Sherlock Holmes

The ads for this movie proclaim that it's "nonstop action," "exhilarating," "funny," and "deftly written." Amazingly, the ads tell the truth. This is a comic book version of Sherlock Holmes, but a really nifty one. My only nitpick is that it has the standard Hollywood reliance on crazy-over-the-top plot to save the world. But this is a top drawer escapist movie.

Up in the Air

This movie is based on a novel, and it plays on the screen like a novel, a very good one. George Clooney plays a total prick who somehow manages to be charming and relatable. This is a really well done fable for these crazy times we live in.

It's Complicated

The audience absolutely loved this movie—and so did my wife, Sue. Matter of fact, so did I. I thought it was going to be funnier, but the story rings true and touches all the right buttons.
