Movies I have seen lately

Iron Man - It was much better than I expected it to be. Robert Downey Jr. was first rate in his performance, the tech gadgets were neat and the story line, while predictable, played out well on screen. Rating: 7.5/10.

Juno - Overhyped and overrated. The female lead role actress was commendable but the movie lacked the zest and coherence of a top flick. Rating: 5/10

Charlie Wilson's War - This was a Johnny Come lately Democrats taking credit for the defeat of the Soviet Union movie. While Phillip Seymour Hoffman was excellent as usual. Tom Hanks' turned his role into an upmarket Forrest Gump. Julie Roberts failed to impress as did the obvious butchering of historical facts (for example there was an emphasis in the movie on the lack of American follow up in Afghanistan after the Soviets were driven out - this was simply not the case). Rating: 6/10
