SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD As our incessant Pilgrim-centric blogging might've indicated over the past few weeks, we kind of love it. But not everyone does, and it's going to be interesting to see how people of different ages and interests react to the film. (For a semi-local microcosm of what I'm talking about, check out the reviews in the Oregonian, the Willamette Week, the Stranger, and ye olde Tri-City Herald.)

EAT PRAY LOVE A literary and cinematic atrocity. Your mom will love it.

THE EXPENDABLES At a few points, Stallone's latest lives up to its promise of being a sort of cinematic greatest-hits album, one that mashes up all the best and worst parts of overblown '80s action movies. But all in all, you're probably better off just rewatching the most recent Rambo.

GET LOW Robert Duvall's still killing it.

BREATHLESS Jean-Luc Godard's classic, back on the big screen. Go.

More, as ever, in our Film Shorts and Movie Times.
