I was never a huge fan of the Terminator movies, so I wasn't too upset about the mythology-raping that goes on in Terminator Salvation. For me it was just good, loud fun with cool robots and Moon Bloodgood's amazing cleavage. During a family visit over Christmas I was snookered into seeing the first Night at the Museum. That will not be the case with the dreary-looking Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. Yes, the flicks are stupid, but I am a fan of whatever the Wayans' brothers touch so I'll queue up for Dance Flick. In shame.

Jessica Biel has quietly become a very fine actress and in Easy Virtue she actually gives as good as she gets from such masters of the English period piece as Colin Firth. If only Soderbergh would just completely abandon crap like the Ocean's series and focus on things like The Girlfriend Experience. It's not a complete success, but at least it's challenging and the casting of Sasha Grey was bold. Both The Boys: The Sherman Brothers' Story and O'Horten are fine, small films with intriguing premises that no one will bother to see. Too bad.
