    cooking, so I'll make this review just as relaxed and inspired with too

    much love of food and Julia Child.

    Edge of Darkness

    Not even close to Mystic River

    In Edge of Darkness, Mel Gibson plays Boston detective Tommy Craven, hardly cowardly, who craves for revenge of his murdered daughter, Emma (Bojana Novakovic). We are warned that nothing is as it appears, and that is true here except that the trailers and the trail of clich?d events lead to some easily-guessed outcomes.

    Extraordinary Measures

    These boys have been in better movies.

    A Ford wreck.

    Now I remember why I didn't care for Lorenzo's Oil?too much sentiment over kids with diseases.

    Although Google vs. China is a long way from the apocalypse, the battle does underscore mankind's core belief in the rights and privileges of reading and learning. Attempts at suppressing that freedom, such as the book burning in Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, have met with fierce opposition. Join that theme with the Bible and you have the motifs that underpin the post-apocalyptic Book of Eli with Denzel Washington as Eli.
