After a week off recovering from falling off his bicycle, the Culture Maven returns with a few new film reviews.  The French coming of age movie Something In the Air gets positive acclaim, as do a pair of “summer films”:  buddy cop movie The Heat and the stupid-but-enjoyable White House Down.

The Maven and Films from Opposite Ends of the Serious Scale

c.d. starts off dealing with mushy seats in his vehicle.  He then switches gears to a talkathon but a rewarding trip to the movies…Before Midnight.   At the other end of the seriousness scale…he was surprised at how much he enjoyed Seth Rogen’sThis Is The End.
