"Ted"
A grown man must deal with his cherished childhood toy.
"Ted" works because Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and all of the non-Hasbro-created cast members treat the story seriously.
Because they don't question a world where a teddy bear can come to life, it's easier for the audience to accept the concept and just laugh at the pull-no-punches humor.
Grade: A-
"The Bourne Legacy"
The series continues with a new hero (Jeremy Renner), whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films.
For a film franchise that's going through a rebirth, "Bourne Legacy" looks a lot closer to retirement age. The film moves slowly with a convoluted plot, uninspired action scenes and too many people babbling scientific and spy jargon. This is not the legacy the series deserves.
Grade: C
