9 10 2009

The second weekend of October brings us only one wide release, and its not Where The Wild Things Are, so I don’t care. Blissfully, there are a couple of pretty good choices in limited release to whet your appetites. Your weekend preview after the jump.

Weekend Preview: Cloudy With a Chance of Informants

18 09 2009

Finally, after weeks and weeks of waiting, we finally have a weekend with some good movies coming out. Too bad they had to be soiled by a run-of-the-mill romantic comedy and a crappy teen horror flick. Your weekend preview after the jump.

Weekend Preview: It’s A Good Time To Be A Basterd

21 08 2009

Earlier this week, Tarantino was making a huff, saying that today was meant to be Inglourious Basterds day, not Avatar day. Count on him to stop complaining when everyone who has gone to the movies to see Avatar decides to stick around for a screening of his film.
