Between One Crazy Summer and Better Off Dead, it’s almost impossible not to pick the latter as the more satisfying of the two Savage Steve Holland and John Cusack collaborations. The ’80s comedies have both aged well, though. Neither film was a hit at the box-office, but time has been kind to them. Show More Summary

Let's face it, CELL is not Stephen King's best book. However, it has a killer opening scene and enough thematic material for director Tod Williams to make a solid movie out of.

A history resource article by Mary Harrsch © 2015 Last night I had the dubious "opportunity" to view "Dragon Blade" starring Jackie Chan, John Cusack and Adrien Brody.

John Cusack's 2015 output might seem surprising … until you look closer to see the pieces of him that belong in the portraits he's done of an emotionally troubled musical legend, a Roman soldier in a martial-arts adventure and a firebrand Catholic priest. He played Beach Boy Brian Wilson in his...

I waved to his my-age dad sitting in his car, waiting to take them to the freshman dance. Show More Summary
