    John Michael McDonagh, like his brother Martin “In Bruges” McDonagh, is a writer and filmmaker. And what “In Bruges” did for Irish hitmen and Brendan Gleeson, John Michael's “The Guard,” opening this weekend in a few...
  • Brendan Gleeson finds his foul-mouthed voice with the McDonaghs

  • The Five Best Movies of the Summer

    In Bruges Universal Studios / 2008 / 107 Minutes / Rated R Clearly a week of releases of off-beat films, 2008's 'In Bruges' gets the blu-ray treatment with a handful of extras. With some outstanding performances by Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and...
  • Safe House

    Safe House
    Safe House had the worst trailer. It showed a cocky Denzel Washington trying to provoke a nervous Ryan Reynolds. And lots of explosions. The display ad in the newspaper had the worst tag line: No One is Safe. So when I brought my date on Valentine&...
  • Film review: 'The Raven' is a lackluster Edgar Allan Poe mash-up

    Film review: 'The Raven' is a lackluster Edgar Allan Poe mash-up
    Edgar Allan Poe's place in American literature would have been secure even if his death hadn't been completely bizarre and mysterious ... just like his stories. But to be found on the streets of Baltimore, delirious, ill, and wearing someone else's...
