Pick of the Week

Real Steel

This is actually a pretty cool movie for most kids—depending on whether parents want them to watch robots boxing. A little saccharine but still a nice couple of hours with the kids—the boys anyway.

Pick of the Week

The Hedgehog

You have to get past an 11-year-old who talks and thinks like a college professor, and who is planning to kill herself. And yet, this is the best movie I saw this weekend. (Subtitle alert! French alert!)

The Ides of March

Jack, at thirteen, is a dedicated politico, so we all had to go see this one. I think we found it a little slow, a little coy, but still a decent flick.

Footloose

Sort of fun to watch but(!) man, can you feel the producers carefully, methodically, pushing every possible button—don't offend the Christians, reach out to the African Americans, let's get to everybody who remembers the original movie, and everybody who doesn't.

The Big Year

A bomb at the box office, but it's kind of diverting and sweet. Kudos to the director for keeping Jack Black and Owen Wilson nicely in check.
