About Alex
Every generation needs a couple of reunion movies, and in “About Alex," we have another one: first-time writer-director Jesse Zwick doesn't so much swing for the fences as attempt to dribble a single down the baseline. This comedy-drama doesn't reach any untold heights, but with formula pictures like this, you can only hope the company is pleasant. With this cast, those meager expectations are reached.

Even though MTV doesn't play them anymore, music videos are still being made, mainly thanks to the interwebs because a well made video can still make rounds and get in front of as many eyes as anything in heavy rotation in the olden days. With that it mind, we've got a couple that are worth your attention.

There is nothing better to have in Hollywood than options, and Aussie helmer and Blue Tongue Films collective member Kieran Darcy-Smith is learning that lesson. The actor arrived at Sundance earlier this year with his debut feature, "Wish You Were Here," and while not exactly a breakout hit, it seems to have provided more than enough momentum to get some projects set up. He's already slated to helm a segment of the omnibus "Sydney Unplugged," this fall he lined up the thriller "By Way Of Helena" and he's got an untitled romance kicking around as well. Now comes another project and should all the chips fall into place, it will be his next.

Just the other day we were wondering when they were going to finish rounding out the cast for Alexandre Aja's adaptation of Joe Hill's wonderfully unsettling novel "Horns." Well, today seems to be that day, as The Wrap is reporting Juno Temple, Joe Anderson and Kelli Garner have now joined Daniel Radcliffe and Max Minghella in the cast. That's a spookily good line-up.

Max Minghella, the talented young actor from "The Social Network" and "Art School Confidential" (talk about a movie that's been universally forgotten) and son of late director Anthony Minghella, has entered into talks to costar in Alexandre Aja's supernatural thriller "Horns," opposite the former Boy Who Lived, Daniel Radcliffe (according to a report in Variety). The production is set to begin later this fall, and will be financed by Red Granite Pictures (which will also handle foreign sales) and Mandalay Pictures.

Let's look at this as the good, the bad and the ugly. Max Minghella, the son of the late Anthony Minghella, is in early negotiations to join the 20th Century Fox comedy, "The Internship." The good: it's a film written by Vince Vaughn, and it reunites Vaughn with his "Wedding Crashers" co-star Owen Wilson. The bad: Neither of them have been as good since that now undisputed modern comedy classic film arrived in 2005 (Though Vaughn's "The Break-Up" is very underrated). The relatively ugly (or to be fair, slightly unfortunate): It's directed by Shawn Levy, the rather toothless filmmaker behind MOR hits like “Just Married,” “Cheaper By The Dozen” the 2006 version of “The Pink Panther” whose career unexpectedly took off after his back to back “Night Of The Museum” films became major hits (he then helmed "Date Night" and "Real Steel").

Review: There's A Reason You Didn't Know Alien Invasion Pic 'The Darkest Hour' Was Already In Theaters

In post-apocalyptic movies, it’s tough to know whether concentrated ensembles, empty cities and unpopulated streets are a sign of terrific production design or low-budget shortcutting. In either case, there’s a distinct absence of both extras and ideas in “The Darkest Hour,” a mediocre bit of holiday counterprogramming whose novelty value is limited to its Russian locale and the idea that even a handful of genuinely talented young actors could inject some life into a derivative, uninspired, anemic alien-invasion movie.

TIFF '11 Review: 'Ten Year' Brings Together A Strong Cast For A Mixed Bag Of Comedy & Drama

Births, funerals, marriage, anniversaries and even annual vacations have all served as plot devices in the reunion film, a genre that usually finds middle-aged or older characters dealing with a crisis that is exacerbated by seeing old family and friends. And while "Ten Year" certainly isn't breaking new territory, producer and star Channing Tatum, along with writer/director Jamie Linden ("Dear John"), do take an interesting approach. Wisely not going far beyond their own age bracket, this film brings together a pretty solid ensemble cast of some of the best up-and-coming actors working right now for a tale that catches up with a gaggle of friends for a reunion -- you guessed it -- ten years after their graduation from high school. Taking on a bunch of characters as they leave their twenties is definitely a smart concept but instead of offering what could have been an honest look at contemporary soon-to-be thirtysomethings and the challenges, fears and triumphs they have endured, "Ten Year" delivers a mixed bag of CW plots that at worst are cliché and predictable, with a very few that do stand out.
