This week on What the Flick, I join critics Christy Lemire (AP, Ebert Presents At the Movies) and Alonso Duralde (The Wrap, Linoleum Knife podcast) to review the latest from Justin Timberlake, Johnny Depp, and Dreamworks Animation.


In Time

Christy, Alonso and I are all pretty lukewarm on In Time. We’re a little more positive than most critics, but we all feel like it drops the ball on an otherwise intriguing premise.


The Rum Diary

Christy and I talk about Johnny Depp’s latest turn in a Hunter S. Thompson adaption. We both think it’s OK, but it could have been better.


Puss in Boots

Christy and Alonso review Puss in Boots on their own, because I hadn’t seen the film when we taped this. But they’re mostly positive on it, while I mostly sit quietly and lend moral support. (Also, this clip is slightly NSFW, due to me swearing about 3D once or twice).

We’ll be back with a new batch of reviews next week, and in the meantime, you can see the archive of What the Flick!? reviews here.
