"Lee Daniels' The Butler"
Cast: Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Alan Rickman, Jane Fonda
Director: Lee Daniels
Comment: A well written and acted illustration of the ravages of slavery, through the civil rights movement up to the first black President of the United States. All seen through the eyes of a long-time White House butler.
Cast: Michael Stuhlbarg, Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Louis C.K., Bobby Cannavale, Andrew Dice Clay, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard
Director: Woody Allen
Comment: The epitome of a tragic comedy. Blanchett is outstanding in this picture. Allen's neurotically insane comedy comes through in spades amid the "tragic" lives of the principals.
Cast: Hugh Jackman, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova
Director: James Mangold
Comment: For those who enjoy watching Jackman with his shirt off, it's a big hit. Other than that it is a super hero story trying to be unnecessarily esoteric, "long winded," lame lines and with completely over-the-top stupid action. Can wait for the next one.
Cast: Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, Matthew Modine
Director: Joshua Michael Stern
Comment: Masterful performance by Ashton Kutcher portraying Steve Jobs, founder of Apple Computer, building and growing the new high tech company.
