QUOTES
Not Easily Broken - Entertaining
Taken - Adrenaline-pumping.
Coraline - A visual marvel!
I Love You, Man - I Love You, Man is one bromantic joy ride.
Sin Nombre - ****! An epic, edge-of-the-seat thriller!
Sunshine Cleaning - Emily Blunt deftly combines a sly sense of humor with a brusque but endearing honesty.
State of Play - Intelligent and engrossing. Several high-caliber performances give the film its vibrancy.
Earth - Breathtaking.
The Soloist - The power of The Soloist comes down to the two superb lead performances.
Obsessed - Great-looking actors, glossy locations and a knock-down, drag-out girlfight...
X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Exhilarating. Wolverine is well-acted, with spectacular action and witty one-liners. Although it’s a quintessential popcorn movie, Wolverine is not mindless. Director Gavin Hood and Hugh Jackman bring depth to a comic-book tale of anti-heroes with anger issues. Jackman invests his fierce character with…clear-eyed intelligence and inherent decency, compelling viewers to care about his metamorphosis.
Star Trek - Star Trek delivers. Energetic. Spectacular action.
Rudo y Cursi - An undeniably entertaining rags-to-riches comedy!
The Brothers Bloom - Has it all: charming romance, jaunty adventure story, witty dialogue, gorgeous cinematography and superb performances.
The Boys - Fascinating and moving.
Easy Virtue - A pleasure to watch! Firth is excellent! Thomas plays the imperious matriarch to perfection!
Away We Go - Witty, sharply observed and emotionally satisfying! John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph have terrific chemistry – they are one of the most appealing and believable screen couples to star in a romantic comedy. Maggie Gyllenhaal and Allison Janney give hilarious performances.
The Hangover - Absurdly funny. A side-splitting adventure you’ll still be laughing about the morning after.
Moon - Intelligent! Evocative!
Cheri - A decadent comedy of manners. A feather-light confection that flouts the rules, pushes sexual boundaries and stumbles onto something of substance under all the flirtation and fun.
The Stoning of Soraya M. - Emotionally explosive…Profoundly compelling. Oscar nominee Aghdashloo is terrific.
My Sister’s Keeper - Abigail Breslin and Sofia Vassilieva are terrific.
Public Enemies - An action film that feels like an epic. A welcome adult alternative to summer’s sophomoric blockbusters.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - Captivating from the first frame. Epic and spellbinding.
(500) Days of Summer - It’s hard to imagine a more delightful, witty, well-acted and inventive comedy hitting screens this year.
Shrink - Engrosing…Spacey’s best performances since Swimming with Sharks
Funny People - Judd Apatow’s most ambitious and personal work to date…sublime.
Julia & Julia - Enchanting! Julie & Julia is spiced with humor and affection. The experience is well worth relishing.
District 9 - Spectacular!
It Might Get Loud - A pleasure to watch! You don’t have to be a musician to appreciate it!
Inglourious Basterds - Pure exhilaration! Riveting, glorious and powerful!
Taking Woodstock - Director Ang Lee vibrantly captures the era!
Extract - Jason Bateman is perfect.
The Informant - Damon is superb.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - Appealing family fare worth relishing.
Bright Star - Bright Star is a thing of beauty.
Capitalism: A Love Story - Capitalism: A Love Story is impassioned, informative and entertaining...
The Boys Are Back - ***1/2 Clive Owen gives an Oscar-worthy performance. A lovely and emotionally resonant film. Clive Owen is masterful.
Coco Before Chanel - A visual delight!
The Invention of Lying - Flat-out hilarious.
The Damned United - Sheen's performance is superb!
The Fourth Kind - You don't have to believe in alien abductions to get caught up in The Fourth Kind.
The Road - ***1/2! Life-affirming!
