“In Time.” “The Three Musketeers.” “Footloose.” “Johnny English Reborn.” These are among the films now playing in multiplexes across the country. I find this roster to be strange and unsettling, as I have apparently been laboring under the misapprehension that we were supposed to be smack-dab in the middle of awards season. Silly me.

It seems that true prestige pictures are in short supply this season, and I don’t know about you, but the constant barrage of second- and third-rate wide releases is really taking a toll on my movie-going spirit. And unfortunately, the holiday movie schedule for the next couple months doesn’t promise much relief — 2011 may well end up as one of the most lackluster years in recent memory, which is quite a startling feat considering the steady decline of Hollywood’s output these past few years.

    Mr Wallis stated ....I’ve always found Clint Eastwood’s directorial talents to be overblown and woefully uneven

    I knew Mr Wallis had something in common with Clint Eastwood. But until now, I did not know what it was.

    Hey, I downloaded Paranormal Activity 3 from this site : http://www.bestmoviezonline.com/paranormal-activity-3/ and It was amazing. The best horror movie I've ever seen. It scared me. It was one of the best if not even the best horror movie I've ever seen. It was so great that after viewing it I bought the original copy.
