Ben Afflecks' The Town, boasting scene stealing work by Postlethwaite, Hall and Renner and some of the best aerial photography of Boston you'll see, is one of the year's best entertainments. This is neo-noir done right.

Robert Duvall gives one of the best performances of his career as Felix Bush, a 1930’s hermit who throws himself a pre-death funeral bash. Bill Murray, Sissy Spacek and Lucas Black match him in skill and intensity in Get Low, a good-hearted, folksy treasure.

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.
This Tuesday Heather takes you back to a film that turned heads, and shocked many in 1996. Arguably Woody Harrelson's best performance The People Vs. Larry Flynt is a brilliantly written and directed movie that has stood the test of time.

This weeks Throwback Tuesday is a personal favorite of Heather's, a film that allowed Pacino to be loud crazy Pacino, Keanu a simplified dude, and featured the beautiful Charlize Theron and Connie Nielson. Thirteen years later, this film is still fun.
