Is "3:10 to Yuma" poised to break into the Best Picture race?  You might think so now that several reviews have rolled in (there was a nationwide sneak peek last night - - I missed it).  Sasha Stone at Awards Daily writes, "I feel like 3:10 snuck up on me. Maybe because I spend too much time online trolling for the "early word" on films I missed out on what was coming. Like The Departed last year, 3:10 seems to have come out of nowhere and absolutely knocked my socks off."  David Denby of The New Yorker notes, "James Mangold’s movies include “Cop Land” (1997), “Girl, Interrupted” (1999), and “Walk the Line” (2005), and this is by far his most sustained and evocative work." 

Owen Glieberman of Entertainment Weekly writes positively about Russell Crowe, "Russell Crowe's career may have hit a speed bump, but I'm still convinced he's the star of our time. He makes masculine anger noble, investing it with the black-hat mystique of someone who has grown wise by doing ignoble things. It's that saint/bruiser complexity that's so commanding."

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
