Trailer for Gone Girl features a murder she wrote

I think this might be my favorite trailer of 2014 so far. Based on Gillian Flynn's novel of the same name (but Flynn claims the film will have a different ending) and directed by David Fincher, stars Ben Affleck as the prime...

Review: Alex Cross photo
Review: Alex Cross
by Matthew Razak

James Patterson's literary detective/psychologist Alex Cross has had a decently successful life in films. Both Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider are competent thrillers handled with panache. Also, being portrayed by Morgan Freeman helps anyone out. He hasn't been seen on screen for a while, but now with the eponymous Alex Cross bringing him back he's set to make a triumphant return.

Too bad you have to be in a good movie to have a triumphant return. Alex Cross is the type of film that makes you hate watching movies. A film so ill conceived from beginning to end that by the time it's over you find yourself slack jawed in awe at how bad it truly is. I've never seen a Madea film, but if this is the best acting Tyler Perry is capable of I mourn for the state of American cinema.
