Unstoppable (2010)

Director: Tony Scott Writer: Mark Bomback Pretty good action thriller.  Exciting directing and it gets to the point.  Washington and Pine do their jobs.  They shoe horned in some family back ground stuff to give them stakes but it doesn’t … Continue reading

Heckler (2007)

Barney’s Version (2010)

Hereafter (2010)

Director: Clint Eastwood Writer: Peter Morgan I think Clint Eastwood is vastly overrated as a director.  Looking at his filmography I’ll say the last great movie he made was Unforgiven in 92.  I skipped this one in theatres but just … Continue reading
