    ★★

    “It's not a crime to be an asshole”

    The idea of an asshole superhero and dealing with the collateral damage of his actions is—especially released in the superhero times of 2008—a fun and fascinating one. Unfortunately, Peter Berg's film seems to settle with the sheer idea and does with it just the bare minimum of what you'd expect. Sure, Will Smith is always reliable but it's hard to not feel like he's on auto-pilot when his role amounts to nothing…

    “I'm not going to waste my time arguing with a man who's lining up to be a hot lunch”

    Yesterday, I saw Jaws for the umptieth time and it struck me that it was not only a perfect movie, but also a perfect viewing.

    I don't exactly know why, but to watch Steven Spielberg's breakthrough yesterday was such a perfect fit. The pleasant breeze of the summer have just started to crawl in and the last few days have meant…
