Reaping, The College professor Katherine Winter (Hilary Swank) is a well-regarded debunker of presumed “miracles.” On a research expedition in Chile she delves into the local miracle of an aged corpse’s extreme preservation, and finds that those who have come to worship and seek guidance at the tomb are subject to hallucinogenic visions. Exploring the area around the tomb, Winter and colleague Ben (Idris Elba) uncover the cause: illegal subterranean dumping of toxic waste, which is responsible for all the presumed phenomena. Back at the university, Winter is approached by Doug Blackwell (David Morrissey), a resident of the isolated town of Haven, Louisiana, who tries to elicit her help in investigating a local phenomenon that has the residents spooked. The local river has seemingly turned to blood, and as that event is reminiscent of the Ten Plagues of Egypt in the Bible, ...

Carlito's Way In “Carlito’s Way,” actor Al Pacino, director Brian De Palma, and producer Martin Bergman reunited for the first time since making their classic film “Scarface (1983).” Returning to the gangster genre, something De Palma was reticent to do, and using similar story elements brings inevitable comparisons between the two projects although “Carlito’s Way” comes up short on its own due to its mediocre and illogical script. Two novels by Edwin Torres, “Carlito’s Way and “After Hours,” are the source materials for the film. The first of the rise of Carlito Brigante, a Puerto Rican gangster from the streets of Spanish Harlem, who works his way up to kingpin of the heroin trade, and his eventual arrest and conviction for 30 years. The second novel, from which the film’s story is primarily taken, shows Carlito’s life after an early release from prison ...

Aviator, The Warner Bros. has released Martin Scorsese’s “The Aviator” in several forms, including a two-disc, standard definition DVD. They’ve now released it again, this time on HD DVD. All of the extras and, of course, the movie remain the same as in the standard definition set. Most of what follows is a reprint of our review of that set. First, though, a discussion of this film as a high definition viewing experience. To be brief, it’s great. Scorsese always gives a lot of thought to how his pictures look, but he seems to have spent even more time on that aspect of “The Aviator” than he usually does. In his informative, entertaining commentary track (which includes comments by his long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker and others), he reveals himself as a die-hard, enthusiastic film buff who ran with the production ball. The ...

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix J.K Rowling's Harry Potter saga has become a worldwide sensation among all age groups. Children are actually reading books instead of playing video games and watching TV. They revel in the fantasy adventure portion of the story and characters. Meanwhile, adults are able to enjoy fabulous storylines, in-depth characters, and visual/auditory sensationalism. In the latest Harry Potter installment, The Order of the Phoenix, all our favorite characters are back. One major draw in the Harry Potter saga is that the cast is dedicated to the story and return film after film. Nothing is more jarring than when a saga uses different actors from film to film. For example, the Batman films have gone through four different actors for the character of Bruce Wayne in five films. So, it is pleasant to see Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and the other young actors ...

Shrek the Third In what seems like a time of sequels, and even more so, trilogies, all your favorite fairytale creatures are back in “Shrek the Third”. After a so-so performance in “Shrek 2”, creator Mike Myers is back in the swing of things with the third installment. While not as ingenious as the first Shrek film, “Shrek the Third” delivers a much more coherent and laugh-filled film than number 2. In film number one our fearless Shrek (Mike Myers) went off to rescue the princess in the highest room of the tallest tower and battle the fire-breathing dragon, all to get the deed to his swamp back from the sinister Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow). In the second film, the Fairy Godmother and her son Prince Charming plotted to take the princess away from Shrek and take over the kingdom of Far Far Away. ...
