Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked

The vacationing Chipmunks and Chipettes are turning a luxury cruise liner into their personal playground, until they become ‘chipwrecked’ on a remote island. As the ‘Munks and Chipettes try various schemes to find their way home, they accidentally discover their new turf is not as deserted as it seems. — (C) Official Site

Scott’s Take – 1 Star

Hopefully this is the last time I have to waste words on the Chipmunks. There are better options out there for the little ones. Go buy The Muppets!

Steve’s Take

My 6 month old son gave this 2 thumbs down when he watched the preview. No more, please!

A Dangerous Method

Seduced by the challenge of an impossible case, the driven Dr. Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) takes the unbalanced yet beautiful Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley) as his patient in A Dangerous Method. Jung’s weapon is the method of his master, the renowned Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen). Both men fall under Sabina’s spell. — (C) Sony Pictures Classics

Scott’s Take – 3 Stars

An interesting take on the friendship and eventual collaboration of renowned psychologists Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud. Great performances by both Fassbender and Mortensen make A Dangerous Method worth a look.

Steve’s Take

This is one of those movies that I would recommend that you give a shot through your local Blockbuster or Red Box vending machine. It is one that you will get sucked into or your A.D.D. will kick in. Let us know what you thought!

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Oskar (Thomas Horn) is convinced that his father (Tom Hanks), who died in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, has left a final message for him hidden somewhere in the city. Feeling disconnected from his grieving mother (Sandra Bullock) and driven by a relentlessly active mind that refuses to believe in things that can’t be observed, Oskar begins searching New York City for the lock that fits a mysterious key he found in his father’s closet. His journey through the five boroughs takes him beyond his own loss to a greater understanding of the observable world around him. — (C) Warner Bros

Scott’s Take – Not Reviewed

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is a movie that got lost in the shuffle for me at awards time. It always looked as if it was trying a little too hard to tug at the heart strings. Maybe I will be wrong about this film, but for now, I will let Steve take the wheel on this one.

That’s all for this week. Next week we have Steven Spielberg’s Warhorse and Matt Damon buys a zoo. Have a great week.
