4.0 out of 5 stars What Could Have Been, Aug. 6 2003
As with many other films, Phone Booth fell short on its potential. Instead of expanding the horizons of the movie, the director (Joel Schumacher) decided to cut the film in half. Don't get me wrong; I was on pins and needles waiting to see what was going to happen next. But at the conclusion of the movie, I looked at my watch and noticed that it was only 88 minutes long. Katie Holmes' character was a waste at best. I kept waiting to see why the hell she was in the movie at all. However the two main stars (Colin Farrell and Keifer Sutherland) were superb. Keifer had me forget about his day job (the hero on 24). He was back to his evil ways, just where he is at his best. Colin Farrell seems… Read more
The Recruit <b>DVD</b> ~ Al Pacino
The Recruit DVD ~ Al Pacino
"The Recruit" is just a stepping stone for Colin Farrell. This fast paced action movie is a "C" at best. There is too many twists and turns for anyone to catch up with.

Young Guns (Special Edition) [Import] <b>DVD</b> ~ Emilio Estevez
4.0 out of 5 stars The Forgotten One, March 24 2003
Young Guns was a film that wasn't appreciated at its time. Sure it made 45 million dollars in 1988, but sometimes profit is overlooked by the quality of the film. Everytime I watch Young Guns it makes me smile. The excellent cast(except Charlie Sheen) was outstanding. But the performance by Emilio Estevez was one step higher. His protrayal as "Billy the Kid" was phenomenal. The scene where Billy taunts the man in the bar, and then shoots him, was hilarious. Even though Young Guns was overlooked, in my eyes it will never be forgotten.
