In the Loop (2009)

A political satire centered around a potential war of convenience rings almost too true but still succeeds at being witty, intelligent, and as funny as can be.  It has a certain Mamet crossed with Christopher Guest feel to it.   So sharp I watched it twice in one day to catch more of the jokes - even better the second time.  One of the best of the year.  9.5 out of 10

Adventureland (2009)

This film reminded me what it was like to be young and dating again. Makes me wonder why does that excitement, that freshness end? What replaces it when it is gone? I'm am a big Eisenberg fan - he does his thing here. Not a Kristen Stewart fan - she does her usual thing here, but it kind of works. The setting of a small time amusement park adds nostalgia points. 8 out of 10
