One Popcorn: Flop

Three Popcorns: Go see it
Four Popcorns: Standing ovation
Genre: Foreign Drama
Cast: Gaei Garcia Bemal, Alfredo Castro, Antonia Zegers, Luis Gnecco, Marcial Tagle
Director: Pablo Larrain
Comment: A very riveting portrayal of the intrigue behind the 1988 unseating of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet in an internationally forced election. Old style but very creative and courageous advertising communication got the job done.
Cast: Real People
Director: Paul Almond, Michael Apted
Comment: A brilliant long term work documenting many British people from the age of seven, every seven years, to their current age of 56. A bit voyeuristic but captivating and very thought provoking about what we have done, and are doing, with our own lives. Can't wait for "63 Up"!
"Tyler Perry's Temptation"
Cast: Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Lance Gross, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Williams, Robbie Jones
Director: Tyler Perry
Comment: What a disappointment! Perry has been doing some very good work lately but this is some of the poorest scripting and acting you will ever see.
