- The Bounty Hunter
In which Gerard Butler allegedly continues his unbroken streak of awful movies. I say allegedly because I have only heard of (most of) the horrors.
- Brooklyn's Finest
In which the likes of Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, Wesley Snipes and Ethan Hawke get caught up in cops & drugs style complications. From the director of Training Day.
In which Julianne Moore hires hooker Amanda Seyfried for her husband but gets more than she paid for. Oopsie. From auteur Atom Egoyan.
- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
In which Swedish actors like Michael Nyqvist (yay!), Lena Endre (yay!) and Noomi Rapace (wait, who?) act out the allegedly misogynistic international best seller.
- The Greatest
In which Susan Sarandon and Pierce Brosnan are grieving the death of their son when they meet a girl (Carey Mulligan) pregnant with his child. Sounds rather like Moonlight Mile, also starring Susan Sarandon as the grieving mom?
In which Ben Stiller can't deal. From the very talented writer/director Noah Baumbach (Margot at the Wedding, The Squid and the Whale).
- A Single Man
In which Colin Firth grieves his dead lover, considers hitting that (that being Nicholas Hoult) and visits boozy potty mouth Juli.
Previous write ups from this reader request series (my version of DVD on Demand) include Bad Lieutenant, Fantastic Mr Fox, An Education, The Road and Alice in Wonderland. The latter did not actually win a poll but I didn't hold one that week because I knew it would. Doctor Zhivago, The White Ribbon and True Blood Season 2 (which totally tied The Road in its week) still pending. Shut up, they're all really long! We'll take a break from these polls after this one until I get caught up.
