Going The Distance (2010) If you look at the title, “Going The Distance” and think that it is a somewhat not-so-clever twist on a long distance relationship and a guy who can’t commit to a relationship then you would be right.  “Going The Distance” is a film about just that, and it doesn’t really pull it off. The film has a few hilarious moments, but overall, it leaves you estranged and longing for the film to end.  Again, this film fits in the column of near-perfect date movies.  Both men and women can find something to enjoy to barely get them through the film.  However, as a film and story it is lacking movement. “Going The Distance” takes us on a stale journey that has been covered many times before.  Somehow filmmakers thought that the real-life relationship of Justin Long and Drew Barrymore would make this ...

Flipped (2010) It has been a while since I have taken a look at anything other than sci-fi, fantasy and action, with the exception of “The Kids Are All Right.”  So, when “Flipped” landed in my lap I was quite pleased.  It promised to offer a much-needed break from the shoot ‘em up, bang ‘em up genres.  And thankfully, that promise was fulfilled. The film is nothing new, nor is it full of heavily emotional dramatic sequences.  However, the tale is heartwarming and somehow adds up to a pleasant movie experience.  Sure, there are moments in the film that drag on a bit too long, particularly due to the way in which the story is told.  More on that in a second.  However, those slow moments all build to a type of innocence and warmth. “Flipped” is told in a “her side,” “his side” ...

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2010) I know what you are thinking.  Scott Pilgrim, who?  What?  Yes, Scott Pilgrim is not a well known character.  The film is based on the graphic novel comic series by Bryan lee O'Malley.  The novels have been published over the course of the past six years, with the movie appearing before the last graphic novel installment. The film had limited success obviously due to the lack of marketing on the part of the studio.  We might have all seen a preview for the film once or twice but never really connected with the preview or what the film was supposed to be about.  Due to the nature of the film, its hodgepodge of material, the studio just didn't know what aspect to market to the public. "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" is somewhat a video gamer generation film.  However, there are so ...

When In Rome (2010) Yikes!  Snooze alert.  Cliché.  Trite.  Predictable.  You pick whichever word you like best.  This film is straight from a cookie cutter.  It ranks just a notch above the disastrous "Leap Year."  Normally I am all for romantic comedies, but this one just fails to capture much of an audience.  It is hindered by a sloppy premise, a second-rate script and unimaginative cinematography. "When In Rome" had some potential, particularly with Kristen Bell at the forefront.  Unfortunately, they had nothing to work with as the script was simply dull, with absolutely no hint of mystery.  Foreshadowing is a great feature in filmmaking, but it way too blatantly obvious in this film.  Subtlety is definitely the key with foreshadowing. Some of might have this film figured out from beginning to end before even putting it into your player.  The rest will likely have it ...

Valentine's Day (2010) "Valentine's Day" flew in and out of theaters in no time flat.  Blink and you would have missed it.  And it is no surprise why.  This film falls into all the traps of romantic comedies.  Sure, I know that there are only some many plots for romantic comedies, but it is the job of the screenwriters and filmmakers to put an original spin on it.  Unfortunately, that did not happen here. The film boasts a tremendous cast and that is about it.  The film relies on the big names in the film rather than the actual film.  This may be an intentional ploy as filmmakers realized the film would flop. I won't go into each and every character and cast member, but to sum up, there are no stellar performances here despite the caliber of the cast.  You can't help but cringe ...
