The Bourne Legacy.  While Bourne to Run could serve as an alternate title, Bourne to Be Bad would be a better description of the film.

Premium Rush.  One gear, no brakes–just straight ahead, no-nonsense action at top speed.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.  The only vendetta Nicolas Cage seems to have is one against the audience.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.  Flagrant Oscar Bait?  Or quirk run amok?

We Bought a Zoo.   It’s Elizabethtown with animals, which means it’s well-meaning, a little too nice, and has a sentimental screenplay propped up by a handful of clever story moments.

The Adventures of Tintin.  Andy Serkis not only brought Gollum to life on the movie screen, but also King Kong and Caesar the super-intelligent ape.  What seems to be beyond Mr. Serkis and an army of CGI technicians is a believable human being.

Contraband.  Forget about drugs and counterfeit money.  Can we start smuggling good screenplays into the country?

Cinema Misfits Podcast, Episode 30: The Fighter, Winter’s Bone, The Kids Are All Right, and 127 Hours

The Fighter.  Both Christian Bale and Melissa Leo won Oscars for their supporting roles.  Although it isn’t exactly clear who they’re supporting, it doesn’t seem to be Mark Wahlberg.

Winter’s Bone.  Hillbilly noir or one of last year’s better films?

The Kids Are All Right.  Who are these people?  Is this just your standard issue Hollywood love triangle tricked out in lesbian drag to make it seem “new and edgy,” or is it actually some kind of science fiction film that takes place in an alternate universe populated by annoying, self-centered people who actually say things like “all right” and “groovy”?
