BOTTOM LINE: Keanu Reeves appears to be getting better with age playing a hard-nosed cop to perfection in this gritty police drama where nothing is as it seems, and with a story that will keep you guessing right until the end. THE GOOD: Sporting an older look and a slightly bigger physique, Keanu Reeves plays Detective Ludlow from the LAPD; a straight-shooting cop who does whatever he needs to do to put the bad guys away. The opening scene show how he cleverly infiltrates a group who have kidnapped two teenage girls; he kills them all mercilessly before making the crime scene look like he was fired at first. Enter Forest Whitaker who plays Captain Wander, who covers up what happened to ensure justice is done. Who cares if they didn't do it by the book? This initial scenario is quite intriguing and introduces us to a world of characters that are all gray and keep us guessing as to their motives. You never really know who the bad guys are. Some are bad who do good. Some are good who do bad.
Whenever Michael Moore gets up on his soap-box and starts beaming his opinions to the world on a given topic, you know it will be biting, highly-opinionated and controversial. When tackling the sensitive subject of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the US and the causes behind it, Moore does what he does best, but surprisingly, he also injects a bit of humor in to the piece which is largely aimed at none other than George W. Bush and his cohorts. Although this film has been placed in the category of documentary, don't be fooled; it's not about facts or analysis, this is a very liberal opinionated piece and works brilliantly as an alternative voice to the established media and the US Government which has been banging the drum for some time that the direction the US took after 9/11 is all above board. Moore does manage to take a few very well calculated shots at Bush and the US government's action since 9/11, although he does fudge the facts in certain instances when they don't suit his point.
Watching the continuing adventures of FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) was a thoroughly engrossing and fun experience from the 90's as the two intrepid detectives went in search for and prove unexplained phenomena such as ghosts, monsters and a conspiracy involving the major powers of the world and an evil alien race intent on colonising the planet. The latter had become a somewhat frustrating experience in the television series as only hints were ever dropped about what was going on between the government and the aliens; it was thought that the feature film coming hot on the heels of Season 5 of the television show would offer some big explanations but unfortunately, this film is just as elusive as the show, which I'm sure disappointed many fans out there. This DVD presents a slightly edited film which includes a couple of more scenes which actually provide some definitive answers which were left out of the theatrical release and one has to wonder why they were left out in the first place.

The contemporary American society has transformed dramatically from being family-oriented and morally conscious to becoming selfish and dissolute. No one character epitomizes all the downfalls in today's society more accurately than Homer Simpson from the television series The Simpsons. As a stereotypical male in the working class, Homer Simpson represents the common population, suggesting that his characteristics are shared by many. The fact that most people indulge in his character and enjoy the show because they can relate so closely to his character shows the degeneration of the times. His character, although sometimes exaggerated and almost satirical, carries a guilty, sad truth about the condition of the American people. By being portrayed as gluttonous, violent, and willfully ignorant, Homer Simpson is an allegory of the 2000s. Gluttony, the over-indulgence of food, is one of the seven deadly sins in the Christian religion. It is one thing to take pleasure in eating and another to indulge food or drink for the sole purpose of gratification.

According to Carrie Bradshaw, Girls move to New York City for the two L's: Labels and Love. I cannot say that was my motive for coming to the Big Apple however; I do believe there is some truth behind that statement. The new Sex and the City movie has finally hit the big screen and saying that I was excited about seeing it is an understatement. This film truly makes you feel as if you are falling in love again for the first time with the charismatic characters. Throw in fashion montages and the romantic backdrop of Manhattan and it just does not get any better than this. I heard so many rumors about what to expect from the movie like dream sequences and that one of the main characters died, well thank the "goddess" that was not at all accurate. Just from a fashion standpoint, the delicious labels of Dior, Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik and Vivienne Westwood are in your face and I personally could not get enough of it. I mean for any fashionista trained or still in training your mouth will be watering and I swear the moment you leave you will feel like your collection of labels are subpar.

There are no sure things in Hollywood, but one genre of horror movie that seems to always just draw people to it is the zombie movie. I think part of what makes zombie movies terrifying, even the older ones with slow zombies, is the taboo. They're not human, but they're close enough to bring up the cannibalism taboo. There's something great about zombie movies, which with George Romero's influence have also become renowned for having hidden political and social commentary. This combination makes these horror movies particularly interesting, even above many of their peers. Zombie movies also tend to have a cult following, keeping them popular even years and years after release to DVD. There are several main factors that make up a great zombie movie. #1: Interesting Zombies.
