Weekend Movie Guide: Hello, Greenberg!

Before you read more...
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

For a certain sub-section of filmgoers (e.g. people who fucking rule), the arrival of a new Noah Baumbach movie is cause for celebration. By most accounts, Greenberg is as strong as The Squid and the Whale. This, folks, is a very, very good thing. I couldn't get through the book, but The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has me intrigued. Don't be scared off by the subtitles, people! I'm sort of tired of Kristen Stewart so The Runaways is low on my list. Plus, Dakota Fanning is just terrible, right? Pass. I typically hate movies with and about kids, but Diary of a Wimpy Kid has Chloe Moretz (who should kick-ass in Kick-Ass). Consider it a maybe.

Plan on getting incredibly stoned before going to see Hubble 3D. Plan on having a great time. Christ, what the fuck is going on with Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler. The Bounty Hunter may mark the low point of their long decline. How dare someone touch the magical Repo Man! Skip Repo Men. Please, America. Do it. It's a bit long in the tooth, but The Red Baron looks cool. Got to be better than Flyboys, don't you think? Demme + Young = solid but dull documentary. Only devotees should hop into the Neil Young Trunk Show. See What I'm Saying is about deaf entertainers. Is there sound or is it all subtitled?
