Cool visuals/animation put to the poetry of Allen Ginsberg... but not much of a movie.

Casino Jack (2010)
Spacey plays Abramoff sliminess pretty well, then again it is Spacey playing a bad guy. I actually prefer the documentary about the same story, "Casino Jack and the United States of Money". And it's funny because the documentary will actually make this dramatic telling better because you know this man is for real. The "based on a true story" at the beginning just isn't enough for the astounding tale.

Conviction (2010)
Swank gives a presence of a made-for-TV movie from the 90s but the direction and supporting cast make up for it. Plus the editing helps make this not so conventional and predictable.

Cruise and Diaz seem like an obvious pairing at this point in their careers. They have fun chemistry and the comedy is there in parts where the action is the almost always.

The only thing new about this movie is the pairing otherwise the story is not fresh, the action isn't memorable and the characters are pretty cliche.

Essentially no dialogue from Vincent Gallo works because the action and cinematography make up for it and create a tense landscape of storytelling.

This sword-clinging, decapitating film is a nicely paced non-bloated epic-style actioner. Fassbender and Cunningham are in their element and the cinematography is noteworthy.

Fair Game (2010)
Naomi Watts is superb in the flat paced recounting of a real-life infuriating situation which came after a horrific event.
Sean Penn, eh.
Director Doug Liman shows his chops, he will later go on to direct better movies like "Edge of Tomorrow" and "American Made".

If you're looking for a lot of special effects and monsters you might be disappointed in this movie.
It takes a brilliant queue from 'Jaws' in how it conjures fear through the monsters' presence.

I put this on as background, to learn a bit here and there, but ended up being enormously surprised. It's a very well put-together documentary about a crazy epidemic concerning all of Australia and something the rest of the world can be weary of.

Benning is great in this and Ruffalo plays laid-back cool guy like no other... hell the casting was solid all around... except for Julianne Moore. Once again she ruins the chance for a movie to be great.

Why do people like her? I can't believe any of her acting!

Gorgeous animation makes this a pleasure to watch. I will admit, it was a little tough following the characters, as they are owls and that's, well, different. This tells me a second viewing might prove this to be an even better movie...
