Mary Shelley may not be rolling in her grave, but I guarantee you that she’s close to doing some serious calisthenics after viewing (from her spotless theater in the afterlife, of course) the latest cinematic incarnation of her most famous creation.   I, FRANKENSTEIN takes a possibly amusing B- movie scenario and face-plants it into the floor with sloppy execution, leaving a bunch of talented actors flopping about like extras about to be eaten by Jaws.

Conflict is what drives many a film. With so many narratives focusing on life and death issues (saving the world, curing cancer, inciting widespread moral reform, etc.), it’s nice to see a film deal with the seemingly mundane affairs of everyday life, doing so in a fashion that makes the outcome seem as important and relevant as those in pictures with those larger themes. Director Alexander Payne (SIDEWAYS, THE DESCENDANTS) has done this beautifully with his latest, NEBRASKA, a cinematic triumph bolstered by a terrific script and a crackerjack cast.

Prepare yourself folks! It looks like it’s going to be the year of Kevin Hart, whether we like it or not. The comedian’s concert films are doing bang up business, he was the funniest part of the very mediocre GRUDGE MATCH, and he has no less than two more films coming up soon for wide release. Will the world suffer from an overdose of Kevin Hart? Time will tell, but based on RIDE ALONG, the latest buddy cop “comedy” from FANTASTIC FOUR director Tim Story, I think I would tell Mr. Hart to take a little more care in picking his projects. (That said, RIDE ALONG made 40 million dollars on its opening weekend, so what the hell do I know?)

You know, I have to give director Peter Berg (THE RUNDOWN, BATTLESHIP) a ton of credit. Not many filmmakers could recover after the debacle that was BATTLESHIP. That film was so bad, it made the TRANSFORMERS films look like high art. But recover he has and Berg’s latest is probably the most harrowing war film since BLACK HAWK DOWN.  LONE SURVIVOR is just that good.

Have you ever received a Christmas gift in wrapping so plain that it disguised a true delight inside? That’s what it felt like tome as I watched PHILOMENA, a delightful film about equal parts hope and loss that easily made my top ten films of the year. It comes as such a surprise because the trailers for PHILOMENA had not really piqued my interest one bit. I was glad to have ignored my usually solid instincts this time and given it a go.
