Lucky Number Slevin was so-so, for the all star cast, but Sir Ben was solid

Brett says it will be the best movie since "Chill Zone". Josh (Dead Eyes) Harnett signed on as Chief Brody. Ratner says he won't wait till 90 minutesin the film to show the shark. That son of bitch will pop his cgi head up out of the water in the first scene, when he eat Fergie in her first movie role....

Has signed on as the nazi-war criminal dentist in the remake of "Marathon Man". Michael Douglas will be playing the Dustin Hoffman role, but instead of a distance runner he will be a mall walker. Directed by Tim Story.

What's with this criminal-sorting-his-life-out-in suburbia subgenre? What started out as a fresh take on post-Godfather-cinema/existential crisis is getting out of hand. <p>I count seven movies, including two sequels. Some are better than others, obviously. But the concept has been done to death.

"we have no jobs because of Hillary Clinton!" Conservative personal responsibility at its finest. can't find your boot straps or did you think only the blacks had them? Sad little man

This sounds pretty good.

Not a lot like the Matador either, which was like I was expected. Like Quint said, an interesting character piece, with really crisp story-telling and direction. Didn't quite buy the romance angle though. Wilson was great too, which Quint forgot to point out--and after just seeing Idiocracy, he's 2 for 2 in my book.

If you moonbats can blame Bush for hurricanes and tidal waves, I can blame Hillary for the shitty economy in western part of state she represents. Now, do you want the choke slam or the air Kamala?

This sounds good. Tea Leoni does nothing for me, but what the hell, I'm in!!

Which I have only done a few times in my life. It couldn't decide whether it wanted to be a dark comedy, a drama, or what, and decided to be neither. Teal Leoni was poorly cast, she was really unbelievable in the role. Ben Kingsley was great in Sexy Beast and numerous other films, but in this his character just wasn't compelling. I should say it wasn't his performance, it was the material. Even the great Philip Baker hall was given nothing to do. Overall: unbelievable characters (especially Tea Leoni's; poor script; didn't know what the film wanted to be. Saw Paris J'etaime the next day and it was great.

I love Rounders. I was in college when I saw it, writing movie reviews for our college paper and spending my money that I earned on beer. Doing nothing really with my life. I didn't play poker, didn't even know what Texas Hold 'Em was-remember this was way before celebrity poker showdown and the WS of Poker was on all the time-, but man did that movie speak to me about following through on dreams and what you're good at and the cost of friendship and when to let a deadbeat friend go. Still haven't done much with my life but I'm closer then I was 10 years or so when that movie came out. Ok enough of my Rounders love...You kill me looks great

That shit was horrible. I'd leave that one out the next time you're recommending Dahl

It was uneven, but I'd still recommend it. It was weird, though. I'm a recovering alcoholic, and I go to bars to see bands, hang out with friends who drink, and have no problems at all. But I saw this movie and it was a massive trigger. Watching Frank struggle with booze hit close to home, more so than dramas about the same subject. It was good to see SF again. The bridge stuff was sweet.
