Academy Award winner George Clooney stars in the title role of this suspense thriller that has him playing an assassin looking forward to getting out of the racket. All goes according to plan until a beautiful Italian woman in the form of Violante Placido enters the picture. Cool movie poster by the way - would have been Steve McQueen back in the day.

Danny Trejo stars in this Robert Rodriguez flick that drew its first breath as one of the mock trailers that accompanied Tarantino and Rodriguez's 2007 Grindhouse double feature.

Count us in on any movie that features a gun-shaped whiskey flask and Cheech Marin as a dual shotgun-toting priest. Bring it on!

The fourth installment of the hugely successful RESIDENT EVIL franchise, RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE is again based on the wildly popular video game series, and will this time be presented in 3-D.

Easy AEasy A - September 17, 2010
Emma Stone and Amanda Bynes square off in this film that (according to the trailers) feels a lot like a classic John Hughes '80s movie. After a little white lie about losing her virginity gets out, a clean cut high school girl sees her life paralleling Hester Prynne's in "The Scarlet Letter," which she is currently studying in school - until she decides to use the rumor mill to advance her social and financial standing.

We like sarcastic humor.


BuriedBuried - September 24, 2010
Ryan Reynolds stars in this Sundance thriller that had us sold simply on its one sentence synopsis: A U.S. truck driver in Iraq finds himself trapped inside a coffin with only a cell phone and a lighter. The film was shot for less than $2 million over 17 days in Barcelona... and takes place entirely in a coffin.
