Last week David DiCerto and I wrapped up our fourth summer season of “Reel Faith” with reviews of Lee Daniels’ The Butler and Elysium, looking back over the best and worst films of summer and ahead to the coming fall season.

Our season finale aired Friday at 8pm, and will be available soon on the show’s website. At this writing it’s not too late to catch the previous episode, in which we review Disney’s Planes, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and We’re The Millers.

If you’ve enjoyed “Reel Faith,” or our 60 second reviews, please stop by the show’s Facebook page and like us!

Meanwhile, enjoy the latest 60 second reviews. (For more 60s, including The Wolverine, 2 Guns and Smurfs 2, see my last post.)

Lee Daniels’s The Butler (DD)

One quiet voice can ignite a revolution … but it doesn’t necessarily.

Elysium (SDG)

District 9 director Neil Blomkamp is back with another sci-fi tale of oppressors and oppressed … but this time the oppressed have Matt Damon.

Disney’s Planes (SDG)

From above the world of Cars comes an unassuming little spinoff that flies circles around Turbo and Cars 2.

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (DD)

Man, these kids are growing up fast.
