Valentino: The Last Emperor

Valentino is an unbelievable character with a huge ego and obvious talents—all of which makes this documentary an eyeful & an earful.

The Brothers Bloom

I loved this movie until it started it going on and on, and also started to take itself too seriously. For the first hour and a half it's a clever, funny well-directed, and well-acted film about con jobs, but then, for me, it fell apart. The real con job here–and this happens all the time in Hollywood–was done on the film's investors.

Drag Me to Hell

This is a B movie with an A movie budget. It looks good, it's well directed, but ultimately this is a story that could have been on The Twilight Zone.

Angels & Demons

It should be obvious that I like preposterous stories—up to a point. Angels & Demons will really test your willingness to suspend your disbelief. And still—the last half is exciting. And the final ten minutes are quite satisfying.

Management

Jennifer Aniston is terrific in this one, her best since The Good Girl. The movie is flawed—in my eyes—because the first half is a somewhat droll, realistic comedy, while the second half is manic farce. I'm kind of a big fan of organic unity myself.

Terminator Salvation

Too many angry machines with nothing interesting to say. Give me the Governator.

Rudo y Cursi

When this story stays down to earth and deals with the realities of life in Mexico it's quite charming, but when it goes Hollywood at times it loses a lot. Clichés are clichés whether they're in English or Spanish.

Star Trek

[addendum to original review] Jack, our 11-year-old, liked it very much. Said it was great, an adjective he rarely uses.
