Johnny Knoxville did a great job getting into character, but this was more along the lines of something that should have gone straight to MTV as opposed to charging audiences $10 to see. The film was a self-indulging shallow "comedy" where Knoxville and a preteen go around and cause havoc in various communities. 2 out of 4 stars.

A documentary about the middle class and all of the injustices that go along with living in the middle. Robert Reich does a great job outlining the underlining issues in America with regard to financial inequality without sounding too preachy. 3 out of 4 stars.

Tom Hanks turns in his greatest performance on screen since the days of Cast Away and Apollo 13. Truly a cinematic masterpiece that was done with such detail and thought. Even though the actual Captain Phillips was not as much of a hero as we all think he was, Tom Hanks sure did a hell of a job; one worthy of an Academy Award nomination. 4 out of 4 stars.

The Kennedy assassination docudrama gives the viewer nothing new to ponder, but gives us an inside look on what it was like in the operating room when doctors were desperately trying to revive the ailing President. Nothing groundbreaking or memorable but nevertheless an entertaining ride. 2 and a half out of 4 stars.
