3.15 Cedar Rapids
2.12 Welcome to the Rileys (DVD)
3.5 Robin Hood (DVD) Really, a pretty good movie, much better than the tepid reception it received when it appeared would have suggested. Often fresh (but sometimes cliched), usually intelligent (but occasionally veering into Hollywoodisms), the movie could have been better. I would have liked to have seen more between Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett. And I would have liked to have seen more talk about challenging the king, and less speechifying. Sometimes you get the impression that Ridley Scott gets bored with thinking and says `Let’s get on with it,’ and therefore falls short of what could be really brilliant movies.
3.4 The Prince of Persia (DVD) Imagine a movie so terrible that it makes Gemma Arterton look unattractive.
3.3 Dinner for Schmucks (DVD)
2.26 Catfish (DVD) As William Saletan wrote the other day, “Humanity is migrating to cyberspace.” In the past, people would go west and invent a new identity. This woman did it on Facebook.
2.24 Red (DVD)
2.12 The American (DVD)
2.12 Down Terrace (DVD)
1.30 The Company Men
1.26 Knight and Day (DVD) Who was responsible for making this drab, charmless film a summer tentpole flick?
1.26 Salt (DVD) The alternate versions are different movies to the same end: an above-average thriller that didn’t know how to come to an end
1.21 The Fighter
1.20 The Conspirator
1.14 The Other Guys (DVD) Will Ferrel‘s appeal continues to elude me.
1.8 The Way Back
1.8 Friday Night Lights, Season 4
1.6 Friday Night Lights, Season 3
1.4 Friday Night Lights, Season 2
1.2 Friday Night Lights, Season 1

Jerusalem

2010 MOVIES AND DVD (41/32)
12.25 True Grit “Keep your seat, trash.”
12.14 Public Speaking One cannot underestimate the skill required in speaking so fluidly and fluently, but on the while, Fran Lebowitz is overrated as a wit.
12.14 The Next Three Days Another excellent performance by Russell Crowe, but what has happened to his ability to find iconic roles?
12.10 The King’s Speech
12.5 Legion (DVD)
12.4 The Best Man (DVD)
11.25 Morning Glory
11.23 Unstoppable
11.18 Client 9
