The Baxter- dissapointing parody of the romantic comedy genre starring Michael Showalter with Paul Rudd,Micheal Ian Black and others.Basically a Baxter is the guy women settle for when they don't snag Prince Charming- this premise was done better in Steve Martin's 80's flick The Lonely Guy . Imagine watching a comedy waiting for the punchline- a few chuckles aside that was the Baxter . D

The Island - stuff got blowed up real good - well not really- but Micheal Bay and his ilk think that explosions will take the place of good story telling- the idea behind the movie is interesting- a population of clones kept in reserve for their sponsors- but the execution and the over abundance of people yelling "Run" and stuff exploding took the soul out of this movie- and the concept is not all that new- just a mix of Logan's Run, Bladerunner & The Running Man- skip this unless you just absolutely need to see Scarlett Johannsen or Ewan McGregor in a tight white jumpsuit. D-

Genisis fun nature documentary about life and nature and whatnot- fun for a rental if you life biology stuff B-
