It seems like puppets are the next hot thing in Hollywood - between watching Mel Gibson emote through a ratty sock in 'The Beaver' and Disney's revamp of 'The Muppets', there are a slew of new films on the horizon featuring actors made out of foam and felt (and no, we don't mean Hayden Christiansen). One of these…
One of the best of the film noir genre. Double Indemnity is a brilliant thrill ride of murder, lust, lies, suspicion, and betrayal. It's a great movie, a great piece by Billy Wilder.

Plot is simple:
A father comes to Hong Kong to avenge his daughter, whose family was murdered. Officially, he's a chef. Twenty years ago, he was a…Continue
Oh man. So many cool movie people died these past few months and now this.
"Jules Dassin, the director of some of the finest heist movies and films noir of all time, has died. He was 96.
