Adapted from Will Eisner’s classic graphic novels, “The Spirit” follows Denny Colt (Gabriel Macht) as a street-hardened hero who returns from the grave and wears the mask of The Spirit. The visuals and cast of femme-fatals is impressive. But not even Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes, and Sarah Paulson can save this slow tempo movie.

 

Kate Winslet won a well-deserved Oscar for her role as a Nazi war criminal in “The Reader.” The story

unfolds the lives of a generation coming to terms with the crimes of another.

 

Mickey Rourke’s famed “come-back” movie “The Wrestler” tells the story of Randy “The Ram” Robinson, a

washed-up professional wrestler who is tempted in the ring once more despite the risk to his life.
