Mortal Engines - great film! Mad Max meets Star Wars meets The Terminator. Entertaining throughout, with some really interesting characters. I don't get why the reviews are so ho-hum.

Cool Gali, I'm intrigued by that one.  I wasn't really planning on reading the book, but it jumped out at me at the library.  Just finished it today.

Just got back from seeing it today, and I too am completely baffled by the poor reviews. Thanks to the reviews (and the lackluster trailers), I went in with low expectations, and as a fan of the book series I'm happy to have my expectations shattered! It's been a long time since I read the books, but I remember thinking it'd be awesome to see it as a movie. The story may not be a word-for-word reproduction, but it's close enough, and honestly the star of both the books and the film are the crazy spectacular steampunk-post-apocalyptic future world. It's exactly what I always wanted out of an adaptation of the novels: giant moving cities swallowing each other whole, fantastical airships soaring through the clouds, killer cyborg assassins..... it's definitely worth watching on the big screen!

"Dogs Days" was probably completely formulaic and generic, but who cares?  Fun ensemble comedy with a bunch of cute dogs that steal the movie and several ridiculously sweet story lines that amazingly all interconnect in the end.

Vice

A few moments of black humor. A lot of the problems in today's world stem from our misadventure in Iraq.

The Soloist is well worth seeing - the story of Nathaniel Ayers, schizophrenic and homeless, and who is a drop out from Julliard.  Steve Lopez, a columnist for the LA Times, sees him playing on the street (w/a 2 string violin) and develops a relationship/friendship with him.  It's an interesting story and also explores the nature of friendship - terrific acting

From Steve Lopez's book/columns on their story

And the continuing story:

Vijay Gupta, a violinist with the LA Philharmonic and MacArthur Genius Award recipient takes his gift to the same streets:
