Regarding: Once Upon a Time in Mexico
Matt: Robert Rodriguez continues to make movies the only way he knows how, and we're all the better for it. This one's pretty violent, but fun to watch. Three stars.
Aron: I liked it, too. Not a four star film, but definitely fun to watch. Three stars.
Average Rating: Three Stars (out of four)
Regarding: Matchstick Men
Aron: Wow! What a wonderful film! The acting was superb all around and the story was excellent to boot. I predict this film will have lots of staying power this fall. Four stars!
Matt: I liked it, too. I thought Nicolas Cage was a tad over the top, but Alison Lohman should be remembered come Oscar time for her wonderful performance. A fun way to spend a Friday evening. Three stars.
Average Rating: Three and a half stars (out of four)
