I know Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are considered by most to be sort of old-hat by now, but I'm still excited to see The Other Guys. Obviously, Anchorman is a modern classic and Step Brothers is a daffy, surreal piece of brilliance. I don't expect as much from The Other Guys, but it should still be fun. I'm boycotting Step Up 3-D due to the absence of Brianna Evigan. Sorry, but Middle Men just looks boring. Luke Wilson's perfected disinterest works in a film like The Royal Tennenbaums, but here he just looks bored.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen? Can you believe that the director of Flipped was once a visionary comedic director (see here, here, here). Documentaries rule and documentaries about climbing rule even more. The Wildest Dream is, thus, required viewing. Twelve looks like cut-rate Bret Easton Ellis. I'd rather re-watch Metropolitan if I want to see snobby kids act self-important. Cairo Time looks like a little gem. Can Patricia Clarkson do any wrong? Patrik Age 1.5 is the most foreign-sounding movie EVER. But it sounds hilarious.
