How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Pretty good, even though it feels the strain of being a half-hour cartoon trapped in a 2-hour movie. Jim Carrey is, of course, very funny.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

File this under "better than it sounds." Instead of worrying too much about it's moral or about its kinda-sorta love story, here is a move that dials the silly up to 11. The characters are endearing and stay that way as the movie gets goofier and goofier. The corners of every shot are filled with little visual gags, the majority of which aren't easy pop culture references. Definitely recommended.

It's clear where the effort went in creating this movie; the design and animation. In that sense, it's one of the most exciting movies of the year. Unfortunately, the story and characters are both very lazy, and in the end we are left with a movie that feels like a missed opportunity. Too bad.

It Might Get Loud

If you are like me, and you really love the music of these guitarists, then you should check this out. Jack White, The Edge, and Jimmy Page have all done worlds for their generation of rock music, and comparing and contrasting their approach to guitar work is fascinating. It won't work well for people who don't care about this kind of thing, but I found it engaging and inspiring in it's conviction.

I can see the writing sessions for this movie now. Each scene is written based on how much it will further derail and complicate the plot, with little regard for how it will actually resolve. If that's your bag, check it out. This is my bag, and I liked it well enough. It's not the comedic masterpiece that "Raising Arizona" or "O Brother Where Art Thou?" is, but the story and dialogue are very funny when you take a moment to step back and think about it.
