Pick of the Week

Anonymous

A curiosity about Shakespeare is that even though there are hundreds of books about him, virtually nothing is actually known about the man. We know he was born. We know he had a wife and daughter. And that's about it. Shakespeare scholars are up in arms because this film makes the claim he didn't write any of the plays. That's an interesting what-if proposition for a mystery, but ultimately we'll never know. And, from my point of view, who cares. The plays are great no matter who wrote them.

The movie even goes a step further, and portrays Shakespeare as a drunken lout who never learned to write his own name. There's no way this could be substantiated on an historical basis, either. So, all that to say, everybody's full of baloney—the scholars and the movie-makers.

The film itself? You won't be bored.

Pick of the Week

Johnny English Reborn

You need to have a British sense of humor but this James Bond spoof is pretty good. It 's hugely popular in England, of course, and also around the world. Not here, however. Shame on you, Yanks!

In Time

Kind of a cool premise. The acting is just fine. Otherwise the execution isn't nearly as good as the idea.
