frantic [1988] Movie Review Recommendation

Frantic [1988]

Although the title says Frantic, this movie is hardly that. But, don't get me wrong, it isn't frantic in a good way. Directed by Roman Polanski and starring Harrison Ford and Emmanuelle Seigner (his later...
The Double [2011] Movie Review Recommendation

The Double [2011]

Unfortunately, as their career keeps deteriorating, aging actors, once popular and great are forced to take dumber and dumber roles. We have seen this with the number of Hollywood actors, and Richard Gere is...
Man on Fire [2004] Movie Review Recommendation

Man on Fire [2004]

Based on a novel by A.J. Quinnell and directed by Tony Scott (Top Gun, Enemy of the State, Crimson Tide) Man on Fire is an almost perfect movie. This is a second attempt at the Quinnells novel, the first...
The Ledge [2011] Movie Review Recommendation

The Ledge [2011]

Hmmm is it possible to make a good and objective movie about religion with two sides that won't budge and know-it-alls (or not-know-it-alls) who claim that their response is: I don't know? Working with two...
