Appropriately unhesitant, The Meaning of Life is funny and philosophically insightful even though it doesn't necessarily measure up to the success of The Holy Grail. It is very interesting in how effectively the change of style occurs throughout the differing settings of the film.
Captain America 2 is surely one of the better instalments to the Marvel Avengers franchise. It is a smooth, solid storyline packed with exciting action pieces that, although shot shakily, play with its characters to a fitting degree. The themes are focused on bringing out key elements to its lead characters although the film is talkier than its partners.
About Schmidt is heartfelt and often sad but has a poignant storyline that is touching and even simple at times. The drama is pure and Nicholson turns in a fine performance as a man in search for purpose.
