Brüno (2009)
Borat is back. Except this time he's named Bruno, and he's flamboyantly homosexual. OK, so it's not really Borat, but rather yet another character from comic anarchist Sacha Baron Cohen. While his breakout film was Borat, the shocking and hilarious tale of a fictional Kazakhstan visitor to America, the character actually originated on Cohen's UK television show, Da Ali G Show. In fact, Baron Cohen had previously made a feature, Ali G Indahouse, that starred the titular gangsta wannabe. And Bruno was the other mainstay of that now cult classic show. An outrageous Austrian fashionista with no real depth, Bruno is as outlandish as Borat was innocent. But it's that minor difference that makes for a major change in the way the two movies feel. A superstar in the European fashion world (including every German-speaking country...except Germany), Bruno has front row ...

Public Enemies (2009)
"I like baseball, movies, good clothes, fast cars...and you. What else do you need to know?"John Dillinger (Johnny Depp)I’m not going to lie. I never thought robbing banks would be so boring. When I heard that Michael Mann (director of Miami Vice, Collateral, and the classic crime drama Heat) was going to be making a film about infamous criminal John Dillinger, with perpetual chameleon Johnny Depp in the role, I was psyched. When I heard that Christian Bale would be playing Melvin Purvis, the FBI agent who hunted Dillinger, I was ecstatic. Sure, the footage looked a little rough, due to the choice of shooting on digital cameras, but what the hell, there’s no way it could really be bad.As mentioned, Johnny Depp plays John Dillinger, one of the most notorious bank robbers in the history of the United States. ...

Hurt Locker, The (2009)
The conventional wisdom of the day says that Iraq War movies can’t succeed until the troops come home.  Hollywood spit them out anyway and one by one, down they went. Anything that mentioned Blackwater, Basra or the Green Zone was box office poison.  “See?” they said.  Folks have war fatigue. They don’t want to escape to the movies only to see the misery they can find at home on CNN.  Well.  The conventional wisdom is about to be smashed to pieces because The Hurt Locker is an excellent use of celluloid and people are going to want to see this thing.The film opens with a quote by journalist/author Chris Hedges that ends with these four words: war is a drug.  Like any drug, some succumb to its seductions, some can take it or leave it and some, after one taste, ...

Proposal, The (2009)
I have a proposal for you.  I’ll give you, say, twelve of my hard earned dollars and two hours of my time.  I’ll even let you try and sell me a car and some soda pop before we get down to business.  All I ask for in return is some fresh romantic comedy entertainment – a storyline that hasn’t been sewn from the scraps of ones that came before it (and that isn’t based on a lie or misunderstanding – I am SO over that), two affable main characters with chemistry that makes me root for them to be together and some clever bits along the way.  Why is it so FREAKING hard for you to hold up your end of this bargain???The creators of The Proposal came through for us on only one of these counts.  With two lesser ...

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)
When Michael Bay was brought on to direct a live action rendition of the beloved Saturday morning cartoon Transformers, emotions ran high among the series' fans. Bay is a divisive director and many felt he couldn't pull it off. When design sketches from a production laptop were leaked, people really went nuts. They couldn't believe the changes that Bay was making to the franchise they grew up with. Optimus had flames on his side when in truck form? Megatron looking like Treebeard? What the heck was Bay up to? Of course, as we all now know, Transformers turned out to be a really fun movie. It wasn't perfect (why on Earth was Anthony Anderson in there?), but it was a surprisingly good time at the movies. Since then, co-writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman were hired to pen J.J. Abrams' reboot ...
