Broken City - REVIEW
Broken City - Amazon
DVD release date: 04/30/2013
Theatrical release: 01/18/2013
Language: English
Genre: Crime/Drama
MPAA rating: R
Director: Allen Hughes
Actors: Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe, Catherine Zeta-Jones
We last saw Russell Crowe as an honest French policeman, but in Broken City, he's a corrupt and dirty politician - and I have to say, the role definitely suits him. Mark Wahlberg plays an ex-cop that gets used by NYC Mayor Hostetler (Crowe), and decides he's about had enough of him. Catherine Zeta-Jones is Crowe's wife, though they've been emotionally estranged for some time; even so, with the mayoral election around the corner, she must play the doting wife so that he can beat newcome Jack Valliant (Barry Pepper) to remain the mayor.

The Silver Linings Playbook - REVIEW
The Sliver Linings Playbook - Amazon
DVD release date: 04/30/2013
Theatrical release: 11/21/2012
Language: English
Genre: Comedy/Drama
MPAA rating: R
Director: David O. Russell
Actors: Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro
Silver Linings Playbook is an interesting movie in that it imitates real life more than we care to admit. It's a "slice of life" movie that can move quite slowly at times, but Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence have great chemistry that make the movie worth seeing. Pat (Cooper) has spent the past eight months in a mental hospital in Baltimore, after an incident involving him catching his wife in the act of cheating with one of her teacher colleagues.

The Guilt Trip - REVIEW
The Guilt Trip - Amazon
DVD release date: 04/30/2013
Theatrical release: 12/19/2012
Language: English
Genre: Comedy
MPAA rating: PG-13
Director: Anne Fletcher
Actors: Seth Rogen, Barbra Streisand, Yvonne Strahovski
The Guilt Trip looked like it could be a fun "buddy" movie, only this case with a mom and her son instead of two men or two women, but unfortunately it's not that funny. Barbra Streisand hasn't been in a film since 2010's Little Fockers, but I thought Seth Rogen's reputation for comedy meant the pair would mesh well together, which they did; however, the script holds them back from making this movie a memorable one.
