Jessabelle Trailer


Jessabelle is still feeling the horror after a being involved in a car accident which killed her boyfriend and left her unable to use her legs. She travels to the home she grew up in in Louisiana to be with her father and discovers a package there apparently left by her deceased mother. Inside are some video tapes which feature her mother giving her a tarot reading where she explains that Jessabelle is not alone in the house. It isn't long before Jess starts to understand what she means as she begins to feel stalked by a malevolent spirit. She finds a gravestone in the woods with her name and birth date on it and starts to have a number of near death experiences. On telling her father about the tapes, he insists that the thing on them wasn't her mother. So who, or what, exactly is it?

10 Things I Hate About You Review


OK



There's just no excuse for making a Shakespeare knock-off with "Savedby the Bell" quality dialogue. When a movie modernizes The Bard, evenif it's set it in a high school, the chief obligation is to dialogue aboveall else.

Penned by two office temps-cum-screenwriters and directedby a feature film rookie (Gil Junger) as well, "10 Things" isa bright idea (I'm always an advocate of fiddling with Shakespeare), butit is an interpretation without poetry or rhythm, occasionally cashingin on multi-syllabic, Scrabble-winning words in a misguided attempt tomake its characters look rebelliously intellectual.

An American Rhapsody Review


Very Good

Film doesn't get any more passionately personal than writer-director Eva Gardos' semi-autobiographical "An American Rhapsody," the deeply stirring story of a Hungarian family torn apart by Cold War persecution, reunited through immigration and tested by the stubborn determination of a teenage daughter to explore her roots.

Gardos lived with guardians in rural Hungary until she was 6 because her aristocratic Budapest parents -- publishers by trade -- had to leave their infant daughter behind in order to escape arrest in the wake of the 1949 Communist coup d'etat.

Resettled in suburban Los Angeles after an arduous, dangerous trek across barbed-wired borders to Switzerland, her mother persevered by persistently petitioning every politician and aid organization she could find for help securing little Eva's transport to America. When she finally succeeded, the girl was spirited from the arms of the only family she'd known to be flown to a strange new world of subdivisions, televisions, big sisters and Elvis Presley songs.
