What attracted me the most to view "Notting Hill" at first, was the fact that it is mostly located in one of London's most colorful suburbs, the titular Notting Hill. Since I have spend quite some time in London myself, a bit of nostalgia [...]

Erin Brockovich

May 21, 2012 // 0 Comments

It is hard to believe but it has been 13 years since Steven Soderbergh released "Erin Brockovich." Long enough, almost, to no longer remember the "sexual favors" trailer that Universal used to bring the film to people's attention [...]

"Duplicity" is one of those films that kind of flew under my radar. I saw the trailers for the theatrical release, never paid much attention to them and then completely forgot about the film. Until Universal Home Entertainment sent over the [...]

’America’s Sweethearts’ was one of this summer’s better comedies, no doubt in part due to the great cast the film had to offer, including Catherine Zeta-Jones, John Cusack, Billy Crystal, Julia Roberts, Christopher Walken and Hank Azaria, and [...]

The Mexican

Among the countless modern ultra-violent thrillers and action films, it is great to see movies occasionally that are within those genres but not entirely targeted at teenagers, and dare to have a heart, despite their dark and violent nature. Gore [...]
