Black Widow

There is a Bible verse that speaks of being "dead while she liveth." While it is not for pleasure that Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) lives, it might be the best way to describe the eponymous central figure in Black Widow. Because while we watch her back story, set between Captain America [...]

The Bourne Legacy

The cinematography in this film is amazing. Scenes like the one of a cabin in the woods miles from nowhere with falling snow are well captured, as are the scenes of an airborne plane in a snow storm. But the violence of the film is a dark contrast to these scenes. Spies are trying to wipe out the [...]

Dream House

This is one of those films that if you go to the restroom during the movie you might not know what is happening when you return. The film takes a sudden shift somewhere just beyond the half-way mark and then the viewer must decide if what is happening is in a character's mind or is really a [...]

Unfortunately, Suzie never makes it home. As she crosses the cornfield she comes across a man who [...]

The Fountain

What do you call a movie that goes everywhere and nowhere at the same time? You call it "The Fountain." I must say, I am a science fiction fan but this movie lost me from the very beginning. Interestingly enough, you would think you would get it since every scene is shown 3-5 times due to [...]

The Constant Gardener

This was a disturbing film that portrayed how the helpless in the world can be taken advantage of by those with financial motives. Shot with flash backs, and visual memories, the plot was slightly hard to follow. Much of the film's offensive content could have been removed without changing the [...]
