Could have been 'Almost Perfect'

With a predominantly Asian cast, “Almost Perfect” may at first strike you as an ethnocentric film like the movie director Bertha Bay-sa Pan debuted in her days at Brown University, “Face.” However, as you become more and more absorbed in the movie, you realize the conflicts and problems developed in the storyline derive from everyone just being all too human. It's a film where the story told is so incredibly detailed and realistically that nothing is surprising or neverbefore-seen different.

'Planes' never soars

“Planes,” the new animated action adventure from Disney, is a jaunty excursion into the wild blue yonder where planes do the talking, as well as the flying, and a crop-dusting underdog dreams of making the Wings Around the Globe racing circuit.

'Elysium' strikes equilibrium

“Elysium” will inevitably be compared to Neill Blomkamp's masterpiece debut “District 9.” Indeed verdicts have already been passed down of it being disappointing and falling short of expectations. However, for originality, visual craft, discussed themes and its storyline, it does strive to be much more than your average Friday night movie.
