Last Of The Mohicans, The (Director's Definitive Cut) (1992) “The Last Of The Mohicans” is an epic tale, based on the James Fennimore Cooper novel of the same title.  It is bold and dramatic.  This film and “Dances With Wolves” are two of a kind.  While the film may be of epic proportions, it ultimately is simply average when you really think about it. The film doesn’t have a strong cohesive factor.  It jumps around from scene to scene, getting tighter as the film progresses.  However, for the first act of the film you have to wonder what is the motivation here.  While I certainly don’t want everything to be obvious from the start, this film loses audiences to simple questions, like “who is that character?”  “What was there name again?”  Good luck trying to identify characters by name in this film.  This is partially due to the audio track ...

Guardian, The (2006) "The Guardian" gets a bad rap, when on the contrary it is quite an excellent movie.  It certainly won't appeal to everyone, but I found it to be a heartwarming and real movie.  Sure, it is filled with clichés, but what movie isn't?  What makes this movie interesting to watch is that those clichés don't detract you from the story.  I recognized the moments in which certain elements felt contrived, but didn't really give them another thought.  I continued with the story. This film can be categorized as one about a hero that makes sacrifices for others.  Therefore, it is quite appropriate that the film is about the Coast Guard, a branch of the military that gets little respect and notoriety.  But, "So Others May Live" is quite the appropriate motto for the film. Kevin Costner, giving one of his best performances ...

Coyote Ugly (The Double-Shot Edition) (2000) I know that this film came out on Blu-ray a while ago, but it was sitting on my shelf and something made me want to review it.  After watching it again I’m not sure exactly why.  Perhaps it had something to due with being in Vegas the other week and visiting the Coyote Ugly bar at the New York New York Hotel. Anyhow, “Coyote Ugly” seems to have had a brief shining moment and then faded into the abyss.  The film is short on everything from good story to good acting.  However, it does have some catchy tunes that spawned a multi-platinum soundtrack.  It also helped bring LeAnn Rimes back into the pop-scene spotlight. “Coyote Ugly” is a typically summer Hollywood movie.  It has a tiresome and predictable romance and a “you can achieve anything you dream about” story.  Oh, and how ...

Chloe (2009) It is a rare thing to find a quality independent film.  Usually they are so bland or full of the filmmakers own inside jokes that no one in the audience understands them.  "Chloe" is precisely the opposite.  It shows what independent films can be under the right director and cast.  While the mainstream audience can easily immerse themselves in the film, it is filled with thematic elements and contrasts that will appease a great number of film enthusiasts. "Chloe" is more than an erotic thriller.  It approaches a true work of art.  Once seen, it is easy to seen how this film could have turned were it to come from someone else.  However, Atom Egoyan does a terrific job of demanding the most from his actors and staying true to his vision.  This film has not been popularized for the masses.  ...

Eclipse, The (2009) "The Eclipse" is best described as a ghost drama.  However, avid movie watchers won't be too surprised by the ghostly sequences.  At its roots, "The Eclipse" is a love story that copes with loss in life (and death).  There is a somewhat love triangle in the film.  Note, this is most certainly a film for adults.  There is simply nothing here for children and young adults to admire. "The Eclipse" won several Irish film awards.  However, it left me without an afterthought.  It just didn't strike a chord with me.  Audiences that are in tune with drama meets horror will definitely find interesting moments in this film.  Despite its win for Best Script, the writing is very somber and uninteresting.  The film can't exactly be watched while muted, but there are times in which I drifted off to another place.  The ...
