Pick of the Week

The King's Speech

Very British and very good. Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush's performances are not to be missed.

Pick of the Week

True Grit

I was a little disappointed, but I still found this to be terrific storytelling combined with first rate craft. The ensemble of Bridges, Damon, Brolin and Hailee Steinfeld (who plays Mattie Ross) is hard to beat.

Black Swan

Natalie Portman is absolutely terrific. That's all I'm going to say.

Little Fockers

This started out as a terrific comedy series but it's lost a lot of its edge. Stiller and De Niro are still plenty good (and I forgive Robert for his parody of me on Saturday Night Live).

127 Hours

When this flick began there were 7 of us in the theater. Twenty minutes later, I was the only courageous one still there. Somehow the idea of spending the next hour waiting for an amputation without any anesthesia didn't seem like the best way to spend my afternoon. I bolted as well.

Season of the Witch

Watchable, but kind of goofy and I have no idea what the audience for this film was supposed to be. Several scenes just didn't work.
