Fred Claus (2008) [PG]-- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $9.00
Review-lite: If you're searching for Santa Clause 4, Fred Claus is not it, far from it. Rather, director David Dobkin's take on the curmudgeonly life of Santa's older brother, Fred (Vince Vaughn) plummets into the macabre with grandiose actors playing somewhat more humble characters in a story that seems like it's working way to hard to be funny with mostly non-funny moral lessons and actors more suited to portraying the world's most villainous crime gang.

Hancock (2008) [PG-13]-- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $13.75
Review-lite: The real Will Smith is back to the form everyone had grown to assume would come with each and every celebration of the 4th of July as superwash-up Hancock. In this highly allegorical story with taps ancient and new mythology, we watch the emergence of a true hero from a misguided, somewhat misanthropic character under the guidance of an image consultant (Jason Bateman as Ray Embrey) who has a life-changing experience the day Hancock saves his life. Shy of the greatness that was Iron Man, Hancock nonetheless lives up to expectations of a great action hero adventure with the added dimensions of more heart and more mystery.

Meet Dave (2008) [PG]-- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $13.25
Review-lite: With this engaging cast including Eddie Murphy (who's back in the game), Gabrielle Union, Elizabeth Banks, Scott Caan, and Pat Kilbane; great effects, an awesomely creative story, and some important life lessons, Brian Robbins's Meet Dave blasted away all expectations. While it's true the film might have fit better into the late 80s early 90s, for those of us still nostalgic about a time when comedic movies meant something more than just how many times a moron can swear in a single sentence, how many illegal situations a couple of idiotic, pre-pubescent teenagers can get into in 30 minutes, or who can create the grossest gross out scene ever concocted and then put on film sometimes even writing the entire script so that it can lead up to this monstrosity of unnecessary curiosity, it's time to Meet Dave.

Space Chimps (2008) [G]-- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $11.50
Review-lite: Give Space Chimps a chance. Co-writer / director Kirk De Micco utilizes a good 1960s-ish story and style in this CGI-animated film about chimps sent into space as guinea pigs before human crews to discover what happened to a missing space probe. Adventure for the chimps on a new planet ensues. Maybe less humorous than other animated comedies, the stories many morality plays more than make up for it.

Wanted (2008) [R]-- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $14.00
Review-lite: Russian director Timur Bekmambetov ignites the Hollywood screen with this adaptation of the Wanted comic book series into an action-charged, Fight Club for the 2000s. The brilliant cast including James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie, and Morgan Freeman dazzle from open to twist of fate closing moments. It's Hitman, Die Hard 4, DaVinci Code, and the Bourne series all rolled into one, but with more comedy and more Matrix. If you don't love it, you don't have a pulse and must think life in a cubicle is grand. (click for full details and complete review)
