I don't usually review TV shows here(this'll be the first) but I felt compelled to do so with this one. I was really skeptical with Terra Nova, but after watching the 2 hour season premiere, I'm bought, hook, line and sinker. I don't just want to do a review, I want to do a full-on head to head comparison with a show that ended it's first season a couple of months ago, Falling skies(More like failing skies, amirite?) It's strange how similar they are but how much better Terra Nova pulls it off. Fair warning, I don't remember Falling Skies all that well(Let that say how good of a show it is).

Shoot your cars and drive your guns, we're reviewing Killer Elite!
This has the feel-good killing duo of Clive Owen and Jason Stratham with a high-octane trailer that has the song 'Rock you like a hurricane.' but doe it live up to that actioniness?
|Looks like one of those guys is about to eat Clive Owen. Run Clive Run!|

Put on your face masks and lock your doors, we're reviewing Contagion!
Contagion releases a deadly virus upon the populous and then shows us how we as a people would handle it. But is it as dramatic and panic-filled as their trailers would lead us to believe? SPOILERS AHEAD.
|I'm hoping this reads more 'creepy' than 'trippy'.|

Start smilling and be happy, we're reviewing Our Idiot Brother!
Our Idiot Brother is a nice little family comedy. Like Ned and his family, Paul Rudd as Ned is the glue that holds this silly romp together. But is it funny enough?
|I'm really really happy with how this came out.|

|This is my first montagy sort of sketch. I think it came out rather well, especially Robert Ryan.|
It was a genre that popped up right after WWII in a time when people didn't trust the world they lived in anymore. Noir created the hard-boiled detective, the femme fatale, the crook with a heart of gold, and many more staples you see in movies, games and TV today. And even though the genre is sometimes associated with that played-out detective formula, it was also a time when film makers were experimenting with story and technique.
So here are my top 5 all-time favorite Noir movies, and a great place to start if you're looking to get into the genre after the jump!
