Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull


A Fun Adventure
Attention to Detail (cars, clothes, expressions, etc.)
Cate Blanchett can do anything!

Sometimes it's just too silly.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian


Limited GRAPHIC violence.
The children have improved as actors.

The story doesn't have the same magic as "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe."
The special effects fell short of "The Lion..." as well.

The Visitor


"The Visitor" is my favorite movie of 2008 (as of May).
This is an original and moving story.
Richard Jenkins' performance is "real."

The ending is perfect.

Even though the ending is perfect, you'll want more.

Iron Man


Robert Downey Jr. is well-cast as lead character, Tony Stark.
Comic book fans will be pleased.

Keep the little ones at home.
This movie is too violent for small children.

Baby Mama


Tina Fey and Amy Poehler make a great team.
Amy Poehler hits all the right "comedic notes."

A few confusing scenes with the doorman.
