Can I just point out that JANUARY IS ALMOST OVER! How did that happen?
Milk - Gus Van Sant's retelling of Harvey Milk's life. My full review within the coming days, but it is very good indeed.
The Spirit - Not that you'd know it, but this movie directed by Frank Miller and starring Samuel L Jackson, Scarlett Johansson and Eva Mendes is out this week.
er... apparently there are no new releases for DVD this week. What's up? Did they anticipate a heat wave and expect people would rather go to the beach? DOES NOT COMPUTE!
