The Bourne Ultimatum

Bourne is the logical product of the secret CIA program that made him, the dark routes by which a desire for surveillance and security gives way to brutal dominion and extreme measures.

Monkey Business (Part 4: August)

In past years, Hollywood purposely counter programmed these renowned Cineplex dog days, trying to offset the perception that cinematic scraps were all the studios had to offer. From the look of this lame list, it's apparently back to the filmic fridge for some patently warmed over offerings.

Edmond (2005)

An excellent noir, or a tragicomedy, about the repressed beliefs in all of us.

Edmond (2005)

Violence liberates Edmond from society's restraints, focuses him on fulfilling his own desires, makes him appealing to the opposite sex.

The Omen (2006)

By the time poor Kate visits a shrink who embodies all the institutional and moral restrictions she faces daily, you're wanting everyone to jump off rooftops, preferably with nooses.

The Prince & Me (2004)

'The truth is,' says Martha Coolidge, 'we all have to take care of ourselves before we do anything else.'"

The Bourne Supremacy (2004)

Embodying the ruthlessness of the eat-its-own CIA (as well as the entertainment industry), Bourne isn't seeking revenge in the usual sense.

Berkley-educated, Katherine is a 'forward thinker,' a 'bohemian' who believes that education opens doors.

Mona Lisa Smile (2003)

Katherine has her hands full, even aside from looking for romance (though this happens too, as this is, after all, a Julia Roberts movie).

A Guy Thing (2003)

A movie of this sort depends on a relentless illogic.
