I really like Denzel Washington, but the only movie I'm interested in seeing this weekend is 44 Inch Chest. Seriously, have a look at this cast of grizzled English masters: Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, John Hurt and Tom Wilkinson! How can you miss that? Plus, the story is right up my alley: a group of old friends plot to rough up one of their wife's lovers. Cheers to that!

The only other noteworthy releases on this slow weekend are Denzel's dystopian The Book of Eli and Jackie Chan's moronic The Spy Next Door. I'm not sure what ground The Book of Eli will cover that wasn't already done better by The Road. I'm equally unsure what ground The Spy Next Door will cover that wasn't already done better by my last bowel movement.
