The Other Guys

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg star in a very funny police/buddy comedy.
This is not the type of movie where I would expect any shaky cam, but... there was actually some unexpectedly over-the-top shaky cam car chases. They were completely unwatchable for me. However, these represented only small portions of an unotherwise unshaky flick - so by mutual agreement we decided to give this movie a shaky cam rating of C.
On a side note - I was very appreciative of the social conscience extro animations to the tune (at least some of time) of a labour movement song.

Star Trek 2009

I am a trekkie and I wanted so badly to be able to watch this movie. We went on opening night, had decent seats, had a babysitter - everything was perfect. Initially I hoped the shakiness would be temporary (or even limited to action scenes), but after enduring almost a half hour of nausea, I went home. On this basis, I would give the movie an F - however, since I was unable to watch the entire thing, I feel this may be unfair. Maybe there was blissful stability beyond the 1 hour mark? I will never know.
