January is historically one of the worst months for movie-going. Studios typically drop their crappy product on the unsuspecting. This month is no exception. The Uninvited at least features Elizabeth Banks, but she's not naked or being funny so I'll pass. Good to see Maggie Grace back onscreen but would prefer to see her in something less crappy than Taken. Renee Zellweger fans may enjoy New in Town, but I know I won't. The Class had a brief stay in theaters late in 2008 and is back for a second turn. See it. It's funny and touching. Indie fans should enjoy both Blessed Is the Match: The Life and Death of Hannah Senesh and Serbis.
