I can understand people disagreeing with Michael Moore's political beliefs, but his talent as a documentary filmmaker is unquestioned. This is a man who knows exactly how to move an audience. His latest, Capitalism: A Love Story, deals with the thieves that populate our financial industry. If all you are looking for are some good laughs, buck up and a buy a ticket to I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell (LAist review here). I think you'll like it more than you expect. Sheesh, could Surrogates look any more obvious and silly? Pass.

I'm getting a bit of a David Cronenberg vibe from Pandorum. That plus Dennis Quaid plus Ben Foster plus Norman Reedus equals me going. Did we really need a reboot of Fame? Didn't the first one, you know, blow? Clive Owen stakes his Oscar claim with the weepy The Boys are Back. Personally, I'd take more Croupier and Shoot 'Em Up. Even if you aren't a Coco Chanel fan, Coco Before Chanel (LAist review here) does have Audrey Tatou (an infinitely better actress when speaking in her native French).
