Hollywood 2011 really has their release schedule down to a science thus far, spreading the love around for each tasty, tasty demographic. Those all-important 18-24 males? Why we have some aliens, musclebound dudes and subsequent explosions for you with "Battle: Los Angeles." That delicious teenage disposable income? How about Amanda Seyfried and an RPatz doppelganger sporting anachronistic hair product in a fairy tale setting? "Red Riding Hood" steamy enough for ya? And of course, the animated vehicle that sucks in not only the kids' tickets but mom, dad and nannies as well, in "Mars Needs Moms." Fun for everyone! But, but don't fret my pet! There is some serious quality art cinema out there, like a new flick from a stone-cold, legendary-filmmaker, you have to see this lest you be ridiculed by your cool film friends. So go seek it out! Take a road trip!

Films often live or die with their lead performances. In many movies, lead characters are stoic or passive, and in anchoring the film, people ignore the work lead actors put in over the course of the runtime, grounding the story with a consistency that allows showier supporting actors a chance to stretch. If we were judging “Black Death” on this criteria, then it would be a failure.
