Has there ever been a road movie quite like this? Not that I am aware of. And you know, that's why it's so fun.
Transamerica stars Felicity Huffman as Bree, a pre-operative, male-to-female transsexual who is about to realize her life-long dream of becoming a fully realized woman.
Do films like Pay it Forward and The Life of David Gale make you squeamish or violently ill? Do you like it when a 7-foot hairy man beats you over the head with a mallet marked "film concept"?
As the new film, Bee Season, concluded, I was reminded that once more Hollywood was screaming from one of their mystical pulpits and trying to reach out to the masses.
In the new sci-fi film, Charlize Theron stars as Aeon Flux, an ultra-slick infiltrative revolutionary in the distant future. Her body has been enhanced with all sorts of gadgets and gizmos, and honed to perfection.
The year is 1995. All-4-One are atop the pop charts and Chris Brander (Ryan Reynolds) is finally graduating from high school. After five long years of being tortured by the school jocks for being the fattest kid in school, he is finally ready to get out into the real world.
During this time of year we are always force-fed some family holiday film that tries to teach us a valuable lesson. I am not talking about The Santa Clause or The Grinch. I am talking about sappy detrimental films like 2003's Cheaper by the Dozen and others.
Pushing Tin co-stars John Cusack and Billy Bob Thornton re-team for the dark comedy, The Ice Harvest.
Cusack plays Charlie Arglist, who is an attorney in Wichita, Kansas and has just embezzled $2 million dollars. Together with his partner, Vic (Billy Bob Thornton), Charlie plans on leaving Wichita forever on Christmas Eve.
Ever since he burst onto the scene in the sitcom Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place, Ryan Reynolds has been an untapped talent.
Some documentaries may have interesting subjects but are real yawners. I remember struggling through Grey Gardens by the Maysles brothers.
I can't say that I am huge fan of Johnny Cash or overly familiar with his music.
Do you know what's strange? We are already witnessing the fourth Harry Potter film and it just seems like yesterday we were introduced to the boy wizard as he began his first day at the wizarding school, Hogwarts.
