In Theaters Now

Looking to head to the theater this weekend, but don’t know what to see?  Can’t find your latest issue of Entertainment Weekly to help you?  Oh dear, whatever will you do?  Well, here are my grades at a glance:
It’s Kind of a Funny Story             Grade: A+   (see my brief review published on Tuesday 9/28 as part of my Toronto Film Festival blog)  http://fliederonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/09/toronto-film-festival.html
Buried                                  Grade: A   (see my brief review published on Tuesday 9/28 as part of my Toronto Film Festival blog)  http://fliederonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/09/toronto-film-festival.html
Never Let Me Go             Grade: A   (see my brief review published on Tuesday 9/28 as part of my Toronto Film Festival blog)  http://fliederonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/09/toronto-film-festival.html
Inception                            Grade: A-  (Is there anyone who hasn’t heard about this film?  Whether you love it, or just like it, you’ll probably want to see it a second time.  I know I do.)
Let Me In                             Grade: B+   (see my brief review published on Tuesday 9/28 as part of my Toronto Film Festival blog)  http://fliederonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/09/toronto-film-festival.html
Easy A                                   Grade: B+   (see my brief review published on Tuesday 9/28 as part of my Toronto Film Festival blog.  Note: I’m upgrading from a B to a B+.  It’s my blog, I can do what I want.)  http://fliederonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/09/toronto-film-festival.html
I’m Still Here                     Grade: B   (see my brief review published on Tuesday 9/28 as part of my Toronto Film Festival blog)  http://fliederonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/09/toronto-film-festival.html
The Town                            Grade: B    (see my brief review published on Tuesday 9/28 as part of my Toronto Film Festival blog)  http://fliederonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/09/toronto-film-festival.html
Wall Street:  Money Never Sleeps          Grade: B   (It’s been 23 years since ‘Wall Street’.  This one isn’t nearly as good as the first, but it’s worth seeing if only to see Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko just one last time.  ‘Greed is Good.’  Gekko is great.)

Red             Grade: B

Stone                                    Grade: B-   (see my brief review published on Tuesday 9/28 as part of my Toronto Film Festival blog)  http://fliederonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/09/toronto-film-festival.html
Hereafter                            Grade: C   http://fliederonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/10/hereafter.html

Conviction                          Grade: C  (Hilary Swank devotes her life to getting her brother played by Sam Rockwell out of prison.  Unfortunately, the film just doesn’t get the joys or the sorrows right.)
Catfish                                  Grade: C   (see my review published on Sunday 10/3.  But note that upon further thought I've downgraded from a C+ to a C.)http://fliederonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/10/catfish.html
You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger          Grade: C    (see my brief review published on Tuesday 9/28 as part of my Toronto Film Festival blog http://fliederonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/09/toronto-film-festival.html
Jack Goes Boating           Grade: C-   (Philip Seymour Hoffman is one of the greatest actors working today.  Unfortunately his directorial debut isn’t a winner.  The characters are awkward and unlikeable.  And PSH needs a shower.  Big time.)
Devil                                     Grade: D    (see my review published on Tuesday 10/5) http://fliederonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/10/devil.html
