Is there a more captivating actress right now than Rebecca Hall? She alone would get me into the theater to see Please Give. The fact that Catherine Keener and Oliver Platt join her and Nicole Holofcener directs makes it the easiest decision of the weekend. Did we really need another A Nightmare on Elm Street? Seems to me that Jackie Earle Hailey is just being asked to re-do his awesome Rorschach voice from Watchmen. Will there at least be tons of naked boobs? Roger Kumble continues his descent down the directorial ladder with Furry Vengeance. It's a shame because Cruel Intentions was some seriously nasty fun.

Michael Caine is back and he's pissed. Harry Brown may feel like Carter redux, but how could that be a bad thing? Yes, please! What's the over | under on psychotic breaks during this weekend's showings of Phish 3D? Dirty Hands: The Art & Crimes of David Choe = solid documentary = sparse audiences. As always -- shame that. Anything with Brian Cox is worth watching, therefore The Good Heart is worth watching. The presence of Paul Dano makes me a little skittish, but I'm still going. Do you love ass-to-mouth porno (e.g. do you hate women?) They finally made a movie for you! It's called The Human Centipede. Avoid, decent people of earth.
