Sunday, May 21st, 2006

**Home Page Sony/Columbia Pictures, 2006, Directed by: Ron Howard; Starring: Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, Ian McKellen The long awaited ‘block-buster’ movie is finally here, but is it really deserving of the title, or is it a ‘bust’, or maybe something in between?  Maybe it is just ‘good’ or ‘very good’.  The 40 million best-seller book […]
