Easy A/Red Double Feature

Yesterday I caught a couple movies I’ve been meaning to see for awhile.  First up was Superbad alum Emma Stone in her first starring vehicle Easy A.  The film could have been a cloying, unwatchable high school girl coming-of-age piece of fluff in the hands of a lesser actress.  But Emma Stone has charisma to spare and carries the film with gusto.  I think Stone is going to ascend to greater heights than the date-night rom-com plateaus of Katherine Heigl and Kate Hudson.  This girl who is going to be a big star.  After Easy A I snuck into Red, the CIA-retiree action flick starring Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, and John Malkovich.  Red was a fun mix of action, thrills, and dry humor.  The actors seem like they’re having a good time with the over-the-top material and I enjoyed it despite some pretty implausible action sequences.  Karl Urban (Eomer from LOTR and Bones McCoy from the Star Trek reboot) has a standout performance as a CIA agent with orders to take Bruce Willis out.  I like this guy, I hope he gets some better starring roles than Pathfinder.  Ugh.
