Rating what's out now on DVD
The raunchiest stuffed bear you'll ever meet. Clever, funny, romantic, poignant...what more do you want?
Grade: B +
SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD
I was surprised at how good this was for a film that received very little hype.
What happens when some really dumb rednecks hatch a murder plot to collect insurance money. Fascinating, like a train wreck.
Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones ans Steve Carell. Notable because Carell plays it straight throughout the entire film!
Grade : B
TO ROME WITH LOVE
Woody Allen seems headed into Fellini territory with this one...still a fun ride.
Writer creates his own girlfriend...do-it-yourselfers oughta like this one.
TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY
Espionage and the games big boys play. Follow along and you'll be fine.
Grade: B -
It's fun to watch Richard Gere in his manic phase, which seems to be the whole movie.
Teen superheroes...I haven't completely grown out of that phase.
Sci-fi with some great CGI.
Grade: C +
Mildly entertaining vehicle for Hanks/Roberts.
BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD
Five year-old girl waxes philosophical about the web of life and everything being connected, then beats a fish to death with a hammer. WTF? If violent drunks are your heroes, you'll love it.
