The Departed

March 12, 2007 // 0 Comments

Martin Scorsese's genius and talent explodes in this rip-bang, return-to-gangster form of a film that easily deserved the big dog Oscars heaped on its plate at the end of February. I remember my first viewings of 'Raging Bull,' [...]

Syriana

June 22, 2006 // 0 Comments

"Syriana" is one of those understated film that you do not hear too much about when they hit the box office. Not a lot of fanfare, not a lot of advertising, but soon after the film is turning out to be a true gem and is showered with award [...]

The Bourne Supremacy

Following the success of "The Bourne Identity" and eager to build a bankable franchise, Universal Pictures has adapted another one of Robert Lludlum's acclaimed super spy novels, "The Bourne Supremacy." After a successful DVD [...]

Ocean’s Twelve

Since I thoroughly enjoyed Steven Soderbergh’s remake of "Ocean’s Eleven" I was eager to see its sequel, "Ocean’s Twelve" as well. Immediately Soderbergh once again makes it clear that he is not working with standard formulas. [...]

Just in time for the theatrical release of the sequel, Universal has re-released "The Bourne Identity" as what they call and Extended Edition. Mimicking even the look of the theatrical posters of the sequel one can’t help but wonder if [...]

All The Pretty Horses

May 16, 2001 // 0 Comments

Ted Tally. Matt Damon. Billy Bob Thornton. What do these three gentlemen have in common? A big fat Oscar a piece for their screenwriting talents, that’s what. Put these three in a room, throw in a best selling novel, and one could expect a pretty darn [...]

Courage Under Fire

January 1, 2001 // 0 Comments

Released in 1996, Edward Zwick’s ’Courage Under Fire’ was the first major motion picture to use the events of the 1990-91 Gulf War as a backdrop. While the setting may be contemporary, the issues tackled in the film are universal to all powerful war [...]

The Talented Mr. Ripley

June 26, 2000 // 0 Comments

When I was young I have always been intrigued by murder mystery stories and I went through Agatha Christie and Edgar Wallace novels three books a week. Patricia Highsmith has also always been a well-respected writer in the genre and it is actually [...]
