Highly Recommended: "Death At a Funeral"
Don't miss Death at a Funeral. This new film is a genuine farce packed with coincidental, preposterous, irreverent and hilarious story lines that achieves a consistency of laugh-out-loud jokes even with no sex, no violence and a welcome absence of offensive slurs. Plus a memorable turn by Serenity veteran Alan Tudyk. Also highly recommended is Stardust, a lovely fantasy based on Neil Gaiman's novel about a boy who finds a fallen star incarnate. Avoid The Bourne Ultimatum, a tedious mess burdened with headache-inducing camera angles and a plot that's impossible to follow even for those who paid attention during Bourne 1 and 2.
