My hatred for this impossibly dull, episodic franchise makes it impossible for me to judge the trailer. The good news is that it all comes to an end July 15th. I do, however, hope all you HP fans get everything you want from the final installment.

This famously troubled production has ended up looking absolutely fantastic. Brad Pitt’s charm, the score, feel, supporting cast, and underdog concept all centered around the beauty of baseball should make for a perfect autumn afternoon at the movies. “Moneyball” opens September 23rd.

“Larry Crowne” opens everywhere July 1st. Looks charming enough.

“Monte Carlo” opens everywhere July 1st. Teenage wish-fulfillment is another kind of film I’m probably not the best judge of. Also not a big fan of any film that looks as though it’s yet another theme-less celebration of narcissism.
