OPENING THIS WEEKEND
Indiana Jones and Remember That Time You Were a Kid?
You already read my review of it. But if you’ve got the stomach be sure to also check out Harry from AICN’s mind blowingly sycophantic 8 jillion word review in which he basically calls it the best thing to happen to the universe since the big bang. “Our childhood dreams captured at 24 frames a second and projected for us to relive laughing, clapping, gasping and shouting enthusiastically for." Some say I shouldn’t be so negative. To those people I say do me a favor and die in a fire. Anyway, the movie’s at least worth seeing so you can make fun of the monkey scene.
The Children of Huang Shi
The movie has “Wang” in the title and was directed by Roger Spottiswoode. I defy you not to giggle at that.
The Edge of Heaven
Critically acclaimed German film about a Turkish girl. The trailer features both guns and skeezy euro hookers. Looks pretty sexy, actually. Also, the music makes me want to dance around my apartment like a Bollywood video.
At least seven of my readers live near a theater where this is playing.
This military-industrial complex satire starring Ben Kingsley, John Cusack and Hillary Duff is probably going to suck, but that’s not going to stop me from continuing to refer to Ben Kingsley as Special K.
