This is the week where everyone mourns the end of The Sopranos, but it was harder for me to let go of Deadwood a few months ago. Sure, there’s supposed to be a couple of Deadwood movies coming to tie everything up, but it’s just not the same. You can have your Tony Soprano, I’ll take the awesome and terrifying Al Swearengen instead. The big release this week is, of course, Ghost Rider. If you thought Nicholas Cage was hilariously awful in Wicker Man (watch this now if you've never seen it!), check out his initial transformation into the Ghost Rider for a signature example of WAY over-the-top acting.

If you'd actually like to see a good movie, pick up Breach. Chris Cooper is, as always, great and Ryan Phillippe surprises in a wonderfully paranoid thriller. The Bridge and An Unreasonable Man are also worth a look (unless you're suicidal or still pissed about the 2000 election, respectively). Oh, and yes, Tom Selleck is still acting.
