Defiance – Daniel Craig and Liev Schrieber – A movie bout the LOLocaust. The movie is based on the true story of a group of Jews who hid out in the woods for several years during the Nazi occupancy of their country.  Three brothers lead the group as it increases in size they build a community andchoose to live in the wilderness risking death by nature rather than give in to their oppressors. Drama riddled with packets of action and some top notch acting by Liev!

7.5/10


Doubt – Meryl Streep and Phillip Seymour Hoffman – Based in the Catholic Church of 1964, the story follows 2 Nuns, a Priest, and an alter boy. 1 nun believes the Priest the other doesn’t. Carefully crafted moral suspense that will have you asking “What happened in the rectory?”.

8.3/10


Choke – Sam Rockwell and Anjelica Huston – Based in the Novel Choke by Chuck Palahniuk, the story follows a sex crazed man desperately trying to find out who is father is before is demented mother dies. Very funny, smart, and sexually charged.

7.5/10

Taken – Liam Neeson – Nuff said!

Neeson plays an ex-CIA agent who’s daughter is kidnapped while on vacation in france (yet another reason not to go there). He relies on his “particular set of skills” to help track down her abductors and exact revenge!  Action laden spy movie suspense pulled or perfectly by the GREAT Liam Needson!!!

8.0/10

The Wrestler – Mickey Rourke and Marissa Tomei – Mickey Rourke plays a down and out ex pro wrestling superstar. Trying to get his life in gear with his estranged daughter and win the heart of a beautiful stripper, the fights a constant internal battle against his self destructive ways throughout the film. Great story, well shot, tailor made for Mickey. He gets my vote for Best Actor Oscar although Sean Penn won tonight in the SAG awards. Manly drama at its finest.

8.5/10

Body Of Lies – Leonardo DiCaprio and Russel Crowe – A thrilling espionage flick attacking terrorism and the methods used to fight it. DiCaprio does a pretty good job in a semi action role and Crowe, as usual, slides right into character. A suspenseful and dramatic story glide you easily from one action sequence to another and although i don’t speak the language DiCaprio’s Arabic sounds surprisingly convincing. Biggest gripe with this movie is DiCaprio’s silly facial hair! I mean seriously look at it!

7.8/10
