I thoroughly enjoyed reading Addicted by Zane, so I was excited to view the movie. However, I must warn you, if you plan to watch this movie, I urge you to read the book first!! This adaptation of the book falls depressingly short; not only did it give the appearance of low budget but key points...

This movie is a heartbreaking to say the least, but it's not the type of heartbreak the movie initially refers to. In the beginning, the couple are in love, but cut to the next scene where the girl seems suicidal, as she jumps into the river somewhere in New York City. The movie is definitely...

I mostly chose this movie because my husband is a fan of Keanu Reeves, but when my husband told me that he wanted to watch again almost immediately after watching it I figured what they hey, why not give it a shot. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the plot. The plot is very sad and you will...

Ana Lily Amirpour makes her directorial debut with a bang, or should I say bite. A big juicy bite out of every film genre made. Amirpour's homage to film includes silent era makeup, James Dean beatniks and every dusty drama chronicling humanity's internal and environmental wasteland. "The Girl"...

I really enjoyed this movie. I love the effort that went into the costume and set design. It definitely paid homage to the origins of the movie, a Broadway musical.  I am not sure who wrote the screenplay, but I think keeping to the musical essence of the story is what makes this movie so...

I honestly hadn't seen the first Sin City since it came out almost ten years ago, I wasn't sure how they were connected or if they were supposed to be connected. I believe they are very loosely connected. The cinematography is awesome, but I did have trouble following the storylines because it...

   I grew up in a former British colony and I remember well hearing about Prime Minister Thatcher in the news for various reasons. Meryl Streep is a fabulous actress and I cannot think of anyone else who could have played the role of Mrs. Thatcher. Told in a flashback style the...

Vampire are not depicted in a tortured teenage love triangle in this movie, but as cultured and intellectual creatures living in Detroit and Tangiers. This movie is stylistic and atmospheric and full of literary jokes and allusion. It is just the right amount of cynical and dark, but also...

This movie was produced by Diego Luna, which he has proven to be a great director. I believe the actors were also a great fit for their roles. The story was somewhat sped up because it was a two hour movie, but it was still done with integrity. I think it was a great movie for being based off a...

This Coen brothers' flick was disappointing for me, compared to their previous works. Although the soundtrack is excellent and the grittiness of the '60s New York setting is romantic, the title character seemed to be completely lacking in sympathetic qualities and you end up not really caring...
