It is always a shame when a movie with so much promise turns out to be a disappointment. In "88 Minutes," John Gramm (Al Pacino) works as a college professor and a psychiatrist for the FBI. Upon receiving a phone call in which someone threatens to kill him in "88 minutes," Gramm must narrow down the suspects ÃÂÃÂÃÂ- who are all pretty much his students - before time runs out.
"Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!" was one of my favorite books as a child. Considering Hollywood's recent tarnishing of "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "Dr. Suess' The Cat in the Hat," I did not look forward to "Horton's" film debut with much enthusiasm.
However, "Horton" was magnificent in capturing the creativity, innocence and delight found in Dr. Seuss' stories.
There have been horror movies that have truly terrified us. Movies such as "Psycho," "The Exorcist," "Alien" and "The Shining" have terrified audiences long after they left the theater. "The Eye" is not one of them.
Many people might believe that "There Will Be Blood" is too long and uneventful to be entertaining.
However, it must be understood that the film is not an action movie, but a character sketch. As a film, "There Will Be Blood" is not necessarily a terrific, must-see motion picture, but it is a good, solid movie and I recommend it.
