How can you resist a movie written and directed by Charlie Kaufman? | Photo courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics

I'm a little concerned about the middling reviews for Charlie Kaufman's Synecdoche, New York, but something tells me I'll completely love it. I've Loved You So Long is the other film high on my list this weekend. Kristin Scott Thomas--always good--is supposed to be amazing. How good is Let The Right One In? They are already making an American-ized version of this new variant of the vampire story. The dazzling success of High School Musical 3: Senior Year among adults is mystifying. Do we at least see Vanessa's vajajay?

Changeling looks like a rare miss from Clint Eastwood (usually a reliable director) and Angelina Jolie (usually a fine actor). Pride and Glory got buried by its distributor but is finally seeing the light of day. Farrell and Norton are always aces for me. I'll see anything with Anne Hathaway in it and Passengers has her. Is Stranded: I've Come From A Plane That Crashed on the Mountains the best movie title ever? Maybe. Fear(s) of the Dark has a cool Persepolis vibe to its animation. The less said about Saw V the better.
