Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The (Criterion) (2008) "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (CCBB) is a curious case indeed.  The film received so much praise during its release that I lost count.  I remember seeing trailers and interviews of the movie practically a year before its release.  It was surely hyped.  But for me, it didn't live up to the hype.  Don't get me wrong.  It was good, just not as good as I had envisioned. I have always loved David Fincher's works.  "Se7vn," "The Game," "Panic Room" among several others are all suspenseful and masterfully put together.  CCBB however doesn't live up to the potential created by those films just listed.  I knew it was going to have to be a long film and didn't mind because I figured every moment would be worth it.  Unfortunately, I was wrong.  There were too many drawn out moments that ...

Fly Away Home Long before she gained fame with her role as Rogue in the X-Men films and before her sultry role in HBO's "True Blood," Anna Paquin graced the screen in "Fly Away Home."  Despite her Oscar win in 1993 for "The Piano," Anna's career was a little slow going.  Nonetheless, she delivers a solid performance in this film.  IN a blast from the past, Siskel & Ebert gave the film two thumbs up.  Way up. "Fly Away Home" doesn't quite stand the test of time.  However, it is still a solid film that gives us tragedy and hope. Anna Paquin stars as Amy Alden, a 13 year-old girl that survives a tragic car accident in which her mother is killed.  Her estranged father, Thomas (Jeff Daniels) comes to her bedside to take her home to Canada from her home in New Zealand.  She ...

Marley & Me "Marley & Me" is the tear-jerker of the year.  I don't care who you are, you will ball like a baby at the end of this film.  Even if you know it is coming, tears will be rolling down your cheeks.  I have never cried so hard in my life. The film is based on the popular novel and real life events.  Having read the book, I can say that the film delivers as much power as the written word.  Marley appears in the film exactly how I pictured him when reading the book. The story follows a family, beginning with the man and wife.  John and Jennifer (Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston) are newlyweds that move from Michigan to Florida.  Both are writers for newspapers.  However, Jennifer has this life plan, and next on the list is a baby.  To put ...

Cadillac Records (2008) Unless you're a student of music, you may not realize rock-'n'-roll grew out of the blues, and the African-Americans who developed this new, infectious sound had to wait years and rewrite history to receive the credit they deserved.  Cadillac Records salutes these unsung pioneers, and paints a searing portrait of the turbulent time in which they lived.Leonard Chess (Adrien Brody) loves the blues – so much so, he's willing to cross Chicago's color lines to promote some talented, struggling African-American artists who one day would achieve legendary status within the music industry.  He's also desperate for success and willing to do almost anything to achieve it.  To Leonard, a poor Polish immigrant's son, a spanking new Cadillac represents the fulfillment of the American dream, and he's determined to get one for himself and everyone he manages.  After a stint as ...

Brokeback Mountain "Brokeback Mountain" has been hyped ever since its release in theaters back in 2005.  Honestly, I cannot see what all the fuss is about.  The movie has some shining moments, but the majority of the film lags something awful.  That apparently did not stop the film from winning three Academy Awards, including Best Director. The film has been the subject of so many gay spoofs if is unbelievable.  The Jake Gyllenhaal and the late Heath Ledger both deliver terrific performances.  However, the relationship between the two gets old quite quickly.  The rest of the cast is stellar as well.  Both Michelle Williams an Anne Hathaway are brilliant as wives who have gay husbands.  Ledger and Gyllenhaal star as Ennis and Jack, respectively.  The two young men are cowboys that look for work where they can.  In the summer of 1963 the ...
