Irrational Man review

Don't bother with Woody's offering this year - it's far from his best. This one is full of reheated ideas that have blessed better efforts from him in the past.

Gangster Squad review (Blu-ray)

The Amazing Spider-Man review

An unnecessary reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man is more average than awesome; more "meh" than "woo hoo". Not that it's a bad film, far from it.

Excellent

The Help review

Writer-director Taylor is friends with author Kathryn Stockett, whose best-selling novel this movie is based upon. She apparently helped him secure the gig. Good for him.
