The early word has been so good on Star Trek that I'm actually starting to get a little nervous that my expectations are too high. Despite the great reviews for Star Trek, however, I have no doubt that Outrage is the best film opening this week (LAist review here). If Atom Egoyan makes a film, I go see it. Simple as that. Adoration is his latest work, starring the very underrated Rachel Blanchard. Loved Mos Def in Be Kind Rewind; love Donald Faison always, but not sure I'll care for Next Day Air. Seems a little...broad.

Nice to see Tilda Swinton playing something other than a cold, stiff woman. In Julia she finally gets to drop her admittedly wonderful sense of reserve. If Cedric Diggory, er, Edward Cullen wasn't in Little Ashes do you think we'd see it in a theater? Just saying. I'll admit it: I love dance movies so, yes, I'll be seeing Love 'N Dancing. The fact that it stars the ethereal Amy Smart is a bonus. Nice to see Luna and Bernal together again in Rudo y Cursi. Summer Hours takes place in France during the summer. That's all I need to know. I'm there.
