<---Ciao I really meant to write about this rather unusual gay film which is about the hesitant meeting between a grieving man and his late best friend's would be lover. Damn. Perhaps tomorrow I'll buckle down, stop blogging and start churning out reviews proper. Hey, stop snickering out there at your computer.
Let Them Chirp Awhile an indie relationship comedy about 20somethings in NYC
Frost / Nixon Ron Howard hits a middlebrow bulls-eye of a sort. I think the subject matter and source material, a compressed look at David Frost's historic 1970s television interview with disgraced ex-president 'tricky Dick' is straightforward enough that it's hard to mess up. Entertaining if not particularly resonant... I probably wouldn't even include that modifier but for the abundant Oscar nominations it will soon receive, thereby giving it a lasting place in history which is, you know, overdoing it
Black Balloon An Aussie film which Glenn @ Stale Popcorn has been covering a bit about a teenager with a mentally disable brother whose family has relocated. With Toni Collette, Rhys Wakefield and Gemma Ward.
Milk Another one I keep meaning to write about. You know what it's about. Is it in your city yet? If not probably next week when it expands again.
Cadillac Records Beyoncé plays/sings Etta James in this musical set in 1950s Chicago. I hear it's TV movie ish but hopefully the music alone makes a ticket worthwhile. Adrien Brody, Jeffrey Wright and Gabrielle Union.
Nobel Son A kidnapping comedy/thriller with an all star cast which happens to be the sophomore effort from Bottle Shock director Randall Miller. Starring Alan Rickman, Mary Steenburgen, Bill Pullman, Shawn Hatosy, and Danny DeVito. But can we talk for a minute about Bryan Greenberg (the kidnapee) ...first he gets to bed Uma Thurman in Prime and now he gets nookie from Eliza Dushku? What did he do to deserve this?
Punisher: War Zone Ray Stevenson takes over for Thomas Jane in the role of the vengeful antihero. Will people care? I mean... more than they did the first time?
How is/was your weekend?
