Last week's movies

Saw a couple of videos over the weekend, but I've been so caught up in the middle east news that I haven't had a chance to blog about them ~

You Again - This is such a perfect scenario, about a successful young woman forced to confront the girl who made her high school years miserable when said girl gets engaged to her beloved brother; it almost seems like it can't miss, with such a winning setup and a great cast, I especially liked Sigourney Weaver and Jamie Lee Curtis; the movie had some good moments, but wasn't as captivating as it could have been; not a dud, but not too memorable either.

Salt - Not a bad movie, though I agree with the many critics, including my friend Suzanne, who noted that it requires a bit too much suspension of disbelief, so the extremities of the plot gets distracting pretty quickly.  But it was clever, and rather fresh, and of course Angelina is such a powerful screen presence, you don't mind going along for the ride, no matter how improbable.
