Boss (tv) – ★★★☆☆
– enjoyable melodrama

– Russell (and late great Ernest Borgnine) did it better, but fun OTT Joseph Gilgun

God Bless America☆☆☆☆☆
– fell asleep

The Amazing Spider-Man (3D) – ★★★☆☆
– not bad, but a reboot so soon? Stone & Garfield good, 3D awful

United 93★★★☆☆
– hard to watch, hard to look away

Abre los ojos (Open Your Eyes)★★☆☆☆
– so, wait, that wasn’t Penélope Cruz?

Veep (tv) – ★★★☆☆
– for all that The Newsroom does wrong, the Veep does right
