Skillful, well-acted character study. Have a gander.
A Single Man

Rating: 5
Easy on the eyes, undemanding on the mind. Meet and greet.
The Book of Eli
Review Date: February 3, 2010
Rating: 8
Denzel Washington, playing off a smartly ambiguous script, elevates a great-looking Hughes Brothers B-movie. Open it.

The Wolfman
Review Date: February 9, 2010
Rating: 8
Fine remake of the classic horror film. Take a bite.
Shutter Island
Review Date: February 20, 2010

Visually striking exploration of madness and paranoia. Come for a tour.
Green Zone
Review Date: March 15, 2010
Rating: 8
Gritty action thriller, half Bourne, half political mystery, topped with a final fantastic twist. Not to be missed.
The Ghost Writer
Review Date: March 19, 2010
Rating: 7
Excellent suspense thriller and an elaborate joke at Tony Blair’s expense. Be intrigued.
Repo Men
Review Date: March 21, 2010
Rating: 9
More spray-and-pray than surgical strike, but what a gem this is nonetheless. Join the squad.

Hot Tub Time Machine
Review Date: March 29, 2010
Rating: 9
Hilarious comedy teeming with possibilities, all expertly managed by director Pink and a stellar cast. Slip in.

Clash of The Titans
Review Date: April 2, 2010
Shoddy and badly written version of a B-movie classic that didn’t need a remake in the first place. Don’t myth out.
Review Date: April 4, 2010
Funny, realistic, and (mostly) tough-minded comedy about a New Yorker rediscovering life in L.A. Well worth a look.

Iron Man 2

As good as the first. Iron Man is a superhero truly representative of our age. Suit up.
