Finally! Some decent movies in the new year. Despite some lackluster trailers & commercials, the latest romantic comedy from Ashton Kutcher is surprisingly funny and entertaining. He stars opposite Oscar winner-to-be (yeah, I called that in September!) Natalie Portman in the Ivan Reitman-directed No Strings Attached. Also in theaters is The Way Back, a true story starring Jim Sturgess and Colin Farrell. Here are my reviews, plus a little preview of what's happening this year at Sundance.
