It’s been a good mwaka for sex. Between No Strings Attached, Hall Pass, and Marafiki With Benefits, it seems relationships are out and emotion-free fornication is in. Yet regardless of the somewhat stale premise, Marafiki With Benefits is as enjoyable and down-to-earth of a romantic comedy as you’re going to get in theatres these days. It really amounts to no zaidi than a smartly cast version of No Strings Attached, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth watching.
This Friday, Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios bring wewe the last film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before inayofuata year’s mega team-up that is The Avengers. Read my full review of Captain America: The First Avenger after the break.
For those not familiar with the comic book series, Captain America is the story of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), a frail young man who desperately wants to jiunge the Army to help the United States win World War II. A scientist (Stanley Tucci) working for the government overhears Rogers and convinces him to be a test subject for his experiment. He has developed...
Brit Marling starred in and co-wrote two science fiction sinema that played at Sundance this year. One, The Sound of My Voice, was smart and subtle and thought-provoking and zaidi than a little brilliant. The other was Another Earth.

On the night of the discovery a drunk young physics student smashes her car into a family, killing the wife and son and leaving the father in a coma. Four years later she’s out of prison and he’s out of the coma; she tries to apologize...
My, my — a mild movie for moppets. Will wonders never cease!
At multiplexes in mid-summer, it’s nice to deal with small problems for a change. Especially for small children, who are not all that interested in the doings that beckon teens and tweens.
Thus the animated musical adventure Winnie the Pooh, with its brief running time (under 70 minutes), cuddlesome creatures, gentle interactions, simple plot, subdued charm, and casual enchantment. Pitched directly at preschoolers, it would, it just so happens, do nicely as a youngster’s first theatrical movie.
Deathly Hallows — Part 2 is not so much a sequel as it is just a continuation of Part 1. Rather than having its own three-act structure, Part 2 essentially begins during the middle of the sekunde act, which began in Part 1. If possible, watch Part 1 immediately before watching Part 2.
