The CFQ crew is back, all rested after their holiday break and ready to tackle the new and exciting fantasy, horror, and science fiction film releases of 2011. But first, there’s GULLIVER’S TRAVELS, the big-budget adaptation of Jonathan Swift’s beloved comic novel, starring Jack Black as the titular traveler — here portrayed (in a stunning departure for Mr. Black) as an affable slacker with an undying love for rock and roll — plus Jason Segel and Emily Blunt as Lilliputian lovers, Chris O’Dowd as Gulliver’s miniature nemesis and, for no plausible reason, a wedgie-dispensing robot. Join Steve Biodrowski, Lawrence French, and Dan Persons as they search for redeeming social value (or any value, frankly) in the last fantasy release of 2010.
