Knight and Day
Since Tom Cruise totally lost his mind a couple years ago, becoming a wacky character in his personal life, I’ve been wondering when he was finally going to make use of that energy in movies. We caught a brief glimpse of it in the 2008 comedy “Tropic Thunder,” where Cruise played the foul-mouthed film producer Les Grossman, however it was only a bit part. In the action packed “Knight and Day” starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, Cruise finally makes crazy work for him in the role of rogue spy Roy Miller.

The Ugly Truth
Last Tuesday I had the opportunity to catch "Dead Snow" on Demand, and it was everything I hoped it would be. To enjoy the film though you truly need to suspend your disbelief, because if Nazi zombies are not enough, there are tons of really ridiculous, impossible events that occur.

This self-aware horror film makes many hilarious references both directly and indirectly to other movies of the genre. Characters are incredibly cliché and the dialogue is woefully written, but it is an action packed gore-fest featuring some of the most delightfully brutal horror movie deaths.
