Directors: Michael Apted, Paul Almond | Stars: Michael Apted, Bruce Balden, Jacqueline Bassett, Symon Basterfield

Votes: 1,656 | Gross: $0.70M

In the most interesting “Up” film of the last few, the professor who came to the states comes close to putting his finger on the value of the series. It doesn’t accurately tell the stories of the people it follows but cumulatively it tells the story of a life lived.

A young woman witnesses a bus accident, and is caught up in the aftermath, where the question of whether or not it was intentional affects many people's lives.

Director: Kenneth Lonergan | Stars: Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, J. Smith-Cameron

Votes: 14,028 | Gross: $0.05M

It’s hard to fault Kenneth Lonergan for creating too rich a portrait of the privileged, self-centered high school student Lisa and her sparring relationship with her actress mother (and the world). Most scenes are acutely observed and written. It’s difficult to fit it all into a feature length film.

The Hunger Games: twenty-four adolescents running through the woods until only one survives, are not particularly interesting. It’s the job of TV emcee Caesar Flickerman (Stanley Tucci) to inject viewer interest and drama. Its closest reality TV analog may be The Olympics where personality profiles prop up unpopular sports.

The most amazing thing about “Warrior” is that it exists. The script is so clichéd and so laughably implausible that it could have been a comedian-driven goof like “Blades of Thunder”. Instead, as its earnestness inspires viewers to jaw dropping unsuspended disbelief, it’s so completely bizarre it’s silly fun.

Jim Baker was a charismatic restauranteur who, in the early 1970s, built a cult around himself consisting of his restaurant’s employees.
