Orphan [2009]

“I think people should always try to take the bad things that happen to them in their lives, and turn them into something good. Don’t you?” Another horror movie in a time when scary movies aren’t that “scary” anymore. “Orphan” is the story of a family that decides to adopt […]

A young stockbroker eager to get on top becomes the apprentice (so to speak) of a greedy and ruthless broker in this powerful movie directed by Oliver Stone. Michael Douglas gives a fine performance in his oscar winning role as Gorkon Gekko, the man who believes that “greed is […]
