Movies: "Midnight in Paris"

Movies:  "Midnight in Paris"

 

For movie lovers, here’s a charming little palate cleanser between the main courses of summer blockbusters.  No alien invaders, no explosions, no gunplay -- just a romantic trip to the Paris of today and yesterday, courtesy of writer/director Woody Allen.

 

I have to tell you that I had pretty much given up on the Woodman in recent years.  His later movies seemed too whiny, too obsessed with toffee-nosed Brits (“Match Point” looked like it was shot through the window of a Ralph Lauren boutique), too misanthropic.  And let’s face it, Woody’s private life was nothing to write home about.

Those are the first clues to the cleverly plotted “Super 8,” my pick for the best popcorn movie of the summer.

The mighty Marvel megaplex money machine marches on.  With “Thor” still in theaters and “Captain America” waiting in the wings, the Marvel megalith rolls out what may turn out to be the best comic book movie this summer, a prequel titled “X-Men: First Class.”

 

Directed by Matthew Vaughan, whose previous movie “Kick-Ass” was really a comic book spoof enlivened by a dirty-mouthed tweener, the new “X-Men” is lighter fare than its four predecessors, an entertaining marriage of James Bond thriller and superhero fantasy.
