We watched five this weekend:
Super 8: Brilliant. Elle Fanning is spectacular and the kids are all good. If you like Stand By Me/The Body + ET/Close Encounters
Midnight in Paris: I'm not a big Woody Allen fan but Owen Wilson owns this romantic, nostalgic film
True Grit: I've never seen the original, but it's hard to imagine John Wayne being better than Jeff Bridges, who lets himself be gritty and grimy and gruff
Bitter/Sweet: Funny romantic east (Thailand) meets west (Seattle) in a film about coffee
Love and Other Drugs: We thought this would be campy and corny but it's quite a good romantic film. Could have done without the younger brother's character. The trailers did not allude to illness at all, and that's really the pivot of the film.
