Incendies &
Everything Must Go

These are two "art" films. And they couldn't be more different. Incendies is an epic story about what can happen to people in other parts of the world—things that most of us can't even imagine. Everything Must Go is a small story, the kind of trivial situation that we Americans preoccupy ourselves with.

X-Men: First Class

Loved the first half or so and then it just (for me anyway) turned into a somewhat more typical comic-book genre flick. But the first half is definitely full of cleverness, with echoes of the James Bond movies.

The Double Hour

Subtitles. This is a very engaging, twisty story, but it uses one trick that's absolutely verboten in the thriller business. Still, it's worth seeing, if you can find it.

Super 8

Stand By Me meets Close Encounters meets The Predator. Jack and I absolutely loved the kid dialog (Stand By Me). The rest of the story was a little predictable. It's one of those tales in which strange things are happening and you hope that the reveal is surprising and satisfying. It isn't. Still, the movie's set-up is worth the price of admission.
