    Tell No One

    Tell everyone.

    It's arguable that Tell No One is better than Hitchcock's Wrong Man; if not, then it is the best psychological thriller to come from our French friends since With a Friend Like Harry (2000). But why argue? it is a satisfying murder mystery exploring the deep, albeit clich?d, bond between a husband and wife and the odd occurrences that might identify the wrong man as a murderer.

    Swing Vote

    A winking eye . . .

    "It's not the voting that's democracy, it's the counting." Tom Stoppard

    Director Joshua Michael Stern is no Frank Capra, and Kevin Costner is no Gary Cooper or Jimmy Stewart, so the attempt to comment culturally on our voting is never quite successful in Swing Vote. Yet I am moved by that attempt, a poor reason for a critic to make any evaluation, but a valid one on human terms.

    The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

    At least Fraser is getting work.

    I am beginning to think that after the superior Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull this year, the summer fantasy-thriller genre ought to be mummified not to be reawakened for years. At least, that's how I feel about The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. As a knock off of the Jones adventure, it doesn't resurrect well.

    Ballot issue for the environment

    Columbus, OH – In this year's election for president, Congress, and the Ohio legislature, Republicans and Democrats may be at each others' throats. But when it comes to one Ohio ballot issue, the politicians are virtually hugging each other. Ironically, the issue that's brought them together is an issue that's not particularly high on the list of voters' concerns --- the environment. Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports.
