Quick Movie Reviews

I saw the Great Debaters. Liked it well enough but was disturbed by the simple and stereotypical portrayals of whites. It was not until the debaters got to Harvard that any white people were portayed as anything but nasty, stupid racists.

Juno. Loved it. Very funny. Great sound track. Touching. Pro life but not preachy. Go see it.

I am legend was good action - was a modernized version of The Omegaman with Charlton Heston from 1971. 4 stars

National Treasure pt 2 was good, not as good as the first, you knew what was going to happen, like any Indy Jones movie 3 stars

"Charlie Wilson's War" was good - especially if you are a West Wing fan, which I am. TV is not the same without it.

At any rate, the story veered a little from the truth, but not in any significant way. I did have a problem with the implication that Charlie Wilson was the sole reason we won the cold war. They conviently leave out of the movie the fact that it was Reagan who finally approved the deployment of Stinger missles.

I expect that kind of treatment from Hollywierd and I am able to look past it - especially when the movie has good actors as this one did.
