MY SISTER’S KEEPER

June 28th, 2009

MY SISTER’S KEEPER is another stunning acting triumph for the mature beyond her years Abigail Breslin. Also commendable in an acting stretch is Cameron Diaz who plays Sara Fitzgerald, an iron willed mother who abandons her successful law career to devote full time care to her oldest child Kate after her diagnosis of leukemia at a very young age. Kate has survived at least 10 years longer than ...

WHATEVER WORKS

June 28th, 2009

WHATEVER WORKS is a cliché that often concludes an erudite tirade by sixty something New Yorker Boris Yellnikoff (Larry David) which is ironic since he has nothing but contempt for anything cliché. We find this out when the cranky curmudgeon in a weak moment allows Melodie St. Ann Celestine (Evan Rachel Wood) a destitute southern woman, sanctuary in his loft and ends up mentoring her. Althoug ...

CHERI

June 28th, 2009

CHERI is the pet name of the character played by Rupert Friend, a foppish early 20th century spoiled late teen. He is so named by his mother’s friend Lea de Lonval (Michelle Pfeiffer). Both women know each other from long gone days in the theatre. Both now keep themselves in the manner to which they have become accustomed by manipulating the stock market although their venture capital came fr ...

THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE

June 28th, 2009

THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE is the latest Steven Soderbergh film about a high end call girl whose claim to fame is offering not just sex but the true experience of having a girlfriend even if it is one of fantasy and not reality. Ironically many of her clientele complain about being hamstrung by the economic downturn but still have funds to pay for her service. Her name is Chelsea (crossover ad ...

LITTLE ASHES

June 28th, 2009

LITTLE ASHES is an obscure line from an obscure poem that adds even more confusion to this befuddled movie. Current Twilight heart throb Robert Pattinson is not quite up to the stretch of playing Spanish surrealist Salvador Dalí. Although his is the most famous character portrayed he turns out not to be the central character. The focal point turns out to be Federico García Lorca (Javier Beltr ...

THE PROPOSAL

June 22nd, 2009

THE PROPOSAL has Vancouver’s Ryan Reynolds in yet another romantic comedy this time teamed up with the queen of romantic comedy, Sandra Bullock. Their keen comic timing works well off one another for the first half of this generally well written and for the most part well paced story. Bullock as Margaret Tate is the boss from hell who has cracked New York’s glass ceiling as a shaker at a larg ...

YEAR ONE

June 22nd, 2009

YEAR ONE is a biblical spoof about Zed (Jack Black) and Oh (Canada’s Michael Cera), two ancient hunter-gatherers (trades that neither excel in) who are banished from their tribe only to step into the pages of Genesis. As they slip in and out of slavery they have comedic run-ins with Abraham (Hank Azaria) and his son Isaac (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) as well and Abel (Paul Rudd) and his sleazy ...

SUMMER HOURS

June 22nd, 2009

SUMMER HOURS. Those lazy, hazy memories that we are most nostalgic about usually spent at a perennial retreat at that time of the year when the living is easy. For one French Family in this well made movie it’s the country estate of the brood’s matriarch Hélène (Edith Scob) who inherited the house and it’s collection of art treasures and priceless furniture from a favourite uncle. Hélène is t ...
