The Disappearance of Alice Creed isn't just a thriller with a twist, it's a thriller made almost completely of twists, held together by three compelling performances.

Adam McKay's The Other Guys isn't a flawless comedy, but it does consistently deliver the laughs with a terrific cast bringing their A-game.

For Jon's new semi-regular feature, he's taking a trip through the magical world of Hulu to bring you defunct TV shows that are available for your free viewing pleasure, be it good or bad. On the first edition, he talks about his favorite cop drama show of all-time: the 2003-2004 reboot of Dragnet, starring Ed O' Neill. Don't worry everyone: Movie Mobsters isn't going to become Television Mobsters anytime soon.

Jacques Audiard's A Prophet is a relentless and thrilling look at relationships within the confines of a brutal prison system. It is one of the year's most emotionally powerful films.

Jean Pierre Jeunet's Micmacs is the arthouse equivalent of popcorn entertainment, delivering a visually delightful world filled with wild invention.

Batman: Under the Red Hood maybe animated, but it's as thrilling as any live-action. This installment is far more Dark Knight than Adam West.

Nolan takes us on a journey into a dream world with great characters, stunning backdrops, amazing special effects and pain staking attention to detail.

Arriving in a lackluster cinematic summer, Chris Nolan's Inception gives us pyrotechnics of a more cereberal nature. It's not just a great summer event, it's one of the best heist films ever made.

Life is Hot in Cracktown is in the vein of Love Actually or Valentine's Day...if you took out all the romance and comedy and threw in a whole lot of crack and despair. Oh, and Brandon Routh. Throw him in there too.
Review: From Paris With Love (2010)

Undoubtedly one of most disjointed films I have seen in a long time and one of the worst films from Luc Besson. The only saving grace is wondering what John Travolta was going to say or do next!
