The Host
Review (9.5/10)
(By Reginald Williams)

Every now and again a great piece of original entertainment comes along, something that takes a common theme, adds something sparkling and relevant and creates a new whole. In this case, it happens to be a breath of fresh air for a classic movie genre. That area of filmmaking is the "monster" film and the title of the film is The Host. The monster story in this movie is good but it's the film's family elements that make this film worthwhile ...

Iron Man
Review (9/10)
(By Brendan Cullin)

It's summer blockbuster time and Iron Man is the first big budget, big action movie to hit the silver screen in 2008. Starring Robert Downey Jr. as the billionaire playboy Tony Stark and soon-to-be iron-clad superhero, this movie delivers on all levels.

Beginning with the impeccable performances of Downey Jr. and Jeff Bridges (who plays Stark Industries CEO Obadiah Stane), the movie boasts an outstanding cast (including Terrence Howard, Gwyne ...

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Review (9/10)
(By Sean Cullin)

It was probably one of the most anticipated movies of all time. Next to the new Star Wars trilogy, I can't think of anything else that had this much hype and worry behind it. Everyone seemed to have an opinion of the film. Of course, I can only be talking about The Lord of the Rings. After taking 2 years and $300 million to film all three movies simultaneously, it is no wonder that The Fellowship of the Ring was the most anticipated movie of 2001.

Michael Clayton
Review (9.5/10)
(By Erin Cullin)

In 1760 B.C., King Hammurabi set the Hammurabi Code to stone and posted it in a town marketplace in ancient Babylon. I have no doubt that, the following day, the first ancient lawyer came strolling into the marketplace, trying to find ways to test the boundaries of that Code.

Since the birth of law, there have been lawyers. And there have been people who detest lawyers.

I am not sure when lawyers came to be held in such low regar ...
