Eagle Eye Decoded

As October looms ahead, we can only prepare for the great month of quality movies ahead of us. But, to celebrate the late season of blockbusters, I had to go back to the basics and see the much-hyped Shia LaBeouf in “Eagle Eye.” [...]

Henry: Portrait Of A Movie Review

Henry, played by the always great Michael Rooker, is a drifter. He spends time driving and working low-paying jobs. But he’s a little different than your ordinary drifter. Shots of murdered women are intercut with Henry’s menial activities, implying that murder may be his hobby. [...]

I hadn’t seen any of his movies, but I thought his inclusion was a little dubious and based solely on the popularity of Life Is Beautiful. I mean he made the list and Dario Argento didn’t? (aside- My greatest memory about Life Is Beautiful was when Benigni won the Academy Award for Best Actor. There was a cutaway of Tom Hanks looking thoroughly disgusted that he didn’t win, which I relished because he was turning into a thespianiacal elitist.)

A couple [...]
