Where “The Rite” went wrong

The Rite

I was sitting at home trying to decide whether to see “The Rite” or “The Mechanic”, and I finally came to the conclusion that I was in the mood for something scary. From psycho cannibal to half man, half wolf, I have always thought Anthony Hopkins makes a good villain. So when I saw the trailer for “The Rite”, I was restless with anticipation of seeing him as another creepy character. I was hoping to be scared out of my seat like those trailers for the movie “Paranormal Activity”. It’s been a while since that’s happened and I thought that maybe this would be the movie.

Golden Globe Awards - Why The Social Network was the winner?

The Praise

Ben Affleck - Not Just a Pretty Boy Actor

The Town

Jon Hamm, from the hit series “Mad Men”, does a brilliant job as hard hitting FBI S.A. Adam Frawley. Adam Frawley is relentless in his pursuit of Bank Robber Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) and his crew. Leaving no stone unturned, Frawley tracks the crew to Charlestown, a small Irish Catholic neighborhood in Boston, Mass, the so called “Bank Robber Capital”. Doug MacRay ends up falling in love with a witness, Claire Keesey(Rebecca Hall), to the crews last robbery.
