Quarterly film roundup - January to March 2010

Up In The Air **** - A masterfully understated performance from George Clooney is just one of the highlights of this film. The supporting cast also shine but it's the intelligence and humanity of the story that linger.

It's Complicated ** - In stark contrast to the above, a massively over-the-top performance from both Alec Baldwin and Meryl Streep make this farce completely forgettable.

Memoirs Of A Geisha **** - Sumptous costume drama that manages to be affecting and engrossing.

Happy Feet *** - Fun and timely (in the sense of environmentally aware) animated comedy.

Over The Hedge ** - Zany animation aimed squarely at kids with little to interest more mature viewers.

Coyote Ugly ** - Potentially interesting drama with a good cast, but cannot reach the heights to which it aspires.
