Easy A

This modern-day "adaptation" (if it could really be called that) of Nathaniel Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter is predictable yet quite charming to watch.  Lots of well-known actors in the supporting cast: Thomas Haden Church, Patricia Clarkson, Stanley Tucci, Fred Armisen, Malcolm McDowell.  Emma Stone is fun as the protagonist: I give this movie an A!


Got around to seeing this, even though I knew it wouldn't be as good as the comic of the same name.  And, of course, it wasn't.  It had some of the same attitude, though (lots of swearing and killing), and they made the movie somewhat unpredictable, even though the comic already had some surprising plot twists.


A cute little Japanese movie about a boy and his fish.  Or maybe a fish and her boy.  A little trite, but enjoyable in the spirit in which it was made.  Hearing Tina Fey and Matt Damon voice the boy's parents was a bit disconcerting!


This movie (like Expendables, featuring a cast of older actors) is a lot of fun to watch.  Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman,, and Brian Cox play a bunch of "retired" spies/assassins who are forced to unretire.  Quite the fun film!
