The Burning Plain (Blu-ray) (DVD Talk)

Rent It The Film: Alejandro Gonz lez I rritu may have concluded his string of morality films with Babel , but writer Guillermo Arriaga obviously wasn’t ready for that to happen.

The Time Traveler’s Wife (Blu-ray) (DVD Talk)

Love Happens (Blu-ray) (DVD Talk)

Rent It THE FILM There are certain decisions a film production can make that will immediately cast doubt on the movie at hand. Hiring irritating actors Judy Greer and Dan Fogler to play buddy roles in “Love Happens” is a terrific way to state to the viewer that the filmmakers have little to no imagination, […]
