I turned 40 yesterday. These things happen. But as a result, this new release roundup is going to be somewhat terse. I've only got a few minutes before I head over to the LA County Museum of Art's Kubrick exhibit that all y'all said I needed to visit.

The big one? White House Down? Yeah, Channing Tatum can act. For that matter, so can everyone else in this film. But it's very much a Roland Emmerich joint. Shit blows up, ha ha. I wasn't drawn in, alas.

Fellow critic Scott Marks didn't hate The Heat.

But he did like Augustine.

And also Byzantium.

But not Unfinished Song.

Finally, I admired Redemption for its ambition, and to a lesser extent, its execution.

Agreed re: Redemption. Felt a bit "off" in some places but a good try.
