Lee Daniels' The Butler (2013) ***

Lee Daniels' The Butler is an uneven film. At over 2 hours long it feels its length. Furthermore, the pace at which the plot moves mirrors the slowness at which African-Americans won civil rights though several decades of the previous century. It is far from being satisfying as a cinematic experience. However, it does take us through a journey of the civil rights movement, a journey worth remembering.

Iron Man 3 (2013) ***

An early installment to this summer's blockbusters, Iron Man 3 delivers plenty of action, even if not much substance. This sequel to Iron Man 2, directed by Shane Black to a screenplay he co-wrote with Drew Pearce, makes some attempts at a changed Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, but fails with creating believable motivation for the film’s villain.

The Way We Were (1973) ***

There is one reason to see The Way We Were and that reason’s name is Barbra Streisand. A romantic drama, The Way We Were focuses on a love story between a poor opinionated Jewish activist (Streisand) and a carefree good-looking WASP, played by Robert Redford. In an otherwise mediocre film that at times jumps all over the place, Streisand shines bright.

The Avengers (2012) ***

Ultimately this 143 min long flick is uneven. It delivers action and entertainment and for the most part is quite engaging. Yet something is amiss.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) ***

What this movie lacks in intelligence and wit, it tries to make up in plenty of director’s Guy Ritchie signature slow-motion action sequences.

Pearl Harbor (2001) **

Pearl Harbor, the movie, suffers from melodrama topped off with tears and misplaced dramatic music. A complete miss.
