Genre: Fact-Based Drama
Director: Lee Daniels (The Paperboy)
Starring: Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence HowardThe Story: Fact-based drama about the man who served as White House butler from Ike to Reagan. The Lowdown: Lee Daniels feels constrained with a PG-13 rating, but his film still resonates with honest emotion and solid filmmaking that manages to pack more than 80 years of story into two hours without feeling rushed.
Genre: Musical Comedy
Director: Robert Altman
Starring: Robin Williams, Shelley Duvall, Ray Walston, Paul Dooley, Paul L. Smith, Richard LibertiniIn Brief: Robert Altman's big-budgeted, live-action take on Popeye pulls off the not inconsiderable feat of being both true to the character from the old Max Fleischer cartoons, while being slyly revisionist in the bargain. Jules Feiffer's screenplay — and Robin Williams' ad-libbing — really catches the spirit of the title character, while Altman effortlessly makes the equivalent of a cartoon with live actors. Harry Nilsson's charmingly rather shapeless songs capture the tone.
