Time...and 'The Avengers'

With a 2012 release date and the daunting task of trying to find a story solid enough to carry all of these characters, it remains a job so gigantic, so Herculean in proportion and anticipation, that only the bravest (or dumbest) among the entertainment elite would face it head on.

Valkyrie

Valkyrie's forward motion is stalled repeatedly by hyperbolically symbolic images, which also undercut some nuanced performances.

Talk, Talk, Talk: December 2008

Just like the end of an inspiring speech that may or may not succeed in making its point, these final four weeks before 2009 tend to define or defeat the entire awards season purpose.

Film

Both dazzlingly brilliant and incredibly irritating, often most irritating when it catches itself being brilliant.
