    Review: 'Down The Shore' With James Gandolfini & Famke Janssen An Overheated Jersey Melodrama

    What is it about Jersey that causes filmmakers to make films which constantly talk about escaping from or dreading a return to the Garden State?

    'Zero Dark Thirty' Is the Best Movie of the Year, But Mark Boal and Kathryn Bigelow Can't Explain It
