Twilight’s Edward Cullen may be the vampire receiving the most attention these days, but there have been many other vampires worth watching over the last century. Bram Stoker’s Dracula was published in 1897, and his mysterious lead character has been inspiring movies, books, and art ever since.

Movie Flashback – Matt Damon Starrer The Adjustment Bureau

Movie Flashback – Matt Damon Starrer The Adjustment Bureau

Movies
Screenwriter George Nolfi (The Sentinel, Timeline) made his directorial debut with The Adjustment Bureau, an intelligently and romantically enhanced adaptation of a short story, written by the renown science-fiction author, Philip K. Dick. This phenomenal sci-fi themed film, with modest special effects, is philosophical as apposed to futuristic; think Inception meets The Matrix, but decelerated.

However, the caveat here is not simply that these perceptions are illusions, especially created for humankind, but experiments designed to appraise individual merit. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt are excellent as the film's stars, but it's the story that truly radiates on sc...

Jack Lemmon Plays TV Cameraman Lovably schlubby Harry Hinkle (Jack Lemmon) is a CBS network cameraman who’s mildly hurt covering a Cleveland Browns game when a star player accidentally bulls into him along the sidelines. Enter Harry's greedy, ambulance-chasing brother-in-law, “Whiplash Willie” Gingrich. Walter Matthau took the supporting actor Oscar for Willie, the role that marked his first on-screen pairing with Lemmon. Willie, the prototypical shyster lawyer, wants Harry to fake a much more ...
