Get Low

A terrific story, beautifully shot, with flawless acting by Robert Duvall, Bill Murray and others. I can't imagine too many people over 30 not liking it.

Nanny McPhee Returns

An absolutely delightful children's film for the first half; a so-so children's film for the second half. Maybe you and the kids should leave after an hour.

Animal Kingdom

Australian film about a crime family in Sydney. Well told, solid performances. Builds tension slowly, which might turn off some people.

Takers

Lots of action, but unfortunately nobody to care about. Idris Elba is great—obviously—but his talents are pretty much wasted here.

The American

A director's wet dream, it's about a supposedly top-notch assassin who consistently makes really dumb decisions. Slow-moving, but I liked it! Must be George Clooney.
