Weekend Movie Guide: Feel the Payne!

Judging by the sour critical reception, it sounds like Max Payne probably sucks. They did cut one hell of a trailer, though. Harry Knowles loved Sex Drive, but then again he also loved Godzilla. How do you not go see W.? I mean, a film about George W. Bush directed by Oliver Stone. The curiosity factor alone will pull me in. What Just Happened? received a dismal response at Sundance this year. The original book by Art Linson, however, is a gem. Who knew Alec Baldwin was such a douchebag? Everyone.
Let's hope that The Secret Life of Bees concludes the career of Dakota Fanning. Seriously, isn't propping up children as movie stars sort of creepy? What parent would prostitute his or her kid out for money and fame? I'm a sap for the kinds of stories told by Morning Light. Plus, Paul Crowder gets my stamp of approval for everything he touches. The presence of Ellen Burstyn alone makes The Elephant King worth watching. The kids in Frontrunners scare the shit out of me. Few things are more repulsive than teen politicians.
