Monkey Business (Part 3: July)

Finally, a month with only one remaining series contender. All wizard based Potter-y aside, this will be the most tenuous time for the business called show. After a strong start, the eccentric collection of entertainments here could make or break this potentially record shattering motion picture season.

Next (2007)

The film doesn’t try to explain or rationalize its essential trick, but drops you rather perfunctorily into Cris' multiple dilemmas.

Reviews

Stealth (2005)

Kara's a lovely, leggy, perfectly made-up figure whose primary purpose is to provide moral framing for the boys' brilliant strikes and calculations.
