New review of Salt. A fine installment in the action film genre. Set-up to be another Bourne franchise, time will tell if this Salt keeps well.
A new review of Black Swan.
A total thumbs-up for the contributed review, and … a thumbs-down for the film.
Want to experience an insightful insight into madness? Try Apocalypse Now, for example. As a superficial exposition, Black Swan offers a monotonic insight into this world.
Good performance(s), and not much more.
A review of The Kids Are All Right – the most unfunny comedy of the year! Good performances, weak story. Annette Bening was solid.
As Oscar season begins (nominations for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards are due out next week), we begin the annual season of reviews, pontification, dreams and complaints. To start: a review of a refreshing, successful and surprisingly enjoyable entry among the cadre of underwhelming 2010 films, “The Town“. Bravo!
ps. farewell Pete. You were always a joy to watch, and you are missed.
The 83rd Annual Academy Awards posters are available – www.oscars.org! This year, a number of versions are available online, either to order or print (the latter is a nice addition!). However, I must say I’m underwhelmed – no year (2011), Award number (83rd) – so the poster will be effectively meaningless in the years to come. Also, not a very inspiring design – a decline that continues from recent years. Having said that, I get the “official” poster every year, and so here it is:
Just in … James Franco and Anne Hathaway will co-host the 83rd Academy Awards on February 27, 2011. The press release from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science is at http://www.oscars.org/press/pressreleases/2010/20101129.html .
