Deception (2008) [R]-- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $11.00
Review-lite: Deception might well be the moniker for the advertising campaign for the film that most certainly deceives but not, unfortunately, in the ways fans of mystery thrillers enjoy. If you've witnessed the trailer, you've seen a more exciting short film than the feature film could ever be. If you thought because it stars Hugh Jackman, Ewan McGregor, and Michelle Williams it would be a good film, think again. If you thought, based on the preview trailer, the film would be a fascinating mind game, not so. First, the film is nearly as hopelessly dull as the characters and their lifeless portrayals. Second, while the film might not be as predictable as the aforementioned statements might tend to make one think, it's still highly predictable and not even terribly sneaky about planting the bread crumbs usable to predict not only the 'twist' but the ending as well.

Sex and the City (2008) [R]-- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $11.25
Review-lite: When it comes to "Sex and the City" I'm pretty close to being a virgin like many other millions of potential viewers of the film who, likewise, don't know much about the now infamous foursome of NYC self-obsessed gal pals, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis), and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon). Reuniting the fab four around the concept of marriage or, in the case of Samantha, "long-term, relationship", survival consumes the 1 hour, 48-minute plot. The result is an okay movie. I didn't love it nor find it terribly illuminating. There weren't very funny lines, dutifully quality performances by the leading actresses, and some touching moments. Fans of the series may enjoy it, but as for the rest of us, it's just a slightly above average, mostly routine, romantic summer dramedy and a half written and directed by series vet Michael Patrick King.
