Fantastic Mr. Fox

Fantastic Mr. Fox is as clever and witty as any film for kids (and possibly even adults) that I've seen all year. The one question is who will enjoy it more, you or your kids?

Pick of the Week

Invictus

Always terrific to watch Morgan Freeman in action and I certainly miss him in his role as Alex Cross. Morgan is magical as Nelson Mandela and the film somehow manages to be both understated and uplifting. This isn't Clint Eastwood's best film (not for me anyway), but it might be his most important one.

Everybody's Fine

Well done, tightly constructed, with good acting. However the story was a little too familiar and predictable for me. Still, it says true things about the role many of our fathers played in our lives.
