  Angst & WerewolvesPDF files may take a moment to load

In the works since 1997, Blood and Chocolate--a movie based on the popular teen novel by Annette Curtis Clause--is finally coming to the screen. Gauging from the complaints its rabid, pseudo-Anne Rice groupies have been spewing all over the Internet Movie Database, the already difficult process of adapting popular fiction to film has become even more difficult than usual.

  "Mosaic" not quite the sum of its partsPDF files may take a moment to load

Comic book fans considering renting Stan Lee Presents: Mosaic, a straight-to-DVD animated movie from Lee's own Pow! Entertainment, have an important question to ask themselves: would they be willing to rent a movie titled, Stan Lee Presents: Festering Crap? Or, perhaps, Stan Lee Presents: A Waste of 72 Minutes? Mosaic proves that just because Stan Lee stamps his creative seal on a product, it doesn't mean it will be creative gold--a lesson that should have been learned from the Fantastic Four feature film.

5- Mission Impossible III

Though it suffered from some poor audience reception due to its "Tom Cruise is a nutjob" factor, the JJ Abrams directed spy-thriller is still easily the best of the series. Trumping even Casino Royale in sheer fun factor, MI:III suffered from none of the pacing problems plaguing its thematic cousin. With plenty of over-the-top stunts, a pseudo-intelligent plot-line and, hey, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, MI:III is a modern espionage classic.

  Film Review: BabelPDF files may take a moment to load

Brad Pitt, intimate relationships and a lack of communication. While the list bears similarities to Pitt's marital life, they're also all featured in the early Oscar-contender, Babel. At first, the premise comes across as a replica of last years' Oscar sweeper Crash, but it has enough unique elements to be its own story. Though the depressing end brings about an acute desire to commit suicide, Babel is ultimately successful thanks to a few stellar performances and a lot of well-built tension.

  Movie review: Borat lands in North AmericaPDF files may take a moment to load

Every so often a film staggers out of that horrid, fleshy place good comedies come from willing to make any sacrifice for some hardcore laughs, ready to be banned and burned if it means making a fool of some unsuspecting pussy-magnet-driving, homophobic, celebrity-worshiping Americans.

For the first ten minutes of Shortbus, the audience doesn't get a moment to recover from the non-stop dirty parts and sex scenes all over the place. After the first few minutes are over, people can start to relax as more characters start to keep their clothes on and the crux of the film begins to unfold. Underneath all the sex taking place in the film, there is an emotional storyline discussing the issues and eventually solutions for all kind of sexual problems.

  Film Review: God save the QueenPDF files may take a moment to load

Elizabeth II has the peculiar distinction of being one of the world's most famous, yet least-known people, and is therefore both a perfect and very difficult subject for a biographical drama. Difficult because those involved have very little to base their work on; perfect because few people will be able to point out inaccuracies in it.
