I am definitely looking forward to catching The Other Guys. Not sure if I have time to get to the theater this weekend but I will check it out ASAP. I whole-heartedly love Will Ferrell and his brand of idiocy. I do wish the film was a hard-R spoof of the action-movie genre but it looks playful and silly and amusing. Director Adam McKay hasn't made a bad comedy yet so that helps (his impressive track record includes Anchorman, Talladega Nights, and Step Brothers).
I'd still like to see Dinner for Schmucks, but something tells me I might wait for the Blu Ray. I'm a fan of everyone involved (Carrell and Rudd are terrific), it looks pretty funny (though something tells me it should've been rated R considering the darkly comedic French movie that inspires it), but for some reason, there's nothing pulling me to the theater.
From Netflix is Nicolas Winding Refn's American debut (from a few years ago) Fear X. It's very interesting how Refn started his career in Europe with the Pusher trilogy, then made an American feature, and then bounced back to Europe for a few more films. After the deliriously amazing one-two punch of Bronson and Valhalla Rising, Refn is about to tackle his biggest budget yet with Drive, an extremely cool-sounding neo-noir with Ryan Gosling starring as a Hollywood stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver for bank robbers. How can that NOT be amazing?!
