1.5/4
The unfortunate combination of a hackneyed script and inexperienced acting makes the film feel like the big-budget version of a bad high-school play.

3/4
A hall-of-mirrors investigation of extraordinary talent, emotionally stunted personality, a performer's process, and the cruel mistress of celebrity...but it also serves as a powerful performance version of a last will and testament.

What Astro Boy has in spades are energy, good humor, and the demolition-derby action of a superhero smash-up, reasons enough to recommend it to grade-school boys.

'It's going to get Biblical!'...sets new standards of lunatic plotting as it goes about its smiting.

Sets thoughts swirling about three bitch-goddesses: the teenage variety (namely Megan Fox's Jennifer), "success" in the commercial cinema, and that fickle mistress called hype.

Love Happens (2009)
Pure Hollywood hokum, with plotting that's practically impossible...graceless product placement, cutesy situations, and neatly tied bows.

[A] sideways glance at the electric guitar by way of profiling three generations of guitarists: Jack White of The White Stripes, the Edge of U2, and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin.

An amusing, cynical black comedy about our national addiction to tragedy, and our commoditization of grief...

Extract (2009)
Bateman reliably tickles in his signature role of a square who can't catch a break, and Wiig once more delivers subtly funny character work in a tricky role.

Just creative enough to keep kids glazed over with nominal interest, but it won't challenge them much...

Ponyo (2009)
Wondrous, weird, and sweetly innocent, Ponyo is a tale bursting with love, which is recommendation enough for the young and the young at heart.

The Cove (2009)
Informative, exciting, and surprisingly emotional...its goal is to alert the world to the abuse and consumption of dolphins.

Funny People (2009)
A newer, more mature chapter in the Apatow book and I like what I see.
