The Lincoln Lawyer [2011] Movie Review Recommendation

The Lincoln Lawyer [2011]

When I saw the poster for this movie with Mr. Matthew McConaughey in a lead role I figured that it will be another random boring flick, but seeing it's based on a book, I decided to check it out. And it was a...
Criminal [2004] Movie Review Recommendation

Criminal [2004]

Here's another movie for all you texas holdem, gambling, cheating sons of bitches. It is interesting to see John C. Reilly in another conman movie (the first one was Hard Eight), he seems to be doing rather...
Unknown [2011] Movie Review Recommendation

Unknown [2011]

After Taken, Liam Neeson continues to kick ass in Europe in this movie. Although it's not connected with his previous movie, it has almost the same vibe and a bit similar story. Again the budget was pretty big...
True Grit [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

True Grit [2010]

The latest Coen brothers movie is finally here (the next one is Gambit in 2012), and I have to say that you need to be a bit warned before checking it out. True Grit is a movie based on a book by Charles...
Limitless [2011] Movie Review Recommendation

Limitless [2011]

This was quite a blockbuster and since it involved drug use to achieve higher states of consciousness, I had to check it out. It's based on a novel by Alan Glynn, directed by Neil Burger (also starring Bradley...
Kill the Irishman [2011] Movie Review Recommendation

Kill the Irishman [2011]

Based on an exciting life of Danny Greene, this movie is something that I liked very much. Director was Jonathan Hensleigh, who was involved in many great action and thriller movies, and it came as no surprise...
The Resident [2011] Movie Review Recommendation

The Resident [2011]

Well, here is a movie that's a good example of where the movie industry is heading these days. Into a bleak and pretty predictable world of clichés that does not have much to offer to the viewer. They could...
Inhale [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

Inhale [2010]

This movie turned out surprisingly good compared to the premise that it's based on. I mean, come on, they had three tag lines and they managed to make an interesting thriller out of them (dying child,...
13 [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

13 [2010]

When you see Jason Statham and Mickey Rourke in a same movie you pretty much know what you are in for... I expected more from this movie but still it was pretty watchable considering the fact that it was...
P2 [2007] Movie Review Recommendation

P2 [2007]

Here is another Alexandre Aja (Haute tension, The Hills Have Eyes, Mirrors) movie. It's not scary as the rest of them, nor better, but it's a decent little thriller with some brutal scenes  (actually two)....
Blood Simple. [1984] Movie Review Recommendation

Blood Simple. [1984]

If you like Coen brothers movies, maybe it is time to check out this flick, their directorial debut. Also the first major film of cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld, who later became a noted director (Men in...
We Own the Night [2007] Movie Review Recommendation

We Own the Night [2007]

Although this movie may seem to be something that is going to be remembered, I don't think it will happen. Sure, some 20-30 years from now, you will be able to find and watch it, but that will be the case with...
Unfaithful [2002] Movie Review Recommendation

Unfaithful [2002]

This is a remake of Claude Chabrols La Femme Infidèle (leave it to French to make a movie about sex, love and everything in between), and this theme can also be seen in newer movies like The Other Man. It is...
Nightwatch [1997] Movie Review Recommendation

Nightwatch [1997]

This is a remake of the original Danish thriller Nattevagten, and it's not too shabby. The cast is pretty good, especially Nick Nolte and Ewan McGregor, but you can also see young Josh Brolin showing off...
The Runner [1999] Movie Review Recommendation

The Runner [1999]

This movie is something that you would usually see on the cable TV in some sleazy motel, but it deserves much better screening places than that (what's wrong with sleazy motels?). It manages to be very amusing...
