And the Oscar Goes To… Not a Clue

Captain America: The First Avenger

Holy androstenedione, Batman! Or whatever else it is that’s in the experimental serum that transforms a scrawny kid from Brooklyn into the ultra-buff Super-Soldier known as “Captain America.” He’s really hot, but the movie’s just luke-warm.

X-Men: First Class

This movie is everything a prequel should be: entertaining in its own right and true to the characters we’ve come to know in the previous franchise films. For the uninitiated, the X-Men (and women) are a superhero team sprung from the pages of Marvel comic books. They are considered mutants because they have an extra “X” gene that gives them each a unique power or ability that normal humans lack.

The Green Hornet

I sure hope that the new Green Hornet movie (not to be confused with next summer’s Green Lantern movie) was meant to be purely satirical, ‘cause otherwise, it’s just plain bad. And there’s absolutely no reason- I repeat, no reason – that this movie should be in 3D, unless you like to collect cheap glasses.
