Push is a movie that was less disappointing, mainly because I had no expectations either way, and more in the line of wasted opportunities. In any case, I did enjoy certain parts of the film, just not enough as a full recommendation.
Every so often a movie comes out that takes the viewer into a small world set in one of the largest cities on the planet. Before We Go is a passion flick that basically follows two characters, at first strangers, through NYC dealing with deeply personal issues and in spite of some issues with the script, I couldn’t help but just enjoy following them and invested in their lives.
What’s Your Number is another rom-com that doesn’t exactly break the mold for the genre. You get the old boy meets girl routine and some convoluted and even inane plot points but help me, I did manage to laugh a few times thanks mainly to Anna Faris. Make no mistake, it’s not a good movie and I’d that it might only be worth to Netflix if anything.
Twentieth Century Fox has announced the date and released artwork for the romantic comedy, What’s Your Number? starring Anna Farris, Chris Evans, Ari Graynor, Blythe Danner and Ed Begley Jr. amongst many cameos.

Captain America: The First Avenger has a few things going for it, mostly in the set design, costume design and cinematography but most everything else was standard and unimaginative including actor Chris Evans himself. There’s certainly a fine jump off point for this potential franchise I think in the hands of a better director, it could achieve so much more.
The Losers could have been a fun little action flick but instead most of the action-filled scenes are kind of mundane and the story itself isn’t very interesting. I guess those who are a fan of the comic book might enjoy the film for what it is, but I had hoped that instead of a toned down PG-13 flick, we could’ve instead gotten something similar to Wanted, a film that goes all-out with its sex and violence and thus provided a unique entertainment experience.
