Master Filmmakers

Steven Spielberg,John Ford, Frank Capra and Clint Eastwood are a few of the masters of film-making.

2009 Oscars Not Many Surprises star
Despite its off-putting title, Slumdog Millionaire deserves its Oscar win as Best Picture. Too bad Best Actor couldnīt have gone to two men this year: Frank Langellaīs performance as Richard Nixon is every bit as spectacular as Sean Pennīs as Harvey Milk.

A Simple Twist of Fate (1994) star
Steve Martin does an exceptionally clever job of modernizing George Eliot's novel Silas Marner. It's the fault of our bankrupt modern culture that in doing so he strips the original story of its morality.

Go Ahead, Believe! star
Some fans of the TV series have panned the new X-Files film, but it deserves a fair viewing. The Scully/Mulder magic is still there.

Kung Fu Panda Not For Children star
The artwork is beautiful and the voices well done, but he violence is disturbing and the take away lesson is questionable.

Shine (1996) star
The object of much bitter controversy and mean-spirited personal attacks on Helfgott and his wife, the movie Shine is a well-crafted and satisfying story about suffering and redemption.

Six Movies About Joan of Arc star
Filmmakers have been drawn to Joan's story since the very beginnings of the movie industry. Here's an overview of six of the best known.

The Best Years of Our Lives Still Timely star
It may be sixty years old, but The Best Years of Our Lives is a long way from being out-of-date. A must see for everyone, especially families of returning veterans.

The Sea Within (2004) star
Anyone who saw Javier Bardem as an implacable killer in No Country for Old Men will be blown away by his performance as a lovable, long-suffering quadriplegic in this Spanish film.

W. (2008), Oliver Stone's 2-Hour Lampoon star
Josh Brolin and Oliver Stone say they wanted to "humanize" the 43rd President in the biopic W. All they succeed in doing is to reinforce the image of George W. Bush as puppet of his advisers.

What's A Cult Film? star
Few people agree on a definition of a "cult" film. The problem may be that such movies fall into several categories. Here's a description of the universal characteristics of a cult film and an attempt to categorize the different types.

Why We Love A Christmas Story star
In December TV channels play it all day and some people watch every time. A Christmas Story has taken its place beside It's A Wonderful Life as America's favorite Christmas movie. Why do we love it as we do?
