  1. Review: Draft Day (2014)

    Kevin Costner is no stranger to sports themed movies. The Tin Cup, Bull Durham, For the Love of the Game star has stared in five separate sports films and now rounds that number to an even six with the football themed Draft Day directed by Ghostbuster’s helmer Ivan Reitman.

Dripping with the lure and atmosphere of a Hitchcockian drama wrapped with a Cronenberg bow, Enemy challenges star Gyllenhaal to play two roles – Adam and Anthony – one a college professor and another an actor. The two are exact look-a-likes despite not being twins. Even their scars and beards match. Adam first discovers Anthony when watching a DVD ...
