At the Movies

I review "Cadillac Records" on

Other recent movies- I see "Frost/Nixon" tonight. I really didn't like "Doubt," I thought it was more an Oscar-Trolling Machine than it was a movie, filled with a whole lot of yelling disguised as great acting. But "Valkyrie" was surprisingly good. Despite a slow start, it gets going after a half hour and turns into an expert thriller. I was also pleasantly shocked that its running time came in under two hours- yes, it was surprisingly short, much like Tom Cruise himself.

I don't care about the Golden Globes, so I won't be commenting on that. No award show that nominates "Mammia Mia" for Best Picture, and not "Milk," deserves to be taken seriously by anyone.

I thought the acting was very good in Cadillac Records. It's a movie any music fan should see to get an appreciation of great influences.
