When was the last time an actor executed a more profound career turnaround than Casey Affleck? Gone Baby Gone is his second superb performance of the year. If you don't see it for him, see it for Amy Ryan's breakout, Oscar-nominated turn. The mere presence of the divine Anne Hathaway makes Becoming Jane worth renting. James McAvoy was better in this than in the over-hyped (but still good) Atonement. No new ground was broken in We Own the Night, but it was still damn entertaining. Not so for No Reservations which wasted the brilliant Aaron Eckhart. Has it really been 25 years since Zapped! was released? Greatest poster ever?
