Intense, confusing, and hard to see the damned point.

So, I guess it's probably very much like real war.

Seeing that it took five people to write the movie, it's a good guess that it's not going to be exactly good-- and in fact, while loud & fast-cut, it feels extremely plodding and long.

The good news is that I was right in my prediction that Hayden "Another Sign of a Bad Movie" Christensen's character would be the first to die.

The Tillman Story

We finally get an inside look at Pat Tillman's family, and how they fought to get at the truth of the military/government coverup that turned his friendly-fire death into an epic Fox News myth.

The movie is well-put together, with my only frustration being that of watching key players blatantly lie and walk away with smirks on their faces.

The Other Guys

The film that deftly juggles being funnier than could have been expected, sporadically funny, and not all that funny at all.

SamJack & The Rock have too little screentime, Marky Mark is ill-suited in his role, and Doofus is just a drag.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Visually stunning and hilarious from the very first moments-- and I mean IMMEDIATELY, & all the way up until the end.

I left wanting not only to read the entire manga series, but also to sit in front of the movie theater door, waiting for the sequel to arrive.

The Extra Man

It's billing itself as "a sexless new comedy," and while that's pretty much true, it somehow still manages to be oddly kinky.

It's also quietly very funny-- very much funnier than most so-called comedies.

Inception is getting the attention, but this is by far the more exciting movie.

Probably the least predictable film I've seen so far this year.

Dinner for Schmucks

This movie came as a complete SHOCK in that it was actually very funny-- much funnier than I would have dared even imagine.

I've already put the French original (and the subsequent Hindi version) in my Netflix queue.

The Mouse That Soared

An orphaned mouse is adopted and raised by a pair of birds.

The Kids are Alright

Not sure what I thought of it--a little unpolished, a little predictable, a dissapointing ending--but it was ALRIGHT.

Not sure about casting Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, though (hope he'll be alright).
