Coming Attractions

As the work week begins (well, your work week... I work Friday through Tuesday, but that's neither here nor there), here's a look ahead at some stuff you can expect to see in the upcoming days:
  • Theatrical review of Francis Ford Coppola's latest, Tetro, which looks really intriguing. And I guess the guy's done a good picture or two.
  • A Blu-ray review of a movie I've never heard of called Night Train, starring Danny Glover (who's getting too old for this shit), Steve Zahn, and Leelee Sobieski. It's apparently a straight-to-disc situation, but the trailer looks intriguing, and the last time Zahn and Leelee made a movie, it was Joy Ride (aka Paul Walker's Only Watchable Movie Ever).

  • Also on Blu-ray: Two Lovers, the supposedly-good movie that Joaquin Phoenix was "promoting" when he was doing all his craaaaaaay shenanigans a few months back. It also has Gwyneth Paltrow in it, YET I'M STILL GOING TO WATCH IT. Is there nothing I won't do for my art?

  • I'll explore the void between the four stars of Roger Ebert and the "this blows, just like all of Nicolas Cage's movies" of everyone else when I check out the Blu-ray of Knowing.

  • Monty Python's Terry Jones apparently did some hour-long history/comedy specials for British television, which have been collected on the inventively-titled Terry Jones Collection. So I'll give those a look.

  • Oh, and don't tell anyone, but I'm probably seeing Bruno this week. I won't write it up until release dates so as not to violate all those press embargoes and whatnot, but watch the Twitter for my first-blush (perhaps literally) thoughts.

So keep reading. IT WILL BE FUN.
