2. Wild Child
: (✩✩) Natasha Richarson's last movie starring Emma Roberts. It's about a wild child, played by Roberts, who gets sent to a boarding school in Britain. There, she meets a boy and has to contend with a mean girl and her entourage who are out to get her. In the end, she wins the day. Not very substantial, but it was nice seeing Emma.
: (✩✩✩½) This movie is about the effects of an open relationship on a couple. It was enjoyable, but some of the anger and reactions were a bit much. Courtney Ford plays the woman in the relationship and her real life husband Brandon Routh plays the guy she has on the side.
4. Arthur 2: On the Rocks
: (✩✩✩✩) I saw Arthur
a few months ago and decided to check this one out. Good story with some funny and clever moments from Dudley Moore's lovable drunk, Arthur.
: (✩✩✩✩) Anne Hathaway plays well off girl in L.A. who's gone "gangsta" with her friends because they're bored. Eventually, she and a friend get in with a drug dealer and although they never get into any life-threatening danger, they do go a little far and end up shaken by their lifestyle choices. Anne Hathaway appears topless and Freddy Rodriguez did a fantastic job as a gang banger/drug dealer. I thought I recognized him, but couldn't place him because I'm so used to his clean cut image from Six Feet Under
: (✩✩✩✩½) This was reviewed up-thread. I enjoyed its more realistic take on a viral outbreak.
7. The Blind Side
: (✩✩✩½) True story of a well off white family that takes in and eventually adopts a black kid with no prospects. I enjoyed Sandra Bullock's performance as the tough-as-nails matriarch of the family.
8. Batman: Under the Red Hood
: (✩✩✩✩½) Jason Todd is killed and 5 years later, Batman has to contend with a mysterious new villain in Gotham. The identity of this new villain is pretty obvious from the get go, but the "hows" and "whys" behind his return and behavior provided for a gripping story. Good Batman movie with a poignant ending.
9. The Andromeda Strain
: (✩✩✩½) Slow start and lacks the noise and excitement of modern movies, but it was good and got more engaging as it progressed. I'm glad I finally saw this.
10. The Last Man on Earth
: (✩✩✩✩) Very campy by today's standards, but it was really fun seeing an early version of I Am Legend
. The similarities were pretty amazing.
