I demand prosecution of all those who commit heinous crimes in the name of honour. What was it, and how can they fight it. The opening scene is good alas, it's the bestand it's never boring how many bad films can make that claim. For a start, catching planes is optional, for most New Yorkers, catching public transport isn't.

An epic battle begins between Ash's modern tactics and the ancient minions of darkness.

Often, the physician would receive a regular retainer for making recommendations. Draw your own conclusions.

The subtle plot eventually discloses that Donnie Darko did actually die in "our" universe, and he's in a strange parallel alternate reality.

What freedom do we have when the government can do exactly what it wishes because it has manufactured a climate of fear like this administration has, and what freedom do we deserve when we as a society and as individuals just lie down and take it.

It is a short step from random subway bag searches, to random street searches, from making it optional to making it compulsory, from not asking for ID, to demanding it.

I hate to admit it, but I never caught the underground oddity. Once Oedipus realizes that he did indeed murder his father and marry his mother—once he sees the truth—he stabs out his eyes.
