What should I be doing instead of this?

She's Out of My League (Review)

Jay Baruchel blooms in break-through role

0 Comments · Tuesday, March 9, 2010
Jay Baruchel refuses to rely on the now standard Michael Cera nerd tics (the ubiquitous stuttering and the quiet-sensitive intelligence posing). Instead, he finds ways to live inside the skin and life of a good guy who has unfortunately listened a bit too carefully to the jokingly disparaging remarks of those around him for too long. Grade: B.  

Crossing Over (Review)

Writer/director Wayne Kramer traffics in immigrant collisions

0 Comments · Wednesday, March 25, 2009
With so much drama and so many crossed narrative lines, the comparisons to 'Traffic' and 'Crash' will seem blatant and overplayed, but the aim here is more tightly focused than it might initially seem. There's a lush, overgrown forest, but the tallest tree in the center is Max Brogan (Harrison Ford). He comes to illustrate all sides of the immigration debate without merely flip-flopping between positions. Grade: C.
