Fast Lucas. Crazy Kyra. Puffy Keanu.

Lucas Black: banking on more public attention now that Jake Gyllenhaal isn't
dancing naked w/ a santa hat as his co-star. That was pretty hard to compete with.

In Multiplexes (links go to trailers/sites)
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift Is it just me or is it racist/annoying that even when movies have Tokyo in the title, Asian actors still can't get lead roles. Argh!
Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties I am a cat lover. I love the fuzzy felines even when they're hateful. I still would never see this. Argh!
The Lake House Keanu and Sandra are making me feel old because they suddenly look all middle aged and puffy. Argh!
Nacho Libre Surprisingly this is the only option that does not provoke an immediate "Argh!" And that makes me feel...well... Argh!

Notice the tilted camera angle. It signifies tension. Something is terribly wrong.
Nice directorial touch courtesy of Kevin Bacon. Very subtle !!!

Limited Release
Loverboy Kyra Sedgwick w/ a few screws loose.
The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green Remember Camp? That film's main cocktease takes on lead gay duties here. Just the poster alone makes me feel flabby. So, er...
Only Human Norma Aleandro (hmmmm) in an "eccentric" family comedy. So hard to tell about foreign films from their trailers.
Wordplay A documentary about crossword puzzles with cameos from celebs like Jon Stewart and Bill Clinton. Remember when Michelle Pfeiffer played a crossword puzzle writer in The Story of Us. No? Well she did. I'm like a Encyclopfeiffia.

What will you be doing/seeing this weekend?

I was just watching a relatively new Norma Aleandro picture the other day, "Cleopatra". What a terrific performance! If this woman was American she'd be nommed as often as Meryl Streep.

All these gay rom-coms need to stop, I tell you! I always watch them (I'm such a sucker for skin) and I am always disappointed!

Oh god I hated Camp. But that lead guy was hot. Why did they name him Vlad though? That's stupid. As was the whole "we're putting on a huge show" and all we saw was one musical number. Aagh!
