Wondering which movie to see this weekend?
Every week in Friday's Weekend Ticket section, I review new movies, and I recommend previously released films. Can't wait to see? Well, this feature now appears at 21Q each Thursday afternoon.
My picks among recently released movies:
2 Days in Paris
Julie Delpy , above, with Adam Goldberg, is simply delightful when her character, Marion, fibs to try to save her boyfriendís feelings when he questions her about other men. Sporting a goofy grin, Delpy layers self-consciousness atop deception. Marion knows sheís a bad liar, but she canít stop herself.
This raunchy but sweet picture captures the urgency attached to an end-of-year party and the stress such an event can impose on teens who want this one night to hold all that high school didnít. Itís not surprising that best friends Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) end up bickering when their plans go awry.
The Bourne Ultimatum
Memory-challenged assassin Jason Bourne, an implausible character, compels in large part because of Matt Damonís performance. Resembling a bullet in build and determination, Damonís Bourne will attempt to eradicate all obstacles. He was trained to do so. But the key to his character's appeal is that he doesn't want to be what he is.
