Do the Right Thing (1989)

On the hottest day of the year on a street in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, everyone's hate and bigotry smolders and builds until it explodes into violence. 
Congenial study of racial tensions culminating myriad stories into one violent explosion.
Halliwell***: "Complex, witty, street-wise and passionate film about racism."

Maltin***: "Idealized, individualistic look at life in the black community of Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn, ...Entertaining and provocative, with a much-discussed (and troubling) finale."

I Am Number Four (2011)

Aliens and their Guardians are hiding on Earth from intergalactic bounty hunters.

Sci-fi  made for teens is as silly as it sounds and not at all exciting.

Maltin*1/2: "Another attempt to create a TWILIGHT-like series, only this is pseudo-science fiction rather than pseudo-horror. Despite the trappings, it's inferior and exploits its target audience. A waste of time, except for the alien beagle."

13 Going on 30 (2004)

A 13 year old girl plays a game on her 13th birthday and wakes up the next day as a 30 year old woman.

Slight romantic comedy, quite likable, but utterly predictable as well.

Maltin**1/2: "Variation on (rip-off of?) BIG is plottier than it needs to be but is energized by the irresistable charm of Garner, in her first starring vehicle; Ruffalo is also good as her childhood pal grown up."
