Intolerable Cruelty (Widescreen) <b>DVD</b> ~ George Clooney
Intolerable Cruelty (Widescreen) DVD ~ George Clooney
Miles Massey (George Clooney) is a ruthless divorce lawyer and Marilyn Rexroth (Catherine Zeta Jones) is an equally ruthless gold-digging wife in this Coen Brothers take on the screwball comedy genre. The film takes place in a slick, shiny and heartless Los Angeles-it's a place with no sympathy for losers. In the old thirties' comedies, there was always an element of humorous class confrontation (and sympathy for losers) that gave the films an edge-there's not enough of it here. If we knew a little bit why Miles and Marilyn were so driven (Miles seems to have a father problem, but we never really learn anything about Marilyn) it could put their behavior into perspective.

Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code - Book #3 by Eoin Colfer
5.0 out of 5 stars Good Dad, Bad Dad, July 9 2004
In this third Artemis Fowl tale, Artemis gets into a jam when he tries to sell a tricked up piece of hardware cobbled together from technology he's filched from the fairy world. In an uncharacteristic lapse of judgment, he tries to sell it to Chicago Bad Guy Jon Spiro. Artemis's dad is back from the Artic, but he's changed.

As usual, the LEPricon… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Bundle Up, Artemis!, July 2 2004
Artemis Fowl, thirteen year old master criminal, runs away from his oppressive boarding school when he receives a cryptic message suggesting his father is still alive and being held for ransom by the Russian Mafiya. The fact that Artemis is so anxious to rescue his missing dad shows us that underneath his emotionally detached exterior, there's a lost boy wishing for a semblance of a normal family life. At the same time, Artemis's old enemies the elves have their own problems. There's evidence of human interference in their world and of course, Artemis is their prime suspect. For once Artemis is actually innocent, but he and elves join forces to defeat their mutual enemies. Again, elf… Read more
