The Visitor

April 25th, 2008

The Visitor is written and directed by Thomas McCarthy who ironically also has a bit part in Baby Mama. With wry wit he shuffles the largely unknown cast through this heart warming story. Richard Jenkins of Six Feet Under snags a plum role here for a mature actor as Walter Vale, a detached Connecticut professor reluctantly sent to New York to deliver a paper he’s co-authored at a globalizat ...

On the plane Kumar’s smokeless bong is mistaken for a different type of incend ...

Ben X

Ben X is the online moniker of a Belgian teen who is a master at playing “Archlord” over the internet where he most often teams up with the also anonymous Scarlite. In the game he is strong, powerful – everything that he is not in real life. Ben is autistic yet does very well in school where he is bullied unmercifully and is helpless to stop the persecution.

88 minutes

April 18th, 2008

88 Minutes actually runs for 108 minutes and the believability goes downhill from there. Al Pacino stars as Dr Jack Gramm a forensic psychiatrist with the FBI who also teaches at the University of Washington (played by UBC). He lives a lavish lifestyle that appears beyond that of any cop or college professor for that matter and even though acting only as an advisor for the Bureau seems to h ...
