"Tetro" - The movie "Tetro" is "The Godfather" director, Oscar winner Francis Ford Coppola's first original screenplay since his Academy Award winning "The Conversation." The movie "Tetro" is his most personal film yet, arising from memories and emotions from his early life, though totally fictional. It is the bittersweet story of two brothers, of family lost and found and the conflicts and secrets within a highly creative Argentine-Italian family.One great thing about the movie "Tetro" - Oscar nominee Klaus Maria Brandauer (Best Supporting Actor, "Out Of Africa") stars. One not-so-great thing: "Tetro," although completed, and filmed entirely on Francis Ford Coppola's dime, has yet to find a distributor. Imagine, the director of arguably the two best movies in motion picture history, "The Godfather" and "The Godfather: Part 2," is having trouble with finding a movie studio to release his latest film.

In the 2006 R-rated action film "Crank," hitman Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) spent twenty-four hours in over-drive: fighting, killing, and keeping his adrenaline flowing at full-force to combat a deadly poison injected into his body. Now, in the 'high-octane' sequel "Crank 2: High Voltage," Chev Chelios has managed to survive—and is about to face a brand new day. Picking up immediately where the first movie left off, "Crank 2: High Voltage" finds Chev Chelios surviving the climactic plunge to his most certain death on the streets of Los Angeles, only to be kidnapped by a mysterious Chinese mobster. Three months later, Chev wakes up to discover his nearly indestructible heart has been surgically removed and replaced with a battery-operated ticker that requires regular jolts of electricity in order to work. (That plot sounds a little familiar!)

"Public Enemies" - In the action-thriller "Public Enemies," acclaimed filmmaker Michael Mann directs Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard ("La Vie En Rose") in the story of legendary Depression-era outlaw John Dillinger (Johnny Depp) -- the charismatic bank robber whose lightning raids made him the number one target of J. Edgar Hoover's fledgling FBI and its top agent, Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale), and a folk hero to much of the downtrodden public. No one could stop John Dillinger and his gang. No jail could hold him. His charm and audacious jailbreaks endeared him to almost everyone -- from his girlfriend Billie Frechette (Marion Cotillard) to an American public who had no sympathy for the banks that had plunged the country into the Depression.
