Pride and Glory

October 24th, 2008
Pride and Glory is a generational cop film that degenerates quickly. It does feature fine performances from the top down – the top being the family patriarch Francis Tierney (John Voight) a career cop whose two sons Francis Jr (Noah Emmerich) and Ray (Edward Norton) also serve as two of New York’s finest. His daughter Megan (Lake Bell) is not on the force but her husband Jimmy (Colin Farrell) ...

Rachel Getting Married

October 24th, 2008
Rachel Getting Married isn’t so much about Rachel (Rosemarie DeWitt) although her upcoming nuptials do focus on her psychologically fragile sister Kym (an Oscar bound Anne Hathaway although impossible to ugly up no matter how hard they try). She’s checked herself out of rehab for the weekend to attend Rachel’s fall wedding at the family’s upper middle class Connecticut home now run by her ste ...

Closing the Ring

October 24th, 2008

Closing the Ring is the name of a brilliant book by Winston Churchill chronicling a critical time in the Second World War. This film of the same name is also about the Second World War but has nothing to do with Winston Churchill and is far from brilliant. Misha Barton who flamed out on the TV series The OC has resurfaced sharing a character with Shirley MacLaine - who is very good but no m ...

Passchendaele

October 17th, 2008
Passchendaele is a village in Belgium that in WW1 became synonymous with the phrase cannon fodder. It was also one of the places that Canadian military bravery helped morph this vast country of only 6 million people at the time from colony status into a nation. Canadian actor Paul Gross known for wearing his maple leaf on his sleeve has been working long and hard to get this project on screen ...

Battle in Seattle

October 17th, 2008
Battle in Seattle has the streets of Vancouver doubling as Starbucksville and takes a look behind the troubled scenes of the 1999 protest of the World Trade Organization meeting in the Emerald City. Ray Liotta gets his stride back playing Seattle Mayor Jim Tobin who is all for first amendment rights but feels he has outsmarted planned protests to interfere with the global corporate confab. Un ...

Morning Light

October 17th, 2008
Morning Light is the name of a speedy sailing ship with the raison d’etre of streaking from California to Hawaii in a race called TRANSPAC. The ship belongs to Roy E. Disney who nowadays is a live ringer for his Uncle Walt Disney’s reanimated cryogenically frozen head. In his lifetime he’s done the race 19 times and won it in 1999. Now he’s out to be the benefactor for a handful of kids hover ...

Body of Lies

October 11th, 2008
Body of Lies unites two powerhouse performers Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe (emphasis on “house” here as Crowe put on about 50 pounds for the role). Crowe is Ed Hoffman a Langley CIA honcho who firmly believes in the U.S. Middle East mission and can vacillate all day on the need to win. DiCaprio plays Roger Ferris, Hoffman’s legs in the hot zones who spends most of the film healing new ...

Sex Drive

October 11th, 2008
Sex Drive is a teen road picture with a too cute name that could not be funnier even though the premise goes back over 20 years to The Sure Thing. Josh Zuckerman plays Ian with all the raging hormones of a high school grad that go unsatisfied because of his shyness. This may be because his real passion for his best friend Felicia (Langley’s Amanda Crew) is a lost cause although it’s obvious t ...

RocknRolla

October 11th, 2008
RocknRolla would suggest a lot of hard edged power chords but mostly we’re dealing with deception, payoffs, bribes and money laundering as London mobsters try to muscle their way into a veneer of legitimacy. The only musician we meet is a chart topper with a golden arm and a talent for coming back from the dead. We meet Johnny Quid (Toby Kebbell) after he’s resurrected himself to steal a pain ...
