A visual treat from one of the most innovative directors of this century. The characters are menacing, endearing, and powerful. The narrative is timeless, intriguing, and masterfully crafted. Unfortunately there is a fair bit of nonsense in the fi... Read the full review »

A stone cold neo-noir, jam packed with eye popping action sequences, an intriguing story-line, lovable characters, and contagious humor, L.A Confidential does it all. The genre was at its best with Blade Runner,, but L.A Confidential gives us anot... Read the full review »

For me, Return of the Jedi is the definitive Star Wars movie, in the sense that it captures everything Star Wars is as a franchise, and displays it with the utmost energy and compassion. Star Wars has always been about destiny, family and good tri... Read the full review »
