Most Read

- Toy Story 3:

This was Pixar’s second delight of 2010 and it starts with an inspired setpiece involving a train chase.

Later Woody, Buzz and pals plan a great escape but while there are the usual high jinks there is much poignancy too as the toys say farewell to their owner as he heads off to college.

- Up in the Air:

If this is a comedy drama the balance is more on the drama, but it is still an involving piece of work allowing George Clooney to take flight as a corporate down-sizer, jetting off to break the bad news.

- It’s Complicated:

Lovely turns from Alec Baldwin, Meryl Streep and Steve Martin in a comedy of mixed-up middle-agers. The party drug scene is a hoot.
