    February 3, 2012 | 1:12 pm

    Every so often a film surprises me…Sometimes in a good way…Sometimes in a not so good way.

  • Two Jews on Film: ‘The Grey’ review [VIDEO]

    January 25, 2012 | 2:15 pm

    It takes a lot for a film to truly scare me. I mean, after seeing hundreds and hundreds of movies featuring, knife wielding masked maniacs, cannablistic nuclear families preying on hot teenage girls and demon possessed embroyos, I’ve become kind of blaise about the horror genre.

    So...

    January 12, 2012 | 3:18 pm

    9/11…All you have to do is say that date and most people will have a reaction…usually an emotional reaction…And for me, that emotion is one of saddness…for the senseless loss that so many people experienced.

    Every once in awhile, you experience a performance by an actor that simply blows your mind…And that’s exactly what happened to me, when I watched Leonardo DiCaprio portray J. Edgar Hoover in Clint Eastwood’s new film, ‘J. Edgar’.

  • Two Jews on Film: ‘Tower Heist’ review

    November 4, 2011 | 2:02 pm

    September 22, 2011 | 12:20 pm

    First thing I must say is…I basically know nothing about sports. I do watch the Super Bowl but only for the commercials. That said, I absolutely loved ‘Money Ball’. Which goes to prove, that you don’t have to be a baseball fan, to think that this film, written by Aaron Sorkin and...
