Here are the movies that film critic Roger Ebert has reviewed lately: Killing Them Softly, Wuthering Heights, Fat Kid Rules the World, Life of Pi, Hitchcock, Rise of the Guardians, Red Dawn, Scrooge & Marley, and Tales of the Night.
Here’s the preview I have for you this week: Killing Them Softly.
But no one ever said life is fair.
Killing Them Softly has this going for it: It reminds me of the Roberta Flack song and the movie Play Misty for Me. It also has a sterling cast: Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini and lotsa others.
But it also has hitmen with the Mob and plenty of killings, two of my least favorite movie topics.
