A unique cops and robbers flick with Don Cheadle ( Crash ) and Brendan Gleeson ( In Bruges ).
A black FBI agent from Wisconsin teams up with an unorthodox Irish policeman to bring down international drug smugglers.
These two great actors are a hilarious pair.

If you love horses ( and who doesn’t ) you’ll love this movie, although the story is kind of slow.
It is rated PG 13 but the gratuitous violence of World War 1 is subdued for a broader audience.
It is a Dreamworks / Spielberg production so the cinematography is well above average.
2011 – Rated PG – 3 out of 5 Stars
This sleeper movie really does the job.
Written by and starring Britt Marling as Rhoda Williams. Directed by Matthew-Lee Erlbach. Also starring William Mapother, it was released in theaters in July of 2011.
An unexpectedly great flick. Not your normal sci-fi, Another Earth is just that. A duplicate of our own planet that dominates much of the background in this interesting film, although the characters, story and sub-plot are what really shines.
Rhoda, with her acute interest in astrology, has just been accepted to MIT. Driving home somewhat inebriated from a party, she is distracted by news on the radio of the discovery of another planet, supposedly a duplicate of our own. She has a head-on collision with famous composer John Burroughs and his wife and daughter are killed. Rhoda spends four years in prison and returns home bereft of her earlier ambitions. She takes a job as a janitor working incognito for the ruined man whose family she killed. I shall say no more.
Wait ! See this movie !

Christopher Plummer won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor and we called it.
A man’s wife dies and he decides to finally come out of the closet – at 72 years young.
Ewan McGregor does a great job as Plummer’s son. Funny and poignant.

I’m not a big fan of Woody Allen movies but this one is superb.
It’s filled with great writers, poets, painters and artists of all kinds from the 1920′s.
Kathy Bates is perfect as Gertrude Stein.
This is an excellent movie with lots of interesting characters. It almost made me a fan of Owen Wilson.
