Synopsis: Man tells daughter about his past using made up names (shown through a series of flashbacks). She tries to guess which one is her mother.
Verdict: Really very tedious and slow moving. Should have worked but really, really didn't. Possibly laughed out loud once.
Synopsis: Sixteen year old girl gets pregnant and decides to put her baby up for adoption
Verdict: Excellent! Everything 'Definitely, Maybe' wanted to be but wasn't. It was superbly written, brilliantly acted and was funny, clever and touching. I really didn't think I'd like this but it's definitely my favourite film of the year so far.
Starring: Lizzy Caplan, Jessica Lucas, T.J. Miller, Rob Hawkins (no, I'd never heard of any of them either!)
Synopsis: New York comes under attack from a giant creature.
Verdict: You know how some films inform you, others entertain you, others make you laugh, others scare you? This film did none of the above. It had one of the flimsiest plots I've ever seen. Creature attacks, people scream and run, army fires guns, people run back into the danger zone, they scream, they run, they die. The end. Oh yes and it's all filmed on a handheld camera so you feel a bit sick by the end. It was watchable though and I can't say I felt bored (mostly I was peering into the darkness trying to work out what was going on and who was speaking).
