 Clash of the Titans (2010)
Greek tragedy was a form of drama (in point of fact, the first form of drama), in which a man is undone through his hubris, a specific form of pride that defies the gods or fate (or both). Almost all of the famous Greek myths revolve around this idea. No one avoids fate. Oedipus, despite everyone's attempts to the contrary, really does kill his father and marry his mother. Achilles' humiliation of Hector at Troy echoes his own fall along with the city under siege. And not even Perseus, son of Zeus, could escape the words of the Oracle. These things prove that Clash of the Titans is a quintessentially American tale, using elements of Greek mythology to tell a tale of independence at all costs.Clash of the Titans (the name itself is a misnomer; Titans were a separate mythological ...

How To Train Your Dragon (2010)
There is no question in my mind that How To Train Your Dragon is easily Dreamworks' best animated attempt to date. In fact, it's so much better than any of their previous outings that I hate to compare it to such drivel as Shrek or A Shark's Tale. Even their best release up to this point, Kung Fu Panda is so much less than Dragon that it's hard to believe they're both from the same company. While it doesn't hit the heights of Toy Story 2, Wall-E, or Ratatouille, How To Train Your Dragon is the first Dreamworks animated movie that could legitimately stand up against such enjoyable pictures as Cars, A Bug's Life, or even other non-Disney/Pixar flicks like Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs.Jay Baruchel lends his unmistakable voice to Hiccup, a decidedly un-viking like young man who, ...

Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)
Everyone has that period in their lives where they feel unstoppable, unbeatable, on top of the world. Such times don't last forever, and as we make our inevitable trudge towards middle age, it can often seem like we've been left behind by life. I'm sure every one of us has looked back and questioned the decisions that led us to where we are today. If we could change them, not knowing what the effects might be, would we?Perhaps we would if were living the life of Nick (Craig Robinson). Once a promising singer, Nick now spends his days clearing out the intestinal tracks of pocket dogs. He also has two down on their luck friends, Adam (John Cusack), and Lou (Rob Cordry). After Lou almost kills himself in his garage while listening to Motley Crue, the group, along with Adam's ...

Avatar (2009)
I should probably get this out of the way up front: James Cameron has done it again. He's made a movie of great visual splendor that doesn't lose sight of the story or characters. Avatar is without a doubt the most beautiful and breathtaking film you will see all year (and, this late in the game, I can probably amend all decade to that statement as well). The real genius is that it's also one of the best of the year overall.Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), a cripple from the waist down, agrees to take his dead twin brother's place in a program on the dangerous world of Pandora. The reason people even bother to go there is because of rich mineral deposits that cannot be found on Earth. It turns out he is taking part in an "avatar" program, where ...

 Invictus (2009)
Sometimes you know when you're seeing history unfold before your eyes. Even though I was very young, I can still remember seeing the fall of the Berlin Wall, and of course 9/11 and Barack Obama winning the presidency of the United States. But before Obama, there was Nelson Mandela. A civil rights activist in South Africa who was jailed for subversive activities by the Apartheid National Government, Mandela was later freed from imprisonment and managed to become the president of South Africa once all races were allowed to vote equally. Mandela is considered one of the elder statesman of human rights causes, and his name is often uttered in the same breath as Mahatma Gandhi.Invictus is about Nelson Mandela. But it's not about his early life as an activist, or his time in prison, or even his campaign to get ...
