Alpha and Omega features the voices of Justin Long, Hayden Panetierre, Danny Glover, and Dennis Hopper (in one of his last performances) and tells the tale of two Canadian wolves, Kate and Humphrey, both of whom are relocated by Fish and Game officials from their home in Jasper National Park to Idaho.
There are two categories of movie-goers: those who love M. Night Shyamalan’s films, and those who despise them. I count myself among those who thoroughly enjoy the works of Shyamalan and would add his newest film, Devil, to his repertoire of great productions. Known for his use of the classic “twist,” Shyamalan deviates slightly from his previous films in that the ending of Devil does not include a twist, but shockingly, a valuable Christian message.
Resident Evil: Afterlife is written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and is the fourth in a series of films based on the concept of the Resident Evil video game series. The franchise follows the exploits of Alice, played by Milla Jovovich, as she attempts to survive a zombie apocalypse while simultaneously trying to destroy The Umbrella Corporation, the evil organization that caused it.
The independent British exposé film Overdose: The Next Financial Crisis released last spring has been made available to Internet viewers on YouTube for free. The documentary provides a valuable warning for Americans that the real estate bubble/bust is small compared with the current bailout bubble being built up with government “stimulus” money and practically zero percent interest rates manipulated by the Federal Reserve Bank.
George Clooney’s newest film, The American, directed by Anton Corbijn, is a sort of combination of Clooney’s past films Up in the Air and Ocean’s Twelve/Thirteen. In one sense, Clooney’s character is deep, profound, and brooding, much like his character in Up in the Air. Yet though detailed and precise he is also an immoral “bad guy,” which is of the same vein as the character he played in the Ocean’s films. Unfortunately, The American deviates from the aforementioned films in that it fails to maintain the audience’s attention, sympathy, or concern for the character’s final outcome.
