Mr. Brooks

 Mr. Brooks

With very few exceptions (Zodiac), the serial killer genre is dead. Or, at the very least, is completely exhausted with nothing new to say. Along comes Mr. Brooks (2007) which attempts to offer the novelty of Kevin Costner, known mainly for playing upstanding...

 Twin Peaks: The Definitive Gold Box Edition

Twin Peaks holds a special place in my heart because it was responsible for getting me seriously into movies. I had always enjoyed watching them but once I saw the Pilot episode of Twin Peaks, directed by David Lynch, I had to track down and watch everything...

 Flood

I’m a huge movie lover. I’ve spent the last 30 odd years watching films and I have got to say ‘Flood’ is by far the biggest honk of Camel shit I’ve ever sat through – 120 minutes of pure pain. The basic “premise” runs like this…estranged...

 Fletch: The “Jane Doe” Edition

For my money, Fletch (1985) is the best film Chevy Chase ever made. I can put the movie on at almost any time and still find it just as funny, no matter how many times I have seen it. And yet, the film is too often dismissed as just another dated piece...

 A Mighty Heart

Ever since Angelina Jolie won an Academy Award for her memorable role in Girl, Interrupted (1999), she has gradually gotten further and further away from the kinds of roles that won her that coveted accolade in the first place. And so it was with some...

 You Kill Me

In the 1990s, director John Dahl was the go-to guy for clever, neo noirs with Red Rock West (1992) and The Last Seduction (1994). After thoroughly mining the genre the only direction left for him was comedy and this results in his latest crime film, You...
