Manchester By The Sea Trailer


Lee Chandler lives a life of self-imposed exile but that's not how he's always been. For many years prior, he lived in the small town of Manchester-By-The-Sea where the rest of his family and his fiancé all live. It's a picturesque fishing town and the pace of life is slower than any city could offer and the Chandler's all live good lives. Now, Lee lives in Boston and works as a janitor and his strict day to day routine has been brought about to limit the amount of people he see and has to deal with.

When Lee's brother, Joe, dies Lee is made the guardian of Patrick, Joe's teenage son. The news comes as a surprise to both men. Patrick is dealing with the loss of his family and now is forced to live with his uncle who's distanced himself from the family years prior.

Patrick doesn't understand his uncle's reluctance to relocate and move back to the small neighbourhood he used to call home. As hard choices are made and old acquaintances become part of the present day picture, Lee must not only do what is best for himself but also consider his nephew and the wishes of his brother.

Dark Skies Trailer


Daniel and Lacey Barret have always lived a happy and quiet life in their typical suburban American home with their two loving children Jesse and Sam. However, their tranquillity is tested when strange things start happening around the house. Objects are rearranged in their home, hundreds of migrating birds are killed after flying into their windows compelled by some unknown energy and the family start to develop strange illnesses and injuries on their bodies starting with Sam. It becomes obvious that they are dealing with a malevolent alien force intent on destroying the family, children first, and Daniel and Lacey must confront the force head on if they have any chance of survival. To help them, they enlist the help of an expert who claims to have knowledge on what has been happening, after discovering that similar things have happened elsewhere.

J. Edgar Review


Very Good
Exquisitely designed and directed, with finely tuned performances that shine even through some heavy make-up, this true story never quite succeeds in conveying its central relationship. Sure, repression is the point, but passion would have made the film heartbreaking rather than just sad.

John Edgar Hoover (DiCaprio) was only 29 when he became director of the Bureau of Investigation (later the FBI), and he ruled supreme until his death in 1972, holding eight US presidents in the palm of his hand with his notorious files of personal secrets. But he also had loyal friends, including his secretary Helen (Watts) and his right-hand man Clyde (Hammer). As a young man, his mother (Dench) instilled in him a hatred of liberalism and homosexuality, so his enemies included Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy (Donovan) and himself.

Outsourced Review


Very Good
The offshoring of U.S. jobs remains a hot topic in the news... and now it's a hot topic in the movies, too. (At least four projects called Outsourced have been produced in the last three years alone!)

Everyman Josh Hamilton carries this premise handily: His game of computer Solitaire is interrupted by his boss, who's telling him the customer service call center he manages is being shipped overseas, to India. If Todd (Hamilton) wants to keep his job, he'll fly over there and train the new folks, getting their time-per-call numbers down to something more profitable.

Kicking And Screaming (1995) Review


Excellent
Opening night of the Austin Film Festival and Screenwriters' Conference brought me this little gem, a story of five guys who just got out of college, the three women that float amongst them, and the question that haunts them all, "What the hell am I going to do with my life?"

I wouldn't look to Kicking and Screaming for the answer. Rather, the movie is a hilarious example of what not to do when you graduate. The guys, Chet (Eric Stoltz), Grover (Josh Hamilton), Max (Chris Eigeman), Skippy (Jason Wiles), and the show-stealing Otis (Carlos Jacott), can't seem to give up the college life. They hang out at college bars, woo freshmen, and sneak back into classes. Otis can't even seem to get out of his pajamas.

Alive Review


Excellent
Ah, the splendid sight of a good movie after a string of bad ones. Understand me, I have seen about five bad movies in a row, and, when I watched Alive, I broke my streak. Perhaps then it is fitting that I should write my review of Alive last (the last of a marathon writing stretch of seven reviews), that is should be my final respite after such a long series of typing.

Alive is the true story of a plane crash that occurred in 1972 in the Andes. Come on, you know what I'm talking about, the one where the survivors had to resort to cannibalism? Yeah, I saw that episode of Seinfeld too. The movie has been parodied way too much for something of its caliber.

On_line Review


Good

A smart, melancholy subculture slice-of-life and an unromantic roundelay between half a dozen denizens of the internet underground, the stylish low-budget indie "On_Line" has serious art-house sleeper-hit potential.

Taking place in large part over the internet (through webcams, QuickTime windows and creative split-screen effects), the interwoven stories revolve around a cybersex web site called Intercon-X, operated out of the sparse Manhattan apartment of two recent college grads.

Harmless, insecure, broken-hearted, cynical John (unshaven, sad-eyed Josh Hamilton, "The House of Yes") and charismatic downtown lothario Moe (Harold Perrineau, "The Matrix Reloaded," HBO's "Oz") don't seem to be making a fortune, but the site has become the primary source of human interaction for most of the film's damaged and cautious characters.
