    Sausage Party

    ★★★½

    Was looking for something short and funny to watch on a Saturday night with my 11yo daughter. We landed on this, as the certification said 12 (in Norway). In hindsight, maybe not the most proper choice (the orgy was a bit awkward, and I discovered the MPAA had rated it R). But we laughed quite a bit, and she thought it was good.

    The Avengers

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Wow, Joss Wheadon! This was supposed to be the culmination of Thor, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk and the Iron Man movies. All in all a pretty impressive roster. You had one job, Joss; bring them together, with your usual kick-ass script, make it appear as effortless and seamless as water flowing down hill. In short, make it AWESOME!

    What happened, Joss?

    The Avengers come off as a jigsaw puzzle where the pieces (i.e. the previous movies) don't really fit…

    Buchanan Rides Alone

    ★★★
