Nineteen: The Scarlet Letter, Alcoholism, and “Being True”

The movie was hammered with bad reviews at the time. "Yeah," concedes Gary, "but there's some good work in there."

Thirteen: Batman Begins, Friends with Babies, and Helping the Helpers

Begins is most likely the best of the trilogy and the best Batman film thus far. NO, I can hear you saying, Dark Knight is the best everrrrr. Well, I'm sorry, but you're wrong.

Two: Robocop, Reinvention, & Nostalgia

Gary Oldman, in his little round spectacles, probably deserves better lines than the following: "Aleeeeeeeex! ALEX! Alex. Alex! Alex! ALEEEEX CAN YOU HEAR ME? Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex, no!" (Clearly he cannot hear you, Gary, or he probably would have mentioned it by now).

One: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Character Building, and The Gift of Loss

We inevitably hope the best for Harry because time and time again the boy is subjected to the loss of those he loves.
