Julie & Julia (2009) It's Nora Ephron! It's Amy Adams! It's Meryl Streep! Very good master of the obvious, action junkie 35 year-old kiddie - you have described the movie's "chick lineage" accurately and succinctly. Now go back to your buffo wings and let the adults talk.

All About Steve (Weekly Pick) (2009) -

FLiXER Review Poster Image (February 23, 2010 - 3:26pm)
Licensed To Wed writer Kim Barker gets another shot at comedy. A yarn about Sandra Bullock, a wacky 40s crossword puzzle constructor (aka the morning confounder) who falls in love with a news cameraman, Bradley Cooper. A fill in the squares type of movie. Black and white. Diagonal logic. You get the picture - 4 down. Cooper is hot off his debauched hit The Hangover, and Bullock is proving you can still be cute in your 40s even with too much make-up. Rocky Faulkner, I hope it was supposed to look that way, or since you've done a lot of special effects make-up, maybe it was all a thick...

Amelia (2009) -

FLiXER Review Poster Image (February 11, 2010 - 4:19pm)
A Mira Nair Movie. Yeah, two Mira Nair movies in a weekly pick row and I still don't know who she be. Good thing she put that card in the movie, lest we forget, it's not about the movie, it's about Mira Nair. Amelia is the original fly-girl. Easy I know, but really true. She had the spunk and grit to conquer nations and...the sky. And with equipment equivalent to riding down the 5 freeway with a go-kart. This was no balloon girl, this was an awakening of female independence and determination. This was, for all intensive purposes, the beginning of the gender war, which may, or may not, be over...

superman Blog Image - FLiXER
Emma Stone may have taken the Easy A route to Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man (reboot), but there is one part that may be more... resilient than it seems. She's sat in the background watching and waiting for her spotlight and I think now's the time. Elizabeth Brant. Betty to her friends and there are many. Some have rumored Zooey Descahanel, and others pine for Elizabeth Banks who's already had the forgotten part in the previous Spider-Man movies. But whom ever gets it, keep in mind, Betty is no push-over. As a tough girl from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Betty has the goods. She's smart and savvy,...

Funny People (2009) Ya know, what I really want to do is direct...you...to Adam, but it's only in 4 theaters to start due to some intern at Fox Searchlight who thought there were only 300 people in the US. M stands for million, not monkeys...well, maybe it could stand for monkeys in this case, but all in all, love the decimal buddy...be...the decimal.
