Battle: Los Angeles: (3.5 out of 5): This is a good movie for anyone who likes action. Aaron Eckhart gives an especially powerful performance as a hated Sergeant who leads his men against the aliens. My only objection is that the plot tends to drag (especially at the first), and the action sequences are a bit predicable at times.
Black Swan: (4 out of 5): Natalie Portman gives an awesome performance in the lead role in this beautifully choreographed, beautifully scored twist on the classic Swan Lake ballet. Surprisingly, Mila Kunis is good as well. If anything, my objection is that the sexual tension in the movie is a bit too overdone and could have been toned down without losing much. Also, the plot twist at the end was predictable.
Tangled: (5 out of 5): This is the best Disney movie I've seen in ages, and one of my favorite movies of the year. The animation, voice acting (courtesy of Mandy Moore), action sequences, slapstick humor, and overall charm of this movie are superb. If anything, I found the film so engrossing that I wanted a longer movie.
Tron Legacy: (3.5 out of 5): This is a very good movie for fans of the the alternate computer generated reality genre. Every time I see a movie like this one, I am reminded exactly how far computer generated special effects have come in the last 10 years. Even so, the movie is somewhat slow in places, and the ending is anticlimactic.
