Climaxed by the very last scene which is damn too hard to swallow, The Magdalene Sisters is a horrid portrayal of young women forced into slavery, in laundry facilities. I was praying while watching that the entire thing is fictional, but it appears it's a true story, as evidenced by the who-ended-up-where that is typical of such.

Hunted's cinematography and production design make it look like some made-for-tv fare; The first scene really sucks and the hand-to-hand battling isn't as impressive as on 1st look.

There's a painful mini-twist in Up In the Air; Vera Farmiga, playing a fuck buddy, is desirable while at the same time exuding maturity and wisdom; the opening credits sequence is pretty good, and so is the sound.
