He’s Just Not That Into You (2009)
If Love Actually is the superstar child resulting from the marriage of the romantic comedy and ensemble film genres, then He’s Just Not That Into You is the sad little sibling who shouldn’t be allowed out at family functions.    Love Actually has complex, well-rounded characters and rich, rewarding story lines.  He’s Just Not That Into You… doesn’t.   The film is the cinematic demonstration of the philosophy presented in the self-help book of the same name by comedian Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo.  It is a simple philosophy: Women (and the occasional token man) cannot get it into their thick heads when guys (and the occasional token gal) are not interested in them.  When I first heard this film was in the works, I was curious to see how exactly two screenwriters (Abby Kohn & Marc Silverstein) and a director (Ken ...

Coraline (2009)
Have you ever felt bored with your life? Perhaps your friends and family neglect you, or take you for granted. Have you ever wanted to escape, to be free, to be loved above all else? Is that a glimmer of hope I see in your youthful eyes, sparked at the chance to escape humdrum mediocrity for good?That’s what things were like for Coraline Jones (Dakota Fanning). Having moved away from her friends so her parents (Teri Hatcher and John Hodgman) could write books about gardening, despite both of them hating to be out in the dirt and mud, Coraline found herself adrift and alone. She tries to find company with the other denizens of her building. There’s Miss Spink and Miss Forcible (Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French), aging thespians who spend their time tending to their many dogs. There’s Mr. ...

Taken (2008)
“I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you. I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.”-Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson)I love Luc Besson. Sure, not everything he touches turns to gold, but when it comes to action, he is one of the world’s leading lights. Granted, he hasn’t directed an action film since 1997’s The Fifth Element, but ...

Milk (2008)
Milk is based on the true story of the activism and political efforts of San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk in the 1970s. The film follows Milk (played by Sean Penn) as he evolves from a bright spirited businessman, to a neighborhood activist with a drive for success, to the leader of the most potent homosexual movement in the United States. While his rise to become the first openly gay man to be voted to public office was not a smooth one, he handled every challenge that came to him with poise, vision and intelligence.Harvey Milk had moved to San Francisco to start a camera store with his partner, Scott Smith (played by James Franco). However, upon the day they first open for business, they get a crude reaction from a member of the surrounding business association, who does not approve ...

Doubt (2008)
"I will step outside the church if that's what needs to be done, till the door should shut behind me! I will do what needs to be done, though I'm damned to Hell! You should understand that, or you will mistake me." -Sister Aloysius Beauvier (Meryl Streep) Doubt, the film based on John Patrick Shanley's Pulitzer Prize winning play, feels more like Oscar-bait than anything else I've seen this year. That's not to say it doesn't have its moments, simply that Shanley, who also wrote the screenplay and directed the adaptation, plays things to the rafters in an attempt to get the Oscar voters' attention.The movie centers around three people at a Catholic school in the early 1960's. Sister Aloysius (Meryl Streep), rules the school with an iron fist. The students all fear her, which is how she likes it. She ...
