I was excited about Body of Lies until I started to see some very middlingreviews. Still, Russell Crowe is always worth the price of admission. As for Leo...eh. Word is that Guy Ritchie returns to Lock, Stock and Snatch form with RocknRolla. As with Crowe, Gerard Butler is always rock-solid (literally!). Ernie Davis had a great story, but I'm guessing that The Express will be a starkand hammyversion of it. I'd watch Jennifer Carpenter read the phonebook to herself in the dark so obviously I'll go see Quarantine (show boobs please).

City of Ember has big stars, an interesting premise and very little advertising behind it. Which means that it probably blows. Go see Ashes of Time Redux, but make sure you also see the original. Some actors draw you into a movie and some repel you. In the case of Breakfast with Scot, Thomas Cavanagh will keep me out of the theater. I still have terrible dreams about Ed (stop fucking smiling!). Three tiny indies fill out the rest of the weekend: Call + Response; Good Dick (I prefer the original title Rock Hard Cock) and Happy-Go-Lucky.
