Premonition. I have a premonition that audiences won't care if it sucks. When was the last time Sandra Bullock headlined a good movie? 12, 13 years? In regards to the film's poster, I direct you to this giggle from Andy Scott.
Dead Silence another gore flick. There are so many every year did time fold back in on itself? Is it the early 80s again?
I Think I Love My Wife wasn't this a show on HBO or something --The Mind of a Married Man? Filmmakers never get tired of stories about philandering husbands and the wives who won't have sex with them. There are two possible reasons to see this though. The first is obvious: Kerry Washington strutting around deliciously. The second is less obvious: This is supposedly based on Eric Rohmer's Chloe in the Afternoon. That blows my mind. Eric Rohmer. Chris Rock. What?
I realize I need to just let this go but I hate hate hate the enduring distribution model used on prestige flicks. I want to see films WHEN they're winning awards or being considered for awards, not years later (unless I'm catching up with classics). Denmark's 2005 Oscar submission Adam's Apples is opening (starring my two favorite Danish actors Ulrich Thomsen and Nikolaj Lie Kaas), Kazakahstan's 2006 submission Nomad (with American stars like Jason Scott Lee and Jay Hernandez) is also charging in. And we're finally getting a look at The Wind That Shakes the Barley which won Cannes' top honor nearly a year ago. Aren't people already talking about this year's festival?) I'll never understand why movie distribution isn't sympatico with the time tested lucrative business & life advice "strike while the iron is hot"
Also in limited release: urban drama My Brother with Vanessa Williams and Tatum O'Neal, a pseudo doc called American Cannibal: The Road to Reality which sounds a bit like Series 7: The Contenders in that reality show gone too far way, a meta horror movie called Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon , Caffeine, an ensemble comedy with Katherine Heigl (whose fame level could skyrocket this year if the delirious buzz on Knocked Up pans out), Mena Suvari and Breckin Myer. Finally there's a comedy with Lupe Ontiveros (remember her?) called Tortilla Heaven.
