Led by Jason Bateman and Tina Fey, the cast does a good job with bringing out the wacky family dynamics of the Altman family when they reconvene in their family home after the death of their father. There are clichéd and unrealistic moments which took away from the good parts of the film - an easy chemistry amongst the cast, some funny and heartwarming moments - but that said, "This is Where I Leave You" is a great fall flick to be entertained by.

It was neither a bad or great movie, just decent enough. Rickman and Stanley Tucci came across as versions of other characters they have played. And was it just me, or were there a lot of Kate-in-Titanic references?

Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick, and Jacki Weaver are brilliant in "The Voices." The vision is truly executed to perfection by Marjane Satrapi, whose previous works are unlike this, and Michael Perry. I look forward to its release to entertain and fright viewers.

Benedict Cumberbatch is intriguing to watch on-screen as Turing, bringing the intelligence, the social awkwardness, and the vulnerability, to life. "The Imitation Game" is quite the Oscar-bait and willingly be baited, an Oscar will.

It's also a steady and suspenseful mind game played on the characters in the film and the audience alike. Bruce Greenwood and Catherine Keener were excellent in their roles, adding just as much intrigue to the plot as does Dolan's character and circumstances.
