Fatal Attraction (1987) Adrian Lyne is known for his erotic thrillers.  Being released alongside "Indecent Proposal," "Fatal Attraction is noted as Lyne's better work of the two.  Arriving six years before its successor, I find "Fatal Attraction" to be an equal to "Indecent Proposal."  Both films lack that attention grabbing aspect.  I found myself wanting to do other things while this movie was playing.  While this is not as bad as squirming in my chair during a chair, it is definitely not a good sign. "Fatal Attraction" came five years before Douglas' role in "Basic Instinct" and seven years before his role in "Disclosure."  Michael Douglas has had a lot of practice with the suspenseful thriller genre.  All three of these films, especially the first and the third, have Douglas portraying a character that is caught in an intense relationship with a psychotic woman. In ...

Inside Man (2006) "Inside Man" is one of Spike Lee's finer films.  Clive Owen and Denzel Washington deliver riveting performances, as does Jodie Foster.  2006 was a big year for Clive Owen with both "Inside Man" and "Children of Men."  The film was enough of a success that it has spawned a sequel that is due in theaters in 2010.  The sequel will contain much of the same cast members, including Denzel Washington and Clive Owen. "Inside Man" is a suspense thriller that keeps you involved from beginning to end.  While you as the viewer are not always on the same page as what is going on on screen, there is enough information floating around to keep your mind active.  At the same time, there isn't an overwhelming amount of undisclosed information being thrown at you.  It is a perfect balance. Denzel Washington stars as ...

Children of Men (2006) Granted, I know "Children of Men" came first, but it is awfully similar to "Babylon A.D."  The plots are the same and so is the acting.  The only difference is the sci-fi action explosions that are in Babylon, while Children contains more realistic warfare.  Similarities aside, "Children of Men" is definitely the better of the two, but still it falls short as far as I am concerned. The film stars some good actors, and with the exception of Michael Caine, they are all a let down.  Clive Owen and Julianne Moore are distant from their roles.  Michael Caine however is brilliant as a drugged out, 65-years-too late hippie.  Julianne Moore part is brief and unfortunate as when she leaves the film there is no one of interest on the screen to complement Caine. "Children of Men" is the story of the future ...

Falling Down (1993) "Falling Down" is a little known film, but perhaps one of the better films directed by Joel Schumacher.  I remember seeing this film on television back in the mid-1990s.  It was rather engaging, but I only ever remember bits and pieces of the film, so I was thrilled when the film was announced for release on Blu-ray.  The film unfortunately is not as good as I remember and that is one of the reasons why it didn't four stars from me. "Falling Down" is a film about being fed up with the rudeness of the people in this country and mass consumerism.  Michael Douglas stars as William Foster, a disgruntled ex-defense department employee.  The film begins with a traffic jam, of which we are all familiar with.  The weather is stifling and the noise around Foster is mounting to a breaking ...

Changing Lanes (2002) "Changing Lanes" is being released simultaneously with Affleck's other film of the same time period, "Paycheck."  For some reason, "Changing Lanes" gets more respect than "Paycheck."  I can't understand for the life of me why.  The film is worse, and in the case of Blu-ray, the video and audio quality is worse.  The film was given two thumbs up by Ebert & Roeper, which doesn't make any sense.  Others called it the best film of the year.  Maybe I'm blind, but I don't see the attraction. "Changing Lanes" is based on an interesting concept, but it gets dragged on forever and ever.  My patience started growing thin.  I kept finding myself looking at the timer to see how much time was left in this film.  In addition, the characters and acting gets on your nerves after a while.  You don't know ...
