4.0 out of 5 stars Matt Damon in Sci-Fi movie, 8 Sept. 2011
I purchased this film having seen the trailer, but being unsure of how it would play out.

I found the Adjustment Bureau to be both interesting and exciting and liked it a lot. Matt Damon, as always, was totally believable and I would recommend it to others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Denis Lehan's best., 5 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Gone Baby Gone [DVD] (DVD)
Denis lehane is an excellent author and the series of books concerning private eyes Kenzie and Genarro place him alongside Michael Connelly and Harlan Coben as one of America's top crime writers.

The film Gone Baby Gone is based on what is possibly the best of the Kenzie/Genarro books and Ben Affleck, in his directorial debut, has created an excellent movie, staying true to Lehane's storyline and getting a knockout performance from brother Casey as Patrick Kenzie.

The film barely surfaced in ths country, as it was originally due to come out at the same time as the Madeline McCann tragedy occurred and the film's storyline of child kidnap was too close to disturbing reality to get the kind of release it deserved.

The film also has strong performances from Ed Harris, Michelle Monaghan and especially Amy Ryan as the missing child's mother.

I highly recommend this film to everyone who has yet to see it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Howard does it again!, 19 Nov. 2009
Howard Hawks made this "screwball" comedy in 1941. It followed in the wake of Twentieth Century, Bringing up Baby and His Girl Friday and merely consolidated the directors reputation as the finest in this genre. It's success is in no small way attributable to the performances of Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck as the adorable Sugarpuss.

It's less hard-boiled than His Girl Friday, but has enough charm to delight even the most severe critic with it's obvious nod in the direction of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

The contribution of the rest of the seven dwarfs, particularly Oscar Homolka, Henry Travers and Richard Haydn help to ensure that Ball of Fire will continue be enjoyed by viewers for decades to come.

Thanks for them all Howard.
