Color of Money, The

The Color of Money is a good movie, but perhaps not a good sequel. In revisiting the shady, obsessive world of former pool shark Fast Eddie Felson (Paul Newman), Martin Scorsese provides us with a character so different from the one found in Rober...

Departed, The

The Departed is a perfect example of why remakes shouldn't be dismissed out of hand. Director Martin Scorsese and screenwriter William Monahan have taken the B-grade Hong Kong crime flick Infernal Affairs and re-imagined it as an American epic tra...

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

With a title like Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, one shouldn’t expect to take the movie seriously and that’s the attitude the filmmakers anticipated audiences to have. A comedy caper that relies more on the charm of its stars than the twistiness...

I'll Do Anything

This certainly isn't the first motion picture to focus on father/daughter bonding, nor will it be the last. But I'll Do Anything has the distinction of being enjoyable and entertaining, while bringing a new twist or two to an old subject. No...

Outbreak

Apparently, it isn't enough for a plague to be the villain. A microscopic entity, "one billionth [human] size" with the potential of wiping out the population of the United States in 48 hours, doesn't represent a sufficient threat. Therefore, Out...

Primary Colors

It would be possible to write pages and pages comparing and contrasting the reality of Bill Clinton's 1992 Presidential campaign with the fictional one of Jack Stanton, the candidate in Primary Colors. Likewise, it would be equally possible to dev...

Something's Gotta Give

I wanted to like this movie more than I actually did, because it addresses a couple of provocative issues head-on, without too much sugar coating. The first is the Hollywood tendency to devalue middle-age female actors, relegating them to supporti...
