Robert Downey, Jr. and Zach Galifianakis team up for the road trip comedy Due Date. While both are amazingly talented actors and comedians, Due Date suffers from a lack of coherence. The drama is forced and the comedy is all but ruined thanks to the numerous trailers. The best moments in the film were the most irreverent and unexpected – unfortunately, these moments are few and far between, which is surprising considering Todd Phillips’ previous work with Old School and The Hangover. Enjoyable enough, but ultimately pointless. Read the full review here.

Megamind features the voice talents of Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, David Cross and Brad Pitt. A beautifully animated 3D movie, Megamind not only delivers on visuals, but manages to tell a rather deep and original story. Youngsters will love the action and slapstick comedy, while older viewers will enjoy the inside jokes and philosophical questions about good and evil that the movie invokes. Finally, a Will Ferrell movie that doesn’t annoy me. Read the full review here.

Fair Game tells the story of outed CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson, starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn. Both actors deliver powerhouse performances, portraying this family with such conviction that one almost forgets the government conspiracy plot thread. A truly moving family drama at its core, Fair Game is a testament to the power of family in the face of impossible odds. Add Doug Liman’s action-minded and tense directing, and you have a first rate drama/thriller on your hands. Read the full review here.
