She's Out of My League

A lot better than I thought it would be. Cute, and I like cute sometimes. But that's just me.

Green Zone

It just misses being a terrific movie. The big miss (for me) revolves around the problem of a Jason Bourne-like plot, trying to meld with important historical events. The film's craft is first rate, but the storytelling doesn't quite gel. Neither does all the shaky camera work in the dark. Still, this was close to being really good.

Brooklyn's Finest

This is Training Day meets Crash. Antoine Fuqua is a talented director but, for my seven dollars, this was a dreary way to spend a Sat night. I prefer my morality tales on Sunday morning, in church.

The Ghost Writer

Terrific filmmaking and acting but, for me, the screenwriter and director couldn't decide whether this should be a commercial thriller, or scary political commentary.
