The Adjustment Bureau, VERY loosely adapted from a Philip K. Dick short story, stars Matt Damon as a young politician who meets and quickly falls for a beguiling British dancer played by Emily Blunt. Unfortunately, their series of chance meetings are not part of the cosmic plan for the two of them, and Damon soon finds himself at first confronted and eventually pursued by the “adjustment bureau,” a mysterious group of fedora-wearing gentlemen who insinuate they are not quite human, and are in fact responsible for making sure everything that happens on earth goes along with a master plan created by their unseen “chairman.”

Captain America: The First Avenger is a just-good-enough origin tale for the final piece of Marvel’s Avengers’ puzzle. It’s not spectacular nor particularly memorable, but during its run-time it skates by purely on a level of fun, and is just effective enough in introducing the character to get you pumped to see him again next summer, this time interacting with a number of other, more interesting characters.

I went to the San Diego Comic Con excited to see footage for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, The Amazing Spiderman and Fright Night. Little did I know that the movie that would make the biggest impact on me would be one I hadn’t even heard of going into the event. Thankfully, though, a decent panel complete with a rave recommendation from an incredibly enthusiastic Guillermo Del Toro convinced my buddies and I to go check out the free sneak preview screening of Drive…and it’s easily the best movie I’ve seen all year.

I have stared into the mouth of hell, and what stared back at me was Bebe’s Kids.

No, the world is not ending, but you’re forgiven for thinking so after seeing two Jennifer Aniston movie reviews in a row on my page.

I have a friend who occasionally forces me to watch movies outside of my usual comfort zone, usually lame romantic comedies. That explains the sudden review for Picture Perfect, a 1997 Jennifer Aniston movie I’m sure very few people have thought about since its 1997 release (and for good reason).

If I ever write a column on huge disparities between the quality of a film and the quality of its trailer, The Violent Kind is going to be right up there. This isn’t to say it’s an excellent film or anything, but that trailer up there had me expecting the same sort of lame, no-surprises, bargain-budget horror flick that has populated the straight-to-video scene for far too long. I think it has to do with that terrible voice-over, but whatever the case, whoever cut that trailer should be ashamed.

Transformers 3 is in an enviable position – in the eyes of many, it only has to be better than Transformers 2. And that’s something a four-year-old director with a crew of mentally challenged chimpanzees could accomplish. So I guess it’s not the biggest shock to say that, yes, I did enjoy this movie more than the last one. But it’s probably also not a shock to hear it’s not quite as good as the first Transformers movie – still the only one where it felt like Michael Bay was reined in to an acceptable level.

Well, here’s something a little different – the recent BBC series Sherlock, which brings Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective into a modern setting.  I don’t usually review television series, preferring to concentrate on movies. But that’s OK. Especially since, in a cool and unique decision, each season of Sherlock is presented as three 90-minute movies, so I think it counts. Heck, it’s like three reviews in one.

If you had told me this time last year that I would end up enjoying the Seth Rogan-starring Green Hornet more than the long-awaited live-action debut of Green Lantern, I would have thought you were crazy. In fact, at first I wondered if my decision to finally watch Green Hornet so soon after also seeing Green Lantern was some sort of madness. And yet, here we are – with me about to tell you why I kind of really dug this movie.
