5/10 80% Grey's Anatomy: Season 6 (TV, 2009-2010) "Most of these characters were merely changing back to what they were several seasons ago. This is not a good thing and it's not meant to be, for them, at least. Frankly, it's even worse for us. " ‐ PopMatters

6/10 88% Adventureland (2009) "Adventureland is as tidy and predictable as it sounds. And it falls into that annoying trap that seems to plague this sort of film, relying on an unrelenting '80s soundtrack to set tones and cue plot points. " ‐ PopMatters
Posted Apr 7, 2009

Posted Mar 15, 2009
6/10 40% He's Just Not That Into You (2009) "He's Just Not That Into You is a standard chick flick, which isn't necessarily a bad thing: it's cute and comic and organized according to fixed, mostly ancient gender roles. " ‐ PopMatters
