BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: THE OATH

The frak hits the fan on GALACTICA! This show continues to show why it is the best series going-the only bad thing? Waiting another week to see what happens next! Just awesome. — Stormy Curry

This has got to be one of the best GALACTICA episodes ever! Who will live? Who will die? I can’t wait a week to find out!! Frakin’ amazimg! — Alan Yudman

BURN NOTICE: DO NO HARM

Smart, funny and completely HOT, BURN NOTICE is back. Just when we think Michael is close to answers, they’re completely blown away… Literally! The bomb seemed to shake some thing loose in Michael. He was more raw, unbridled rage than cool spy. Great start to the new season of a show everyone should watch! — Alan Yudman

AMUSEMENT

A psycho tortures three women who angered him years ago in elementary school for his own twisted AMUSEMENT. If only the audience found it similarly diverting. Most everything here is rote and familiar, with a climax that takes way too long to play out and a villain whose “amusing” laugh is more annoying than creepy. — Jeff Schultz

MY BLOODY VALENTINE, 3D

MY BLOODY VALENTINE, sweet blood-soaked Valentine, you make me smiiiiile with my heart. Your plot is laughable, the 3D process highly photographable, but yoU’re not quiiiiite a work of art…..Still, it IS a solid B-level slasher pic with a gimmick that is technically pretty cool. But bad, bad acting. — Jeff Schultz

SEVEN POUNDS

Seven Pounds carries a lot of weight. Even though it drags a bit in the middle, this feel bad movie of the year is actually pretty good. The mystery twist works and Will Smith does such a good job that we almost forgive him for Hancock…almost. — Stormy Curry

CHANGELING

Another outstanding movie from Eastwood. CHANGELING plays all the notes to perfection. No one performance is remarkable.. The story & direction carry the day. — Alan Yudman

Grim, riveting, unbelievable, and heartbreaking. Changeling is tough to shake mostly because its based on actual events and those events are chilling. Between this and Gran Torino, Clint is having the best year of his career-and has made two of his finest! One of the years best. — Stormy Curry

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: SOMETIMES A GREAT NOTION

How to review BATTLESTAR GALACTICA without giving anything away? Amazing reveals. Epic meltdowns. New questions posed. Unbelievable sadness. The first of the final episodes is frakin’ great. And who knew the final Cylon is…. watch it yourself!! — Alan Yudman

Note to sci-fi snobs: don’t be put off by a show with spaceships, robots, and alien planets. I was and am glad I gave this show a chance. I was floored by how good the first episode of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA was & am Amazed that this latest season premiere is just as good if not better! The top notch writing, directing, and acting makes you realize this isn’t a campy Star Trek type of show. It is deep, thought provoking material that mirrors our now scary and uncertain world. Nine more to go, frakkin’ fantastic! — Stormy Curry

BRIDE WARS

I went to see BRIDE WARS for two specific reasons: Steve Howey and Kristen Johnston, two good actors who don’t do enough movie work. They’re both fun in this enjoyable chick flick, a pleasant confection unfairly pummeled by critics. Oddly, Kate Hudson is poorly and inconsistently shot, even though the cameraman is the great Frederick Elmes. — Jeff Schultz

HOTEL FOR DOGS

Adorable mutts, fresh-faced kids, a non-threatening plotline with a foregone happy ending…HOTEL FOR DOGS isn’t Chekhov, but it entertainingly fosters the message that the least among us are often the most worth saving. Emma Roberts continues to grow into her beauty. And it’s good to see Kyla Pratt, from the sitcom One On One, working on the big screen. — Jeff Schultz
