Attack The Block, simple, well-done, fun movie. I could have used a subtitle here and there. Big toofy aliens an' tha', innit? Recommended.

Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon 1/2 a star.
This movie is so mindless that Dark of the Mooness should become a synonym for a complete lack of understanding of everything. The screenwriters didn't understand how the moon works, how the Apollo lunar lander works, how gravity works, and how plot and characterization work.

But judging by the $1,123,196,189 that the movie made so far, they seem to understand what the audience wants to see.

"The Descendants"

George Clooney's best effort to date about a Hawaiian land baron who becomes a full time parent amid a family crisis. In limited release. The lush Hawaiian countryside should get a co-starring role. Very satisfying, given the depressing story line. A good mix of comic relief.

9/10

Source Code gets 7.5 stars from me. Someone described it as Groundhog Day meets Speed. I enjoyed it a bit more than Moon, the director's first film.

Salt ( a 2010 Angelina Jolie action movie) 1.5 out of 5

The wife and daughter dragged this home from the Red Box, so we gave it a look. Pretty much a Bourne wanna-be.... lots of action, but somehow boring. No chemistry, uninteresting characters, silly plot, and Angelina looks so horribly skinny and wasted away. And the surgically smashed lip thing..... >shudder<.

Worth a rental I guess, as long as it costs no more than a buck

Agree. Felt like real Hawaii, not the tourist version. Plus the girl who played the older daughter was great. She's going to be a star.
