Two movies you may want to see, one you will not.

You may want to see: Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Staying true to its stick figures and hilarity, Diary of Wimpy Kid delves into the area of prepubescent angst and confusion in regards to Greg Heffley, who just so happens to be starting his first year of junior high.

Complete with trials brought on from Greg's selfishness and egotistical ways, and yes, the infamous "cheese touch" the message from Jeff Kinney's hugely popular children’s book series avoids overstating its message while offering laughs.

You may not want to see: Chloe

Whatever one can muster as implausible and ridiculous, whatever one could contrive as relentless predictability and haplessness, it must have brought to fruition an utter waste of film called Chloe. Starring Julianne Moore as Catherine Stewart, a wife who suspects her flirtatious husband is having an affair, Chloe ruins itself from the start, and consumes one hour and thirty six minutes of your life, failing in its attempt to shock or surprise; even the presence of a talented cast could not save Chloe from ruin. Liam Neeson (David Stewart) and Amanda Seyfried offer up roles that could have offered an intriguing and insightful look into the realm of sexual fantasy and self revelation.

You may want to see: The Ghost Writer

Roman Polanski's trademark cynicism and paranoia mark this quiet thriller, and returns Polanski to his usual formula.

The Ghost Writer, Starring Ewan McGregor (The Ghost) and Pierce Brosnan (Adam Lang) revel within a dark, slowly moving plot that poses a multitude of questions through tightly constructed narrative scenes, It is 2010's thinking man, (and woman's) film.

Catch Chloe and Ghost Writer at Midtown Cinema http://www.midtowncinema.com. Diary of a Wimpy Kid is currently playing at many local multiplexes.

SIDE NOTE: just a note to all of my readers, and those who may follow me on twitter and facebook. You may have noticed the scarcity in regards to my film reviews as of late; well, there is a reason, and of course, one that I'm happy to report. I just recently found out that my second novel, The Time of Their Lives in London (written under my pseudonym P.H. Edward) will be published this year under Hilliard and Harris publishers. I'd like to thank all those who have supported me through the journey, and I hope that my voice as a fiction writer is one that you will enjoy reading as well. I will keep my readers and followers posted on when the novel will officially be set for release along with my new website highlighting my accomplishments as a writer in general. Again, thanks to all of you.

Now, go see a movie!

P.H.
