The Dark Knight - There's not really much to say about this one, is there? I'm planning on seeing it tomorrow night and cannot wait. Although, in regards to Heath Ledger, it's actually quite disappointing to see his performance being lauded as the best thing he ever did. Are they already forgetting Brokeback Mountain - the best male performance of the decade so far - or is it because The Dark Knight is a masculine movie and, thus, it's better by default for so many of the film community? We'll see...
Salute & Wild Ocean 3D
The only films willing to open opposite The Dark Knight - rare, there's usually even a moderately profiled arthouse film opposite the biggest of blockbuster fare - are these two documentaries. Salute is an Australian doco about Olympian Peter Norman who was involved in one the Olympics' most controversial passages - the Black Power Salute. Wild Ocean 3D is another IMAX doco about animals. I know.
Blonde and Blonder - Just a couple of weeks back we had Blonde Ambition with Jessica Simpson, and now this with Pamela Anderson and Denise Richards.
Chapter 27 - Direct-to-DVD biopic of sorts about Mark David Chapman, the man who assassinated John Lennon. Stars Jared Leto as Chapman, Lindsay Lohan and - in one of those bizarre "did they realise that at the time?" - an actor named Mark Lindsay Chapman playing John Lennon. I am not making that up! They got an actor named Mark Lindsay Chapman who portray a man who got killed by a man named Mark David Chapman. !!!!
Closing the Ring - A modest period flick from Richard Attenborough starring Shirley MacLaine and Mischa Barton as the same character 50 years apart. Yeah, I chuckled too.
The Hottie and the Nottie - Yeah, okay. Whatever.
Joy Division - Doco about these iconic musicians.
Mister Lonely - Not too sure about this one. It sounds Q-U-I-R-K-Y (Michael Jackson impersonators and the like), but it's gotten good notices. I don't remember this receiving a theatrical release here, which is odd considering it's had a nicely sized indie profile overseas. Stars Diego Luna, Samantha Morton and, oddly, Werner Herzog. I should see it for the cast alone.
Mr Woodcock - I, personally, found it rather amusing that this was released one week and Lars and the Real Girl a week later considering they were both made by the same director.
The Other Boleyn Girl - On DVD where I might actually watch it.
Sports Movie - This title didn't even exist on IMDb and then I discovered it went by the name The Comebacks in America. Wasn't there a Keanu Reeves movie by that name a few years ago? Anyway. It's a dumb sport spoof movie or something. Who cares?
