The Help

Very Highly Recommended (Bring lots of tissue!)

Cowboys and Aliens

Recommended, particularly if in the company of an adolescent male 15 years or younger.

One Day

A movie to keep in mind when confined to home this winter with a high fever, cursing yourself for failing to get a flu shot.

Super

Shut up, crime.

Another Earth

A philosophical cinematic enigma that only makes you wish pot was legal if used in a movie theater.

30 Minutes or Less

Recommended Only If the Alternative Is To Have Your Wisdom Teeth Extracted Through Ear Canal Without Novocaine

Sarah’s Key

Interesting at Times as an Historical Piece, but Ultimately Disappointing As a Movie

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

It is not just a great summer action movie, but I dare say a film of significance.

Incendies

This is a film that will challenge you visually and emotionally, and the impact is likely to stay with you long after leaving the theater.
