- Brave premiered this week with a 68 score on Metacritic, a positive assessment but low on the scale for a Pixar film.
- Woody Allen's To Rome with Love opened to luke-warm reviews, picking up a 55 on Metacritic. Most critics agree that it is a major fall-off from last year's Oscar winning Midnight in Paris.
- Madagascar 3 has had 2 strong weekends, and so far is outpacing the first 2 films in the franchise. That may be enough to get it into the conversation for a Best Animated Feature nomination.
- Oscar-nominated actress Susan Tyrell died this week at the age of 67. She was nominated for Supporting Actress in 1972 for Fat City.
