American Pastoral receives, let’s say, mediocre reviews but for my money, I found all of the performances genuine and the story rather compelling, if not outright depressing and sad; for his first outing as director, Ewan McGregor did a fine job.

Uptown Girls is a breezy but nice little comedy featuring pleasant performances by Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning to go along with an interesting enough plot. The Blu-ray released through Olive Films has some actual features to go along with the so-so video and audio transfers.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon is the second entry, following last year’s monstrous debut for the first in the series of novels to make the big screen. The first movie introduced newcomers and fans of the book to the characters and setup the plot that we knew would happen in the second film. It’s also worth noting that the third movie is slated for a 2010 summer release already, meaning that there is no stopping the giant momentum this series is likely to have for quite some time. But is the sequel better than the first, or has the series run out of steam before it left the station?
