So, er, I ended up cutting most of my commentary as I realized I rambled just a wee bit too much!
Great: Black Swan, Easy A, Harry Potter, How to Tame Your Dragon, Inception, The King's Speech, Prince of Persia, Tangled, True Grit
Black Swan was just amazing! I drove two hours just to be able to see this in theaters as it wasn't playing anywhere close, which is the longest I've gone anywhere just to see a movie. Extremely well worth it, though! Harry Potter was an obvious, but I was very surprised by Tangled, How to Tame Your Dragon, and Prince of Persia, especially the latter, but all amazingly done! Especially fond of Tangled; yes, a Disney girl at heart, but this movie, as did The Princess and the Frog, reminds me so much of a Disney era that was fantastical -- Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, A Little Mermaid -- and I hope they continue with that direction. Inception, The King's Speech and True Grit were all remarkable done, though I was most impressed by the acting of Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and was appropriately dazzled by Bridges and Damon. Easy A I expected to enjoy but not to find as wonderful as I did; Emma Stone was absolutely flawless, the script witty, fresh and biting, and it's really hard not to like any movie Stanley Tucci attaches his name to.
Good: The A-Team, Alice in Wonderland, The Back-up Plan, Burlesque, Dear John, Eat Pray Love, Extraordinary Measures, For Colored Girls, Killers, Life as We Know It, Love and Other Drugs, Secretariat, The Social Network, Valentine's Day, You Again
Flat out: Betty White (and Sigourney Weaver, to a degree) saved You Again, but unfortunately in what has become her trademark of sweet old lady saying raunchy things. Still, if it wasn't for her, and my favorite alien killer, Kristen Bell would have been a purely sinking ship. Well, make that two sinking ships as the only thing that saved Burlesque from reaching the bottom was its music, good-great acting by a cast not rolling its eyes at such a horrendous script (I don't know how the writer/director convinced any of them to do it, especially after reading the first five drafts that were all equally worse in some degree than the last, but thankfully none of those full versions made it to the screen), and really dazzling choreography. (My consolation over Burlesque not being amazing is that Glitter and Crossroads were far, far, far worse.)
Okay: Tooth Fairy, The Last Song, Knight and Day, Dinner for Schmucks
I loved The Rock's Disney film The Game Plan, it was cute, humorous, sweet and yet actually good. I figured I'd like The Tooth Fairy, too, especially because of Julie Andrews, but it fell very, very short... even shorter than The Last Song. Dinner for Schmucks was another one I really wanted to like, except the movie wasn't anything what the previews made it out to be. If the movie had really just been about this dinner with a whole bunch of schmucks , it would have been great. Knight and Day ... ? Dear spirits.
Bad: Leap Year, When in Rome, Date Night, Just Wright, MacGruber
What can I really say? Amy Adams was a disappointment, as was Kristen Bell. Unfortunately there's nothing you can do with a horrible script (Just Wright and Date Night) and MacGruber...
Let's not go there.
I still have a bunch more that I didn't get a chance to watch yet, but thank goodness for DVDs!
