Just three notable releases this week, none of which earned much more than faint praise from us. Stick around, though. Number 18 in the 20 Best Seasons of the Last 20 Years will be up shortly.

The Counterfeiters: The winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign language pic, this year, The Counterfeiters received a middling review from Phillip, who writes that the movie “is a bit too interesting without enough of anything else,” concluding that “with its notable production and fine acting,” the movie “paints an interesting portrait, but never an enthralling one.”

Nim’s Island: Of the Jodie Foster / Abigail Breslin family film, Agent Bedhead reviewed the movie as a mother: “As a parent, I find it difficult to really dislike a film that is geared towards young girls and doesn’t feature its female protagonists wearing revealing clothing while applying impossibly shiny lip gloss and chatting on their cell phones. So, although Nim’s Island is a tediously paced affair involving a trio of main characters who spend most of their onscreen time trying to find each other, this children’s film does have its merits.

Starship Troopers 3: We have no review to offer up, nor will we, in all likelihood, but we thought you might want to know that the third movie in the Starship Troopers franchise was released, straight to DVD, today. It stars Casper Van Dien and Jolene Blalock, and is directed by the guy who wrote Robocop and its sequels (as well as the Anaconda sequel). We have no doubt it’s a winner!

In fact, the trailer proves once again why it’s impossible to intentionally create an unintentionally funny movie.
