A Haunting in Connecticut gets props for casting the radiant Virginia Madsen (and bad-ass Elias Koteas), but significant demerits for wussying out with a PG-13 rating. Once again -- all horror movies should be rated R! Just like in the good old days! As perhaps the world's biggest (and only) Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller fan, I naturally queued up to see Edge of Love when it briefly played in theaters. The movie's not much, but the bathtub scene with Knightley and Miller is definitely worth the price of a rental. Did anyone else tune out like I did after the first season of Mad Men? Grey Garden offers further proof that Drew Barrymore is perhaps the worst successful actress in the universe. Leverage isn't half-bad. Tim Hutton should work more.

Don't bother buying the new Doors DVD out today. Wait a few months and check out Tom DiCillo's excellent new Doors documentary when it hits theaters. Sure Tony Bourdain is incredibly over-exposed these days, but I still love the gruff old bastard. I say fire Tom Colicchio and hire Tony to do the next Top Chef. For those not in the know, Biggest Bang is not a BBM porn flick. It's actually about the Rolling Stones. So I guess it's a geriatric porn flick. I'm not sure if OC Babes and The Slasher of Zombietown is one movie or two. In any case, I love babes from Orange County and I certainly love zombies, so it's a win-win, right?
