Nothing exciting to report today. Working on two reviews (AMERICAN GANGSTER and BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU'RE DEAD) which will be up sometime this week.
Computer problems at the apartment will limit postings for the next few weeks it seems.
The Writer's Guild strike has quieted the town...oh well...all I can say is that, thankfully, it a'int my problem nor does it affect my entertainment-related job.
THERE WILL BE BLOOD screened last night in San Francisco and the response was beyond ecstatic. Sounds like another masterpiece from Paul Thomas Anderson.
FRED CLAUS, the new Christmas comedy with Vince Vaughn, has been utterly lambasted by Variety and The Hollywood Reporter; not surprised as it looks like complete shite.
NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, the new Coen Brothers thriller, opens in NY/LA this weekend; my plan is to see it Saturday or Sunday.
Major hottie Jennifer Connolly has joined Keannu Reeves in the Fox remake THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL. I happen to think it's beyond lame that this 1950's sci-fi masterpiece is getting the big-budget remake treatment, especially with a questionable director (Scott Derrickson, THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE) at the helm.
The early word on Bob Zemeckis's 3-D version of BEOWULF has been staggering; sounds like an absolute must-see for anyone who even remotely enjoys the possibilities of cinema.
That's all I got at the moment...
