Mollie Sue Gondi

Salt (2010)

A CIA agent goes on the run after a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy.

Standard action and spionage thriller which unsuccessfully tries to outwit the audience with numerous plot twists.

Maltin **1/2: "Jolie's sincerity and physicality make her a perfect fit for this part, and the film moves like a bullet - which is good, because if you think about it too much, it doesn't make a lot of sense. Great stunt work and action scenes make this mindless fun."


New Stuff: Jake Bugg

New appraised young singer-songwriter.

Yulia Leontieva

The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942)

When acerbic critic Sheridan Whiteside slips on the front steps of a provincial Ohio businessman's home and breaks his hip, he and his entourage take over the house indefinitely.

Fast-paced, lively and witty variation on the oddball comedy full of absurd ideas and situations.

Halliwell ***: "Delightfully malicious caricature of Alexander Woollcott which, though virtually confined to one set, moves so fast that one barely notices the lack of cinematic variety, and certainly provides more than a laugh a minute, especially for those old enough to understand all the references."

Maltin ***1/2: "Delightful adaptation of George S. Kaufman-Moss Hart play, inspired by the celebrated critic and columnist Alexander Wollcott."

First Lines: Anatole France - The Gods Will Have Blood

Very early one morning, Evariste Gamelin - artist, pupil of David, member of the Section du Pont-Neuf, formerly Section Henri IV - was to be seen approaching the ancient church of the Barnabites, which had served for three years, since the 21st May, 1790, as the meeting-place for the general assembly of the Section.

AVPR: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem (2007)

Warring alien and predator races descend on a small town, where unsuspecting residents must band together for any chance of survival.

I admit this third time there was nothing better going on on TV...
