That time of year has arrived once more, but as Potter fans fill theaters (too many dressed in makeshift Hogwarts robes), it is with a mix of anticipation and dread. It’s fitting then that Deathly Hallows Part 1 captures the desire and despair that comes with seeing a much-loved franchise concluded.

(USA) Can a film about a runaway train with a dangerous cargo avoid the triteness trap? Not a chance, if this example is anything to go by.

The “you choose one week, I choose one week” movie date policy is a recipe for disaster in most relationships. The rotation between senseless (but entertaining) bloodbaths and diabetes-inducing romantic comedies is enough to turn any rosy-red love an unhealthy shade of charcoal. While it is unlikely that any gentleman will go out of his way to watch Flowers, it offers some welcome respite when the lady’s turn to pick the flick comes around.Flowers is the story of six women spread over three generations.

With his wife’s C-Section scheduled for the end of the week, Peter heads to the airport to fly home to Los Angeles. As he opens the door of his cab, another car drives by, smashing the door off.
