  • Aliens invade but E'town native misses the ride

    “Battle Los Angeles” hit theaters over the weekend, but unfortunately it was missing Elizabethtown native Amy Dudgeon. Her scene was cut from the final edit of the film.

    The film follows a group of Marines as they engage technically advanced alien invaders while trying to evacuate a few citizens from hostile territory in Los Angeles. Most of the film is filled with doom and gloom as the aliens seek to wipeout mankind for our resources.

  • More adjustments needed to this film

    As a reviewer, I have to separate my personal feelings about a film from the review and critique it based on the film’s quality, or lack there of.

    In saying that, I will be upfront and admit I have philosophical and theological problems with some concepts in “The Adjustment Bureau” and the film’s view on deity.

    But looking past that, “The Adjustment Bureau” has entertainment value and a convincing performance by Matt Damon (“True Grit”).
