Martin Scorcese is famous for his character-driven movies, movies that dig deep into human souls, exploring the obvious and the hidden in them. "Casino" is no different and gives us a deep and frighteningly realistic look into the characters’ [...]

Ron Howard’s action-thriller "Ransom" is an exciting ride with some wild and unexpected twists and turns, a wickedly exhilarating movie experience. Although the movie exhibits some weaknesses in the script and in its elaboration of the [...]

It’s a rare commodity when a movie can leave a person with the impression that he’s just sat through a very, very weird flick. I have to admit that All Day Entertainment’s "The Sadist" was just such an experience for me. I mean this in the [...]

Hoodlum

February 1, 1998 // 0 Comments

"Hoodlum" is an impetuous movie, based on legendary characters from the 30’s-era Harlem crime scene. Though not completely true to history, neither is it absolutely fictitious. At first glance it appears to be like many other ’30’s crime [...]
