Carrie Rickey

Carrie Rickey was born in L.A. around the time the Jennifer Jones/Laurence Olivier movie Carrie hit screens. Hence her name. Since then she's seen more than 12,000 films without losing her love of movies -- or wordplay. But don't envy her job too much. She has to sit through the likes of Battlefield Earth just so she can warn you not to.

Like many Danny Boyle movies, including 28 Days Later, Millions and Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours is an against-all-odds survival saga. Its ostensible subject is Aron Ralston, the outdoorsman trapped in a Utah canyon by a falling boulder that pinned his right hand and forearm to the red rock.
In Stone, an ambiguous film boasting a quartet of mesmerizing performances, Robert De Niro and Edward Norton are inscrutable antagonists in what appears to be a high-stakes game of liars' poker.
