It’s Complicated, 2009 (Cast-Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin)        Grade B+

Is Sleeping With Ex Cheating?

Romcom with well preserved talent :)  (Teddyree)

Dream House, 2011 (Cast-Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts)  Grade B

Murders?  What murders?  Psychological thriller.

A different and intense thriller.  (Heather)

The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, 1976 (Cast-Nicol Williamson, Robert Duvall, Alan Arkin, Laurence Olivier)   Grade B-

Sherlock, cocaine, Freud.  Oddly addicting.

Murphy, Sidibe provided the laughs.

Would sink without Eddie Murphy (Jenners)

  1. The only one I’ve seen is Hope Springs and I’d say: Talented cast wasted; mediocre plot.

  3. I think I”m not going to see Hope Springs any time soon. I did see Tower Heist but barely remember it so I guess I’d say: Would sink without Eddie Murphy

  6. Two Streep movies in a month! But I could watch her forever since she’s so different in each movie. I do want to watch It’s Complicated – I heard others raving about it.
