American Hustle (2013) ****

American Hustle is a comedy-drama film, directed by David O. Russell to a screenplay by Eric Warren Singer and Russell himself. It is inspired by the FBI ABSCAM operation, which took place in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The film stars a terrific ensemble, including Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K. and Jennifer Lawrence.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) ****

The second installment to The Hunger Games series proves to be a great improvement over the first part; the plot is tighter, the direction smoother, and the overall feel is of deeper purpose, both emotionally and socio-politically. The novel itself is still deeper and much more detailed, but all things considered, this is an excellent adaptation and one well worth seeing on the silver screen.

Silver Linings Playbook (2012) ****

Do bipolars attract? Silver Linings Playbook is, in itself, a bit of a bipolar movie. Two hours long, its first 60 minutes are over the top and somewhat tiresome, while its final 60 minutes show a heart.

The Hunger Games (2012) ***

A much anticipated film, I am told The Hunger Games is better read than seen on the big screen. Without reading the story, the premise of the film is questionable. Regardless, the acting in the film is terrific as is the directing and the cinematography. Once rolling, it is an engaging tale through its over 2 hours of running time.

Like Crazy (2011) ***

What could have been a compelling 30 min short film, is stretched to triple its natural length, resulting in plain boredom and borderline apathy to the main characters.

X-Men: First Class (2011) ****

This prequel to the X-Men series is intense, engaging and entertaining. For a film that runs over 130 min, it felt like half that running, a sure sign for good filmmaking.
